H., Medical Director 50 million Americans have GHI (genital herpes infections).This ranks GHI as being one of the most prevalent medical conditions in the country.

Will there ever emerge a vaccine that will prevent transmission of GHI?

This article will start out simple and become more complicated as you read on.

Further reading will add greater depth to your reference information, but you need only read a few paragraphs to get the gist.

Vaccines for GHI have been being produced for at least twenty years, especially in Europe.

Numerous centers in Italy, England, Bulgaria, and elsewhere have produced many different versions of Herpes Simplex Type 2 vaccines, many of which have been submitted to rigorous human testing.

These vaccines have been used BOTH for prevention of transmission of GHI as well as for treatment of patients with GHI.The results of almost all of this information, when looking at the literature honestly, is that the vaccines may offer a very slight benefit for preventing transmission and treating infection. Specifically, Mastrolorenzo’s previous work in Florence used multiple injections of vaccine over many weeks to produce a modest reduction in outbreak frequency among infected women. Vaccine developed in England gave initially high marks for reducing recurrences and preventing transmission.American study of the same vaccine did not reveal the same findings.Both vaccines are available for those interested, but one might have to travel to that country to take it.The Bottom Line: There MAY be some benefit from these vaccines to reducing recurrence frequency.They do NOT eradicate the virus from the body, however, and do not prevent recurrences.Numerous articles have suggested that these European vaccines also reduce transmission of GHI to non-infected partners. Read this carefully, though, before you consider booking a flight: It is difficult to separate out from the effect of the vaccine the other effect of “patient counseling”, that is, being “smart” about managing GHI.Smart partners work at not transmitting the illness.Partners who go to a Herpes clinic and take vaccines are smarter for the experience and likely more careful.That alone would decrease the transmission rate, as it should.A vaccine uses a product of the body’s immune system to kill virus particles, either antibody (liquid protein floating around in the blood and body fluid) which is directly targeted toward proteins on the virus, OR lymphocytes (white blood cells that are turned on by the immune system to fight infection) that are targeted toward some of the same proteins on the virus.
