Readers interested in sexual chemistry will have spotted the recent item on bremelanotide (Sex Gets Up Women’s Noses, April 24, 2006), which is soon to enter Phase III clinical trials for female sexual dysfunction (see also PLoS Medicine on the subject of disease mongering).
Anyway, recent sciencebase visitors have been trying to locate the material data safety sheet (MSDS) for this compound (judging from the recent spate of searches on the site for that term). Anyway, ChemSpy.com has excellent access to several MSDS sources here. If it’s listed anywhere you should be able to find the bremelanotide MSDS there.
A blogger on another site discussing my short bremelanotide article, suggested that the fact this drug is odourless and colourless represented a serious risk in terms of men spiking a woman’s drink, but I wonder…this drug doesn’t knock you out or give you amnesia it just makes you horny, so if Mr B. Nomates can’t score under normal circumstances when any number of potential mates may be horny or not, it won’t seriously boost his chances will it?
