Predictive value of sperm deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) fragmentation index in male infertility.

29-11-2017

Abstract:
BACKGROUND:
Recently, damage to the sperm DNA has been studied as it is associated with reduced fertilization rates, embryo quality, and pregnancy rates, also higher rates of spontaneous miscarriage…


Multi-centre assessment of nitroblue tetrazolium reactivity in human semen as a potential marker of oxidative stress

Abstract: This retrospective cohort study investigated whether reproductive outcome could be improved in couples presenting with a high level of sperm DNA fragmentation (SDF) by treating the ejaculate with the magnetic cell sorting (MACS) sperm selection procedure in combination with prior density gradient centrifugation (DGC)…


Magnetic cell sorting of semen containing spermatozoa with high DNA fragmentation in ICSI cycles decreases miscarriage rate.

Abstract: This retrospective cohort study investigated whether reproductive outcome could be improved in couples presenting with a high level of sperm DNA fragmentation (SDF) by treating the ejaculate with the magnetic cell sorting (MACS) sperm selection procedure in combination with prior density gradient centrifugation (DGC)…


The presence of human papillomavirus in semen does not affect the integrity of sperm DNA.

Abstract: It remains unknown whether human papillomaviruses (HPVs) in semen affect sperm DNA integrity. We investigated whether the presence of these viruses in semen was associated with an elevated sperm DNA fragmentation index…


Reproductive outcomes of testicular versus ejaculated sperm for intracytoplasmic sperm injection among men with high levels of DNA fragmentation in semen: systematic review and meta-analysis

Abstract:
Objective

To compare sperm DNA fragmentation (SDF) levels between testicular and ejaculated sperm and to evaluate outcomes of intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) with the use of testicular (Testi-ICSI) versus ejaculated (Ejac-ICSI) sperm in …


ICSI outcome in patients with high DNA fragmentation: Testicular versus ejaculated spermatozoa.

Abstract: Sperm DNA fragmentation (SDF) has emerged as an important biomarker in the assessment of male fertility potential with contradictory results regarding its effect on ICSI. The aim of this study was to evaluate intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) outcomes in male patients with high SDF using testicular versus ejaculated spermatozoa…


Silver nanoparticle induced toxicity to human sperm by increasing ROS(reactive oxygen species) production and DNA damage

Abstract: Silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) have been used in medical products and industrial coatings, due to their antimicrobial properties. Excessive use of AgNPs can have adverse effects on the human body, however, their toxicity characteristics to human sperm and the potential mechanisms are not entirely clear…


Sperm DNA fragmentation as a result of ultra endurance exercise training in male athletes.

Abstract: Intensive sports practice seems to exert negative effects on semen parameters; in order to assess these effects, the objective of this study was to assess semen, including DNA fragmentation, and hormone parameters in elite triathletes…
