Future Clinical Applications

At the present, the number of studies available on human pheromones and their role in human reproduction is very limited. Active research is being conducted on this fascinating field. With our improved understanding of the role of pheromones and its role in reproduction, gender specific pheromones isolated from men and women could be used as fertility agents for couples who wish to conceive. It might even be manipulated to work as a contraceptive. Some researchers suggest that pheromones could also be used in mood regulation, and help alleviate stress and depression.

The prostate gland in the male is a highly hormone dependent gland. Sexual activity plays a crucial role in determining the prostate cancer risk. Another hypothesis is that specific human pheromone products can be designed to modulate sexual activity, more specifically prostate gland activity in such way that it is associated with reduced risk of developing prostate caner.
