What is going on with the baboon study?
We haven't sent an update in a while because most of the baboons have simply been living happily in their large social groups, surrounded by females. All of the primates in the new study that got Vasalgel this summer have been in breeding areas for the last 2-3 months. The good news is that no pregnancies have occurred, despite lots of amorous activity from the males!

There has been more activity in our original pilot study that started in early 2014. Two males had been given Vasalgel in January and recently spent about four months with females with no pregnancies resulting. We conducted the first primate reversals a few weeks ago by flushing their vas deferens to dissolve and remove the Vasalgel. We think the procedures went well, and the males will go back into breeding after the first of the year to determine if they can impregnate a female. 

We are mainly in a "sit and wait" phase of the study for the next month or two, ensuring that Vasalgel is effective and waiting to see whether the animals with reversals can impregnate a female. Hopefully our patience will be rewarded!
Wishing you a safe and joyful New Year's holiday, and a healthy and productive new year,

the Vasalgel™ team
