Ethnicity of women undergoing fertility treatment can affect outcomes, study finds
The ethnicity of women undergoing fertility treatments like IVF can affect the rate of successful live births, according to new research. After adjusting for certain factors including age of patient at time of treatment, cause of female or male infertility, and type of treatment, the study found that White Irish, South Asian Indian, South Asian Bangladeshi, South Asian Pakistani, Black African, and Other Asian women had a significantly lower odds of a live birth than White British women.
In conclusion, the use of the GnRHa to trigger ovulation in patients undergoing ovulation induction may be considered in patients treated with IUI. PMID: 31001335 [PubMed]
CONCLUSIONS: By triggering multiple inflammatory and oxidative pathways, the combined administration of SrE, selenium and lycopene might likely improve the sperm quality. Proper studies are needed to test this hypothesis. Finally, since prostatitis can affect the sperm quality and considering the anti-estrogenic properties of SrE, we speculate about a possible specific indication in those patients with male infertility and "metabolic" prostatitis (where obesity and abnormal androgen/estrogen ratio concomitantly occur).

Wonder if I could get some coding wizards to assist - just looking for most RVU 14 yo pt comes in with mom, dad, step mom. Pt spends alternating weeks with mom and then dad. Been having worsening messages from dad who has never come to a clinic visit. Recent was essentially, what the F are you doing putting my son on Risperdal; it causes infertility? Mom has new step son that was in that same day and told her about continued issues with dad's messages. I am reaching the point where... CPT coding assistance
Conclusion(s)From a reproductive point of view, there does not seem to be any reason to recommend the increase or the decrease in general physical activity in males from infertile couples. However, additional studies are needed to investigate the relationship between weightlifting and sperm quality.
In this study, we investigated its role in sperm flagella formation and discovered that mice deficiency in Ift74 gene in male germ cells were infertile associated with low sperm count and immotile sperm. The few developed spermatozoa displayed misshaped heads and short tails. Transmission electron microscopy revealed abnormal flagellar axoneme in the seminiferous tubules where sperm are made. Clusters of unassembled microtubules were present in the spermatids. Testicular expression levels of IFT27, IFT57, IFT81, IFT88 and IFT140 proteins were significantly reduced in the conditional Ift74 mutant mice, with the exception of...
In this study, 8-week-old mice were randomly divided into four groups. Mice were fed a normal diet or an HFD with or without SFN supplementation. SFN was subcutaneously injected at a dose of 0.5 mg/kg 5 days/week for 4 weeks beginning 8 weeks after initiation of the HFD. The results demonstrated that SFN could protect against HFD-induced reproductive dysfunction in male mice. Moreover, SFN also improved reproductive ability, as demonstrated by an increased pregnancy rate and decreased embryo resorption rate in comparison to the corresponding HFD group. We also observed a decrease in apoptosis and an attenuation of endoplas...
CONCLUSION: Neither Arg194Trp nor Arg399Gln polymorphisms in the XRCC1 gene influenced risk of INOA in our study. However, these findings may be helpful in improving the understanding of the etiology of male infertility. PMID: 31004343 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Infertility and diminished fertility are relevant to pediatric populations, but only beginning to be explored and clinically managed systematically in pediatric settings. This is a significant issue, one that impacts a wide variety of pediatric patients, and complex in abundance of ways. Conceiving and/or giving birth to genetic children is only possible after the onset of puberty and typically occurs volitionally only well after that. However, pediatric patients and their families often need to grapple with fertility concerns well in advance of late adolescence and/or adulthood.
One of 2 new first-of-kind studies on HPV and infertility suggests that high-risk HPV may ascend to infect the upper genital tract, causing endometriosis and affecting fertility.
