Host: Lee Freedman, MD
Guest: Michael Hildebrand, PhD
Researchers have discovered a CATSPER gene mutation that may lead to development of a male infertility treatment, as well as a male contraceptive. Are we really another step closer to developing a male contraceptive, and when might an oral contraceptive be available for men? Join host Dr. Lee Freedman as he talks with Dr. Michael Hildebrand, fellow in the department of otolaryngology at the Carver College of Medicine, University of Iowa, about this exciting new genetic discovery, and how it might lead to the development of a male contraceptive.
