Authors: Adamczewska D, Slowikowska-Hilczer J, Marchlewska K, Walczak-Jedrzejowska R Abstract INTRODUCTION: There is evidence that disturbed spermatogenesis is associated with impaired Leydig cell function and that it may be the result of testicular dysgenesis during fetal/infant development. Sertoli cell-only syndrome (SCOS) is defined by complete lack of germ cells in the seminiferous epithelium. The pathogenesis of SCOS is still not well understood. The aim of the study is to evaluate testes with SCOS focusing on morphometric signs of testicular dysgenesis and markers of Leydig cell (LC) function in relation to ...
Conclusion: To the best of our knowledge, this research is the first experimental cerebral hydatidosis arisen from larval stage of Echinococcus granulosus in the animal model. PMID: 32489381 [PubMed]
Conclusions: Laparoscopic diagnosis and treatment of adnexal pathology seems to be safe due to the low percentage of perioperative complications. It shows high sensitivity in recognizing adnexal pathologies and other defects. PMID: 32489499 [PubMed]

(Kumamoto University) A research group from the Institute of Molecular Embryology and Genetics (IMEG) at Kumamoto University, Japan has discovered that the gene C19ORF57 plays a critical role in meiosis. The gene appears to be related to the cause of male infertility and could be a big step forward for reproductive medicine.
(Harvard Medical School) Human genetic diversity wouldn't be possible without DNA crossovers in egg and sperm cells. Two studies from Harvard Medical School provide new insights into how crossovers go right--and wrong, leading to infertility, miscarriages and birth defects.

Objective: To assess the efficiency of the endometrial immune profiling as a method to design personalized care to enhance the pregnancy rate in a large heterogeneous infertile population. We hypothesized that some reproductive failures could be induced by a uterine immune dysregulation which could be identified and corrected with a targeted plan.Design: Prospective cohort study.Setting: Multicentric study.Intervention(s) and Main outcome measure(s): One thousand and seven hundred thirty-eight infertile patients had an immune profiling on a timed endometrial biopsy between 2012 and 2018. This test documented the absence or...
