 Does this suggest a therapeutic application?  “In 98 per cent of mice and 80 per cent of guinea pigs it also prevented the low-level “hidden” infections.

Not sure, i believe this vaccine is for people negative of the HSV virus  1/2  to prevent getting the virus - they want to stop the epidemic and then after that work on a cure ... which I think personally is bullshit.

While it may be only prophylactic, this is very exciting!  I’ve not had an occurrence in years, but to remove the painful, embarrassing, but required and necessary “disclosure”, at risk of rejection-after 30 years of struggle is something I would gladly live with.  Go Dr. Friedman!  Godspeed!!!

“We’re extremely encouraged by the substantial immunizing effect our vaccine had in these animal models,” said the study’s principal investigator Dr. Friedman, in a press release.

Curing herpes is probably 10x more complicated than vaccinating against it, but we finally have people working on curative therapies for the past 10-15 years or so. The science just hasn't been there until recently.

A preventative vaccine could prevent encephalitis and it is also a far more proven method, preventing disease before it happens. The resources to create a preventative medicine is also far greater than that of a curative one.

Great to see another candidate progress forward- hope to see a phase I kick off in 2020. Remember all it takes is 1 goal to succeed, the more shots on goal the better

 

Sounds like Dr. Friedman was alluding to this paper in his conversation with @mikeherp
