Microbicide Trials Network

MTN-014

A Phase I study that examined drug absorption patterns in both rectal and vaginal tissue when a reduced glycerin formulation of tenofovir gel was applied either vaginally or rectally. The study enrolled 14 women at a U.S.-based clinical research site.  Results, reported in July 2015, demonstrated that when tenofovir gel was applied into the vagina, a low amount of active drug was distributed to the rectum and, similarly, when the gel was applied into the rectum, a low amount of active drug was distributed to the vagina.
