Relationship between nuclear chromatin decondensation (NCD) in vitro and other sperm parameters and their predictive value on fertilization rate in IVF program


Purpose: The purpose of this study was to determine the in-vitro induced nuclear chromatin decondensation (NCD) of human spermatozoa and its value in combination with routine semen analysis in predicting the outcome of in-vitro fertilization (IVF). Methods: The ejaculate of 52 couples, undergoing IVF, was incubated with lithium diidosalicylic acid (LIS) and… (More)
