Male contraception breakthroughs to be presented, Seattle Sept. 27-28
Date:9/21/2007

Seattle will be the place to be on September 27 and 28, when male contraception researchers from the U.S. and overseas gather to present their news. The second Future of Male Contraception conference sponsored by the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, CONRAD, the World Health Organization, and the University of Washington will be at Seattles Edgewater Hotel overlooking the Puget Sound. Registration is free of charge.

Here is a sample of the news to be announced at the conference:

  • a new compound that can be taken orally (Columbia University, Retinoic acid alpha receptor inhibitor)

  • 3-month and 6-month results in men for the Intra Vas Device, a vasectomy alternative (Shepherd Medical Company)

  • Gamendazole: how it works in animals, and finding the right dose (University of Kansas and University of Minnesota)

  • clinical proof-of-concept studies on testosterone alternatives for use in a "male pill" (GTx, Inc., SARMs)

  • evidence of public demand, including survey results (International Male Contraception Coalition)

Many other teams will present late-breaking news during the poster session, 7-9 pm September 27th.
