A PRELIMINARY ASSESSMENT OF THE EFFECTS OF REPRODUCTIVE SEASONALITY ON SEMINAL PLASMA CHARACTERISTICS IN NORTH AMERICAN BISON (BISON BISON).

The two subspecies of the North American bison, plains ( Bison bison bison) and wood ( Bison bison athabascae) bison, are seasonal breeders. The objective of this study was to conduct a preliminary in...

Proteomic characterization of seminal plasma from alternative reproductive tactics of Chinook salmon (Oncorhynchus tswatchysha).

Chinook salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha) are external fertilizers that display sneak-guard alternative reproductive tactics. The larger hooknose males dominate mating positions, while the smaller jac...

In vitro fertilization outcomes after ablation of endometriomas using plasma energy: A retrospective case-control study.

Ovarian endometrioma ablation using plasma energy appears to be a valuable alternative to cystectomy, because it could spare underlying ovarian parenchyma resulting in high spontaneous and overall pre...

Presence of PSA antibodies in seminal plasma of infertile men.

Immunoinfertility due to antisperm antibodies and semen hyperviscosity are among major causes of male infertility. Although the modulation of prostate-specific antigen (PSA) has been investigated in p...

Dropout rates in couples undergoing in vitro fertilization and intrauterine insemination.

To compare dropout rates in couples undergoing conventional in vitro fertilization with single embryo transfer (IVF-SET), in vitro fertilization in a modified natural cycle (IVF-MNC) or intrauterine i...

Effects of Seminal Plasma on Pregnancy Rate With IVF

All couples planned for IVF will be asked to participate. After information and received informed consent they will be randomized into two groups. At the time for ovum pick up during an I...

Androgens for Poor Responders in In Vitro Fertilization

it has been shown that androgens in non human primates may favour follicular growth in the ovaries when animals are treated with gonadotropins which are the hormones used in patients recei...

In Vitro Maturation With in Vitro Fertilization (IVF) Compared to Mild in Vitro Fertilization

Methods of infertility treatment may involve in vitro fertilization or IVF. Though effective, IVF is complex and expensive. Methods using no gonadotropin hormone stimulation of the ovaries...

VIH-1 Colo-rectal Transmission by Infected Semen Cells and Effects of Seminal Plasma ex Vivo (CellspermVIH)

The objective of our project is to determine the infected seminal cell types and the molecular mechanisms involved in HIV cell-associated transmission in the colo-rectal mucosa, using cond...

Effect of Seminal Fluid on the Colon Wall; Implications for HIV Transmission

This research is being done to learn how seminal fluid affects the lining of the colon, and whether this might make it easier for HIV to get into the body and cause infection.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Proteins found in SEMEN. Major seminal plasma proteins are secretory proteins from the male sex accessory glands, such as the SEMINAL VESICLES and the PROSTATE. They include the seminal vesicle-specific antigen, an ejaculate clotting protein; and the PROSTATE-SPECIFIC ANTIGEN, a protease and an esterase.

An assisted reproductive technique that includes the direct handling and manipulation of oocytes and sperm to achieve fertilization in vitro.

The transfer of mammalian embryos from an in vivo or in vitro environment to a suitable host to improve pregnancy or gestational outcome in human or animal. In human fertility treatment programs, preimplantation embryos ranging from the 4-cell stage to the blastocyst stage are transferred to the uterine cavity between 3-5 days after FERTILIZATION IN VITRO.

The secretory proteins of the seminal vesicles are proteins and enzymes that are important in the rapid clotting of the ejaculate. The major clotting protein is seminal vesicle-specific antigen. Many of these seminal vesicle proteins are under androgen regulation, and are substrates for the prostatic enzymes, such as the PROSTATE-SPECIFIC ANTIGEN, a protease and an esterase.

Experimentation on, or using the organs or tissues from, a human or other mammalian conceptus during the prenatal stage of development that is characterized by rapid morphological changes and the differentiation of basic structures. In humans, this includes the period from the time of fertilization to the end of the eighth week after fertilization.
