Market Report Description

The North America Herpes Simplex Virus Treatment Market would witness market growth of 1.8% CAGR during the forecast period (2022-2028).

HSV-1 is mostly spread through contact with surfaces in or near the mouth, saliva, or sores that have the virus present. Less frequently, HSV-1 can spread from the mouth to the genital region and produce genital herpes. The danger of transmission is most serious when there are open sores, whether on the skin or in the mouth. HSV-1-positive individuals are not in danger of reinfection, but such individuals are still at risk of contracting HSV-2. HSV-2 is primarily spread during intercourse by contact with the anal or genital surfaces, skin, lesions, or fluids of an infected person.

HSV-2 can spread even if the skin seems normal and frequently does so without causing any symptoms. Neonatal herpes (HSV-1 & HSV-2) can, in extremely rare cases, be passed from mother to infant during birth. Currently, several herpes simplex virus control treatments are available in the market, like vaccines, pills, etc. A vaccine called SB208141 that GSK created has just finished Phase III of clinical trials.

Research and development efforts to create and offer competent and effective preventive solutions as vaccine candidates are additionally propelling the market's expansion. Also, since there is no licensed vaccine or treatment for herpes on the market, there is a greater need to produce and manufacture novel products.
