Does anyone have any updates on pritevilir's results? I can't find anything on the net. Is it still doing good? Last thing i saw was when it got fasttracked.

The trial is ongoing.  I believe it will be completed around september or octrober of this year.

Things are on track as far as I know.

 

EDIT:

https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT03073967

Estimated Primary Completion Date : August 2019
Estimated Study Completion Date :

October 2019

 

This means, it is estimated that all data for all aspects of the trial, will be collected by Oct 2019 (all data related to the primary end point will be collected by August).  I'm not sure exactly by when the report would be published--perhaps a few months later?

By the way, I continue to have high hopes for this.  Unlkess something goes wrong, I think it might have a decent chance to get approved.

I hope so, if this fails then I’m afraid I’ll be ingesting yellow jasmine (If you watch Outlander you’ll know what I’m on about). 

If you haven’t seen it then watch it, it’s about two hot people having loads of amazing sex in Scotland 200 years ago ;)

Apologies, I’ve gone slightly off subject here!

We are waiting patiently for the data results to be published later on this year, about October time. 

If these are good we are hoping it doesn’t need to go to a phase 3 category and that it will be prescribed to immunocompromised patients, this could take another good couple of months. Depending on which county you live in, you could potentially get your hands on the drug then.

If it’s good to go on immuncompromised patients then perhaps trials can start on healthy folks, this is when we need to get together as a group and start making some noise with a petition.

Say everything goes accordingly does this mean it could be used for genital hsv1?

Yes, it will be a treatment for both strains, regardless of site of infection :)

Josh Bloom stated a few months ago that he thought pritelivir may be approved within 2 years.  He did note that he's going out on a limb with that prediction.

But it seems reasonable.  Earlier results suggested it's twice as effective as valtrex.  The only question is safety.

It's being tested in the USA.  Because it's fast tracked, it could be approved based on the phase 2 results without needing phase 3.

Data will be collected by Oct this year.  I'm guessing it may take a few months to analyze and publish the results, so maybe end of this year or so.

Then, if those results show safety and efficacy (the main issue would probably be safety), then they submit an application for approval.  I'm not sure how long that takes, but maybe another 6-12 months?  

So yeah, altogether a bit less than 2 years.

But, it would be approved for immunocompromised.  Others would have to try to get it off label (I believe it may be possible).

And it wouldn't exactly be a functional cure.  Even with pritelivir, there was still shedding and outbreaks, though rarely.  Maybe combined with valtrex for some people it might approach a cure like effect (at least while you are taking it).  

Still, I'm guessing it would be a significant difference maker for many people.

I was just about to say this. But since i didn't see anything new on the trial i was curious if anybody would of seen or hear anything. Not sure if it can go straight to the market without phase 3. I just hope they find a way to reduce the toxicity and it becomes available soon. The results just sounds so much better than valacyclovir. I'll take anything i can get to reduce transmission.

My understanding is that a drug CAN go to approval based on phase 2, if it has been fast tracked.  I've looked this up and I understand it is correct.  Pritelivir has been fast tracked.  That's why I believe Bloom claimed it could be approved within 2 years.

I think it could help, but keep in mind that it's only being tested in immunocompromised people.  Still, I think if it is approved, "healthy" people will be able to get their hands on it sooner or later.  I really believe that.  It will be out in the market.

Toxicity issues were reported but that was because they gave the poor individuals 70 times the recommended dose.

If you gave anybody 70 times the recommend dose of anything, paracetamol, ibuprofen, viagra etc whatever they’d suffer toxicity issues. 

Imagine the trials for viagra though, 70 times the recommend dose and a load of men with rock hard dicks for days on end!

Come to think of it, I think it was chimps they gave 70 doses to. 

Imagine that, a lab full of horny chimps for days, now my job doesn’t seem so bad!

      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.
