London: Scientists have created a type of vaginal bacteria to combat the spread of HIV among women. Dean Hamer of the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland, and colleagues replicated the bacteria produced naturally by the body to produce the anti-HIV protein cyanovirin-N. They applied a gel containing the bacteria to the vaginas of rhesus macaques before infecting them by the same route with a hybrid of SIV and HIV.
