This study was undertaken to evaluate the possibility of identifying men at increased risk of sperm aneuploidy and diploidy on the bases of specific cut-off values of the total normal motile count (TNMC). Twenty-seven consecutive, unselected male patients referred to our Unit were studied: 11 patients with normal sperm parameters (group A) suffering from unexplained infertility and 16 infertile patients with abnormal sperm parameters (group B). Disomy rates for chromosomes 1, 4, 8, 12, 18, X… CONTINUE READING
