Effects of in utero tributyltin chloride exposure in the rat on pregnancy outcome.
Tributyltin, an organotin, is ubiquitous in the environment. The consumption of contaminated marine species leads to human dietary exposure to this compound. Tributyltin is an endocrine disruptor inExpand

In utero exposure to tributyltin chloride differentially alters male and female fetal gonad morphology and gene expression profiles in the Sprague-Dawley rat.
Tributyltin (TBT) is an environmental contaminant commonly used in anti-fouling agents for boats, as well as a by-product from several industrial processes. It has been shown to accumulate inExpand

Characterization of sperm chromatin quality in testicular cancer and Hodgkin's lymphoma patients prior to chemotherapy.
BACKGROUND Although the incidences of testicular cancer and Hodgkin's lymphoma have increased in young men over the past decade, combination chemotherapy has improved survival. As fertility is ofExpand

Induction of apoptosis in the germ cells of adult male rats after exposure to cyclophosphamide.
Treatment with cyclophosphamide, a commonly used anticancer drug, may result in oligozoospermia or azoospermia. The objective of this study was to determine whether exposure of male rats toExpand

Paternal exposure to cyclophosphamide induces DNA damage and alters the expression of DNA repair genes in the rat preimplantation embryo.
Chronic low dose treatment of male rats with cyclophosphamide, an anticancer alkylating agent, damages male germ cells, resulting in greater than 80% peri-implantation progeny loss. LittleExpand

Exposure of male rats to cyclophosphamide alters the chromatin structure and basic proteome in spermatozoa.
BACKGROUND The formation of mature sperm involves the expression of numerous proteins during spermiogenesis and the replacement of histones with protamines to package the genome. Exposure toExpand

Reversibility of the effects of subchronic exposure to the cancer chemotherapeutics bleomycin, etoposide, and cisplatin on spermatogenesis, fertility, and progeny outcome in the male rat.
Testicular cancer is the most common cancer among young men of reproductive age. A regimen of bleomycin, etoposide, and cisplatin (BEP regimen) is the standard chemotherapy for testicular cancer. BEPExpand

Critical windows of exposure for children's health: the reproductive system in animals and humans.
Drugs and environmental chemicals can adversely affect the reproductive system. Currently, available data indicate that the consequences of exposure depend on the nature of the chemical, its target,Expand

Effects of chemotherapeutic agents for testicular cancer on the male rat reproductive system, spermatozoa, and fertility.
Testicular cancer is the most common cancer affecting men of reproductive age. Advances in treatment of the disease, which include the coadministration of bleomycin, etoposide, and cis-platinumExpand

Impact of the Chemotherapy Cocktail Used to Treat Testicular Cancer on the Gene Expression Profile of Germ Cells from Male Brown-Norway Rats1
Abstract Advances in treatment for testicular cancer that include the coadministration of bleomycin, etoposide, and cisplatin (BEP) have brought the cure rate to higher than 90%%. The goal of thisExpand
