translational andrology and urology

Sandro C Esteves, Ashok Agarwal, Chak-Lam Cho, Ahmad Majzoub
BACKGROUND: Sperm DNA fragmentation (SDF) is recognized as a leading cause of male infertility because it can impair the paternal genome through distinct pathophysiological mechanisms. Current evidence supports SDF as a major factor in the pathophysiology of several conditions, including varicocele, unexplained infertility, assisted reproductive technology failure, and environmental lifestyle factors, although the mechanisms involved have not been fully described yet. Measurement of the levels of DNA fragmentation in semen provides valuable information on the integrity of paternal chromatin and may guide therapeutic strategies...

OBJECTIVE: To translate the English version of The Premature Ejaculation Diagnostic Tool (PEDT) into Chinese, evaluate its reliability and validity, and analyze its feasibility in the diagnosis of premature ejaculation (PE). METHODS: Following the forward-backward translation procedure, we developed the Chinese version of PEDT, which was then revised by andrologists and bilingual linguists. We enrolled subjects with or without PE from 15 urological or andrological clinics in China and obtained the information about their demographic characteristics, PEDT scores, and intra-vaginal ejaculation latency time (IELT)...

Urologist 2.0: how to lead the changeModern urology started about 150 years ago in France, with a strong contribution made by other European countries including Italy. The figure of the modern urologist is linked to a technological evolution but also to the contribution made by great men who have played a crucial role in the evolution of the surgical technique and in the clinical approach to the discipline. An analysis of the evolution of the surgical technique of radical prostatectomy can be paradigmatic in describing the development and, above all, the direction of the hyper-specialization concerning the urologic discipline...

Two issues of this Journal are devoted to the history of andrology and male sexuality, from Hippocratic medicine to contemporary ethical problems due to the increasing role of technology in human reproduction. Studies have been devoted to: the Hippocratic Corpus, to authors of the Roman Empire, to Byzantine medicine; the transmission of ancient texts through Arabic and other languages of the Middle East; the influence of Constantinus Africanus' translations from Arabic to Latin; early modern theories about semen, male sexuality, impotence...

With such a wide array of computational tools to solve inference problems, andrologists and their mathematical or statistical collaborators face perhaps bewildering choices. It is tempting to criticize a method with which one is unfamiliar for its apparent complexity. Yet, many methods are quite elegant; neural computation uses nature's own best biological classifier, for example, and genetic algorithms apply rules of natural selection. Computer scientists will likely find no one single best inference engine to solve all classification problems...

It is clear that modern information technology is having a profound impact on the way researchers and clinicians exchange information. Use of the Internet is one example of how such change can be translated into scientific progress and improved patient care. Androlog, a moderated international information exchange, has proven to be very useful in the transfer of information pertaining to the study and treatment of male reproductive disorders. Allowing instantaneous dispersal of messages to members in 27 countries, this system has become a valuable source of scientific information, as well as an excellent forum for the discussion of a broad range of clinical and laboratory topics...
