INTRODUCTION: Azoospermia affects more than 10% - 15% of infertile male subjects attending infertilty clinics. At present, testicular biopsy is the golden standard procedure for evaluating spermatogenesis status in men with azoospermia. Semen collection and analysis is a non-invasive method and has proven to be valuable in the evaluation of spermatogenesis. Identification of seminal plasma markers with testicular or extra-testicular origins have a great value in predicting the prescence of sperm in testicular tissue and presumptive cause of azoospermia...

The development of in vitro fertilisation (IVF) as a treatment for human infertilty was among the most controversial medical achievements of the modern era. In Ireland, the fate and status of supranumary (non-transferred) embryos derived from IVF brings challenges both for clinical practice and public health policy because there is no judicial or legislative framework in place to address the medical, scientific, or ethical uncertainties. Complex legal issues exist regarding informed consent and ownership of embryos, particularly the use of non-transferred embryos if a couple separates or divorces...

BACKGROUND: Eppin (epididymis protease inhibitor) appears to play an important role in primate fertility. However, the function of Eppin and its antibody in men and its relationship with men's infertility are poorly studied. To reveal the significance and possibility of detection of anti-Eppin antibody in clinical infertilty cases, we developed an Escherichia coli expression system for the expression of biologically active human Eppin. METHODS: The human Eppin gene was cloned into PET-28a( )+ vector after induction with 0...

PURPOSE: The purpose of the present study is to compare intrauterine insemination (IUI) pregnancy rates (PR) as a function of diagnosis and ovulation protocol utilizing an extended semen transport time. This allowed clients to conveniently collect IUI specimens in the comfort and privacy of their home. A single IUI per treatment cycle was performed. BASIC PROCEDURES: Three-hundred-ten consecutive infertilty couples having unexplained, male factor, ovulatory dysfunction, endometriosis, tubal factor or combined diagnostic factors receiving a total of 584 cycles of IUI were included...

Infertility is a common condition seen in primary care practices. Infertility is defined as 1 year of unprotected intercourse during which a pregnancy is not achieved. in the United States, 15% to 20% of all couples are infertile, with higher rates seen in older couples. The causes of infertility include abnormalities of any portion of the male or female reproductive system. The female partner usually presents initially for an infertilty problem, often in the context of an annual well-women examination. The primary care physician who provides such preventive care can initiate the diagnostic evaluation and can treat some causes of infertility...

BACKGROUND: The androgen, Danazol, was developed in the 1970's as a treatment for endometriosis. Its use was soon advocated in women with unexplained infertility. Two randomized trials were subsequently conducted to assess the effectiveness of danazol in this population. OBJECTIVES: The objective of this review was to assess the effects of danazol on pregnancy rates in women with unexplained subfertility. SEARCH STRATEGY: The Cochrane Subfertility Review Group specialised register of controlled trials was searched...

The objective of the study was to evaluate, in patients with unexplained infertilty, the possible relationship between anticardiolipin antibodies and indices of uterine artery Doppler measurements. A total of 46 infertile women participated in the study and underwent ovarian stimulation. Transvaginal ultrasonography and colour Doppler were performed on the day of embryo transfer and patients were divided on the basis of pulsatility index (PI): group I, PI <2.5; group II, PI 2.5-3.0; and group III, PI >3...
