The Indian Council of Medical Research has just wrapped up the clinical trials for a new male birth control, that will be done by giving your penis direct syringe shots, thus an injection right into the male ginital organ.
However, the only requirement now is the permission from the Indian government, to allow the male fertility control product to go on the market.
However, they noted that it is a painful and invasive process because, it involves a polymer being delivered via injection into the semen-producing glad, vas deferens, which is located on the penis near the testicles. But it is actually an alternative to surgical vasectomy, which is also quite tedious.
“The product is ready, with only regulatory approvals pending with the Drugs Controller. The trials are over, including extended, phase 3 clinical trials for which 303 candidates were recruited with 97.3% success rate and no reported side-effects. The product can safely be called the world’s first male contraceptive,”
The drug controller general of India, VG Somani also had this to say:
“It’s the first in the world from India so we have to be extra careful about approval. We are looking at all aspects, especially the good manufacturing practice (GMP) certification that won’t raise any questions about its quality,”
Hearing this from the drug controller general of the country, is there still a doubt how quick the approval process will be? Your guess is as good as mine.
