Abstract

The search for effective antifertility vaccines has been actively pursued for decades in clinical applications as contraceptives or in the treatment of hormone-dependent conditions. More recently, innovations have seen immunocontraception being employed successfully in veterinary and farming applications, as well as in population control of a number of different wildlife species. Although the basic principle behind these vaccines is the same, design considerations and criteria for commercialization are very different. This review will examine current advances in this field and evaluate the future scope of antifertility vaccines.
