Can viruses stop sexually transmitted infections?

Some problems with phage treatment for STIs are that it can not go after bacterial STIs, there are not any phages that can be used to make a phage combination, and the focus is on model bacteria instead of STI-causing bacteria. Phage engineering may be an option if researchers cannot identify naturally occurring phages that infect STI-causing bacteria. Phage-targeting phages, such as prophages, can be artificially modified to destroy their hosts.
