A POSSIBLE new approach to viruses in general

Recommended Posts



Their work was on the Zika Virus, but it could be potentially be a breakthrough in the field of virology.  Quotes below.  I have also sent an email to Dr. Weaver and asked him about the potential this discovery/strategy will have on the HSV family.  Let's hope it is a breakthrough that could apply to all viruses !!!

"University of Nebraska–Lincoln researchers may have identified a vaccine that would defend against Zika virus without producing antibodies."

"Researcher Eric Weaver described the finding as exciting and novel. He and his team are confident that future experiments will yield significant findings that could have a profound impact on the field of vaccinology."

"If we can figure out the mechanism, we might be able to apply it to other vaccine strategies," said Weaver, an assistant professor of biological sciences affiliated with the Nebraska Center for Virology. "This would be a huge leap for immunology and vaccine research."

Only cure, true cure, will be to cut out the viral DNA (or a few key sequences) to stop the virus from replicating. Vaccines may prime your system to control it better but will never cure it.

      My Neurologist prescribed me Escitalopram for the nerve pain. Really haven’t started taking it, I was hoping the nerve pain just stops. Some way some how he told me that I will never have an outbreak and I haven’t..Weird?  Anyway I’m married, for 15years. When I discovered I had HSV my wife got tested as we’ll found out she had it since college!! Didn’t know that the fever blisters she got in college was HSV...I trust that this is how I got it. But wouldn’t you know she has no symptoms at all other than she knows she has it. There maybe something to this that there is something else wrong here besides HSV.

      It’s not our heads that cause the sores I think this wound be very stupid for doctors to say as you can clearly see a sore.. however I do think if you are focused on a sensation constantly you will zone in on this feeling and always notice it I suffer from anxiety anyway in general so I do think some of my sensations maybe anxiety related.. but no or course cuts/ blisters  cannot be

      I've noticed a trend of people sharing stories about doctors telling them the tingling sensation is all in their head or caused by the patient themselves. My doctors did the same thing. I explained that I am not making myself confused and dizzy nor am I causing my skin to cut itself open on my penis and lips.
