... variations (CNVs), CNV64, CNV67 and CNV69 were associated with idiopathic maleinfertility in Spanish and Italian populations, especially CNV67 resembling the azoospermia factor deletions ... In total, 714 infertile participants were diagnosed as idiopathic infertility with different conditions (288 with non-obstructive azoospermia, 210 oligozoospermia and 216 asthenospermia) and 836 fertile participants (vasectomized ...

In conclusion, IR in men with unexplained infertility may be a cause of reproductive and metabolic abnormalities... Keyword: Maleinfertility.
This discrepancy between men with varicocele and the number of adversely affected men has led to abundant research to identify the mechanisms for formation of varicocele as well as the pathologic mechanisms by which varicoceles affect fertility potential ... In this review, we discuss the prevalence of varicocele in adults, the anatomic features of varicocele, the leading theories as to how varicocele can negatively affect fertility potential, and finally, the current literature on the impact of varicocele on testosterone production Keyword: Infertility ...

Abstract: Genetic variants of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) were implicated to be associated with maleinfertility. Our previous whole mitochondrial genome sequencing and association study has identified two susceptibility mtDNA variants for oligoasthenospermia in Han Chinese men. In this study, we tested promising associations in an extended validation using 670 idiopathic oligoasthenospermia cases and 793 healthy controls to identify additional risk ...

PPI use has recently been linked to adverse changes in semen quality in healthy men; however, the effects of PPI use on semen parameters remain largely unknown specifically in cases with male factor infertility. We examined whether PPI use was associated with detrimental effects on semen parameters in a large population of subfertile men.
... gene, is specific for the transport of steroid sulfates and is highly expressed in testicular germ cells, including pachytene spermatocytes, secondary spermatocytes, and round spermatids. Therefore, SOAT is supposed to be involved in the regulation of spermatogenesis and male fertility... If these loss-of-function SOAT variants are more frequent in men with impaired spermatogenesis or infertility needs further investigation.
