Beta-endorphin in serum and seminal plasma in infertile men. (1/72)

AIM: To access beta-endorphin levels in serum as well as seminal plasma in different infertile male groups. METHODS: Beta-endorphin was estimated in the serum and seminal plasma by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) method in 80 infertile men equally divided into four groups: non-obstructive azoospermia (NOA), obstructive azoospermia (OA), congenital bilateral absent vas deferens (CBVAD) and asthenozoospermia. The results were compared to those of 20 normozoospermic proven fertile men. RESULTS: There was a decrease in the mean levels of beta-endorphin in the seminal plasma of all successive infertile groups (mean +/- SD: NOA 51.30 +/- 27.37, OA 51.88 +/- 9.47, CBAVD 20.36 +/- 13.39, asthenozoospermia 49.26 +/- 12.49 pg/mL, respectively) compared to the normozoospermic fertile control (87.23 +/- 29.55 pg/mL). This relation was not present in mean serum level of beta-endorphin between four infertile groups (51.09 +/- 14.71, 49.76 +/- 12.4, 33.96 +/- 7.2, 69.1 +/- 16.57 pg/mL, respectively) and the fertile control group (49.26 +/- 31.32 pg/mL). The CBVAD group showed the lowest seminal plasma mean level of beta-endorphin. Testicular contribution of seminal beta-endorphin was estimated to be approximately 40%. Seminal beta-endorphin showed significant correlation with the sperm concentration (r = 0.699, P = 0.0188) and nonsignificant correlation with its serum level (r = 0.375, P = 0.185) or with the sperm motility percentage (r = 0.470, P = 0.899). CONCLUSION: The estimation of beta-endorphin alone is not conclusive to evaluate male reproduction as there are many other opiates acting at the hypothalamic pituitary gonadal axis.  (+info)

Association between the apolipoprotein B signal peptide gene insertion/deletion polymorphism and male infertility. (2/72)

In male mice heterozygous for a null apolipoprotein B (apoB), allele infertility was noticed. These data led us to investigate a possible role of APOB gene polymorphism and male infertility in humans. In this case-control study, we searched for an association between the insertion/deletion (I/D) polymorphism of the APOB gene and male infertility in 560 Slovene Caucasian men. The study group consisted of 310 infertile patients: 115 with azoospermia and 195 with oligoasthenoteratozoospermia (OAT) and a control group of 250 fertile men. We found a statistically significant difference in the genotype distribution between the two groups (chi2 = 6.315, P = 0.043). A separate analysis of azoospermic and OAT patients demonstrated that significant differences in genotype distribution were limited to the OAT group (chi2 = 7.011, P = 0.030). The presence of the D allele (DD or ID genotypes) conferred a 1.6 risk [chi2 = 6.089, P = 0.014, 95% confidence interval (95% CI) = 1.102-2.347] for male infertility in the OAT group of patients. We did not find a correlation between the I/D polymorphism genotypes and the clinical characteristics of infertile men: sperm concentration (P = 0.102), rapid progressive motility (P = 0.449), normal morphology (P = 0.085) and Johnsen score (P = 0.531). These data suggest that genetic variation in the signal peptide of the APOB gene (I/D polymorphism) might be a risk factor for the development of male infertility.  (+info)

Asthenoteratozoospermia in mice lacking testis expressed gene 18 (Tex18). (3/72)

Testis expressed gene 18 (Tex18) is a small gene with one exon of 240 bp, which is specifically expressed in male germ cells. The gene encodes for a protein of 80 amino acids with unknown domain. To investigate the function of (Tex18) gene, we generated mice with targeted disruption of the (Tex18) gene by homologous recombination. Homozygous mutant males on a mixed genetic background (C57BL/6J x 129/Sv) are fertile, while they are subfertile on the 129/Sv background, although mating is normal. We showed that Tex18(-/-) males are subfertile because of abnormal sperm morphology and reduced motility, which is called asthenoteratozoospermia, suggesting that (Tex18) affects sperm characteristics. Maturation of spermatids is unsynchronized and partially impaired in seminiferous tubules of Tex18(-/-) mice. Electron microscopical examination demonstrated abnormal structures of sperm head. In vivo experiments with sperm of Tex18(-/-) 129/Sv mice revealed that the migration of spermatozoa from the uterus into the oviduct is reduced. This result is supported by the observation that sperm motility, as determined by the computer-assisted semen analysis system, is significantly affected, compared to wild-type spermatozoa. Generation of transgenic mice containing Tex18-EGFP fusion construct revealed a high transcriptional activity of (Tex18) during spermiogenesis, a process with morphological changes of haploid germ cells and development to mature spermatozoa. These results indicate that (Tex18) is expressed predominantly during spermatid differentiation and subfertility of the male Tex18(-/-) mice on the 129/Sv background is due to the differentiation arrest, abnormal sperm morphology and reduced sperm motility.  (+info)

