The decision has however ensured that there will be no early release of the data for discussion at the 16th International AIDS Conference this August in Toronto, which otherwise would have led to circumcision being the big news of the global AIDS meeting.

According to Robert Bailey, the University of Illinois epidemiologist who is lead investigator of the Kenyan study, ‘It doesn't mean we don't have a 60 percent figure, or better.’ The interim results remain a secret, even to the investigators involved, because the trial is known as "blinded." This is to ensure the scientific integrity of the eventual findings.

Bailey also mentioned that there was a possibility that the monitoring board would look at the data once again in six to eight months to determine whether an early halt to the experiment was warranted.

The study involved 3,000 previously uncircumcised men in Kisumu where circum
