Researchers are hard at work on new treatments to fight genital herpes:
  • Microbicides. Microbicides are one option scientists are exploring in the search for new genital herpes treatments.
  • New drugs. Scientists also are working on new drugs that keep the herpes virus from replicating. To replicate, a virus has to duplicate its DNA exactly. Scientists hope these new drugs will prevent the virus from doing that.
  • Vaccine. Everyone would like a vaccine that protects against HSV-2, but experimental products have had mixed and somewhat discouraging results.
