xiv+232pp., summary, intro., illust. with charts and graphs, appendixes, glossary, acronyms. From the IoM's Committee on New Frontiers in Contraceptive Research Board on Health Sciences Policy. A wider range of contraceptive options is needed to address the changing needs of the populations of the world across the reproductive life cycle, but this unmet need has not been a major priority for the research community and pharmaceutical industry. This report identifies priority areas for research, highlights new technologies and approaches to biomedical research, including genomics and proteomics; it also identifies impediments to drug development that must be addressed.
