First Male Contraceptive Ready Soon by Awesome05: 11:05am On Nov 20, 2019
The first ever male birth control injection that is administered into genitals is nearly ready after the injection successfully passed its clinical trial.

This novel birth control method, which lasts approximately 13 years, involves injecting a polymer which effectively blocks sperm from leaving the testicles.

The vaccine, followed by a dose of local anaesthesia, is designed to replace a traditional vasectomy.

In a statement credited to Indian Council of Medical Research, a government-funded biomedical research agency, the agency has successfully completed a clinical trial on an injectable male contraceptive, the Hindustan Times reported.

A senior scientist with ICMR, Dr. R.S Sharma, said: "The product is ready, with only regulatory approvals pending (from the government).

"The trials are over, including extended, Phase 3 clinical trials for which 303 candidates were recruited with a 97.3 per cent success rate and no reported side effects.

"The product can safely be called the world’s first male contraceptive.”
