We present the case for developing simple non-hormonal vaginal products that women can use when needed, ideally products that are multipurpose and offer both contraception and sexually transmitted disease protection. Gel-based vaginal products are particularly well-suited for this purpose. Gels are easy to use, highly acceptable to many women, and can be safely formulated to enhance natural vaginal defenses against infection. However, the development of a new chemical entity for this application faces significant technical and regulatory hurdles. These challenges and our solutions are described for polyphenylene carboxymet...
