In this month's , Millard et al. report the results of an innovative study comparing surgical circumcision to that using a Unicirc device plus tissue adhesive. This is a follow-up to their earlier study using a similar non-disposable device (Gomco). This study is timely because South Africa (SA) is not on target to meet its planned objective of circumcising 80% of men between the ages of 15 and 49 or 4.3 million by 2015 and points the way toward a faster, easier method that may aid in voluntary medical male circumcision (VMMC) scale-up in areas of Africa with a high prevalence of HIV infection.
