Divine Corporation's Personal Lubricants Shown to Block Cancer-causing Viruses in a Study by the National Cancer Institute
Date:1/22/2008

An Independent Study by the National Cancer Institute Revealed Divine No. 9 and Divine No. 8 to be Highly Effective in Inhibiting Viruses that Cause

Cervical, Vaginal and Anal Cancers in vitro

ORLANDO, Fla., Jan. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Divine Corporation announced today an unprecedented discovery in personal lubricants that promises to revolutionize the market. The National Cancer Institute's Laboratory of Cellular Oncology has completed a laboratory study of Divine Corporation's No. 9 and No. 8 personal lubricants and determined they are highly effective in blocking infection by certain strains of human papillomaviruses (HPVs) that have been proven to cause cervical, vaginal and anal cancers [1]. Divine No. 9 and Divine No. 8 personal lubricants now offer the possibility of HPV protection while at the same time enhancing the pleasure of intimate contact.

"We began by combining natural ingredients to create the best performing intimate lubricant on the market; one that would have unique and delightful play characteristics and feel great on your skin," said Stephanie Fresonke, President of Divine Corporation. "Thanks to the breakthrough work of the National Cancer Institute research team, Divine has now been shown to be an extremely potent human papillomavirus inhibitor in their laboratory studies. While clinical tests have not yet been performed, it is tremendously exciting to offer our customers the possibility to combine pleasure and protection in a single bottle."

Divine's unique formulations include an array of natural ingredients, most notably an extract from sea kelp called carrageenan. The National Cancer Institute study, "Carrageenan is a Potent Inhibitor of Papillomavirus Infection," has shown carrageenan to be an extremely effective topical microbicide for a broad range of sexually transmitted HPVs in vitro. The experiments compared a range of consumer products containing carrageenan. Divine No. 8 and Divine No. 9 proved to be the most potent virus inhibitors of any product in the study, blocking HPV infectivity even when diluted a million-fold.
