In 2009, the results of an anti-HIV microbicide containing the drug PRO 2000 were released.
Rather than dumping a product that worked in the lab and in non-human primates, but not in humans, they tried again. At a higher dose– Study 1 had the drug at 0.5%. So this study had a no-drug control, the 0.5% ‘treatment’ group (which they knew was not therapeutic), and a 2.0% treatment group.
I hope they do another trial next year at 8.0%. Surely that will work.
