A new product to block HIV infection

Researchers have shown that it may be possible to prevent sexual transmission of the AIDS virus &to=http:// english.pravda.ru/region/2002/09/16/36686.html ' target=_blank>HIV with a compound now in the experimental stage. Female monkeys who received it vaginally were protected from infection by a simian variation of HIV. Such a compound would be helpful to women whose partners are at high risk of the disease.

Many &to=http:// english.pravda.ru/science/19/94/377/13998_brain.html ' target=_blank>women around the world do not have the power to refuse sex or require their partners to use condoms, so public health officials have been seeking an odorless, tasteless compound a woman could apply privately to block HIV infection.

A new product shown to work in female rhesus monkeys may be what they have been looking for, says Voice of America.
