BACKGROUND Spermatozoa with large vacuoles (SLV) may have a negative impact on embryo development. The origin of these vacuoles is unknown. We evaluated acrosome and nucleus alterations in isolated SLV, versus unselected spermatozoa. METHODS We studied 20 patients with teratozoospermia. Spermatozoa from the native semen sample and spermatozoa presenting a(More)
Fertility preservation has been included in the management of childhood cancer treatment. Cryopreservation of immature testicular tissue is the only available solution for pre-pubertal boys. Different freezing protocols have been developed in several species but without a clearly identified procedure. We tried to evaluate several protocols for(More)
Transitional B cells have been recently identified in human peripheral blood. However, their precise role in human B cell differentiation has not been established. Therefore, besides characterizing them further in the blood of healthy adults and children and cord blood, we used the immune reconstitution after hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT)(More)
Testicular cancer is the most common cancer in young men. Several studies have reported an alteration in semen quality in nonseminoma tumors, but this result has not been confirmed in all of the published data. We performed a retrospective study in a population of 1158 men with testicular cancer who banked sperm between 1999 and 2003 in 11 French Centre(More)
STUDY QUESTION Is fertility preservation feasible after the onset of puberty in adolescents with Klinefelter syndrome (KS)? SUMMARY ANSWER Fertility preservation counseling should be an integral part of the care of XXY adolescents. Frozen ejaculated or testicular spermatozoa and even frozen immature germ cells can give them the potential to conceive their(More)
BACKGROUND Approximately 10 years after the first publication introducing the motile sperm organelle morphology examination (MSOME), many questions remained about sperm vacuoles: frequency, size, localization, mode of occurrence, biological significance and impact on male fertility potential. Many studies have tried to characterize sperm vacuoles, to(More)
Acquired estrogen receptor gene (ESR1) mutations have been recently reported as a marker of resistance to aromatase inhibitors in hormone receptor positive metastatic breast cancer. We retrospectively considered seven patients treated for metastatic breast cancer with available samples from the primary tumor before any treatment, cryopreserved metastasis(More)
With the motile sperm organelle morphology examination (MSOME), spermatozoa morphology may be assessed directly on motile spermatozoa at high magnification (up to 6600×). This procedure describes more precisely spermatozoa abnormalities, especially head vacuoles. However, no consensus has been established concerning normal or abnormal MSOME criteria. The(More)
In the management of asthenozoospermia, the spermogram-spermocytogram plays an important role during diagnosis. It is of major importance to distinguish between necrozoospermia and sperm vitality. An ultrastructural study of spermatozoa is processed in the case of primary infertility without female implication, severe, unexplained and irreversible(More)
Human normal spermatozoa present a specific chromatin organization, illustrated particularly by the non-random chromosome positioning. Spermatozoa with large vacuoles, described using motile sperm organelle morphology organization (MSOME), are associated with nuclear alterations, such as abnormal chromatin condensation and aneuploidy. To question a probable(More)
