Drug company Starpharma says they hope to release the world's first herpes-killing gel within two years. Although other companies are working on a vaginal gel to prevent HIV, Starpharma thinks the herp-specific goo will be a better seller. [Business Week]
I think this is great. Herpes can be such a disaster for thsoe who contract it. I also know many people who contracted it from partners who didn't know or didn't reveal they had it.
However, the fact that we need this is sad. I strongly promote safe and protected sex.
