Infertility

Sperm Quality as a Prognosticator in Intrauterine Insemination-treated Sub-Fertile Saudi Patients

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.245
Synopsis: 
The study was designed to determine the most effective sperm parameter(s) that would help in prescribing intrauterine insemination (IUI) for infertility treatment, within a Saudi infertility patient sample for the first time. We concluded that the post-sperm preparation total motile sperms count (TMSC) is the main determining component among sperm quality parameters, and that the TMSC of at least ten million men are the recommended numbers for the IUI success.

ABSTRACT

Background: Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) stays as the most feasible infertility treatment, yet its success indications need further refinement.

Objective: This study aims to determine the most effective sperm parameters that help in prescribing IUI for infertility treatment within a Saudi population sample.

The Application of Chromosome Abnormality Chip Detection in Male Infertility

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2013.213
Synopsis: 
Chromosome abnormality chip detection system provides a sensitive, economic and high-throughput method for detecting the deletion or amplification of genomic DNA sequences of infertile patients.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To discuss the application of microarray technology in the diagnosis of male infertility.

Methods: Sixteen loci, including a sex-determining region on the Y chromosome, were investigated by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) in infertile male patients. Chromosome abnormality chip with 180 000 probes was used to detect small deletion, small amplification and loss of heterozygosity.
