FDA fast-tracks anti-HIV and herpes gel

Abstract:
Australian pharmaceutical company StarPharma announced Tuesday that the Food and Drug Administration has granted fast-track status to VivaGel, an investigational microbicidal gel that women would apply vaginally in the hours before intercourse to prevent transmission of HIV and genital herpes.

(ED.'s note: "A vaginal gel that incorporates nanotechnology" - someday, we hope, writers will learn that "nanotechnology" is not a thing; in the context of this article, it is simply materials science. A more accurate sentence would be "A vaginal gel that incorporates nanoscale materials, in specific, dendrimers ...")
