AIDS specialists are hearing a call to expand help for women far beyond a global focus on pregnancy.
AIDS specialists heard fresh appeals Wednesday to expand assistance for women far beyond a global focus on pregnancy.
Thousands of women in Africa can volunteer for major new research to see if inserting a vaginal ring coated with an anti-AIDS drug could protect them from HIV infection, U.S. scientists announced Tuesday.
Vaginal-based protection should cause fewer side effects than pills, and early-stage studies of the ring found no problems, said Zeda Rosenberg, chief executive of the International Partnership for Microbicides.
Earlier-stage research is under way to develop a variety of gels, vaginal films and vaginal rings containing that and other drugs, Rosenberg said.
