AIM To evaluate the effects of 1,3-dinitrobenznene (mDNB) on sperm motility of hamster and to correlate the results with the fertility. METHODS Adult male hamsters were gavaged with one of the 3 dose regimes of mDNB (1.5 mg daily for 4 weeks, 1.5 mg one day a week for 4 weeks and 1.0 mg 3 days a week for 4 weeks).

AIM To evaluate the effects of acute and chronic doses of methoxy acetic acid (MAA) on in vitro fertilisation by hamster sperm and to correlate the data with the testicular damage. METHODS Adult male hamsters were gavaged with 3 single doses (0, 80, 160 and 650 mg/kg) and 3 chronic doses (0, 8, 32 and 64 mg/kg daily for 5 weeks) of MAA in distilled water.(More)
Extensive use of organophosphorus pesticides (OPs) could alter semen quality and sperm DNA at different stages of spermatogenesis. Acephate is a highly toxic extensively used OP and, therefore, we aimed to evaluate the effects of acephate on human semen quality and sperm DNA integrity. Sperm collected from healthy males were exposed to 0, 50, 100, and 200(More)
