Cigarette smoke contains chemicals which are capable of inducing aneuploidy in experimental systems. These chemicals have been shown to reach the male reproductive system, increasing oxidative DNA damage in human sperm and lowering semen quality. We have examined the association between smoking and aneuploid sperm by studying 31 Chinese men with similar demographic characteristics and lifestyle factors except for cigarette smoking. None of the men drank alcohol. These men were divided into… 
Genetic abnormality of sperm in smoker
TLDR
It is indicated that smoking cigarette causes numerical of sex chromosome aberration in sperm.
Effect of lifestyle exposures on sperm aneuploidy
TLDR
A new analysis is presented that summarizes published studies of smoking effects on sperm chromosome number and demonstrates a statistically significant increase in sperm disomy among smokers compared to nonsmokers (P < 0.001).
Lifestyle factors and sperm aneuploidy.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that changing the men's lifestyle habits may contribute to reduction of the incidence of sperm aneuploidy, and it is necessary that men continue to follow sensible health advice concerning excess weight, coffee drinking and wearing tight fitting underwear.
The mutagenic effect of tobacco smoke on male fertility
TLDR
Evidence that smoking has a mutagenic effect on sperm and how this subsequently affects male fertility is provided and the role of tobacco smoke as an aneugen will be explored.
Differential sensitivity of male germ cells to mainstream and sidestream tobacco smoke in the mouse.
TLDR
It is shown that MS and SS smoke have differential effects on the genetic integrity and function of sperm and provide further evidence that male exposure to second-hand smoke, as well as direct cigarette smoke, may diminish a couple's chance for a successful pregnancy and the birth of a healthy baby.
Smoking-induced chromosomal segregation anomalies identified by FISH analysis of sperm
TLDR
The results suggest that errors can occur in both meiosis I and II, confirming the emerging literature that the male meiotic process may generally be affected by the genotoxic damage from tobacco use.
The effects of male age on sperm DNA damage in healthy non-smokers.
TLDR
Investigation of the associations between male age and sperm DNA damage and the influence of several lifestyle factors in a healthy non-clinical group of 80 non-smokers with no known fertility problems indicates that older men have increased sperm DNADamage associated with alkali-labile sites or single-strand DNA breaks and independent of age, men with substantial daily caffeine consumption have increased DNA damage associated with double-stranded DNA breaks.
Cigarette smoking and male infertility
TLDR
It is concluded that although some smokers may not experience reduced fertility, men with marginal semen quality can benefit from quitting smoking.
Cigarette smoking affects specific sperm oxidative defenses but does not cause oxidative DNA damage in infertile men.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that smoking has a negative impact on intracellular antioxidant enzymes but that effect does not increase oxidative DNA damage.
The relationship between exposure to air pollution and sperm disomy
TLDR
Exposure to air pollution induces sperm aneuploidy, according to the hypothesis that exposure to specific air pollutants increases sperm disomy.

Smoking cigarettes is associated with increased sperm disomy in teenage men.
TLDR
Cigarette smoking among teenagers was associated with increases in disomic sperm and a diminution in specific aspects of semen quality that may affect male fertility and may increase future chances of fathering offspring with aneuploidy syndromes.

TLDR
It is concluded that, although smokers as a group may not experience reduced fertility, men with marginal semen quality who wish to have children may benefit from quitting smoking, since several small studies indicate the potential for improved semen quality after quitting smoking.
Aneuploidy in sperm and exposure to fungicides and lifestyle factors
TLDR
The present study supports earlier ones showing that smoking can increase aneuploidy in human sperm and suggests that the sensitivity of the sperm‐FISH method may not be sufficient for low‐level exposures.
Sperm chromatin damage associated with male smoking.
TLDR
It is hypothesised that smoking damages the chromatin structure and produces endogenous DNA strand breaks in human sperm, which may result in sperm DNA mutations, that predispose offspring to greater risk of malformations, cancer and genetic diseases.
Use of fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) to assess effects of smoking, caffeine, and alcohol on aneuploidy load in sperm of healthy men
TLDR
Sperm FISH proved to be a useful biomarker to detect and compare numerical cytogenetic abnormalities in human sperm cells across differing levels of exposure to smoking, caffeine, and alcohol.
Spontaneous frequencies of aneuploid and diploid sperm in 10 normal Chinese men: assessed by multicolor fluorescence in situ hybridization
TLDR
The data reported here show no marked differences in disomy and diploidy frequencies between the mainland Chinese and Canadian groups, if donor heterogeneity is taken into account.

TLDR
Assisted conception is a useful methodology for detecting disturbances in clinical outcome, meiotic maturation, and genetic integrity of human gametes, and smoking-related adducts were detectable in ovarian granulosa-lutein cells, oocytes, spermatozoa and preimplantation embryos.
Abnormalities for chromosomes 13 and 21 detected in spermatozoa from infertile men.
TLDR
It is suggested that infertile men, who are prime candidates for intracytoplasmic sperm injection, may be at a very small increased risk of aneuploid offspring.
Aneuploidy in human sperm: the use of multicolor FISH to test various theories of nondisjunction.
TLDR
The results corroborate the pooled data obtained from human sperm karyotypes and suggest that the sex chromosome bivalent and the chromosome 21 bivalent are more susceptible to nondisjunction during spermatogenesis.
Donor age and the frequency of disomy for chromosomes 1, 13, 21 and structural abnormalities in human spermatozoa using multicolour fluorescence in-situ hybridization.
TLDR
A statistically significant association with donor age was detected for the frequency of acentric fragments of chromosome 1 (P < 0.05) and the Pearson correlation coefficients were calculated to determine if a relationship existed between donor age and the frequencyof chromosome abnormalities in spermatozoa.
