Abstract

"Ejaculates from men without known causes for male subfertility and asymptomatic for genital tract inflammation showed infiltration of macrophages, and their activation state (HLA-DR(+)) was negatively correlated with semen parameters and positively correlated with sperm DNA damage. An activation of the immune system is thus detectable in idiopathic oligoasthenoteratozoospermia of unknown origin.. . "
