ConclusionsThe NPS-ASP appears to be a good parameter to assess sperm function and would be a useful tool to detect chromosomal translocations. Four redundant regions have been identified on four chromosomes, suggesting that they may contain genes of interest to study sperm functions.

This study aims to determine key genes and pathways that could play important roles in the spermatogenic process of patients with cryptorchidism. The identification of these molecules and pathways may help in understanding the etiology of cryptorchidism, and thereby reduce the incidence of cryptorchidism-induced azoospermia. The gene expression profile data of GSE25518 was obtained from the Gene Expression Omnibus (GEO) database. Microarray data were analyzed using BRB-Array Tools to identify differentially expressed genes (DEGs) between high azoospermia risk (HAZR) patients and controls. In addition, other analytical meth...

Authors: Macut D, Milutinović DV, Rašić-Marković A, Nestorov J, Bjekić-Macut J, Stanojlović O Abstract Over the last decade, huge achievements have been made in the fields of neurophysiology, molecular endocrinology, and biochemistry, as well as in the successful translation of clinical research into diseases into clinical practice. As regards female reproduction, most of the advances made in this area were achieved in gonadal axis regulation, regulation of behavior through sex steroids, reproductive genetics, preservation of ovarian reproductive function, steroid profiling, and metabolic and overall re...

Kamalov, A.Yu. EfimenkoAbstractMale infertility represents a severe social and medical challenge. In recent years the progress in regenerative medicine promoted the development of novel options to overcome this medical condition. We are elaborating a promising approach to restore spermatogenesis using mesenchymal stromal cell (MSC) secretome components as a novel class of cell-free cell therapy medicinal products for regenerative...

Abstract Non-obstructive azoospermia (NOA) is the most severe clinical diagnosis in cases of male infertility. Although in some cases of NOA spermatozoa can be retrieved by microdissection testicular sperm extraction (micro-TESE) to fertilise eggs through intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), there remains a lack of potential biomarkers for non-invasive diagnosis before micro-TESE surgery. To determine predictive biomarkers for successful sperm retrieval before micro-TESE, the aim of this study was to explore whether microRNAs (miRNAs) were differentially expressed in testicular tissues in NOA patients in whom ...
