  • 16 April 2008
This review provides consistent findings that perception of adverse psychosocial factors in the workplace is related to an elevated risk of subsequent depressive symptoms or major depressive episode; however, methodological limitations preclude causal inference. Expand
Sperm chromatin damage impairs human fertility
The SCSA emerged as a predictor of the probability to conceive in this population-based study and Optimal sperm chromatin packaging seems necessary for full expression of the male fertility potential. Expand
Risk factors in the onset of neck/shoulder pain in a prospective study of workers in industrial and service companies
High levels of distress, and physical and psychosocial workplace factors are predictors of onset of pain in the neck and/or shoulders, particularly pain with pressure tenderness in the muscles. Expand
BMI in relation to sperm count: an updated systematic review and collaborative meta-analysis.
Overweight and obesity were associated with an increased prevalence of azoospermia or oligozoospermia, and whether weight normalization could improve sperm parameters should be evaluated further. Expand
Subfecundity in overweight and obese couples.
Couples have a high risk of being subfecund if they are both obese and this work found a dose-response relationship between increasing BMI group and subFecundity (a TTP of more than 12 months). Expand
Birth Weight and Prenatal Exposure to Polychlorinated Biphenyls (PCBs) and Dichlorodiphenyldichloroethylene (DDE): A Meta-analysis within 12 European Birth Cohorts
The findings suggest that low-level exposure to PCB (or correlated exposures) impairs fetal growth, but that exposure to p,p´-DDE does not. Expand
Is overweight a risk factor for reduced semen quality and altered serum sex hormone profile?
Findings corroborate earlier findings that overweight and obese men have a markedly changed sex hormone profile in serum, whereas reduction of semen quality, if any, was marginal and below the detection limit of this large study. Expand
Maternal Use of Acetaminophen, Ibuprofen, and Acetylsalicylic Acid During Pregnancy and Risk of Cryptorchidism
Maternal intake of acetaminophen for more than 4 weeks during pregnancy, especially during the first and second trimesters, may moderately increase the occurrence of cryptorchidism. Expand
Relation between semen quality and fertility: a population-based study of 430 first-pregnancy planners
The study suggests that the current WHO guidelines for normal semen quality should be used with caution, as some men with sperm counts above the lower limit of the normal range defined by WHO may in fact be subfertile. Expand
