    An assessment of the relationship between condom labels and HIV-related beliefs and intentions.

    Bleakley A; Fishbein M; Holtgrave D

    AIDS and Behavior. 2008 May; 12(3):452-458.

    The aim of this article is to examine the impact of the FDA's proposed condom package labeling on HIV-related beliefs about condom effectiveness, on intentions to recommend condoms for friends to use, and intentions to use condoms. Using a nationally representative survey we randomized 1,194 adults ages 18-65 years into one of three condom label conditions: the current label on condom packaging; a label with the proposed FDA language; and a label with CDC language on condom effectiveness. In short, there are no significant differences between the proposed FDA label and the current label on HIV-related beliefs and intentions. In contrast, from an HIV prevention perspective, the CDC condom language appears to offer a better alternative to the current condom label for unmarried populations. (author's)

    Natural membrane condoms still no barrier to STDs [news]

    The Food and Drug Administration recently reviewed its warning that natural membrane condoms do not provide a sufficient barrier to prevent the transmission of all sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) (Medical Devices Bulletin, June 1989). The FDA has asked manufacturers of both the natural membrane and latex condoms to modify their package labeling so that it clearly states the intended use: to prevent pregnancy or/and to prevent STD transmission. Labels will have to specify which STD may be prevented by the use of the product. Firms can wait until the next package printing to revise their labeling, as long as that printing takes place within the next year. If manufacturers believe that their natural membrane condoms provide protection against certain STDs, they must submit premarketing data to the FDA to support their claims. (full text)
