Good News for Sea Cucumbers

(Reuters) – A drug that seems to drive female rats mad for sex may offer
the first real scientific aphrodisiac for women, U.S. and Canadian researchers
said on Monday.

The drug, Palatin Technologies Inc’s PT-141, is being developed for use
to fight impotence in men, but the researchers said tests showed it also
aroused female rats.

"Accordingly, PT-141 may be the first identified pharmacological agent
with the capability to treat female sexual desire disorders," they
wrote in their report, published in the Proceedings of the National Academy

This could be good news for rhinoceros and sea cucumbers….
