To investigate the possible similarities between the reactive oxygen generating systems of the leukocyte and the spermatozoa, and to identify possible biochemical differences between fertile and infertile patients, the effect of various stimulants on the production of reactive oxygen in fertile, fertile with varicocele and infertile patients was examined. Generation of reactive oxygen species by human spermatozoa was examined in 2 patient groups: a fertile group (14), which included 7 patients… CONTINUE READING
