New male birth control pill passes human safety tests in sma
US researchers testing a new male birth control pill have announced that it has passed tests of safety and tolerability in a small group of healthy men.

The new pill is being tested by researchers at University of Washington School of Medicine and Los Angeles Biomed Research Institute (LA BioMed), who recruited 40 healthy young men for the phase 1 trial.

Ten of the participants were assigned to randomly receive a placebo pill, while the other men received the new birth control pill, called 11-beta-methyl-19-nortestosterone dodecylcarbonate, or 11-beta-MNTDC.

The men received the pill in one of two doses; with 14 receiving 200 mg, and 16 receiving the 400 mg dose. All participants took their assigned pill or placebo once daily with food for 28 days.

The findings, which were presented on Sunday, March 24 at ENDO 2019, the Endocrine Society's annual meeting in New Orleans, showed that when used daily for a month, the experimental pill caused a large drop in the levels of two hormones required for sperm production, compared to the placebo.

Will the pill not impair the overall physiology of the individual since it is altering the very necessary hormone of manliness?