No evidence for an mtDNA role in sperm motility: data from complete sequencing of asthenozoospermic males. (4/72)

The first complete mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) sequences (approximately 16,569 bp) in 20 patients with asthenozoospermia and a comparison with 23 new complete mtDNA sequences in teratoasthenozoospermic individuals, confirmed no sharing of specific polymorphisms or specific mitochondrial lineages between these individuals. This is strong evidence against the accepted claim of a major role played by mtDNA in male fertility, once supported by haplogroup association studies based on the screening of hypervariable region I. The hypothesis of maternally driven selection acting in male reproductive success must thus be treated with caution.  (+info)

Absence of tektin 4 causes asthenozoospermia and subfertility in male mice. (5/72)

Sperm flagellar motion is the outcome of a dynamic interplay between the axonemal cytoskeleton, the peri-axonemal accessory structures, and multiple regulatory networks that coordinate to produce flagellar beat and waveform. Tektins are conserved components of the flagellar proteome in evolutionarily diverse species and are believed to play essential roles in the mechanics of sperm motility. Using database mining, we identified multiple new paralogs of previously annotated tektins, including tektin 4 (TEKT4), which shares 77.1% identity with its nearest human homologue. Mouse Tekt4 is a germ cell-enriched gene, most abundantly expressed in haploid round spermatids in the testis, and the protein is localized to the sperm flagella. Male mice lacking TEKT4 on a 129S5/SvEvBrd inbred background are subfertile. Tekt4-null sperm exhibit drastically reduced forward progressive velocity and uncoordinated waveform propagation along the flagellum. In Tekt4-null sperm, flagellar ultrastructure is grossly unaltered as revealed by transmission electron microscopy. However, the ineffective flagellar strokes lead to approximately 10-fold higher consumption of intracellular ATP in Tekt4-null sperm as compared to wild-type, and null spermatozoa rapidly lose progressive motility when incubated for > or = 1.5 h. Our studies demonstrate that TEKT4 is necessary for the proper coordinated beating of the sperm flagellum and male reproductive physiology.  (+info)

Effect of cigarette smoking on semen quality of infertile men. (6/72)

INTRODUCTION: Defective sperm quality is a significant cause of infertility. It is known that cigarette smoking affects semen quality. Our aim was to compare the semen of infertile cigarette smokers with infertile non-smokers to study the effect of smoking on semen quality. METHODS: Semen samples of 100 cigarette smokers and 100 strictly non-smoking primary infertility patients were included in the study, following stringent exclusion criteria. Smokers were categorised as light, moderate and heavy smokers. Semen samples were examined for asthenozoospermia, oligozoospermia and teratozoospermia, according to World Health Organisation guidelines. RESULTS: 39 percent of non-smokers showed normozoospermia, while only three percent of smokers were normozoospermics. Light smokers predominantly showed asthenozoospermia. Heavy smokers showed asthenozoospermia, teratozoospermia and oligozoospermia. Statistical analysis using Fisher's exact test showed that the incidence of both isolated asthenozoospermia (p-value is 0.0015) and asthenozoospermia with teratozoospermia (p-value is 0.0106) among smokers was significant, in comparison to non-smokers. Overall impact of asthenozoospermia (p-value is less than 0.0001) and teratozoospermia (p-value is 0.0328) but not of oligozoospermia was observed on the semen quality in smokers, compared with non-smokers. CONCLUSION: Asthenozoospermia, the most common semen variable in our study, can be an early indicator of reduction in quality of semen, as seen in light smokers. In addition, heavy smoking produces teratozoospermia, which further reduces semen quality. Oligozoospermia may be due to factors other than smoking.  (+info)

