By the way, they are working on a vaccine for herpes, see "New vaccine
prevents herpes in women"

Thanks for sharing this. Interesting that this article is 3.5 years
old....and my quick search of PubMed didn't yield this although I
could have missed it. The article notes it'll be a while before the
vaccine is through its current trial.

Fascinating and peculiar that it only worked in women! I wonder why?
But great too, since the people at the most threat from genital herpes
are neonates.

Thanks for sharing this and your ideas.

I think if it were feasible, there would be a vaccine for HSV already.

A hopeful but somewhat unlikely thought. The disease doesn't cause so
much trouble (tho lesions may facilitate infections like HIV).

Its a very likely thought actually. Lots of people have tried to produce
HSV vaccines. Its just not been successful yet.

Actually, I saw some of the research, and it was rather encouraging.
There are times when I think the whole business has gotten so corrupt
that absolutely nothing that won't guarantee a huge multi-billion
dollar return for the stockholders and CEOs will be ignored.

The situation hasn't QUITE gotten there yet.
