Male contraceptive.- A group of scientists from the
University of California in Los Angeles in collaboration with the LA
Biomed Research Institute, both scientific institutions in the United States, has developed a new male contraceptive for external use.
The new treatment, named Nestorona, is able to reduce the production of sperm almost in its totality.
The new medicine is a gel that could be applied directly into the skin and which combines two hormones, testosterone and synthetic progestin.
The new product has been presented in the course of the last annual congress of the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists and Nutrition recently celebrated in Houston, the United States after being tested in 99 men showing its effectiveness when reducing up to 89% the production of sperm.
