Population-level effects of immunocontraception
in white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus).
Behavior of feral horses in response to culling and GnRH immunocontraception
The two main approaches are chemical contraception, such as Zeuterin or hormonal birth control, and immunocontraception
, which actually uses the body's own immune system against part of the reproductive system.
prevents pregnancy or oocyte fertilization by immunological mechanisms (1-3).
This led to the choice to seek to control deer through immunocontraception
, using the animal's own immune system to prevent it from fertilizing offspring.
of white-tailed deer with GnRH vaccine.
One approach that could potentially target CATSPER1 is immunocontraception
where antibodies are developed that bind to a targeted protein and block its function.
While many ideas regarding male contraception are being investigated, the researchers say that one approach that may potentially target CATSPER1 is immunocontraception
, where antibodies are developed that bind to a targeted protein and block its function.
Findings from the latest research on deer population control are out and surprise of surprises, immunocontraception
(birth control) still doesn't work.
