 Researchers Developing Potential Viagra Rival
Researchers at the Medical Research Council's Human Reproductive Sciences unit in Edinburgh are close to developing a potential rival for Viagra. This drug promises to boost the sex drive in both men and women

The drug triggers the release of chemical Type 2 gonadtropin through a hormone.

"This drug would arouse and produce the desire for sex at the same time, in men and women," Professor Robert Miller told the Daily Mail. "It is very exciting that we have made so much progress, as the stimulation of libido would mean a great deal to a huge number of people."

Animal tests have proved to be successful and researchers are now looking to test the same on humans.
