Andrology, the technology of the body structure, pathology and molecular biology of male copy, is a comparatively new area of expertise that has develop into more and more vital with the arrival of recent assisted reproductive ideas (ART). The Atlas of medical Andrology describes either common and irregular reproductive body structure, and summarizes fresh learn within the fields of endocrinology, immunoandrology, molecular andrology, and paintings. concentrating on the leading edge of modern wisdom and advances in medical andrology, it comprises the newest scientific examine findings and makes them obtainable to clinicians who want this crucial details for the best software of assisted reproductive suggestions

Little is known about the frequency of chromosome 15 aneuploidy in these infertile men. , 2003). qxd 3/17/2005 7:26 PM Page 45 4 Capacitation, acrosome reaction and fertilization After ejaculation, sperm are transported through the female reproductive tract. 3). Sperm undergo the acrosome reaction before fertilization in order to penetrate the zona pellucida (ZP) of the oocyte. This process occurs following binding to the ZP only if the sperm have previously undergone a maturation process called capacitation.
