Association between the seminal plasma proteome and sperm functional traits

Tuesday, March 1, 2016
Seminal plasma proteome reflects sperm mitochondrial defects, acrosome alterations, and DNA fragmentation. Altered proteins and biological functions were identified, and a panel of biomarkers was proposed for sperm functional traits.

Nomograms for predicting changes in semen parameters in infertile men after varicocele repair

Wednesday, June 25, 2014
We formulated nomograms to predict improvements in semen parameters (total motile count, sperm concentration, motility, and morphology) after varicocele repair using multivariable linear regression.

Semen quality and time to pregnancy the Longitudinal Investigation of Fertility and the Environment Study

Friday, January 31, 2014
Semen quality parameters were associated with shorter and longer time to pregnancy (TTP) when modeled individually but not when modeled together. Male age was negatively associated with fecundity as measured by TTP.

Cytomegalovirus and human immunodeficiency virus in semen of homosexual men

Friday, January 31, 2014
Cytomegalovirus in semen of HIV-infected men is not accurately predicted by serology, the presence of HIV, leukocytospermia, or age, and correlates with CD4+ lymphocyte blood counts <700/mL.

Testosterone use in the male infertility population prescribing patterns and effects on semen and hormonal parameters

Tuesday, December 31, 2013
In Canada, testosterone is not commonly used by men presenting for fertility investigation (1.3%). Testosterone cessation generally resulted in an increase in sperm counts. A subset of men remained azoospermic.

Finasteride use in the male infertility population effects on semen and hormone parameters

Wednesday, November 27, 2013
Finasteride may cause reduced sperm counts in some men, but sperm counts improve dramatically for most after discontinuation. Finasteride should be used with caution in men who desire fertility.

Microbiota of the seminal fluid from healthy and infertile men

Thursday, October 31, 2013
High numbers of diverse kinds of bacteria were present in the semen of both sperm donors and infertility patients. There were no significant differences between these two groups based on community composition.
