This paper is one of the components of our research on how to optimize polymeric anti-HIV gels, microbicides . Microbicides are delivered to the vaginal epithelium to protect it from HIV and other sexually transmitted infections. Microbicides may provide a physical barrier amplifying the normal vaginal defenses, as well as destroy the pathogens chemically or inhibit viral infection. Microbicides are a promising solution to provide a low-cost, female-controlled method for protection against HIV and other sexually transmitted pathogens.
