A birth control vaccine will not become a reality in the near future despite the high hopes of the Indian government, predicts a leading researcher at the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) here. But another researcher says a vaccine for women could hold out hope. None of the vaccines proposed by scientists actually met the requirements for use as a contraceptive vaccine for human application and "one may conclude that immuno-contraception (birth control vaccine) has no place in fertility control," he said in a report in the journal Current Science.
