男用避孕药高效安全前景好

2006-05-08 14:36王高山,CRI

Effect of Male Pill Could be Reversed in Months

美国研究人员日前表示,男用激素类的避孕药物将很快得到普及,因为它不仅能起到非常有效的避孕作用,同时在停止用药后几个月,男性的生育能力将会重新恢复。

Men given a hormone-based contraceptive, which could be available in the near future, can regain their fertility about four months after stopping the treatment, researchers said on Friday.

据路透社4月28日报道,世界众多制药公司一直致力于研发一种能够抑制精子生成的男性激素类避孕药片或注射针剂,希望这能给那些实施计划生育的家庭更大的选择空间。

Drug companies have been working on a male pill or injection to inhibit sperm production and give couples a greater choice of family planning methods.

科学家也针对这种新的避孕措施进行了分析研究,发现它不仅高度有效,而且当男性停止服药数月后,其生育能力也可重新恢复。

Scientists who analyzed studies involving men who had been given the contraceptives in trials found the treatments were highly effective but reversible.

美国洛杉矶生物医学研究所的皮特·刘在《柳叶刀》上发表的分析报告中说:“激素类男性避孕措施将很快得以广泛应用。”此后,男性有望在家庭避孕计划中和女性更加公平地承担责任。

"Hormonal male contraceptive methods could soon become widely available," said Peter Liu from the Los Angeles Biomedical Research Institute at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center.

"These findings thereby increase the promise of new contraceptive drugs allowing men to share more fairly the satisfaction and burden of family planning," he added in the report published in The Lancet medical journal.

目前,这种男性避孕措施正在中国及欧洲各国进行大规模地试验。皮特·刘和其研究小组对1990年至2005年公布的30项相关试验中1500名男性参与者的数据资料进行了深入分析。这些男士接受此种避孕措施后,其精子数量每个月都被记录下来,直到停药后,其精子水平恢复到每毫升2000万个(该精子水平被认为可生育)。研究人员还说,诸如年龄、精子原始数量、用药时间以及宗族等多种因素都可能会影响其恢复水平。

Large-scale trials of male hormone-based contraceptives are being conducted in China and Europe, according to the scientists.

Liu and his team analyzed data on 1,500 men who had taken part in 30 trials which had been published between 1990-2005. Their sperm production had been monitored each month until their sperm count hit 20 million per mL (milliliter), which is considered fertile.

The researchers said various factors, including age, original sperm count, duration of treatment and ethnic origin, could influence the recovery rate.
