Medical researchers based in the United States has confirmed that a trial in which American teenagers used a vaginal ring to prevent the infection of HIV have been proved successful.
Now, a further study will be run with teenagers in Africa.
The girls used a flexible plastic ring, embedded with anti-retroviral drugs, which was changed every month over a six-month period.
Actually, the research is part of a drive to develop a device which women can use to protect themselves from HIV infection, so they don’t have to rely on men to wear condoms.
Reporting the development at a conference about HIV science in Paris, the researchers said they were encouraged that the girls used the ring and said they liked it.
I'm the buzz
