IPM Advances Three-month HIV Prevention and Contraception Ring to Clinical Trial

The three-month vaginal ring is designed to slowly — and simultaneously — release the antiretroviral drug dapivirine to prevent HIV and the contraceptive hormone levonorgestrel. The primary goal of the study, known as MTN-030/IPM 041, is to assess the ring’s safety and pharmacokinetics (how the body processes the two drugs). Results of the trial, including the product’s acceptability to women and their willingness to use it in the future, will inform next steps for the ring’s formulation and future trial designs.

A dapivirine-only ring that women use a month at a time was safe and helped prevent HIV in two large trials. The new ring adds levonorgestrel and could be used for three months.
