Both HSV1 and HSV2 can cause “genital herpes”. Up to 80% of Americans have HSV1, which is usually associated with “cold sores” around the mouth, but can also be transmitted to the genitals via oral sex. Up to 30% of new cases of genital herpes are due to HSV1 – and most of the time, it’s been transmitted via oral sex. Since most people (up to 80% of Americans) have HSV1 – whether or not they ever have noticeable cold sores – and since most people do not use any sort of “protection” during oral

I have genital herpes. I am a willing participant when you come up with a cure for sure! This has definitely worsened my clinical depression!

I had shingles in January of this year along with being diagnosed with AIDS with a CD4 of 6. The Shingles cleared up and then in March I started my HIV med Atripla. Brought my viral load from 70,000 to about 50 in a month and cd4 up to 50. However I was hospitalized for low potasium levels. My eye started to have persistent throbbing and stabbing pain. I was never confirmed as to what was going on. The pain lasted for about a week and then went away.Was put on Valcyte but have lost my vision

I've been taking raltegravir for three years. My herpes simplex outbreaks, which I've had for over a decade, haven't changed in frequency or intensity. Obviously I'm just one person and not a randomized controlled trial, but I'd be curious to hear what other peoples' experiences are.

I am interested in this research. My finace has herpes and I of course risk being infected. Can you keep me informed about the progress of this development. Thank you.

This is great news. Especially to the thousands of people with this illness! I believe that it is very harsh to discourage or demolish hope by posting harsh words. So what if it is not a cure. Its a step towards progress on the fight for the cure. Never lose hope because that is all we have. There will be a cure and when there is, you will be stronger than ever before. You are already stronger than the average joe from living with this problem everyday. Never lose hope.
