Future Pill for Premature Ejaculation

17.02.2004


A new tablet could hold the key for men who suffer premature ejaculation, reports Marina Murphy in Chemistry & Industry Magazine. Trials by a US company have shown the pill, compound LI 301, to have an effect on everyone tested. Trials suggest the drug starts working within two hours, so it could be taken on an as-needed basis.



Currently, there are no approved treatments for premature ejaculation. There is no definite date set for the release of LI 301 although some estimates suggest it could be available as soon as 2007. Other compounds being investigated for premature ejaculation are producing mixed results, but the new pill works in a different and unique way. It is thought that its success in trials is due to an analgesic effect that causes a dulling of sensation and a reduction in feeling. But, at the right dose, this does not affect orgasm and normal sexual function is retained.


‘People do not like the interference factor of creams and devices and are moving toward being able to take a pill,’ says Chris Every, CEO of Enhance Biotech, New York, the company developing the drug.



‘Anything that improves the sex lives of men and women has to be a good thing,’ says Jim Pollard, editor of Male Health, ‘But,’ he says, ‘this has to be balanced with the over-medication of the area. The secret to good sex is really communication between the two people involved.’

Im Focus: In best circles: First integrated circuit from self-assembled polymer

For the first time, a team of researchers at the Max-Planck Institute (MPI) for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, has succeeded in making an integrated circuit (IC) from just a monolayer of a semiconducting polymer via a bottom-up, self-assembly approach.

In the self-assembly process, the semiconducting polymer arranges itself into an ordered monolayer in a transistor. The transistors are binary switches used...

Im Focus: Hybrid optics bring color imaging using ultrathin metalenses into focus

For photographers and scientists, lenses are lifesavers. They reflect and refract light, making possible the imaging systems that drive discovery through the microscope and preserve history through cameras.

But today's glass-based lenses are bulky and resist miniaturization. Next-generation technologies, such as ultrathin cameras or tiny microscopes, require...

Im Focus: Stem cell divisions in the adult brain seen for the first time

Scientists from the University of Zurich have succeeded for the first time in tracking individual stem cells and their neuronal progeny over months within the intact adult brain. This study sheds light on how new neurons are produced throughout life.

The generation of new nerve cells was once thought to taper off at the end of embryonic development. However, recent research has shown that the adult brain...

Im Focus: Interference as a new method for cooling quantum devices

Theoretical physicists propose to use negative interference to control heat flow in quantum devices. Study published in Physical Review Letters

Quantum computer parts are sensitive and need to be cooled to very low temperatures. Their tiny size makes them particularly susceptible to a temperature...
