HIV Antiviral Activity of Each of the Cervico-vaginal Samples (Samples Taken From the Vagina Using the Softcup) [ Time Frame: at 3 hours ]

The HIV antiviral activity is the ability of each sample taken from the vagina (cervico-vaginal (CV) sample) to inhibit HIV virus from infecting a specific cell culture.

The inhibition of HIV in the presence of the CV sample is compared to the inhibition of HIV in the cell culture with no CV sample added. This allows an assessment of the affect that the CV sample has.
