Description

ME-609 is a Medivir’s combination treatment against labial herpes which suppresses the virus while moderating the immune system’s reaction. Clinical trials demonstrated that cold sores become far smaller, and in a significant number of cases, do not arise. This concept is highly competitive since none of the market’s current pharmaceuticals can prevent the incidence of cold sores.
