Use of lubricants with anal sex could increase risk of HIV
Date:5/25/2010

ase III trial of PrEP involving men who have sex with men in South America, Africa and the United States is expected to report results by early next year. Yet, if either of these approaches is found effective in clinical trials, they will do no good if those most at risk don't use them. Other research presented today sheds light on this issue. Summaries of all three studies are provided below.

According to the study's statistical analysis that considered the HIV status, gender, condom use and study site, participants who used lubricants before receptive anal intercourse were three times more likely to have a rectal STI. Although the analysis didn't consider the specific lubricants being used, it may be that certain types of products are more irritating to the lining of the rectum than others, which could increase men and women's vulnerability to rectal STIs, the researchers suggest.

The study, which was conducted between October 2006 and December 2008, examined the rectal health and behaviors of 879 men and w
