Semen samples from a fertile patient presenting with influenza and a 1-day fever of 39.9 degrees C were obtained and analyzed at 18-66 days postfever (dpf) for sperm nuclear proteins, DNA stainability, free thiols (-SH), and susceptibility to DNA denaturation in situ. At 18 dpf, 36% of sperm demonstrated denatured DNA as measured by the sperm chromatin structure assay (SCSA), and decreased to 23% by 39 dpf. Samples at 33 and 39 dpf contained 49% and 30%, respectively, of cells with increased… CONTINUE READING
