Clinical trials take 6 to 8 - 12 months. Currently the dr Jerome study is using rodents. After guinea pig he can go to primates. So 2 to 3 years I would say till clinical trials. But alot of this research has been sped up by the HIV cure. It has now been proven virus can be removed from the human body.
So if everything goes according to plan
3.5 to 5.5 years. Worst case late 2025/2026, best case late 2023.
By 2030 most viruses will be curable.
Viral infection are becoming a public hazard and massive economic burden. China it self is investing alot to fight HIV, hell they are giving out HIV pill for free. Another example HSV is also one of the leading cause for blindness, so image how much money need to be wasted on people going blind.
One way or another HSV will be cure.
If you're interested look up HIV cured in mice.
Dude, you just got severely censured by Mods for denying the link between HSV and HIV and spreading dangerous misinformation.
This isn't the right time to begin spouting off your crackpot theories again.
