Basseterre, St.Kitts (August 31st , 2107):- St.Kitts-Nevis Chief Medical Officers Past and Present have declared that they were unaware of any Vaccine Trials taking place in the Federation.
Dr. Patrick Martin, who was Chief Medical Officer from October 1st 2004 to 16th June 2016 said Monday he was not aware of a herpes vaccine trial in St. Kitts and Nevis during that period.
Media reports in the United States state that St. Kitts and Nevis were involved in off-shore testing of an experimental herpes vaccine from April to August in 2016. Despite the fact this was happening, it was not made public and people have been hoping that there will be a genital herpes treatment they can use to help alleviate their problem. STDs like Herpes are unfortunately common and the need to try and eradicate them is high in many circles as the ramifications of untreated transmitted diseases can cause a lot of problems in those who have them. There is now a herpes test that can be done at home to help people feel less shame and hopefully get tested quickly, as going to a doctor’s office may be a worry for them which can put them off causing more difficulty in getting it sorted. This information that has come to light about the trials may push future trials back as restrictions may become tighter so this doesn’t happen under the government’s nose again.
“I was active as Chief Medical Officer (CMO) from 1st October 2004 to 16th June 2016. During the period, no vaccine trial in the Federation came to my attention,” said Dr. Martin.
The current Medical Chief Dr. Hazel Laws in a statement released from the office of the Medical Chief shared a similar sentiment when it was stated in the release that no government official or agency including the Office of the Medical Chief, the Medical Board or the Ministry of Health were ever approached about any Herpes Vaccine Trials taking place in St.Kitts.
Neither the Food and Drug Administration nor a safety panel known as an institutional review board, or IRB as well as the Medical Board, Ministry of Health and the Office of the Medical Chief on St.Kitts monitored the testing of the vaccine which creators say prevents herpes outbreaks. If you are looking for treatment for any aliment whether, for herpes or anything else, it is worth getting in touch with a trained medical professional, who can prescribe you medication – such as valtrex – for your illness.
