ETHNOPHARMACOLOGICAL RELEVANCE Mucuna pruriens Linn. (M. pruriens) is a leguminous plant that has been recognized as an herbal medicine for improving fertility and related disorders in the Indian traditional system of medicine, however without proper scientific validations. AIM OF THE STUDY To study the effect of ethanolic seed extract of M. pruriens on mitochondrial dysfunction and the DNA damage in hyperglycemic rat epididymal spermatozoa. MATERIALS AND METHODS Male Wistar albino rats… Expand
Attenuation of reproductive dysfunction in diabetic male rats with timber cultured Antrodia cinnamomea ethanol extract.
TLDR
It is confirmed that the ACEE has anti-inflammatory and ameliorative effects to prevent diabetes-induced male reproductive dysfunction and the DNA damages and mitochondrial membrane potential were improved in sperm. Expand
INVIVO EVIDENCES OF CURCUMA LONGA ON OXIDATIVE STRESS IN STZ-INDUCED DIABETES ON SPERM PARAMETERS IN MALE WISTAR RATS
Several conditions such as chemotherapy and toxins can interfere with spermatogenesis and reduce sperm quality and production. In the case where natural antioxidant response cannot manage oxidativeExpand
Chlorophytum borivilianum (Safed Musli) root extract prevents impairment in characteristics and elevation of oxidative stress in sperm of streptozotocin-induced adult male diabetic Wistar rats
TLDR
C. borivilianum root extract prevents the decrease in sperm count, percentages of forward motility, viability, HOS and the increase in abnormal sperm percentage and caspase-3 level in diabetic rats. Expand
A study of the aphrodisiac properties of Cordyceps militaris in streptozotocin-induced diabetic male rats
TLDR
CM treatment in STZ-induced diabetic rats significantly improved the epididymal sperm parameter and serum testosterone level and, in turn, their copulatory behavior and provided new information on the pharmacological properties of CM in ameliorating testicular damage due to oxidative stress and improving sexual performance in diabetic male rats. Expand
MAT, a Novel Polyherbal Aphrodisiac Formulation, Enhances Sexual Function and Nrf2/HO-1 Pathway While Reducing Oxidative Damage in Male Rats
TLDR
Oral consumption of MATs combination in male rats resulted in inhibition of NF-κB and MDA and also increased sex hormones with Nrf2-mediated HO-1 induction, and MAT combinations may improve sexual functions by increasing levels of sexual hormones and regulation of NF1/HO1 and NRF2/HO-1 signaling pathways. Expand
Evaluation of antioxidant capacity and reproductive toxicity of aqueous extract of Thai Mucuna pruriens seeds.
TLDR
T-MP seed extract exhibited antioxidant capacity and was not harmful to reproductive tissues, and had a phytoestrogenic effect on females and increased the expression of testicular and sperm markers of male fertility. Expand
Fertility Enhancing Potential of Mucuna pruriens Seeds in Female Sprague-Dawley Rats
TLDR
The effect of oral administration of methanolic seed extract of Mucuna pruriens on oestrous cycle, ovulation, reproductive hormones and oxidative stress in the ovary of cyclic Sprague-Dawley rats was determined. Expand
Efficacy of Tribulus terrestris extract and metformin on fertility indices and oxidative stress of testicular tissue in streptozotocin-induced diabetic male rats
TLDR
It can be concluded that TT extract as compared to metformin has potential effect against spermatotoxic and testicular toxicity and it can improve redox state in diabetic male rats. Expand
Therapeutic potential of Mucuna pruriens (Linn.) on ageing induced damage in dorsal nerve of the penis and its implication on erectile function: an experimental study using albino rats
TLDR
The results indicate a multi-factorial therapeutic activity in penile innervations towards sustaining the penile erection in the presence of the extract in aged rats and justifying the claim of traditional usage. Expand
The anti-oxidant effects of ginger and cinnamon on spermatogenesis dys-function of diabetes rats.
TLDR
Combined ginger and cinnamon have significant beneficial effects on the sperm viability, motility, and serum total testosterone, LH,FSH and serum anti-oxidants' level and could be effective for maintaining healthy sperm parameters and male reproductive function in diabetics. Expand

Effect of Mucuna pruriens (Linn.) on sexual behavior and sperm parameters in streptozotocin-induced diabetic male rat.
TLDR
The present work reveals the potential efficacy of ethanolic seed extract of M. pruriens to improve male sexual behavior with androgenic and antidiabetic effects in the STZ-induced diabetic male rats. Expand
Effect of Mucuna pruriens on oxidative stress mediated damage in aged rat sperm.
TLDR
Sperm damage in ageing was significantly reduced by quenching ROS, improving antioxidant defence system and mitochondrial function, and present observation indicates the antioxidant enhancing property, free radical quenched ability and spermatogenic efficacy of the M. pruriens. Expand

The effect of Momordica charantia and Mucuna pruriens in experimental diabetes and their effect on key metabolic enzymes involved in carbohydrate metabolism
TLDR
The alteration in hepatic and skeletal muscle glycogen content and hepatic glucokinase, hexokinase and glucose‐6‐phosphate and phosphofructokinase levels in diabetic mice were partially restored by MC but not by MP, and the mechanism of action of MC and MP is discussed. Expand
Protective role of lycopene on cisplatin-induced changes in sperm characteristics, testicular damage and oxidative stress in rats.
TLDR
The results from this experimental study suggest that the lycopene have a possible protective effect against cisplatin-induced spermiotoxicity, effect of giving Lycopene after cisplinatin being superior to the giving it before cisplillin, although the mechanism is not clear. Expand
Effects of hyperglycemia on sperm and testicular cells of Goto-Kakizaki and streptozotocin-treated rat models for diabetes.
TLDR
Hyperglycemia has an adverse effect in sperm concentration and motility via changes in energy production and free radical management and both animal models present some metabolic adaptations, increasing the efficiency of mitochondrial ATP production, in order to circumvent the deleterious effects promoted by the disease. Expand
Early oxidative stress in testis and epididymal sperm in streptozotocin-induced diabetic mice: its progression and genotoxic consequences.
TLDR
Based on the occurrence of oxidative impairments in STZ-treated mice both during both early and progressive phase, it is hypothesized that oxidative stress mechanisms may be wholly or in part contribute towards the development of testicular dysfunction and degeneration under situations of experimentally induced diabetes in animal models.
