PURPOSE The production of reactive oxygen species (ROS) is a normal physiological event in various organs including the testis. Overproduction of ROS, however, can be detrimental to sperm, being associated with male infertility. In vivo experiments using vitamin E (Vit. E), one of the major membrane protectants against ROS and lipid peroxidation, have shown its significant potential in treating ROS-associated male infertility. There has been no study that the scavenging drugs reduce the level… CONTINUE READING