Seminal plasma anti-Mullerian hormone level correlates with semen parameters but does not predict success of testicular sperm extraction (TESE). (7/72)

AIM: To assess seminal plasma anti-Mullerian hormone (AMH) level relationships in fertile and infertile males. METHODS: Eighty-four male cases were studied and divided into four groups: fertile normozoospermia (n = 16), oligoasthenoteratozoospermia (n = 15), obstructive azoospermia (OA) (n = 13) and non-obstructive azoospermia (NOA) (n = 40). Conventional semen analysis was done for all cases. Testicular biopsy was done with histopathology and fresh tissue examination for testicular sperm extraction (TESE) in NOA cases. NOA group was subdivided according to TESE results into unsuccessful TESE (n = 19) and successful TESE (n = 21). Seminal plasma AMH was estimated by enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) and serum follicular stimulating hormone (FSH) was estimated in NOA cases only by radioimmunoassay (RIA). RESULTS: Mean seminal AMH was significantly higher in fertile group than in oligoasthenoteratozoospermia with significance (41.5 +/- 10.9 pmol/L vs. 30.5 +/- 10.3 pmol/L, P < 0.05). Seminal AMH was not detected in any OA patients. Seminal AMH was correlated positively with testicular volume (r = 0.329, P = 0.005), sperm count (r = 0.483, P = 0.007), sperm motility percent (r = 0.419, P = 0.021) and negatively with sperm abnormal forms percent (r = -0.413, P = 0.023). Nonsignificant correlation was evident with age (r = -0.155, P = 0.414) and plasma FSH (r = -0.014, P = 0.943). In NOA cases, seminal AMH was detectable in 23/40 cases, 14 of them were successful TESE (57.5%) and was undetectable in 17/40 cases, 10 of them were unsuccessful TESE (58.2%). CONCLUSION: Seminal plasma AMH is an absolute testicular marker being absent in all OA cases. However, seminal AMH has a poor predictability for successful testicular sperm retrieval in NOA cases.  (+info)

Superoxide dismutase and catalase activities in the seminal plasma of normozoospermic and asthenozoospermic Beagles. (8/72)

We measured the blood plasma testosterone (T) levels and superoxide dismutase (SOD) and catalase activities in the seminal plasma of the ejaculates of 5 normal (2-5 years old) and 5 asthenozoospermic (AZ-) (3-5 years old) Beagles. Sperm ejaculated by AZ-dogs was incubated for 3 hr in Eagle's MEM only (controls) or Eagle's MEM containing 100 units/ml of SOD or catalase. Sperm motility was examined during incubation. The mean (+/- SE) plasma T level of the AZ-dogs (1.2 +/- 0.2 ng/ml) was significantly lower than in the normal dogs (2.5 +/- 0.2 ng/ml) (P<0.005). The mean (+/- SE) seminal plasma SOD and catalase activities (18.8 +/- 1.9 and 0.5 +/- 0.1 unit/g protein, respectively) were significantly lower in the AZ-dogs than in the normal dog (43.3 +/- 2.5 and 2.2 +/- 0.4 unit/g protein, respectively) (P<0.001 and 0.01, respectively). The motility of sperm incubated in Eagle's MEM containing SOD or catalase was significantly higher than that of control sperm incubated in only Eagle's MEM after 2 or 3 hr of incubation (P<0.05). The results of this study indicate that poor T secretion by the testes and low antioxidant enzyme activities are related to AZ in the dog.  (+info)

Asthenozoospermia Treatment In Lahore - How To Treat Asthenospermia. Chinese male and female fertility specialist in Lahore for fertility treatments.
The level of nerve growth factor (NGF) in the blood and seminal plasma of asthenozoospermia and oligoasthenozoospermia patients were compared to normozoospermic males and the relationship between NGF with sperm parameters and seminal antioxidant capacity were estimated to determine the role of NGF in the etiology of male infertility. Eighty-one infertile males and 40 normospermic control subjects were included in this stud. NGF levels were measured in the blood and seminal plasma, and its correlation with total antioxidant capacity (TAC), catalase (CAT) and glutathione (GSH) levels and sperm parameters were studied. There was a general trend of decreased in serum and seminal NGF concentrations of asthenozoospermic and oligoasthenozoospermic when compared to the normozoospermic samples. There was no significant association between NGF and seminal antioxidant status in asthenozoospermia and oligoasthenozoospermia males. Nevertheless, CAT positively correlated with sperm concentration, total sperm ...

