BACKGROUND Cryptorchidism and oligozoospermia are clinical conditions closely associated with impaired fertility. Oxidative stress and related sperm DNA damage have been identified as significant causes of male infertility. AIM To determine the extent of sperm nuclear DNA damage in patients affected with idiopathic oligozoospermia or undescended testes and to examine its relationship with oxidative stress. PATIENTS AND METHODS We studied 20 patients with idiopathic oligozoospermia and 18… CONTINUE READING
