Congress adds $12 mil. to population research grants pot; for 1976; contraceptive development, behavioural sciences contract work set



Drug Research Reports 18(40): 10-12



The Center for Population Research at the National Institute of Health has been granted a $12 million increase for 1976 over its congressional appropriation for 1975. The money is to go for increased research grants, not for contracts. In the field of contraceptive development, the following will be financed: 1) ovulation prediction; 2) work on male fertility control; 3) non-chemical and non-mechanical systems of contraception; 4) problems of drug delivery; 5) physical approaches to ovulation detection; 6) additional clinical trials with Et hinyl estradiol and conjugated estrogens; 7) non-surgical female occlusion; 8) the mechanism of post-coital contraception; and 9) synthesis of antifertility compounds. No immunological approach to fertility control will be tried. Behavioral studies will be conducted in the following areas: 1) the cost of raising children; 2) the determinants of fertility during 1940-1975; 3) women's roles and fertility; 4) teen-age fertility; and 5) professional manpower needs in the field of population.