There are any number of factors that can cause a problem with male fertility. Whether it is a problem with the mans sperm count, or whether he has abnormally shaped sperm, or whether he has a problem with how the sperm are moving (also known as low sperm motility), male factor fertility problems can be very frustrating things to deal with. A mans identity is, very often, wrapped up in his virility. When he as a fertility problem, it can cause a severe loss of self esteem, not to mention the frustration involved with not being able to have a baby. Knowing what can cause low sperm motility and other fertility problems for men can, however, help a man to know how to proceed with addressing the problem.. Some studies suggest, for example, that elevated levels of zinc, which may help a low sperm count, can also cause low sperm motility.

Publisher: Foundation for Cellular and Molecular Medicine. Date Issued: 2016-08-25. Abstract: Prohibitin (PHB), a major mitochondrial membrane protein, has been shown earlier in our laboratoryto regulate sperm motility via an alteration in mitochondrial membrane potential (MMP) in infertile men with poor sperm quality. To test if PHB expression is associated with sperm mitochondrial superoxide (mROS) levels, here we examined sperm mROS levels, high MMP and lipid peroxidation in infertile men with poor sperm motility (asthenospermia, A) and/or low sperm concentrations (oligoasthenospermia, OA). The diaphorase-type activity of sperm mitochondrial complex I (MCI) and PHB expression were also determined. We demonstrate that mROS and lipid peroxidation levels are significantly higher in sperm from A and OA subjects than in normospermic subjects, whereas high MMP and PHB expression are significantly lower. A positive correlation between mROS and lipid peroxidation and a negative correlation of mROS ...

Okay, so my boyfriend got a sperm count in October and was devastated with the news that it was only 4 million. I figured that it was because we didnt abstain long enough, but needless to say, our doctor was pushing IVF with ICSI. Anyways, after we searched long and hard online we came across this site...ordered Fertilaid For Men and took for only 1.5 weeks and went in for another sperm analysis....85 million / cc!! We still have an IUI appointment for my next cycle. This morning we woke up, were on our way to work and I started feeling nauseous, however I have severe acid reflux and just attributed it to that. Normally, acid comes up and Im good within 20 minutes and get on with my day, but this wouldnt go away. I had spinny head, and started having hot sweats, so I said we have to go home. Went home, passed out all day, and woke up feeling very hot and sweaty -- low grade fever. I woke up, ate Chinese with the family, went to the bathroom to check and see if there was any discharge and lo ...

Male infertility is a multifactorial disorder with impressively genetic basis; besides, sperm abnormalities are the cause of numerous cases of male infertility. In this study, we evaluated the genetic variants in exons 4 and 5 and their intron-exon boundaries in RABL2B gene in infertile men with oligoasthenoteratozoospermia (OAT) and immotile short tail sperm (ISTS) defects to define if there is any association between these variants and human male infertility.
Sperm DNA fragmentation (sDF) has been proved to be an important parameter in order to predict in vitro the potential fertility of a semen sample. Colloid centrifugation could be a suitable technique to select those donkey sperm more resistant to DNA fragmentation after thawing. Previous studies have shown that to elucidate the latent damage of the DNA molecule, sDF should be assessed dynamically, where the rate of fragmentation between treatments indicates how resistant the DNA is to iatrogenic damage. The rate of fragmentation is calculated using the slope of a linear regression equation. However, it has not been studied if sDF dynamics fit this model. The objectives of this study were to evaluate the effect of different after-thawing centrifugation protocols on sperm DNA fragmentation and elucidate the most accurate mathematical model (linear regression, exponential or polynomial) for DNA fragmentation over time in frozen-thawed donkey semen. After submitting post-thaw semen samples to no

