Sperm acrosomes were examined with fluorescein-labeled pisum sativum agglutinin in 137 in vitro fertilization treatments. The percentage of sperm with normal intact acrosomes in semen was correlated with sperm concentration, morphology, viability, and motility. The proportion of sperm with normal intact acrosomes was significantly increased by the "swim up" selection from semen. Fertilization rates in the whole group studied were significantly related to percentage normal morphology… CONTINUE READING
