BackgroundCalcifying nanoparticles (NPs) have been proven to be associated with a variety of pathological calcification and previously detected in semen samples from patients with testicular microlithiasis (TM). The present study was designed to test the hypothesis if human-derived NPs could invade the seminiferous tubules and induce TM phenotype.MethodsThe animals were divided into three groups. Normal saline (0.2 mL) was injected into the proximal right ductus deferens in group A as a control… CONTINUE READING
