Significant Infertility Treatment Results In Small Test

RedTracker| Research findings show that twice weekly injections of the hormone kisspeptin may restore fertility in some women. The study was a small sample of 10 women in England that did have a control group receiving a placebo treatment.

This is the first long term clinical study to examine the effectiveness of kisspeptin treatment. Twice-weekly injections of kisspeptin, administered over a two month period, can successfully stimulate the release of sex hormones in women with infertility due to hypothalamic amenorrhoea and this treatment does not cause any side-effects. These findings now need to be confirmed in large-scale randomised trials, before any treatments can be brought into clinical practice. via Science Daily
