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!

      Any guys in Dallas with HSV? Would love to connect with someone since I’m new to the condition.

      I get a generic 3 month supply of valtrex in the US for about $50...that’s one pill a day at 1000mg a pill.

      Makes complete sense to me.  My mother never exhibited HSV1, but never exhibited.  I am all for whatever it takes!

      I’ve been seeing this guy for two months now. I’ve had hsv2 down there for 3 years...never have I spread it to anyway, and had a relationship of a year and had sex with the same guy the whole year. So, when I started seeing this guy, I told him up front about it. Told him it really isn’t a huge deal and I’ve bever passed it but there’s a small risk. So 5 weeks in, we’ve had sex a few times and 17days after we had protected sex (I’m also on daily antiviral pills) he texts me saying he can’t pee because it is so painful. I am so depressed I passed it to him. I know he agreed to the risk, but neither of us actually “thought” i would pass it, if that makes sense. Always a risk, I know, and as I said, he agreed. But he is upset now. In denial and went almost a full week unable to urinate because he was in such bad pain. He did have a blister show up around Day 6 of the peein problem so it’s def herpes. Unsure what to say to him. I feel terrible for bringing that upon him. Anyone have similar situations? Also haven’t talked in a few days. Giving him time before trying to start a convo. I’m sure he doesn’t want to talk right now.
