This study demonstrates preservation of tissue integrity, maintenance of proliferating spermatogonia and Leydig cell functionality after vitrification and transplantation of non-human primate immature testicular tissue. The objective was to assess the potential of vitrification of non-human primate immature testicular tissue (ITT) in an in vivo xenotransplantation model. Testicular tissue was obtained from one immature rhesus monkey (Macaca mulatta) aged 4 years. Collection and vitrification of… CONTINUE READING
