International Rectal Microbicide Advocates cheers launch of world's third rectal microbicide trial
Date:10/13/2010

lycerin (an additive found in many types of products) to make it more amenable for rectal use.

"It is very encouraging to see the rectal microbicide field moving forward," said IRMA Community Vice-Chair Kadiri Audu, who also heads up the IRMA Nigeria chapter, "and I look forward to trials taking place in Africa as well." He continued, "Gay men and other men who have sex with men in Africa have high rates of HIV infection, and we know unprotected heterosexual anal sex is relatively common on the continent and contributes a sizable number of HIV infections. As much as we need vaginal microbicides to give women an extra prevention tool, rectal microbicides for the women, men, and transgender individuals who engage in anal intercourse are absolutely essential as well."

While the rectal microbicide field has gained significant momentum, more focus and resources are necessary. In 2010, U.S. $7.2 million is being spent globally on rectal microbicide research. IRMA has calculated that annual investments must increase by 40% from 2011 2014, to U.S. $10 million/year and must increase further to U.S. $44 million (a six-fold increase) in the years 2015 2020 to ensure a minimum of candidate products are moving through the research pipeline into advanced testing for effectiveness.
