I'd say give it a few weeks. I don't think it's officially published until Aug 1st. It's in the August issue of the Journal of infectious diseases. But I'll bet everyone that it doesn't get the same play that positive results get.

This backs up the BMA's rejection of the original African studies. It also upholds the NHS's refusal to perform non-therapeutic circumcision.
