Technique could prevent pregnancy in pets, human use is also envisioned Researchers at Weill Cornell Medical College have shown that it is possible to immunize mammals to control fertility. They say their technique could possibly be used on other mammals -- including humans -- because fertility hormones and their receptors are species-non-specific and are similar in both females and males. For pets, the technique could be an alternative to castration and adverse effects of hormone...

Researchers from the National Institutes of Health and other institutions have identified in mice two proteins essential for ovulation to take place.The finding has implications for treating infertility resulting from a failure of ovulation to occur as well as for developing new means to prevent pregnancy by preventing the release of the egg.The proteins, called ERK1 and ERK2, appear to bring about the maturation and release of the egg.The study, appearing in the May 15 issue of Science, was...

Two enzymes called extracellular signal-regulated kinases (ERK1 and ERK2) are critical factors in a pathway that induces ovulation, maturation of the mammalian egg (oocyte) and other activities key to ovarian function and female fertility, said a group of researchers at Baylor College of Medicine (BCM) in a report that appears today in the journal Science."This finding could provide clues to developing new contraceptives and understanding infertility in some women with irregular menstrual...

Researchers in Germany announced Monday the discovery of a new technique that may help cancer patients preserve their fertility prior to starting treatments such as chemotherapy, which can sometimes result in infertility. Many women who are newly-diagnosed with cancer freeze some of their eggs, a process that can take up to six weeks, in an effort to preserve their post-treatment fertility. But if the diagnosis comes at the beginning of their menstrual cycle, many are not able to delay...
