Male mice were exposed to 50 ATA heliox pressure to study whether their functional fertility was affected. In series I, control mice were exposed to 1 ATA air; in series II controls were exposed to 5 ATA heliox, which enabled the PO2 and environmental temperature to be maintained at equivalent levels to the pressure group. After exposure during one spermatogenic cycle, the mice were mated with untreated females. There was a dramatic reduction in fertility in the pressure groups, with males in… CONTINUE READING
