Genital ulcerative STD such as herpes genitalis, syphilis, and chancroid have been identified as important risk factors for the spread of human immunodeficiency virus infection. Efficient and safe therapeutic regimen are therefore essential to cure the individual and to prevent spread of STD in the community.
