A significant association between male subfertility, imperfect spermiation and abnormal nuclear condensation has been suggested. The DNA content of spermatozoa might be responsible for inducing alterations in sperm morphology. The final nuclear shape, which is species-specific, depends on chromatin condensation during spermatogenesis as well as a precise(More)
Success of IVF with low sperm count will depend on the retrieval of the maximum number of normal motile sperms, and this makes the selection of an appropriate technique critical. Various in vitro methods have been developed for selecting human sperm cells. Sperm selection using percoll gradient has been reported to yield upto 60% motile and morphologically(More)
In this study, a total of 95 ejaculates from infertile patients were investigated morphologically according to Kruger's strict criteria and 78 of the 95 ejaculates were stained for chromatin condensation with acidic aniline blue. Patients were divided into two groups based on the percentage of morphologically normal spermatozoa as follows: Men with normal(More)
The main purpose of this study was to determine the possible relationship between chromatin condensation (Aniline Blue staining), the morphology of spermatozoa according to strict criteria, and the fertilization, cleavage and pregnancy rate in an intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) programme. A total of 60 patients were divided into two groups (27(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine the negative effects (cryodamage) on human spermatozoa after freeze-thawing and to determine whether freeze-thawing of spermatozoa with a programmed slow freezer is better than freezing with liquid nitrogen vapour (rapid freezing) with regard to alterations in sperm chromatin and morphology in semen from fertile(More)
This research examined whether treatment with zero-valent iron in the presence of oxygen is a suitable process for the degradation of pharmaceuticals (antibiotics, cytostatic drugs) and diagnostic agents. It was shown that the concentration of all selected compounds was decreased efficiently by treatment with iron. The compounds exhibited a(More)
— This paper presents a systematic approach for the design of an instrumentation architecture and a sensor data fusion concept which together enable the robust control of complex electromechanical systems. The development is based on the theory of hyperstability. Earlier results are generalized and previous restrictions on sensors are relaxed to broaden the(More)
With an incidence of 0.1% to 1.0% of all genital malignancies, primary tubal carcinoma is a rare malignant disease of the female genital tract. The prognosis is generally regarded as very poor. It is comparable with that of ovarian carcinoma. From 1980-1995, four patients were treated for primary tubal carcinoma at the Department of Gynecology and(More)
