Groups developing a gel to protect women from HIV/AIDS say they are moving ahead to develop the product that was hailed as ‘groundbreaking’ after a study on its effectiveness was released in July.

The developers, who met have already met with the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA), say the FDA informed them it would only require a limited amount of new information about the gel's safety and efficacy before considering licensing the product.

The gel, containing Gilead Sciences AIDS drug tenofovir, reduced HIV infections in women by 39 percent over two and a half years in a trial in South Africa that was called ‘groundbreaking’ by the World Health Organisation.
