"volunteers needed for study comparing Famvir and Valtrex"

All of those new listings are studies looking at the effectiveness of using a one-day dose of Famvir for obs. It's a neat way to get some free antivirals.

Check out the link sg posted for specific locations for testing sites in:
Arkansas
Arizonia
California
Florida
Georgia
Kentucky
Pennsylvania
South Carolina
Texas
Utah

Here are some details:

Novartis Pharmaceuticals Corporation is conducting a clinical research trial to find out if a 1-day treatment with the drug famciclovir is safe and effective in people who have recurrent genital herpes. This study will evaluate famciclovir given twice daily for one day compared to valacyclovir given twice daily for 3 days. The reason for this study is to find out which of these two medicines gives better relief for recurrent genital herpes by comparing the two different doses and durations. The dose and duration of famciclovir is investigational and not FDA-approved, however, the dose and duration of valacyclovir is FDA-approved. “Investigational” means that the drug is being tested and is not approved for sale in the United States by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). If you agree to participate in this study you will have an equal chance (like flipping a coin) of being treated with either 1-day treatment of famciclovir or 3-day treatment of valacyclovir.

Trial phase: Phase 3

Participation Duration: This study involves follow–up of one genital herpes outbreak plus a monitoring time to second recurrence. Your participation could be up to 1 year, depending on when your genital herpes recur.

Muffin's notice is from quite a while ago and when I clicked on the link, there wasn't anything about that trial there any more.

Check out www.clinicaltrials.gov and do a search for "herpes" or "hsv". Maybe you'll find something similar that is still recruiting.
