A condom containing a specialized solution that kills the organisms responsible for the development of sexually transmitted diseases, like herpes, human papilloma virus and HIV on contact, will be produced in Australia.
In a media statement Peter Carroll, president of Ansell, said, “Consumers can expect to see the ‘ground-breaking new sexual health’ product on the shelves soon.”
Ansell is the Australian company that will sell the condom.
The condom will contain a specially developed solution of 0.5% concentrated solution of astrodrimer called VivaGel. The solution will also act as the condom’s lubricant.
VivaGel is said to bind the bacteria causing various STD’s and encouragingly is also effective against the HIV virus. Bind of the bacteria prevents those cells from interacting with normal body cells thereby illuminating the risk of transmission by as much as 99.9%
The VivaGel condoms are expected to be launched within the next few months.