A lot of people often joke around about someone having low sperm count. Then again, what these people are not aware of is that the condition of having a very low sperm count is not laughing matter at all. A low sperm level can mean a lot of things. Again, ones sperm levels are connected with his overall health, thus the matter ought to be taken seriously and given immediate action.. When is Sperm Count Low?. A low sperm level is the most typical infertility issue for males. Generally speaking, ones sperm count is measured based on the ratio of sperm thats ejaculated per milliliter of semen. Normal levels are usually around 40-300 million per semen millileter. Thus, a low sperm level is one thats below 20 million.. The Causes of Low Sperm Levels. A low sperm count can be brought about by a variety of factors. It could be genetic; it could possibly be caused by environmental elements, etc. The low levels might be brought on due to too much stress, or in most cases, certain nutritional ...
An intensified sperm DNA fragmentation co-occurred with both extremely low and extremely high levels of FSH and LH. Sperm DNA fragmentation was negatively correlated with testosterone level.
Most common causes of infertility in men are explained in this article. An exact cause is not known in some cases (known as unexplained infertility).. Sperm Disorders. There are four types of sperm disorders: low sperm count known as Oligospermia, complete absence of sperm cells referred to as Azoospermia, poor sperm motility known as Asthenospermia (inability of the sperm to move fast enough or to move in a straight line) and abnormal sperm morphology referred to as Teratospermia (abnormally shaped sperm). All these conditions interfere with a sperms ability to reach and fertilize an egg and are regarded as major causes of infertility in men.. Sperm disorders are results of: birth defects, hormone deficiency in the pituitary gland or hypothalamus, aging, exposure to harmful substances, radiations or high temperature, chemotherapy, sexually transmitted diseases and other lifestyle factors such as smoking, alcohol abuse, use of marijuana or cocaine, excessive exercise, bike riding, stress ...

Improving sperm motility naturally through nutrient supplementation is possible because low sperm motility is a sign of increased oxidative stress in the body.
Male factors can include low sperm count, low sperm motility, morphology and diminished testosterone production. Female factors may include anovulatory cycles (cycles that do not have an ovulation time when ovaries release a follicle to be fertilized) and other disorders of menstrual cycles (prolonged menses, short cycles, and others). Some of the other conditions can also contribute to the issue with successful conception, such as endometriosis, blockage of Fallopian tubes (uterine tubes), diminished ovarian reserve, history of STIs in both partners, surgeries and procedures done on pelvic organs (ovaries, uterus, testis, penis). Difficulty conceiving can be due to low or high thyroid function, MTHFR mutations (lack of active folate available) and other hormonal dysregulations (PCOS, for instance). ...

The microtubule (MT)‐severing enzyme katanin triggers dynamic reorientation of cortical MT arrays that play crucial functions during plant cell morphogenesis, such as cell elongation, cell wall biosynthesis, and hormonal signaling. MT severing specifically occurs at crossover or branching nucleation sites in living Arabidopsis cells. This differs from the random severing observed along the entire length of single MTs in vitro and strongly suggests that a precise control mechanism must exist in vivo. However, how katanin senses and cleaves at MT crossover and branching nucleation sites in vivo has remained unknown. Here, we show that the katanin p80 subunit KTN80 confers precision to MT severing by specific targeting of the katanin p60 subunit KTN1 to MT cleavage sites and that KTN1 is required for oligomerization of functional KTN80-KTN1 complexes that catalyze severing. Moreover, our findings suggest that the katanin complex in Arabidopsis is composed of a hexamer of KTN1-KTN80 heterodimers ...

Low sperm motility is not a big health issue. It can be diagnosed with a motility test easily. Know its causes, treatment, and how to increase sperm motility.
With increasing evidence for faulty paternal contribution to reproduction, there has been a steady increase in studies highlighting an association between sperm DNA damage, failed/delayed fertilisation and aberrant embryo development.Owing to prevailing ambiguity, the aims of the study were to analyse the genetic integrity of the male gamete and then to understand its association with age, standard semen parameters, lifestyle and occupational factors. The study included 504 subjects, attending university infertility clinic for fertility evaluation and treatment. Semen characteristics were analysed by standard criteria; terminal deoxynucelotidyl transferase-mediated nick end-labelling assay was employed for DNA damage assessment. The average incidence of sperm DNA damage in patients with normozoospermic semen parameters was ,10%. Patients with oligozoospermia, severe oligozoospermia, oligoasthenoteratospermia, asthenoteratozoospermia and necrozoospermia had significantly higher level of sperm DNA ...

