  1. Participation of membrane adenylyl cyclase in heparin-induced capacitation in cryopreserved bovine spermatozoa.

    Andrologia 47(1):30 (2015) PMID 24387203

    The aim of this work was to study the participation of membrane adenylyl cyclase in heparin-induced capacitation in cryopreserved bovine spermatozoa. Sperm suspensions were incubated in Tyrode's albumin lactate pyruvate medium in the presence of heparin (10 IU ml(-1) ) or forskolin (1-75 μm), a well...
  2. Male immunity to the chlamydial 60 kDa heat shock protein (HSP 60) - associated with semen quality?

    Andrologia 47(1):66 (2015) PMID 24404853

    The role of Chlamydia trachomatis for male infertility is a matter of constant debate. It is assumed that in its persistent form this pathogen may produce high levels of 60 kD heat shock protein (Chlam HSP60). Cross-reactivity between epitopes of the bacterial and human HSPs, involved in many steps...
  3. Ethanol-induced damage in rat testis: oxidative stress-mediated germ cell apoptosis and vacuolization in Sertoli cells.

    Andrologia 47(1):3 (2015) PMID 25486874

  4. Male reproductive hormone profile in Rwandan students.

    Andrologia 46(10):1198 (2014) PMID 24313662

    To illustrate the male reproductive hormone profile, a study was conducted among healthy male university students living at Butare, Rwanda (altitude: 1 768 m, barometric pressure: 629 mm Hg). Venous blood was collected in the morning, after overnight fasting. Hormonal assays were performed by classi...
  5. Protective effect of pumpkin seed extract on sperm characteristics, biochemical parameters and epididymal histology in adult male rats treat...

    Andrologia 46(8):927 (2014) PMID 24124763

    We have assessed the possible protective efficacy of pumpkin seed extract on sperm characteristics, biochemical parameters and epididymal histology of CP-treated rats. Male adult Wistar rats were categorised into four groups. Group 1 served as control and received intraperitoneal (IP) injection of i...
  6. Oestrogen receptor alpha gene polymorphisms relationship with semen variables in infertile men.

    Andrologia 46(6):618 (2014) PMID 23822672

    This study aimed to assess the association of oestrogen receptor alpha (ER-α) gene polymorphisms and semen variables in infertile oligoasthenoteratozoospermic (OAT) men. In all, 141 men were grouped into fertile men (n = 60) and infertile OAT men (n = 81). They were subjected to assessment of semen...
  7. Protective effect of Zingiber officinale extract on rat testis after cyclophosphamide treatment.

    Andrologia 46(6):680 (2014) PMID 23889539

    Our results showed that although ginger extract could not change testis weight, malondialdehyde (MDA) and ROS, but antioxidant and testosterone levels in serum were increased significantly. Also, an obvious improved histological change was seen in CP + 300 and CP + 600 groups in comparison with CP g...
  8. Recovery from azoospermia caused by a testicular injury: a case report.

    Andrologia 46(4):447 (2014) PMID 23534890

    We report an interesting case of a patient who spontaneously recovered from azoospermia due to a traffic injury and present in detail the results of the hormonal examination and semen analysis. The patient was a 22-year-old man with a history of left testicular injury and bilateral orchidopexy. Four...
  9. Efficacy and safety of rosuvastatin in late-onset hypogonadism patients with dyslipidaemia.

    Andrologia 46(4):430 (2014) PMID 23557388

    Rosuvastatin has been used for treatment of dyslipidaemia and metabolic syndrome, but the efficacy has not yet been tested in men with late-onset hypogonadism (LOH). To assess and compare the efficacy and safety of rosuvastatin in men with dyslipidaemia with LOH and non-LOH, a retrospective study wa...
  10. Prolonged incubation of processed human spermatozoa will increase DNA fragmentation.

    Andrologia 46(4):374 (2014) PMID 24689689

    One of the causes of failure in ART is sperm DNA fragmentation which may be associated with long period of spermatozoa incubation at 37 °C. The objective was to evaluate the rate of sperm DNA fragmentation using the sperm chromatin dispersion (SCD) test after swim-up at different time intervals prio...
