The Natesto Spermatogenesis Study is investigating the impact of Natesto, the only FDA approved, nasally-administered testosterone treatment, on sperm parameters. This Phase IV, single-site, prospective study is evaluating hypogonadal men, ages 18 to 55, completing a six-month treatment period with Natesto to restore clinically low serum testosterone levels with the goal of maintaining sperm concentration, motility, and total motile sperm count.
Interim results presented to date demonstrate that almost all subjects completing the six-month treatment period not only had serum testosterone levels return to the normal range, but all measures of semen parameters including sperm concentration, sperm motility, and total motile sperm count (TMSC) remained unchanged through three months and six months of therapy.
No additional information regarding the results from the Natesto Spermatogenesis Study will be available until the data are released on October 16, 2019.
