Spermicidal Efficacy of a Vaginal Gel

Spermicidal Efficacy Of A Vaginal Gel

There is an urgent need to develop non-hormonal innovative preventive measures under the control of women that can prevent unintended pregnancy. Based on our experimental data, the use of a gel formulation containing SLS could represent a potent and safe topical vaginal spermicide. The impact of such a preventive tool on public health will be enormous. After successfully completing supportive Phase I/II safety trials, the next step is a prospective pilot clinical trial to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of our gel formulation as a spermicidal agent and for preventing unintended pregnancy in healthy women.
