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!

      I would not be the first one, plenty of others here on the forum who get recurrent OBs despite heavy doses of antivirals. The blisters appear exactly in/around the spot where I had my first OB 4 years ago, plus all the symptoms I have are those commonly described as HSV-2 symptoms. In my opinion, it's a clear case.  But your suggestion is definitely an option that should not be ruled out. I'll wait until I get a bad enough OB again so I can go get another swab test. The outbreak needs to be bad enough to be able to break the blisters to get the liquid from inside right? I recall hearing something like this when I got tested years ago. The doctor used a swab that had tiny needles on it that would pop the blisters open. Do you know if this is right, i.e. you will not get a positive swab just from a mild OB / redness?

      90% elimination of the latent virus in thr ganglia probably will be a functional cure. Sure the small remaining amount can reactivate, but thete is a viral load threshhold for transmission. More than likely that won't be enough to cause transmission, or enough shedding for transmission. Damage enough of the latent virus and we are good to go. There is already a Crispr trial on humans going on right now https://newatlas.com/crispr-trial-underway-vertex-gene-therapy/58643/ So we are just waiting on Keith Jerome's lab and Excision Biotherapeutics to begin their trials. I've beem following Crispr for years now, and it keeps gettimg more accurate. I believe researchers at Duke have recently made a big breakthrough on accuracy, by changing the level of regulation instead of cutting DNA. I wonder if these labs collaborate with others such as Jerome's?

      No need to be tired at all, I'm sorry of you cannot accept the facts surrounding testing, but here they are. Your note is full of inaccuracies so let's iron those out. I don't need you to believe anything, I am just putting the facts out there. Here's a few studies: https://jcm.asm.org/content/37/5/1632 Here we have 29 patients with recent HSV-2 infection... 100% turned positive, 0% false negatives. https://jcm.asm.org/content/36/3/845/figures-only Here we have over 1,000 positive samples from people who have swabbed positive and compared to three different blood tests - over 95% accurate. https://jcm.asm.org/content/26/4/662?ijkey=9ebe349f98ed94f019ed788604c8fa19864a2c7e&keytype2=tf_ipsecsha Here we have 76 people who swabbed positive, the Westernblot detected 99% and an immunoblot 96%. Can you elaborate what is vague about these items of research. I'm sure now you'll want to review the references to these papers where you'll find even more. Some of them are in easy text for the beginner. So you stand corrected, it is in fact your comments that are spreading misinformation. That is not tolerated on this website. Also what nonsense that people do not get lesions to swab upon infection? Where did you read that? Hello Dolly? I'm afraid it is back to the books for you to do some more research before having such a rambunctious spew like above. STOP IT - we are all tired of your unsubstantiated drivel. This is 2019 we want something tangible, something real, something sound and wholesome and not drooling rants equal of the park bench antics of the drunks at 2am Sunday morning! I will NEVER stop because no matter how immature, how bombastic, how fantastic, how inaccurate, how frivolous, how false the spew that ends up on this website - the TRUTH will always be the light, the love, the guidance, the deliverance and the justice... no matter how many capitalised swear words are thrown!

      I took an IgG blood test 6 months after the episode. HSV-2 was negative (less than .91) and HSV-1 was high at 3.18

      My comment was about THE BLOOD TEST!  You’re 95-100% accuracy for it?  Garbage.  Pure garbage.  You might as well have pulled that number out of your ass. Google search HIV accuracy... almost every medical site will tell you 4th generation HIV testing is as close to 99.9% percent you can possibly get after a certain period of elapsed time.  They will pretty much GUARANTEE you that you are indeed negative if you have a negative test. That defined certainty of accuracy WILL NOT AND CAN NOT be found for HSV blood tests.  You get vague descriptions of it’s accuracy from almost every site you visit.  NO CERTAINTIES.  Thousands of us on these forums KNOW the test isn’t accurate. When your score is between 1.1 and 3.5, this could be a false positive.  Certain sites list almost 1 in 2 tests can be false positives.  50 fucking percent!! And you want me to believe the test is 95-100% accurate? How come so many sites also seem to dance around the possibility of false negatives?   All that isn’t necessary in HIV testing.  Because if YOU DO get a low positive, the confirmatory HIV test checks for the actual VIRUS in your system.   And there are almost NO FALSE NEGATIVES.    NO HSV BLOOD TEST CAN DO THAT! Not even the Western Blot.  At the end of the day, it’s just a more detailed look at antibodies.  And many sites will tell you a “small” number of people may never develop. How small are we talking???? That can be any number.   Trash. And again, a large margin of people with herpes DO NOT GET LESIONS to be swabbed.  Google tells you that.  If majority of herpes infected have nothing to swab,  well that pretty much makes PCRs and cultures worthless for the most part doesn’t it?  If there is nothing to swab after a year, in your words, you are clear of herpes. BULLSHIT! So Wilso, just stop it.  You have never done scientific testing in a lab yourself on herpes. You are not a doctor.  You are constantly telling people false information.  Assuring them of promises you have no authority to make.  I’ve seen you do it time and time again.  Do you have regrets???????????  Im tired of your lies.
