The decades-long ambition of creating a male contraceptive pill has today moved another step closer to reality.
For experts claim to have developed a tablet that’s 99 per cent effective at blocking pregnancies, putting it on par with the actual female version.
Tests on mice showed the non-hormonal drug, labelled YCT529, did not trigger any visible side effects.
And the rodents were able to father pups again four to six weeks after they stopped taking the contraceptive, according to the team.
University of Minnesota researchers plan human trials of the drug — which inhibits a protein to stop the formation of sperm — later this year.
