Testicular macrophages are guardians of fertility

(CNRS) The origin, development, and characteristics of two types of testicular macrophage have been described by a CNRS team at the Centre d'Immunologie de Marseille-Luminy. To elucidate the nature of these immune cells, the researchers used a novel cell tracing method. Their findings were published on Aug. 7, 2017, in the Journal of Experimental Medicine, and are of fundamental importance. They may help understand certain kinds of infertility in men and find new treatments for them.

This study was aimed to investigate the anti-oxidative and the ameliorative effects of Antrodia cinnamomea ethanol extract (ACEE) on reproduction dysfunction in male diabetic rats. The diabetic condition was induced by administrating the combination of streptozotocin (STZ) (65 mg/kg) and nicotinamide (NA) (230 mg/kg). Three different doses of ACEE were tested (385, 770, 1540 mg/kg) for 5 weeks. The results indicated that the ACEE improved STZ-NA induced hyperglycemia, oxidative stress, and insulin resistance. In addition to this, ACEE reduced the degree of lipid peroxidation, recovered the abnormal str...

is infrequent, with complex problems of diagnosis and treatment, especially during the cacophony of polytrauma patient management. Traumatic urethral injuries can result in a poor quality of life and carry substantial morbidity including stricture, repeated lower urinary tract infections, bleeding, recurrent pyelonephritis, peri-urethral abscesses and fistulas, incontinence, erectile dysfunction, and infertility [1].

Authors: Tola EN, Eris Yalcin S, Dugan N, Oral B Abstract PURPOSE: Type D personality-defined as the presence of two personality characters, namely negative affectivity (NA) and social inhibition (SI)-is associated with various disorders. The 14-item Type D Scale (DS14), which consists of NA and SI subscales, can be used for the detection of the presence of Type D personality. The aim of our study was to investigate the association of Type D personality and depression with infertility in women. METHOD: A total of 324 women, 168 primary unexplained infertile women (92 patients undergoing in vitro fertilization (...
