Anti-Apoptotic Effect of Semelil on Testicular Germ Cells in Streptozotocin-lnduced Chronic Diabetic Rats

  author={M. Anjomshoa},
Diabetes is associated with human reproductive dysfunction in both males and females [1-7]. The increasing incidence of diabetes diagnosed at reproductive age is an issue showing the importance of research on fertility in this group [1-3,6-7]. Several lines of studies demonstrate that diabetes affects male reproductive function at multiple levels due to its effects on the endocrine control of spermatogenesis, spermatogenesis itself or by impairing penile erection and ejaculation [1-8].
