URMC researchers planning herpes vaccine trial

Updated: Tuesday, February 25 2014, 06:22 AM EST

Rochester, N.Y. -- Researchers at the University of Rochester School of Medicine are planning a trial for a vaccine that could prevent the spread of herpes.

Researchers said the virus sometimes doesn’t cause symptoms in adults, and new mothers can pass it on to their newborn children.

The local trial will test the safety and effectiveness of a vaccine.

Participants must be 18 or older, in good health and not pregnant. For more information, contact the Infectious Disease Research Group at (585) 275-0123.
