From the Publisher

State-of-the-art, illustrated clinical reference volume on the diagnosis and treatment of male subfertility using assisted reproduction technologies (ART) such as in vitro fertilization (IVF), gamete intrafallopian tube transfer (GIFT), and intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI). The book is in five sections containing 19 original new chapters by leading experts writing on -Evidence-Based Medicine+ as a means of studying ART, quality control for andrology laboratories, recent developments and new insights in ICSI, and cytokines and growth factors, with special attention to testicular physiology and sperm function. Section V deals with the reliability of semen parameters, maturation arrest in spermatogenesis, and the cell biology of the fertilizing spermatozoon. Includes bibliographic references and index.

From Booknews

Women no longer bear the sole onus for infertility. Twenty-one papers provide insights into the burgeoning study of andrology, especially the diagnosis and treatment of male subfertility. Section I treats assisted reproduction procedures and guidelines for semen parameters in the context of the value and pitfalls of evidence-based medicine. Quality control for andrology laboratories occupies Section II. Section III focuses on recent developments in intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI). The discussion next shifts to cytokines and growth factors in human reproduction, emphasizing testicular physiology and sperm function. The final section summarizes current knowledge on the reliability of semen parameters, maturation arrest in spermatogenesis, and the cell biology of the fertilizing spermatozoon.
