Pheromones are used

Pheromones are used in new drug delivery systems. “I foresee dozens, if not hundreds, of applications for this technology. It could be used to control different aspects of human behavior, the physiology of the human body, and mood and attitude. What is most amazing of all is the notion of controlling all that just by inserting a few mol- ecules into the nasal cavity. I would say it is a revolutionary discovery.” Learn about human pheromones at
When asked how pheromone technology and research might progress, Louis Monti-Bloch is enthusiastic. For example, he thinks vomeropherins could one day be used to treat male sex offenders, who have been said to possess abnormal levels of testosterone in their blood. A vomeropherin designed to alter testosterone levels would direct a message to the hypothalamus to alter the production of gonadal hormones. This in turn would control production of testosterone in the testes and could be used as an effective treatment in the future.
Pheromonally Yours
In mammals, some pheromones have been shown to alter hormone levels and affect the animal’s fertility or sexual behavior. Because the human VNO is thought to be linked by neural j connections to the hypothalamus, vomeropherins might be administered to create hormonal changes in humans as well, as we have just described.
The hypothalamus, working in conjunction with the pituitary gland, secretes “releasing factors” that control the release of 3 hormones in the body, including luteinizing hormone releasing hormone (LHRH), a releasing factor secreted by the hypothalamus, and follicular-stimulating hormone (FSH), a hormone secreted by the pituitary gland, both of which are necessary components of the human reproductive system. LHRH is significant because its target is the pituitary gland, which is linked to the hypothalamus by a special blood circuit in the brain. When the pituitary is stimulated by LHRH, it releases luteinizing hormone into the bloodstream. Luteinizing hormone travels to the testes in men and to the ovaries in women, which when stimulated by the hormone produce sex hormones (testosterone in men and estrogen in women).

The Future of Pheromones
Pherin scientists have found that certain vomeropherins can alter blood levels of LH and FSH. Of particular interest to Pherin, however, is that a certain vomeropherin can decrease testos-terone levels in the bloodstream of males. The ability to reduce or boost levels of circulating testosterone and other hormones just by puffing a vomeropherin into the nose is a major development in the world of medicine. Clinically, this discovery could mean dramaticladvances in the treatment of cancers, some of which, including cancer of the prostate gland, feed on testosterone and need the hormone in order to grow. In women, estrogen has been implicated in breast cancer. Estrogen is also controlled by the hypothalamus-pituitary LH link. Learn about pheromones for men at
In addition, vomeropherins could open doors in the arena of hormone replacement therapy for men and women. Rather than administer replacement hormones through pills, skin patches, or injections, Pherin’s pheromone technology could normalize pheromone levels with vomeropherins, thereby minimizing the side effects associated with conventional drug delivery systems.
