INTRODUCTION To compare the semen quality score and the seminal oxidative stress reactive oxygen species (ROS) and total antioxidant capacity (ROS-TAC score) in men with idiopathic infertility with normal donors and to a known group of fertile and infertile men.

A logistic regression analysis comparing the fertile… CONTINUE READING
