Will An Antiviral Vaginal Gel Help Prevent Herpes? Maybe. Maybe Not.

Describes the use of a different technique - one that failed in preventing the spread of HIV - a topical (vaginal) gel containing the antiviral drug tenofovir. According to the paper, when used regularly by HSV-2-negative women, tenofovir gel reportedly reduced their rate of HSV-2 infection by 40%. Even though 40% is far from the cure that herpes sufferers have been hoping for, it's better than nothing, right?

Maybe not. That 40% may not be accurate because of some questions about and limitations of the trial and the science behind it. Here are some of them. 

1. WHY ARE THEY USING AN AIDS DRUG FOR HERPES?

Pritelivir inhibits the replication of both viruses, albeit by a different mechanism. (This is rather unusual). In fact, in cultured cells, pritelivir is more potent than acyclovir in inhibiting the replication of HSV-2 (1,2)

2. WHAT ARE THE CLAIMS?

Of the 566 HSV-2-negative women in the VOICE trial,  the authors concluded  that the use of 1% gel tenofovir gel was "associated with" a 40% reduction of HSV-2 acquisition.
