Infertile men may have a higher risk of early death

Those who have no sperm in their semen - about 15 percent of male infertility cases - have an average life expectancy of 48, according to data on more than 50,000 Danish men from 1994 to 2015.

Authors: Saleh R, Assaf H, Abd El Maged WM, Elsuity M, Fawzy M Abstract Objective: To investigate the effects of in vitro myo-inositol (Myo-Ins) supplementation of cryopreserved human semen on the cryo-survival rate (CSR). Methods: Semen samples were obtained from 41 infertile men. Following routine semen analysis, each sample was divided into two equal aliquots (0.5 mL each). One aliquot was treated with 1 mg of Myo-Ins dissolved in 10 µL of sperm preparation medium. The second aliquot was treated with 10 µL of the same medium (control). Both aliquots were incubated for 20 minutes prior to freezing...

CONCLUSIONS: Women can be reassured that fertility drugs do not appear to significantly increase the risk of invasive ovarian, endometrial, breast or other cancers, while achieving a pregnancy at an earlier age is a significant protective factor. PMID: 30536354 [PubMed - in process]

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a complex endocrine condition that represents a lifelong health concern for 1 in 10 women worldwide.1 PCOS is commonly diagnosed by the presence of ovulatory dysfunction, androgen excess, and/or ovaries with polycystic morphology on ultrasound examination.2 Half of patients experience overweight or obesity.3 Most are at increased risk for serious comorbidities, including infertility, pregnancy complications (eg, gestational diabetes mellitus), impaired glucose tolerance, insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes mellitus, cardiovascular disease, gynecological cancers, anxiety, depression, eati...

ABSTRACT Introduction: We evaluated the relationship between total testicular volume (TTV) and testicular volume differential (TVD) in adolescent males with varicocele. Both low TTV and high TVD have been independently associated with higher incidences of infertility later in life, but a predictive relationship between TTV and TVD directly has yet to be described. Materials and Methods: We retrospectively analyzed a database of Tanner 5 boys ages 16-21 who presented with varicocele at a single institution between 2009 and 2017. All patients had a scrotal sonogram prior to surgical intervention. TTV and TVD were calculated ...

ConclusionEndometrial HOXA-10 gene expression in women with endometriosis is significantly down-regulated than in those without endometriosis. Endometriosis patients with infertility have significantly lower levels of endometrial HOXA-10 gene expression than endometriosis without infertility; thus decreased expression of this gene may, directly or indirectly, be related with the endometriosis-associated infertility. Severe endometriosis cases express, in their both endometrium and endometrioma tissues, significantly lower levels of HOXA-10 gene than moderate endometriosis cases.

(Natural News) The Canadian equivalent of CNN has shamelessly published a climate “infographic” that suggests the number one thing everyday people can do to help “mitigate” climate change is to stop having children. Pointing to a study published in the journal Environmental Research Letters, CBC News says there’s actually nothing more effective at combating climate...

ConclusionOur study showed that the microfluidic technique does not change fertilization, CPR, and LBR during IVF treatment for couples with unexplained infertility. Despite the fact that the total number of grade 1 embryos after ICSI treatment and the surplus number of grade 1 embryos after embryo transfer were higher in the microfluidic technique group, the study was not powered to detect this difference.Trial registrationNCT02488434

ConclusionErectile dysfunction should be considered the most widely researched, published and cited field within andrological practice. This study provides a list of the most influential manuscripts in andrology and serves as a reference of what comprises a ‘highly citable’ paper for both researchers and clinicians.
