OBJECTIVE To correlate the levels of two concrete sperm markers, cholesterol and Ca(+2), together with mitochondrial activity on raw semen samples with the post-thaw recovery of spermatozoa with progressive motility on human sperm samples as the first step to improve sperm cryostorage protocols. DESIGN Controlled prospective research project. SETTING Private and university-affiliated setting. PATIENT(S) Semen samples from 122 males attending our center for infertility (n = 47) or semen… CONTINUE READING
