In this study, we investigated the mechanistic basis for improvement of semen parameters and reversal of testis damage by QLPs in a rat model of oligoasthenospermia induced by treatment with tripterygium glycosides (TGs) (40 mg/kg) once daily for 4 weeks. Rats were administered QLPs (1.62 g/kg or 3.24 g/kg) each day for 60 days, with untreated animals serving as controls. The concentration and motility of sperm extracted from rat epididymis were determined, whereas histopathological examination and immunohistochemical apoptosis analysis of rat testes was performed. Expression profiles of apoptosis-related genes were determ...

(BJOG. 2017;124:1198–1205) Assisted reproductive technology (ART) is used in many countries as infertility occurs in ∼9% of the world population. In some European countries it has been reported that at least 3% of children were conceived via ART. Severe postpartum hemorrhage (PPH) is a leading cause of maternal morbidity and the association between PPH and pregnancies achieved by ART is unclear. The aim of this case-control study was to determine whether an association exists between ART and severe PPH as well as to determine whether any association was affected by other risk factors for severe PPH.

Unfortunately, they just cannot afford to do an IVF cycle for financial reasons, and they end up without a baby. It fair to say  that  this causes them a significant amount of  frustration and heartburn when you know that IVF can help you get pregnant; but you can ’t, because you just can’t afford the treatment.Can this be changed? But it ’s not just the patients who are affected; IVF specialists also go through a lot of anguish when this happens. It’s very difficult to come to terms with the...

Authors: Nappi L, Ottaviano M, Rescigno P, Fazli L, Gleave ME, Damiano V, De Placido S, Palmieri G Abstract Background: Cisplatin-based chemotherapy significantly improved the survival of patients with germ cell testicular cancer. However, long term side effects of chemotherapy have non-negligible impact on the quality of life of these young patients, who have a long life expectancy after being successfully treated. Materials and Methods: 25-OH vitamin D, testosterone, FSH and LH of patients with testicular cancer were retrospectively evaluated and for each patient clinical information were collected. The tissu...
