SARASOTA, Fla., Nov. 21, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- "Herpes is one of those virus that's just amazing at evading our immune system," says Harvey M. Friedman, a professor at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine.   How does the virus do it? His team discovered that HSV produces a pair of proteins that stop the human immune system from producing the HSV antibodies, those that identify and help destroy the virus. Most herpes vaccines prevent the virus from entering the cells.  The new vaccine, developed by Friedman, attacks the viral molecules that help the virus hide from the immune system. Friedman notes that the new vaccine, "... keeps the virus from hiding from those antibodies".  So far, the vaccine has been tested on monkeys (macaque) and guinea pigs. Monkey and humans have different HSV symptoms. The researchers found the monkey's immune systems responded in the way they anticipated. The vaccine was very effective in the guinea pigs. It protected most of the guinea pigs from herpes, and reduced the presence of the virus in the infected guinea pigs. Humans and guinea pigs have similar HSV symptoms.
"I really do think this is more promising than other vaccine research out there," Friedman said. "I've never seen anything published that comes close to our efficacy."  Friedman says that the vaccine is groundbreaking since it prevents the virus from evading the immune system. He notes, "And that could really open up the field, not just for herpes. There are so many chronic, persistent, recurrent viruses that we could use this strategy on." 
About Gene-Eden-VIR and Novirin
For those who are already infected, or prefer natural treatments over vaccines, Lilac Corp suggests using Gene-Eden-VIR or Novirin, safe and effective natural herpes treatments already on the market. Two clinical studies, published in the medical journals Drug Design, Development and Therapy and Clinical and Translational Medicine, showed that Gene-Eden-VIR and Novirin decreased genital herpes outbreaks without any side effects. One of the studies also showed that the herbal treatment are better than acyclovir, valacyclovir, and famciclovir, the three leading drugs used in the treatment of genital herpes.
