Anti-HIV gel proven safe, tolerable for women
Date:2/25/2008

ally safe. Women in the study were asked to use condoms in addition to the gel.

The researchers found no disruption of liver, blood or kidney function in each group of women using a different gel regimen, including those given a placebo gel that looked and felt identical to the tenofovir gel.

The study included 200 sexually active HIV-negative women enrolled at UAB, Bronx-Lebanon Hospital Center in New York and the National AIDS Research Institute in Pune, India. Participants were age 19 to 50, and 64 percent were married.

In addition to the safety findings, the researchers found a significant willingness by women to follow the anti-HIV treatment guidelines. Eighty percent of the women instructed to use the gel within two hours of having sex said they followed instructions, and 83 percent instructed to use the gel daily said they had done so in the week prior.

Hoesley said if the gel were approved to help prevent HIV infection, more than 90 percent of the study volunteers said they would seriously consider using it, regardless of the regimen, to protect their sexual health.

We asked women How acceptable is this as a prevention option, is it too messy, is it a nuisance, and will you use it? Our study showed they will use it and theyre not bothered by the gel, Hoesley said.

The active ingredient in tenofovir gel is a class of anti-retroviral drugs called nucleotide reverse transcriptase inhibitors, which act against HIV by blocking the virus ability to replicate and grow inside the body.
