Transplantation of testicular cells, also known as spermatogonial stem cell transplantation, is a relatively new approach in the field of male infertility. We used this technique to determine whether donor-derived sperm production in unrelated porcine recipients is possible following ultrasound-guided transfer of testicular cells. This study was undertaken because we had a strain of Finnish Yorkshire boars with a hereditary recessive gene defect rendering all spermatozoa immotile and… CONTINUE READING
