Although the significance of leukocytospermia in semen remains controversial, evidence exists that white blood cells (WBCs) may adversely affect sperm function and act as a potential cofactor in male infertility. Nevertheless, the mechanisms by which leukocytes may alter sperm function in vitrois unknown. Recent investigations suggest that reactive oxygen species (ROS) generated by the polymorphonuclear (PMN) granulocytes could adversely affect sperm function. The objective of this study was to… CONTINUE READING
