I have received three calls today on a topic that was discussed on Ophra
within the last few days.  It seems that there is a testosterone cream
that can be applied to the thighs to increase a persons libido or sex

I found some references in newspapers, but not a lot in the medical
literature.  I found references in MEDLINE on a transdermal patch of
testosterone, but the physician is looking for information on a cream
that is applied directly the skin.

I think it may be a product from Novavax Inc., which is currently in
trials with such a product, according to a newspaper article from last

Has anyone else had questions like this, or perhaps saw the Ophra show
and can shed some light on the subject.
