AIM To compare the recovery rate of morphologically normal and chromatin condensed spermatozoa from native semen samples using the SpermPrep filtration columns and Percoll gradient centrifugation and to determine the influence of the two processing techniques on fertilization and pregnancy rates in an IVF-ET program. METHODS Sixteen semen samples obtained from patient's husband were included in this study. Each was divided into two aliquots. The first aliquot was processed with SpermPrep… Expand
Chromatin condensation and morphometry of the bovine sperm head after in vitro sperm selection and capacitation
Methods of sperm selection and concentration are used to improve efficiency in obtaining viable embryos from in vitro fertilization procedures, and sperm exhibited less condensed chromatin and more uniform head shape after heparin-induced capacitation. Expand
Effects of Sperm Chromatin Integrity on Fertilization Rate and Embryo Quality Following Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection
Sperm chromatin integrity is essential for successful fertilization, embryo development and normal pregnancy, and the presence of confounding factors such as selection of spermatozoa according to normal morphology may influence the effect of sperm chromatin status on ICSI outcomes. Expand
Sperm preparation for ART
Sperm separation methods that yield a higher number of motile spermatozoa are glass wool filtration or density gradient centrifugation with different media and caffeine, pentoxifylline and 2-deoxyadenosine are substances that were used to stimulate motility. Expand
Effect of Sperm DNA Fragmentation on Clinical Outcome of Frozen-Thawed Embryo Transfer and on Blastocyst Formation
The data show that sperm DNA fragmentation measured by Sperm Chromatin Dispersion (SCD) test is not associated with clinical outcome of FET in IVF and ICSI, and SDF is related to the blastocyst formation in ICSi cycles. Expand
Effect on Sperm DNA Quality Following Sperm Selection for ART: New Insights.
In the female reproductive tract, male gametes undergo a natural sperm selection process in order to discriminate spermatozoa on the basis of their quality to maximize the chances of successfulExpand
Effect Of Glass Wool Filtration Method On Frozen-Thawed Dog Semen
Summary: The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of the glass wool filtration on motility and morphology of post-thaw quality of dog semen Two German Shepherd Dogs were used as material.Expand
Towards a more precise assay of sperm function in egg binding.
It is examined here the possibility that recombinant human zona pellucida 3 (rec hZP3), the primary sperm receptor sulfoglycoprotein of the egg ZP, be used as a human ZP surrogate for assessing sperm ability to bind to the ZP. Expand
Fertilization of IVF/ICSI using sibling oocytes from couples with subfertile male or unexplained infertility
It is suggested that adoption of the split IVF/ICSI technology in the above cases may help eliminate fertilization failures and be a useful method to investigate the effect of single factor on the employment of assisted reproductive technology. Expand
A Comprehensive and Systematic Study of Semen Quality and SpermFunctional Status in Normozoospermic Controls and Infertile Males fromSouth India
Basic differences between infertile and normozoospermic control group are established in terms of semen characteristics and sperm functional status, but the cause may be attributable to genetic or environmental factors or interaction of the two, which necessitates further detailed examination in larger cohort among heterogeneous population.

Spermiogram and biochemical approach in evaluatingmale infertility in South Karnataka
In this study, an attempt has been made to evaluate the semen profile of 132 infertile male subjects which include physical examination, microscopic studies, sperm function tests and assessment of the functional status of accessory reproductive organs according to the WHO protocol. Expand
