Although the significance of leukocytospermia in semen remains controversial, evidence exists that white blood cells (WBCs) may adversely affect sperm function and act as a potential cofactor in male infertility. Nevertheless, the mechanisms by which leukocytes may alter sperm function in vitrois unknown. Recent investigations suggest that reactive oxygen(More)
Purpose: Recruiting donors to a sperm bank program is difficult and slow because of high dropout rates and high rejection rates. The profile of successful and unsuccessful donors was determined at our sperm bank. Methods: A total of 199 men was screened from 1986 to 1994 in the anonymous sperm bank donor program; 174 (87%) men dropped out or did not meet(More)
This paper presents a novel 3D mesh watermarking scheme that utilizes a support vector machine(SVM) based classifier for watermark insertion. Artificial intelligence(AI)based approaches have been employed by watermarking algorithms for various host mediums such as images, audio, and video. However, AI based techniques are yet to be explored by researchers(More)
BACKGROUND Diabetes is a systemic disease with-well known complications involving eyes, kidneys and nerves. The presence of an extensive pulmonary microvascular circulation and abundant connective tissue raises the possibility that lung may also be a target organ in diabetes. METHODS A total of 45 subjects were included in the study. All patients were(More)
Purpose: Our purpose was to study the relationship among cryopreserved donor semen quality, pregnancy rates, and preconception sex selection after intrauterine insemination. Methods: We reviewed the records of the 203 women in our donor insemination program from 1987 to 1994 who became pregnant after more than one insemination cycle and had no female-factor(More)
Purpose: The creatine kinase level indicates sperm maturity and correlates with the spermatozoal fertilizing potential. The relationship between creatine kinase levels in subfertile men and their clinical diagnosis was examined. Methods: Patients with unexplained infertility (n = 34), varicocele (n = 20), postvasectomy reversal (n = 7), or cancer (n = 22)(More)
Purpose: This study evaluated prefreeze and postthaw semenquality before treatment in patients with different types ofsarcomas and carcinomas to determine whethercryopreservation would be of value for these patients. Methods: Semen specimens were obtained from 50 normaldonors and from 21 patients with carcinoma and from 14patients with sarcoma. The(More)
Infertility affects one in seven couples who are trying to conceive (Lamb & Lipshultz, 2000; Brugh & Lipshultz, 2004). Decreased semen quality, a measure of the ability of semen to achieve fertilisation, is a primary cause of male infertility. Usually, poor semen quality is characterised by low sperm motility and viability. Assisted reproductive techniques(More)
Parkinson’s disease (PD) and Alzheimer’s diseases are the most common brain diseases. Parkinson’s disease (PD) occurs when the neurons that produce dopamine in the brain are damaged. People aged 50 or above mostly suffer from Parkinson’s disease. PD and Alzheimer’s disease can be diagnosed by many different signals such as EEG and Speech signals. This paper(More)
