The scientists reportedly used a laboratory model of the human vagina and discovered that certain bacterial communities alter the way HIV infects and replicates.

According to sources, the researchers grew human vaginal skin cells in a dish in a manner that created surfaces to support colonization by the complex good and bad communities of bacteria collected from women during routine gynecological exams. The bacterial communities have never before been successfully grown outside a human.
