Detection of sperm antibodies on unwashed spermatozoa with the immunobead test: A comparison of results with the routine method and seminal plasma TAT titers and SCMC test
This study investigated whether the immunobead test (IBT) could, for the purposes of simplicity and saving time, be applied directly on an unwashed semen sample instead of washed spermatozoa. These two methods were performed ...
Effect of lead and organophosphates on sperm morphology
Lead and organophosphates can exert a toxic action on the male reproductive function. A cross-sectional study involving 40 men was undertaken to investigate the effect of these toxins on sperm morphology. Based on the ...
Effect of ethanol on semen characteristics of vervet monkeys
The effect of alcohol on spermatogenesis and sperm morphology has been of interest to many andrologists. Six adult male vervet monkeys were utilized to evaluate the effect of ethanol on semen quality. A decrease of the ...
Comparison of various physiologic and psychomotor parameters in patients sedated with intravenous lorazepam, diazepam, or midazolam during oral surgery
Intravenously administered lorazepam (0.05 mg/kg), diazepam (0.25 mg/kg), and midazolam (0.1 mg/kg) were compared for sedation during oral surgery under local anesthesia. Sixty patients were randomly allocated into three ...

The effect of medial forebrain bundle lesion on thyrotropin secretion in the rat
The medial forebrain bundle (MFB) was partially lesioned with 6-hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA) in order to investigate the effect of deficient central noradrenergic regulation on thyrotropin (TSH) secretion in the rat. 6-OHDA ...