Teratozoospermia is a common category of male infertility and with the increase in clinical patients and the increasing sophistication of assisted reproductive technology, there is an urgent need for an accurate semen diagnostic biomarker to accomplish rapid diagnosis of patients with teratozoospermia and accurately assess the success rate of assisted reproductive technologies. In this study, we performed gene differential expression analysis on two publicly available DNA microarray datasets (GSE6872 and GSE6967), followed by GSEA analysis to parse their enriched KEGG pathways, and WGCNA analysis to obtain the most highly correlated modules. Subsequent in-depth comparative analysis of the modules screened into the two datasets resulted in a gene set containing the identical expression trend, and then the differentially expressed genes in the set were screened using the corresponding criteria. Finally, three differentially expressed genes common to both datasets were selected. In addition, we validated
A low sperm count (scientifically referred to as oligospermia) is when the semen you ejaculate during an orgasm contains fewer sperm than is considered normal. The World Health Organization defines a low sperm count as less than 20 million sperm per milliliter of semen.
Hi I am 28 and my husband is 27 and we live in Notts. We have been ttc no 1 since Oct 08. Have very irregular cycles and hubby has a low sperm motility. Got BFP in Nov 09 but sadly had a mmc in Jan 10 at 11 weeks. First month ttc since and hoping it wont take so long again!! Got first BFP after making a few changes so doing the same things again! Hubby back on vits, brazil nuts, loose underwear and low alcohol intake. I am taking santogen vits and evening primrose oil (which I only took for the first time the month we got our BFP). Also turned CBFM on and using zestica! Who would have thought it could get so complicated when all I have to do is relax ...

If an AZ goes down, PersistentVolumes (PVs) and their data also go down and cannot be automatically re-attached. To preserve your PV data in the event of a fallen AZ, your persistent workload needs to have a failover mechanism in place.. Depending on the underlying storage type, PVs are either completely free of zonal information or can have multiple AZ labels attached. Both options enable a PV to travel between AZs.. To ensure the uptime of your PVs during a cluster upgrade, VMware recommends that you have at least two nodes per AZ. By configuring your workload as suggested, Kubernetes reschedules pods in the other node of the same AZ while BOSH is performing the upgrade.. For information about configuring PVs in Enterprise PKS, see Configuring and Using PersistentVolumes.. For information about the supported storage topologies for Enterprise PKS on vSphere, see PersistentVolume Storage Options on vSphere.. ...

