Effects of pentoxifylline and progesterone on human sperm capacitation and acrosome reaction.

Abstract

This study was designed to test the effects of pentoxifylline and progesterone upon capacitation of fresh human spermatozoa. Capacitation and acrosomal integrity were assessed using the fluorescent probe chlortetracycline on spermatozoa co-stained with a supravital fluorescent dye, Hoechst 33258. Hyperactivated motility was measured using computer-assisted… (More)
