  • Identification of protein changes in human spermatozoa throughout the cryopreservation process

    Identification of protein changes in human spermatozoa throughout the cryopreservation process

    Heat map of significant changes in protein levels in the spermatozoa before and after cryopreservation. (A) Cryopreservation and after-thawing incubation at approximately 0 °C (C2 vs. C3). (B) Cryopreservation and after-thawing incubation at 23 °C (C2 vs. C4). Samples were clustered within thawing each method using McQuitty′s criteria and the Euclidean distance method was used to calculate dissimilarity. Samples with the same letter represent aliquots taken from the same ejaculate but processed differently.

  • Diagnostic value of qualitative and strain ratio elastography in the differential diagnosis of non-palpable testicular lesions

    Diagnostic value of qualitative and strain ratio elastography in the differential diagnosis of non‐palpable testicular lesions

    Baseline US and qualitative elastography of hard lesions (ES3). Panel (A–F) show six markedly hypoechoic lesions, scored ES3 at elastography (hard lesions) that resulted Leydig cell tumor (A–C) and seminomas (D–F) at definitive histology.

  • Teratozoospermia and asthenozoospermia are associated with specific epigenetic signatures

    Teratozoospermia and asthenozoospermia are associated with specific epigenetic signatures

    (A) Individual CpGs that are significantly associated with reduced sperm viability are displayed in chronological order based on general position on the each respective chromosome. The dashed red line represents the threshold of significance based on Bonferroni correction. Individual chromosomes are delineated by changes in color. Volcano plots represent the changes to individual CpG methylation associated with low motility (B) and low viability (C). The red line indicates the threshold of significance.

  • Endocrine disrupters: we need research, biomonitoring and action

    Endocrine disrupters: we need research, biomonitoring and action

    Trends in incidence rates of cancer in several endocrine organs, Denmark 1944–2009. Left panel: Age-standardised rates (ASR, World) for females aged 0–85+. Right panel: ASR (World) for males aged 0–85+. Note that nation-wide mammography screening was implemented in Denmark in 2008 with some regions starting a bit earlier.

  • Melatonin intake since weaning ameliorates steroidogenic function and sperm motility of streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats

    Melatonin intake since weaning ameliorates steroidogenic function and sperm motility of streptozotocin‐induced diabetic rats

    Histopathological alterations in testis and epididymis after 8 weeks of diabetes. Photomicrographs of testis (a–d) and epididymis (e–h) from untreated diabetic (a, b–d, h), and melatonin-treated diabetic (c) rats were stained by PAS method (a–d), H&E staining (e–f), and Tushmann's Blue (g, h). (a) Note the severe depletion of germinal epithelium resulting in Sertoli cells Only tubules (SO), and atrophy of Leydig cells, and increased macrophage numbers (magenta cytoplasm cells) indicated in (a’). (b) Presence of large vacuoles in cytoplasm of Sertoli cells (V). (c) Presence of apoptotic bodies in the seminiferous epithelium (dark circles). (d). Disorganization of the seminiferous epithelium and neutrophils detected in blood vessels (d’). (e) Presence of abnormal cells (dark arrows, e’) and apoptotic spermatids (red arrow, e″) within the duct lumen in initial segment of epididymis. (f) Persistence of frequent unusual cells inside the lumen (dark arrows, f′) of epididymis duct in the cauda segment. (h) Granuloma in the connection with the Vas Deferens (g). (g) Detailed composition of the granuloma, with distortion of the epithelium line, sperm agglutination, and inflammatory infiltrate (lu = luminal duct; ep = epithelium; mus = muscular layer; col = stromal collagenous material; g = granuloma). Magnifications: 10× (a–d), 20× (e–g), 3× (h).

Special Issue on Endocrine Disruption and Reproductive Health - July 2016

Andrology's July 2016 issue is devoted to the timely topic of endocrine disruption, which is suspected to be one of the factors responsible for the reported rise in the incidence of male reproductive disorders. The content of this special issue highlights some of the pertinent topics in the field that are of relevance for andrologists and researchers interested in reproductive biology and endocrinology, including female reproduction and neuroendocrinology.
