Men's semen appears to give the AIDS virus an extra boost, researchers from the Gladstone Institutes reported Wednesday in a finding they say may explain why it’s so hard to develop creams or gels to prevent infection.
Semen boosts the infectiousness of the AIDS virus and renders ineffective many promising gels aimed at blocking HIV, according to UCSF/Gladstone Institutes researchers. However, they believe new drugs could undercut semen's HIV-enhancing effect and provide a new way to obstruct the virus.
Semen appears to interfere with microbicide gels to prevent HIV, possibly explaining why they work in the lab but not in real-life situations, say scientists from the Gladstone Institutes
Dr. Robert Grant writes for the Huffington Post about use PrEP to finally end HIV transmission in San Francisco
