It is important to look back at the history of herpes research in order to predict the future and its endless possibilities. At this point, the researchers are working on herpes vaccine that can prevent the virus from spreading, and on herpes treatment that can permanently stop herpes outbreaks. Unfortunately, ever since the first herpes vaccine research began in 1920, none of the studies and trials were successful in eliminating the virus from human body. Over the past 40 years scientists have published more than 250 research papers and enrolled more than 15,000 people in different herpes related studies. As a matter of fact, herpes virus studies has been getting good funding since it became a national health hazard. For example, in 2012 Genocea received $30 million for a herpes vaccine trial. Unfortunately, not that long ago they discontinued one of the very promising Gen-004 vaccine development.
Here are some good news. There is a number of clinical trials for HSV-1 and HSV-2 in progress right now. If you like to dig deeper, here is a discussion about it on honeycomb.click. One of the clinical trials is very promising and it has already reached Phase 2. Genocea 003 trial began in November 2015 and the research should be finished in January 2017. Although it is focused more on stopping viral shedding than on curing the disease, it may be a great step towards developing a herpes cure.
Some other great news came out recently. Admedus released interim of Phase 2 clinical trial. The study shows a 90% decrease in herpes outbreaks without any safety issues. This sound very promising, but we will have to wait for the final results, which are due in September 2016, to see the whole picture.
That being said, there is no cure for herpes as of now, and it is important to keep in mind that there might not be one in the near future, or ever. So if you have herpes, don’t put your life on hold and wait for a miracle to happen, just live your life to the fullest and enjoy every minute of it.
