This basically says tenofovir in a gel form is active against hhv2. This would probably then be effective for other herpes infections or orally for systemic herpes infections from hhv1/2 to ebv/cmv/hhv6.

So its possible tenofovir not only treats retrovirus but other herpes coinfections. It is already used to treat hepatitis.

So interesting. If i or anyone else finds interesting research similar to this please post.

Is this for topical application?

In the study its a gel for application but it shows tenofovir is active against herpes viruses. So taking it in pill form should help especially if a systemic type of infection, but i havent seen any studies beyong the gel so far.
