A Phase I study that tested the safety and acceptability of VivaGel® (SPL7013 Gel) in HIV-negative women ages 18 to 24. The study, a collaboration with the NIH’s Adolescent Trials Network (ATN) for HIV/AIDS Interventions, was conducted at two U.S. sites and one in Puerto Rico. Results, reported in May 2010, found VivaGel generally well-tolerated but less acceptable to use than the two placebo gels studied.