... is a condition in which the foreskin of the penis cannot stretch to allow it to be pulled back past the glans.[3] A balloon-like swelling under the foreskin may occur with urination.[3] In teenagers and adults, it may result in pain during an erection, but is otherwise not painful.[3] Those affected are at greater risk of inflammation of the glans, known as balanitis, and other complications.[3] In young children, it is normal not to be able to pull back the foreskin at all.[4] Over 90% of cases resolve by the age of seven, although full retraction is still prevented by preputial adhesions in over half at this age.[4][5] 99% of cases resolve by age 16.[5] Occasionally, phimosis may be caused by an underlying condition such as scarring due to balanitis or balanitis xerotica obliterans.[5] This can typically be diagnosed by seeing scarring of the opening of the foreskin.[5] Typically, it resolves without treatment by the age of three.[4] Efforts to pull back the foreskin during the early ...
It can also be caused by a retroperitoneal lymph node dissection for testicular cancer if nerve pathways to the bladder sphincter are damaged, with the resulting retrograde ejaculation being either temporary or permanent. Modern nerve-sparing techniques seek to reduce this risk; however, it may also occur as the result of Green Light Laser prostate surgery. Surgery on the bladder neck accounted for about ten percent of the cases of retrograde ejaculation or anejaculation reported in a literature review.[4] Retrograde ejaculation is a common side effect of medications, such as tamsulosin,[5] that are used to relax the muscles of the urinary tract, treating conditions such as benign prostatic hyperplasia. By relaxing the bladder sphincter muscle, the likelihood of retrograde ejaculation is increased. The medications that mostly cause it are antidepressant and antipsychotic medication, as well as NRIs such as atomoxetine; patients experiencing this phenomenon tend to quit the medications.[6][7] ...
Boreoeutherian land mammals, the large group of mammals that includes humans, have externalized testes.[32] Their testes function best at temperatures lower than their core body temperature. Their testes are located outside of the body, suspended by the spermatic cord within the scrotum.. There are several hypotheses why most boreotherian mammals have external testes which operate best at a temperature that is slightly less than the core body temperature, e.g. that it is stuck with enzymes evolved in a colder temperature due to external testes evolving for different reasons, that the lower temperature of the testes simply is more efficient for sperm production.. 1) More efficient. The classic hypothesis is that cooler temperature of the testes allows for more efficient fertile spermatogenesis. In other words, there are no possible enzymes operating at normal core body temperature that are as efficient as the ones evolved, at least none appearing in our evolution so far.. The early mammals had ...
In both the acute and chronic forms, antibiotics are used if an infection is suspected. The treatment of choice is often azithromycin and cefixime to cover both gonorrhoeae and chlamydia. Fluoroquinolones are no longer recommended due to widespread resistance of gonorrhoeae to this class.[7] Doxycycline may be used as an alternative to azithromycin. In chronic epididymitis, a four- to six-week course of antibiotics may be prescribed to ensure the complete eradication of any possible bacterial cause, especially the various chlamydiae. For cases caused by enteric organisms (such as E. coli), ofloxacin or levofloxacin are recommended.[7] In children, fluoroquinolones and doxycycline are best avoided. Since bacteria that cause urinary tract infections are often the cause of epididymitis in children, co-trimoxazole or suited penicillins (for example, cephalexin) can be used. Household remedies such as elevation of the scrotum and cold compresses applied regularly to the scrotum may relieve the pain ...
A certain degree of curvature of the penis is considered normal, as many men are born with this benign condition, commonly referred to as congenital curvature. The disease may cause pain; hardened, big, cord-like lesions (scar tissue known as "plaques"); or abnormal curvature of the penis when erect due to chronic inflammation of the tunica albuginea (CITA).[citation needed] Although the popular conception of Peyronie's disease is that it always involves curvature of the penis, the scar tissue sometimes causes divots or indentations rather than curvature. The condition may also make sexual intercourse painful and/or difficult, though it is unclear whether some men report satisfactory or unsatisfactory intercourse in spite of the disorder.[citation needed] It can affect men of any race and age. The disorder is confined to the penis, although a substantial number of men with Peyronie's exhibit concurrent connective tissue disorders in the hand, and to a lesser degree, in the feet. About 30 percent ...
Most experts consider androgens (testosterone and related hormones) to play a permissive role in the development of BPH. This means that androgens must be present for BPH to occur, but do not necessarily directly cause the condition. This is supported by evidence suggesting that castrated boys do not develop BPH when they age. In an unusual study of 26 eunuchs from the palace of the Qing dynasty still living in Beijing in 1960, the prostate could not be felt in 81% of the studied eunuchs.[14] The average time since castration was 54 years (range, 41-65 years). On the other hand, some studies suggest that administering exogenous testosterone is not associated with a significant increase in the risk of BPH symptoms, so the role of testosterone in prostate cancer and BPH is still unclear. Further randomized controlled trials with more participants are needed to quantify any risk of giving exogenous testosterone.[15] Dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a metabolite of testosterone, is a critical mediator of ...
Prostate cancer is classified as an adenocarcinoma, or glandular cancer, that begins when normal semen-secreting prostate gland cells mutate into cancer cells. The region of prostate gland where the adenocarcinoma is most common is the peripheral zone. Initially, small clumps of cancer cells remain confined to otherwise normal prostate glands, a condition known as carcinoma in situ or prostatic intraepithelial neoplasia (PIN). Although there is no proof that PIN is a cancer precursor, it is closely associated with cancer. Over time, these cancer cells begin to multiply and spread to the surrounding prostate tissue (the stroma) forming a tumor. Eventually, the tumor may grow large enough to invade nearby organs such as the seminal vesicles or the rectum, or the tumor cells may develop the ability to travel in the bloodstream and lymphatic system. Prostate cancer is considered a malignant tumor because it is a mass of cells that can invade other area of the body. This invasion of other organs is ...
