There are few male contraceptive methods, and research is required to broaden the scope of available male antifertility methods. Two approaches toward hormonal contraception are currently being investigated. The first relies on elimination of testosterone while the second is based upon immunizations against FSH. However, most anti-whole FSH antisera(More)
The effects were studied of follicle stimulating hormone (FSH)-induced production of gonadotrophin surge-inhibiting factor (GnSIF) on three phases of the pituitary responsiveness to gonadotrophin releasing hormone (GnRH): the unprimed, primed and desensitized phases. Rats were injected with FSH on two occasions during the oestrous cycle. Spontaneous(More)
There are currently two major approaches to hormonal male contraception. One relies on testosterone (analogs) either alone or in combination with gonadotropin releasing hormone (GnRH) (analogs or immunizations), the other on immunizations against follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH). Theoretically, the latter method will suppress spermatogenesis whilst not(More)
