The present study was undertaken to evaluate the frequency and nature of mutations in the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) gene in infertile patients undergoing intracytoplasmic sperm injection. A total of 90 patients were screened for a panel of 10 mutations in the CFTR gene frequently involved in congenital absence of the vas(More)
Sperm examination, quantitative sperm culture, citric acid, acid phosphatase, and fructose were assayed in three groups of men: fertile controls without significant bacteriospermia (group I), infertile men with significant bacteriospermia; idiopathic infertile men (group II), and infertile men with varicocele (group III). Level of significance of(More)
Binding and degradation of human chorionic gonadotrophin (hCG) to testicular tissue obtained by biopsy from 9 men with gonadal disorders were investigated. Vacant hCG receptors were assayed in partially purified testicular homogenates using [125I]hCG (radioiodinated with chloramine T). Degradation of [125I]hCG during exposure to human testicular(More)
Infertile men with varicocele or idiopathic infertility were compared with a control group. Spermocytograms were taken and the following radioimmunological plasma analyses carried out: testosterone, FSH and LH before and after 50 micrograms LRH, Prolactin (PRL) before and after 200 micrograms TRH; in addition, 8 patients with varicoceles and 3 controls(More)
