Novel Microbes Associated With Pelvic Inflammatory Disease, InfertilityNovel Microbes Associated With Pelvic Inflammatory Disease, Infertility

Four novel microbial species seen in bacterial vaginosis (BV) are also associated with pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) and infertility, suggesting that optimal treatment for PID needs to target these microbes, too, U.S. researchers say. Reuters Health Information

Abstract During recent years, an increasing percentage of male infertility has to be attributed to an array of environmental, health and lifestyle factors. Male infertility is likely to be affected by the intense exposure to heat and extreme exposure to pesticides, radiations, radioactivity and other hazardous substances. We are surrounded by several types of ionizing and non-ionizing radiations and both have recognized causative effects on spermatogenesis. Since it is impossible to cover all types of radiation sources and their biological effects under a single title, this review is focusing on radiation deriving...

The effect of phenolic antioxidants (dihydroquercetin, p-tyrosol, dibornol) on the morphology, functions, and redox processes in the reproductive cells of male rats was studied on the model of experimental pathospermia. All antioxidants reduced the percentage of degenerative forms of spermatozoa. Dibornol was most effective. Dihydroquercetin and p-tyrosol did not increase the total number of spermatozoa and the percentage of their mobile forms. These indicators were improved only by dibornol. After administration of all test drugs, the antioxidant potential of spermatozoa increased and did not significantly differ from the baseline values.

Publication date: December 2018Source: Seminars in Cell &Developmental Biology, Volume 84Author(s): Gabriela Huelgas-Morales, David GreensteinAbstractIn virtually all sexually reproducing animals, oocytes arrest in meiotic prophase and resume meiosis in a conserved biological process called meiotic maturation. Meiotic arrest enables oocytes, which are amongst the largest cells in an organism, to grow and accumulate the necessary cellular constituents required to support embryonic development. Oocyte arrest can be maintained for a prolonged period, up to 50 years in humans, and defects in the meiotic maturation process ...

CHELMSFORD (CBS) – Infertility can be a painful experience for couples trying to start a family. It’s a roller coaster ride of emotion that Shawn and Shannon McNamee know well. For more than a year, Shannon injected herself hundreds of times. They tried several rounds of in vitro fertilization (IVF). Nothing worked. “You would get really hopeful and optimistic, then it would crash. The results came back negative every time,” Shawn told WBZ-TV. The McNamees decided to adopt and now their living room is filled with toys and their hearts with love. Their son Logan is happy and curious and in no way int...

To explore associations between infertility and metabolic syndrome, and cardiovascular events. Infertility is increasingly a public health issue, with emerging links to chronic disease. Existing literature on infertility focuses primarily on known causes, which likely excludes a substantial number of women for whom there is no known cause or formal diagnosis.
