The morphological changes caused by cryopreservation of the testicular tissues with different cryoprotectants have been assessed here. Testes of thirty immature male rats divided into equal five groups; Group (A) as control fresh sample, group (B) with freezing media only. Different freezing protocol were used for other groups; group (C) dimethylsulphoxide (DMSO); group (D) Glycerol and group (E) propanediol (PROH). Light and transmission electron microscope in addition to the… Expand


Optimizing cryopreservation of human testicular tissue: comparison of protocols with glycerol, propanediol and dimethylsulphoxide as cryoprotectants.
DMSO as a cryoprotectant (at a 0.7 mol/l concentration) proved to maintain the structure of testicular tissue, especially spermatogonia, after cryopreservation better than PrOH or glycerol. Expand
Effects of various cryopreservation media and freezing–thawing on the morphology of rat testicular biopsies
It is concluded that freezing–thawing of testicular biopsies, and the cryopreservation medium, have a significant impact on the structure of the seminiferous epithelium, particularly on its basal compartment. Expand
Light and electron microscopic analysis of human testicular spermatozoa and spermatids from frozen and thawed testicular biopsies.
It is concluded that the freezing and thawing of testicular biopsies causes similar morphological damage to testicular spermatozoa and frozen-thawed ejaculated spermatozosa. Expand
Effect of different cryoprotectant agents on spermatogenesis efficiency in cryopreserved and grafted neonatal mouse testicular tissue.
Findings indicate that neonatal mouse testes were most effectively preserved when frozen with HBSS medium with DMSO and that the type of CPA is a significant factor to obtain the most advanced stages of spermatogenesis and steroidogenesis after cryopreservation, thawing, and transplantation of neonatal mice testes.

A Histological and Morphometric Study of Monosodium Glutamate Toxic Effect on Testicular Structure and Potentiality of Recovery in Adult Albino Rats
We aimed to study the toxic effect of Monosodium Glutamate (MSG) on the morphology and the structure of the rat testis and to see if there is a potential recovery of the adverse effects of MSG. TheExpand
Assessment of freezing procedures for rat immature testicular tissue.
The selected freezing protocol was able to maintain rat immature testicular tissue architecture, functionality after testicular pieces organotypic culture, and could be proposed in a human application. Expand
Cryopreservation of cat testicular tissues: effects of storage temperature, freezing protocols and cryoprotective agents.
Cryopreservation of testicular tissue has become a part of gamete preservation in wild animal post-mortem. Using domestic cats as a model for wild felids, this study aimed to (i) investigate theExpand
Cryopreservation of immature porcine testis tissue to maintain its developmental potential after xenografting into recipient mice.
Cooling of testis tissue for up to 72h maintained structural integrity, cell viability, in vivo growth, and developmental potential up to complete spermatogenesis comparable with that of fresh tissue (control). Expand
Methods of cryopreservation of testicular tissue with viable spermatogonia in pre-pubertal boys undergoing gonadotoxic cancer treatment.
Pre-pubertal testicular testicular tissue from boys facing gonadotoxic treatment survives cryopreservation, can be cryobanked and hopefully used for fertility preservation. Expand
Characterization and Functionality of Proliferative Human Sertoli Cells
The results show that functional human Sertoli cells can be propagated in vitro from testicular cells isolated from adult testis and should have important applications in studying infertility, reproductive toxicology, testicular cancer, and spermatogenesis. Expand
