Spray-on birth control

An Australian-based company called Acrux has partnered with New York-based Population Council, Inc. to create the world's first spray-on contraceptive.

Acrux manufactures a drug delivery device called "MDTS", which sprays a dose of medication to the forearm, which gets absorbed into blood system. Population Council makes contraceptives, including one called Nestorone.

The two companies will jointly market the Nestorone MDTS combo at reduced prices to public sector organisations providing human reproductive health products to disadvantaged people.
