A pc might get turned into a vampire, assuming he can get free, can anything be done to cure his affliction? I'm guessing something like miracle or wish would work, but anything less extreme?
Undead Type says:
•Not affected by raise dead and reincarnate spells or abilities. Resurrection and true resurrection can affect undead creatures. These spells turn undead creatures back into the living creatures they were before becoming undead.
So using resurrection (if he fails save?) will cure him.
The GM could always make up an awesome quest line involving the collection of various rare and dangerous herbs for a very eccentric hermit to create a cure out of.
That Hermit would probably either turn out to be an avatar of Pharasma... or a necromancer seeking ingredients to complete his phylactory.
Keep in mind, vamparism in pathfinder only happens AFTER the victim is dead. It isn't a blood born illness. Removing it would leave you with a corpse, not a healthy person.
Exept it would because it says it does.
These spells turn undead creatures back into the living creatures they were before becoming undead.
It does not say it turns you back into what you were when you became undead or that it removes the undeadness from you. It specifically states it makes you back into the living creature you were before you became undead.

Good point. You have 10 years per caster level to use these spells on the afflicted person. If they have been undead long enough even these spells will not be able to bring them back.
So the more ancient undead are probably out of your reach to help but anyone who has been made undead recently should be able to be saved.
