Malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumour of penis.
We present a case of penile MPNST in a 38-year-old man in the absence of neurofibromatosis treated with surgery followed by post-operative radiotherapy to a dose of 60 Gray in 30 fractions and adjuvant chemotherapy with ifosfamide and adriamycin. © 2014 Blackwell Verlag GmbH....
Experimental Escherichia coli epididymitis in rats: assessment of testicular involvement in a long-term follow-up.
The objective of this study was to investigate spermatogenesis and testicular inflammation in a rat model of unilateral Escherichia coli epididymitis in a long-term follow-up. Unilateral epididymitis was induced in 30 Sprague-Dawley rats by injecting E. coli into the right ductus deferens. Oral anti...
Human catalase gene polymorphism (CAT C-262T) and risk of male infertility.
Infertility is the failure of a couple to engender after endeavouring at least one full year of unprotected intercourse. It has been reported that reactive oxygen species contributed to pathogenesis of various disease. To inactivate ROS cells biosynthesise several antioxidant enzymes, one of them is...
Male reproductive hormone profile in Rwandan students.
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...
Genetic analysis of the human Insulin-like 3 gene: absence of mutations in a Greek paediatric cohort with testicular maldescent.
I was further employed. Products were analysed on 2% agarose gel and restriction patterns were visualised by ethidium bromide. Differences in genotype and allelic distributions of nonsilent genetic alterations were evaluated between (i) patients-controls, (ii) familial-sporadic, (iii) bilateral-unil...
Protective effect of pumpkin seed extract on sperm characteristics, biochemical parameters and epididymal histology in adult male rats treat...
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...
Oestrogen receptor alpha gene polymorphisms relationship with semen variables in infertile men.
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...
Protective effect of Zingiber officinale extract on rat testis after cyclophosphamide treatment.
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...
Recovery from azoospermia caused by a testicular injury: a case report.
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...
Efficacy and safety of rosuvastatin in late-onset hypogonadism patients with dyslipidaemia.
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...
