Male Contraceptive Pill Found 99% Effective in Mice
A team of scientists said Wednesday they had developed a male oral contraceptive that was 99 percent effective in mice
and didn't cause observable side effects, with the drug expected to enter human trials by the end of this year.
The findings will be presented at the American Chemical Society's spring meeting, and mark a key step towards expanding birth control options -- as well as responsibilities -- for men.
Ever since the female birth control pill was first approved in the 1960s, researchers have been interested in a male equivalent,..
...Md Abdullah Al Noman, a graduate student at the University of Minnesota who will present the work, told AFP.
"Multiple studies showed that men are interested in sharing the responsibility of birth control with their partners," he said.
