  • Several reports implicated a relation between the trinucleotide (CAG) repeat length in the androgen-receptor gene and male infertility, whereas others failed to find an association. We investigated the CAG repeat length in relation to sperm production and reproductive hormones in 119 infertile men and 110 men with proven fertility. We found no difference in the distribution of CAG repeat lengths between the groups and no association with reproductive parameters. This finding suggests that… CONTINUE READING
