Background: Numerous research studies have attempted to determine the causes of male infertility with the objective of developing therapeutic approaches to effectively improve various semen parameters. Aim: The presented intervention is a quantitative approach that categorically assesses the therapeutic advantage of oral GSH (glutathione) administration on various semen parameters including sperm concentration, morphology, and motility in infertile males. Methods: The prospective placebo…

Role of Glutathione in Male Infertility
Infertility is a worldwide problem and in almost 50% of cases infertility results from abnormality of the male partners. Apart from endocrine disorders, definitive cause and mechanism of male
The role of antioxidant therapy in the treatment of male infertility: an overview.
TLDR
Since there is no linear correlation between sperm quality and pregnancy rates, an improvement in semen parameters should not be the sole outcome considered in studies of antioxidant therapies, and more multicentre, double-blind studies performed with the same criteria are necessary for an increased understanding of the effects of various antioxidants on fertility.

TLDR
Additional randomized controlled studies are required to confirm the efficacy and safety of antioxidant supplementation in the medical treatment of idiopathic male infertility as well as the dosage required to improve semen parameters, fertilization rates, and pregnancy outcomes in iOAT.
Effect of Oxidative Stress on Male Reproduction
TLDR
This review highlights the mechanisms of ROS production, the physiological and pathophysiological roles of ROS in relation to the male reproductive system, and recent advances in diagnostic methods; it also explores the benefits of using antioxidants in a clinical setting.
Importance of sperm gluthatione treatment in ART
TLDR
The results show that treatment with glutathione could significantly reduce these stress factors and increase ART outcome and show that sperm PCC formation could be one of the major causes of failed fertilization in individuals with sperm abnormalities.
Antioxidant supplements and semen parameters: An evidence based review
TLDR
It was showed that antioxidant supplements, especially a combination of antioxidants such as vitamin C, vitamin E, and CoQ10 intake can effectively improve semen parameters in infertile men.
Review on the role of glutathione on oxidative stress and infertility
TLDR
The role oxidative stress plays in both male and female infertility, and the antioxidant action of glutathione on infertility are reviewed.
Correlation between Sperm Parameters and Protein Expression of Antioxidative Defense Enzymes in Seminal Plasma: A Pilot Study
TLDR
Evaluation of protein expression of antioxidative defense enzymes in seminal plasma might be of importance in the evaluation of male fertility status and that could be used as an additional biomarker along with classic semen analysis in assessment of semen quality.
