"I think a vaccine is almost certain"
We have had many, many disappointments in the past, but I truly believe there are 2 projects that will lead to 2 new ways of dealing with this condition:

1--A preventative vaccine: http://www.einstein.yu.edu/news/releases/1076/experimental-herpes-vaccine-upends-traditional-approach-and-shows-promise/

2--A therapeutic vaccine (for treatment of those infected and reduction of shedding): http://www.genocea.com/platform-pipeline/pipeline/gen003-for-genital-herpes/qa-about-gen-003/

The second is further down the pipeline.

Someday, if both are approved, they can be combined to almost eliminate risk, practically speaking. I hope the preventative vaccine is picked up by a pharma company. Let me know if it already is--I'd like to track it!

Thanks--good health to all!!!
