Abstract

STIs in the mouth or rectum are more difficult to cure than infections of the genitals and there are no new drugs to resolve this issue. We must optimise the drugs we have possibly by increasing doses and changing regimens. We will develop innovative sampling methods to measure for the first time, the pharmacokinetics of 4 drugs commonly used to treat STIs in the mouth and rectum. These data are being called for globally and will be used to guide treatment decisions.
