I will definitely share results though it will be hard to separate the ebv/immunosuppression impacts for a long time, if its ever possible.
I hope the gilenya works for you too!
You are aware that 17-AGG as well as other hsp90 inhibitors can be readily purchased online for like $145/mg? Too bad it requires lifelong dosage, which leads me to how I found this thread by accident. I was trying to see if combining the incredibly effective hsp90 inhibitors with an ebv antiviral if there is one would work better.
Can anyone buy it? It looks like it's for research purposes only. I haven't looked at hsp90 inhibitors for months and my memory is bogged down with ebv-rituxan now, but haven't several hsp90 inhibitors failed in pre-clinicals due to safety issues? Who cares about the cost and lifelong dependency if it will kill you in a month! Lol. I would wait for one to make it through trials and then some before taking it myself... The primary reason for its development is life-threatening cancer. They do some scary things for cancer. Be careful! (Or am I mistaken about the safety issues?)
There is another thread on TIMS by scott1 that might interest you. He used avonex, valtrex, and some supplement/nutritional things to get ebv under control. Jimmylegs has a thread on optimizing nutrient levels which would help your body naturally defend and repair from ebv. Lots of interesting stuff here!
Thanks and good luck!
