Abstract

There has not been a new reversible contraceptive for men since the development of the condom, centuries ago. Matzuk et al. describe a new molecular approach using administration of a small molecule to directly and reversibly inhibit spermatogenesis in mice by blocking the function of a testicular bromodomain without apparent adverse effect on the organism or offspring.
