Unfortunately it only reduced hsv2 transmission by 20% on average so it isn't worthwhile to market. Finally after 15 years of testing of this vaccine in one trial or another, we finally can put it to rest and move forward. At least there was some terrific information on hsv2 obtained from all trials on the vaccine over that time though.
