They can be: The most severe form of lgv i've seen, though not common, is lgv proctitis: anorectal infection in gay or bisexual men. It's easy to treat once you make the diagnosis, but the diagnosis is often not made right away.

No need: We really don't need new treatments for lgv. It's a fairly uncommon infection that is easily treatable with doxycycline. Drainage of buboes or abscesses is sometimes required.
