Preventing AIDS Comes in the Form of a Cream

Scientists have made a giant step in preventing the spread of AIDS and the weapon is in a cream. They've found a way to block HIV transmission from male to female, at least in monkeys, using a cream of the female genital cells.

Researchers tested three different doses of the cream and found monkeys given the highest dose had 100% HIV protection with lesser degrees of protection when given the lesser doses. This study at Case Western Reserve provides new hope that the discovery will lead to effective HIV protection in humans.
