A viable alternative to men (not only condoms) is a step towards becoming a reality, this week the National Institute of Health (NIH) announced a clinical trial plan.
Judgment The Population Counsel and the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute will examine the effectiveness of the progestin room developed by the National Institute of Health and Human Development.
"Many women can not use hormonal contraceptives and mask the method of contraceptive vasectomy and condoms," said Diana Blithe, director of the development control program for the Children's Health and the National Human Development Institute, in a statement. "A safe, highly effective and reversible method of contraception for the sick to meet public health needs."
The room lumps to the back of the human body and on the shoulders, and effectively the sperm remains with the combination of two different hormones. In a person's bloodstream, hormones represent a testosterone.
The expression about the room is as follows:
"Progestin blocks the natural testosterone production by reducing the level of sperm that is less or less. The testosterone substitute has other functions that are suitable for sexual desire and blood hormone levels."
Blithe asked Bloomberg: "you are interrupting [la testosterona] In the source, but you will substitute everything else with the normal levels of maintenance at all. "
Researchers intend to enroll 420 pairs. Men will give their rooms and control their sperm and also have side effects. After 4 and 16 weeks of age, if spermatozoa have diminished, the effectiveness of the gel will prove to prevent pregnancy.
"The potential of this new gel is horrible," said Dr. William Bremner at the University of Washington School of Medicine, and helps test new NBC News methodologies. "There is no perceptive perception of men who are not interested in controlling their fertility or that they are not afraid. We know that this is not the case."
