Autumn 2023: as usual SPHERE magazine is 16 pages in A4 print version, and the e-version is in large text, single column, for easy reading on a screen.
Each magazine has pages of medical research on
this virus, and new facts about herpes simplex
treatments and herpes vaccines. In this magazine:
Articles on the five different vaccine projects going on around the world. One is recruiting in many sites in the USA.
A report from our representative at the doctors’ conference in June 2023.
How to read the internet – with suspicion?!
Self-help reports from readers… And lots more!
Back copies of Sphere
You can also order back copies of Sphere. For instance you can read a talk on the psychology of having herpes simplex given by Dr John Green on “Getting your head around it”.
He made us laugh! A total of ten pages printed in two successive journals. We print an almost verbatim report of his talk including the question and answer session and his views on the (non-issue) of the Crown Prosecution Service’s guidelines on ‘deliberate infection with an STI’. His attitude was that if he was called as an expert witness, he would use the court to ridicule the idea of attempting to bring a case about this. But he does not expect, ever, to see a person in the dock for transmitting herpes simplex. He laughed and said something about how you cannot call herpes simplex ‘a serious condition’. His whole talk was very amusing and the report is sprinkled with [LAUGHTER] notes so that readers can feel what it was like to be in the room. (They are in SPHEREs 21/3 and 21/4.)
