Predictive value of abnormal sperm morphology in in vitro fertilization.
TLDR
By evaluating sperm morphology with the proposed strict criteria, its predictive value in in vitro fertilization is enhanced. Expand
In search of candidate genes critically expressed in the human endometrium during the window of implantation.
TLDR
Using a strict bioinformatics approach of microarray data, significant changes in candidate genes during the transition of the early to the mid-luteal phase of the human endometrium that may have functional significance for the opening and maintenance of the window of implantation are demonstrated. Expand
Follicle-stimulating hormone levels on cycle day 3 are predictive of in vitro fertilization outcome.
TLDR
Cycle day 3 FSH levels are predictive of pregnancy outcome and stimulation characteristics in IVF, and may be useful in counseling patients. Expand
Caspase activity and apoptotic markers in ejaculated human sperm.
TLDR
The data suggest that in some ejaculated sperm populations, caspases are present and may function to increase PS translocation and DNA fragmentation. Expand
Analysis of DNA fragmentation, plasma membrane translocation of phosphatidylserine and oxidative stress in human spermatozoa.
TLDR
Spermatozoa from infertile men display translocation of membrane phosphatidylserine as diagnosed by annexin V positive staining, and there is a relationship between DNA damage and oxidative stress. Expand
Sperm DNA quality predicts intrauterine insemination outcome: a prospective cohort study.
TLDR
The number of follicles, age of the woman/man and sperm DNA quality may predict IUI outcome, and the percentage of sperm with acid- + heat-resistant DNA were the parameters that predicted IUI outcomes in most of these data subsets. Expand
Somatic cell apoptosis markers and pathways in human ejaculated sperm: potential utility as indicators of sperm quality.
TLDR
In ejaculates of both subfertile and fertile men, the presence and activation of several proteins that are key constituents of apoptosis-related pathways in somatic cells, which may serve as markers for sperm quality are demonstrated. Expand
Effects of hydrogen peroxide on DNA and plasma membrane integrity of human spermatozoa.
TLDR
There was a significant and negative relationship between sperm motility and the percentages of sperm with DNA fragmentation and membrane translocated of phosphatidylserine, and the sublethal effects of oxidative stress on motion parameters were not significantly associated with membrane translocation of phosph atidylSerine. Expand
Structural Analysis of the Oligosaccharides Derived from Glycodelin, a Human Glycoprotein with Potent Immunosuppressive and Contraceptive Activities (*)
TLDR
The potent inhibitory effect of glycodelin on initial human sperm-zona pellucida binding is consistent with previous suggestion that this cell adhesion event requires a selectin-like adhesion process and raises the possibility that a convergence between immune and gamete recognition processes may have occurred in the types of carbohydrate ligands recognized in the human. Expand
The value of basal and/or stimulated serum gonadotropin levels in prediction of stimulation response and in vitro fertilization outcome.
TLDR
It is concluded that basal serum gonadotropin levels can distinguish different populations of IVF patients who tend to behave differently in terms of E2 response, oocytes obtained and transferred, and pregnancy rates and outcome. Expand
