Conventional sperm processing uses centrifugation has a negative effect on sperm parameters and DNA integrity. We designed and fabricated a novel microfluid device based on chemotaxis and thermotaxis, and compared it with the swim-up method. Twenty normal samples with high DNA fragmentation were included. Each sample was divided into four groups: Group 1, control, Group 2: sperm selection by thermotaxis, Group 3: sperm selection by chemotaxis, and Group 4: sperm selection with thermotaxis and chemotaxis. We used cumulus cells in a microfluid device to create chemotaxis, and, two warm stages to form a temperature gradient for thermotaxis...

To compare the clinical efficacy of tamoxifen and Chinese patented medicine (Pingxiao capsules) in patients with gynecomastia and discuss the safety of the two treatments. We retrospectively analysed the clinical data of 388 male patients with gynecomastia who were treated in the Outpatient Clinic of our hospital between January 2010 and December 2020. There were 103 patients in the tamoxifen (TAM) group and 103 patients in the Chinese patented medicine group. There were 182 patients in the observation group (non-medication group; age range, 11-75 years; average age, 33...

Congenital hypogonadotropic hypogonadism (CHH) is a rare disease caused by deficiency or action of gonadotropin-releasing hormone. While generally considered a long-life condition, CHH can be reversible in about 5%-20% of cases, but mechanisms of reversibility are unknown. We report the case of a male with CHH who began treatment with low dose (20 mg/day) transdermal testosterone to induce pubertal development at age 17. Following the start of treatment, he experienced testicular growth and his serum testosterone concentrations increased beyond the expectations in relation to the dose...

Herein, we introduced a novel individual sperm freezing device named SpermCD, which consists of a right angular cryopiece (RA-Cryopiece, or "C") and a grooved petri dish ("D"). SpermCD allows embryologists to transfer sperm and perform ICSI on the same focal plane. Thirty-five patients underwent single sperm cryopreservation using SpermCD, including four patients with non-obstructive azoospermia (NOA), 14 patients with virtual azoospermia and 17 patients with cryptozoospermia. One hundred and twenty-five cryopreserved spermatozoa from nine patients were thawed on the day of the oocyte retrieval and 121 spermatozoa were found, with a sperm recovery rate of 97...

Radiation can lead to various damages in the process of spermatogenesis that lead to a decrease in the number of sperm, an increase in spermatogenesis disorders, and defective sperm function. Radioprotectors are considered a good approach to reducing the damage caused by radiation. The goal of this work was to study how X-ray radiation affects testicular tissue and the process of spermatogenesis, as well as the radioprotective effects of selenium nanoparticles (SeNPs) and Lactobacillus casei (L. casei) as probiotic compounds, given alone or together...

The study aimed to familiarise primary care physicians and specialists with the minimum hormonal diagnostic tests necessary to assay isolated micropenis in healthy children without any phenotypic abnormality. Children aged 6-15 years (mean 11.6 ± 1.68) were assessed from May 2010 to September 2021 (N = 247). Multiple regression analysis showed correlations between stretched penile length (SPL) and hormonal assays as follows: follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH): r = 0...

Silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) have been used widely in medical applications and various industries. Humans could be exposed to the risk of AgNPs toxicity through different routes. The current study aimed to investigate the role of Spirulina platensis (SP) against the side effects of AgNPs on mice testis. Adult male NMRI mice were divided into four groups: control group, SP group (300 mg/kg bwt), AgNPs (20 nm) group (500 mg/kg bwt), Co-treated group (SP + AgNPs)...

Male reproductive problems may derive from many reasons including the environmental toxicants which may either intaken by occupational exposure, nutrition or bad air quality. The increased exposure to these substances due to rapid industrial development and technology has raised the questions: Is there a relationship between sperm parameters and these substances, and if so, in what extent? Results of studies on the subject reported conflicting results, many of which were not investigated in the seminal plasma...

Mean platelet volume (MPV) has been related to erectile dysfunction (ED). However, its value in predicting therapeutic response to phosphodiesterase-5 inhibitors is not evaluated. This study aimed to investigate the value of MPV as a marker for the prediction of the response of the tadalafil treatment of ED. A retrospective analysis of patients who were admitted to the andrology outpatient clinic between 2020-2022 were performed. The inclusion criteria were, ≥40 years old male, International Index of Erectile Function-Erectile Function domain score < 26, not received any ED treatment before, have a stable heterosexual relationship, and prescribed 5 mg daily tadalafil for primary treatment of ED...

Sperm DNA integrity could be considered a biological marker of sperm quality and may affect fertilization, embryonic development, and pregnancy outcome. The study aimed to investigate the connection between semen characteristics and sperm DNA damage in infertile patients. Standard semen analysis of 536 samples was carried out following the World Health Organization (WHO) 5th edition recommendations. Sperm DNA damage was assessed by the terminal deoxynucleotidyl transferase-mediated dUTP nick-end labeling (TUNEL) assay, after preparation by direct swim-up...

Gene expression in meiotic cells in the testis is characterized by intense transcriptional activity and alternative splicing. These processes are mainly controlled by RNA-binding proteins expressed strongly in germ cells. Functional impairments in any of these proteins' functions can lead to defects in meiosis and thus severe male infertility. Here, we have identified a homozygous frameshift mutation (NM_014469.4:c.301dup; p.Ser101LysfsTer29) in the RNA-binding motif protein, X-linked like 2 (RBMXL2) gene in a man with an azoospermia due to meiotic arrest...

This study aimed to assess outcomes of microdissection testicular sperm extraction (MD-TESE) and identify predictors for sperm retrieval (SR) in patients with non-mosaic Klinefelter syndrome (NM-KFS). We retrospectively evaluated 37 patients with NM-KFS who underwent MD-TESE. Data of age at operation, body mass index (BMI), testicular volume, serum luteinizing hormone (LH), follicle stimulating hormone (FSH), preoperative and postoperative testosterone levels with reduction ratio between the two values, and FSH/preoperative testosterone ratio were analysed...

Microfluidics and microfilter devices have been developed to mimic the characteristics of the female reproductive tract, minimizing the risk of sperm damage. This study aimed to compare the use of a microfilter device versus conventional methods for sperm selection used in in vitro fertilization (IVF). For selecting spermatozoa, the pooled samples were processed in a microfilter device, swim-up and mini-Percoll gradient. Kinematic and morphometric parameters, vitality and DNA damage were analysed before and after sperm selection...

Lufenuron is a benzoylurea pesticide that causes significant histological and histochemical damage in mammals. Avocado is a common food in the human diet that contains antioxidant and antitumor properties. In male rats, avocado oil's protection against lufenuron-induced reproductive deterioration, oxidative stress, and DNA damages was investigated. Twenty-eight mature male rats were selected and distributed into four groups: Group 1, control group were administered distilled water orally; Group 2 received 4 ml/kg avocado; Group 3 was given lufenuron (1...

The aim of this study was to assess the utility of shear wave elastography in the follow-up of testicular detorsion, evaluate long-term outcomes, and explore its relationship with parameters such as tissue stiffness values, pain duration, and torsion type. Elastography examinations were independently performed by two radiologists to evaluate patients who presented to our hospital for follow-up after being diagnosed with testicular torsion and age-matched controls. Inter-observer variability of the mean testicular tissue elasticity was excellent (Intraclass correlation coefficient: 0...
