The lead investigator was Anita Nelson, MD. The study, involving 805 monogamous, heterosexual couples ages 18-45, found an insignificant difference in pregnancy prevention between the Durex Avanti (thin version) polyurethane condom and the Ramses Sensitol latex condom. Both condoms are manufactured and marketed by London International Group. The company expects the study to be published in a peer-reviewed journal in 1997.
