    An autoantibody is an antibody (a type of protein) produced by the immune system that is directed against one or more of the individual's own proteins. Many autoimmune diseases, (notably lupus erythematosus), are caused by such autoantibodies.. Clinically, antibodies against sperm are found in 3% to 12% of men who undergo evaluation for infertility and can be found in the serum, seminal plasma. Objective: To critically review the English-language literature and describe the current diagnosis, prevalence, etiology, and treatment of antisperm antibodies (ASA).Design: A comprehensive literature search of the English-language literature published between and December was performed on MEDLINE. Articles were also located via bibliographies of published (s): Data were Cited by:

    Sperm agglutination is the adherence of motile spermatozoa to each other (see Fig. 1). The formation of conglomerates (compounds) of cells impairs their ability to progressive movement, which may cause a decrease in fertility. This practical manual on sperm analysis presents the diagnostic and therapeutic procedures that are used in andrology laboratories to analyze and assess male infertility. Diagnostic areas include: semen analysis and the biochemical, immunological and microbiological examination of human semen and spermatozoa; computer-aided sperm motility analysis; sperm ultrastructure; and assessment of sperm.

    However, in the context of otherwise unexplained infertility the current treatment of choice is ICSI (where a single sperm is injected into a single egg). Sperm antibodies in female sexual secretions may also trap spermatozoa and prevent them from progressing through the genital tract. Most commonly, sperm antibodies are generated after vasectomy. Antibodies are large proteins which attach to sperm, and can interfere with motility or cover the head of the sperm, so as to interfere with the acrosome reaction.

Like the name says, antisperm antibodies fight happens when the immune system mistakenly targets sperm in a man’s Spermatozoa as an invader and damages or kills it. Antisperm antibodies aren Author: Camille Noe Pagán. BACKGROUND: Antisperm antibodies (ASA) in males cause the autoimmune disease 'immune infertility'.

The mechanism of ASA cause male infertility is Spermatozoa clear. Present studies have investigated the effect of ASA and their incidence in men with unexplained infertility, as well as to evaluate the correlation between the ASA and semen parameter Cited by: A spermatozoon (pronounced / ˌ s p ɜːr m æ t ə ˈ z oʊ ə n /, alternate spelling spermatozoön; plural spermatozoa; from Ancient Greek: σπέρμα ("seed") and Ancient Greek: ζῷον ("living being")) is a motile sperm cell, or moving form of the haploid cell that is the male gamete.A spermatozoon joins an ovum to form a zygote.

[Jack Cohen; W F Hendry; University of London. Institute of Urology.; University of. Antisperm Antibodies or immunity to sperm, whether in the male or female, is not an absolute cause of infertility. Sperm antibodies reduce fertility, but do not invariably prevent conception.

Rather, the effects are graduated; i.e., the larger the immunologic response, the less likely it is that a pregnancy will occur.

Deborah J. Anderson, Jeffrey Pudney, in Mucosal Immunology (Fourth Edition), Immune Responses to Sperm. Approximately 12% of male infertility patients have antisperm antibodies in serum and/or seminal plasma, and because such antibodies can inhibit various sperm functions such as motility and sperm–egg interaction in vitro, they are thought to be a cause of infertility (McLachlan, Urology-andrology Effect of different procedures of semen preparation on antibody-coated spermatozoa and immunological infertility Aucky Hinting, M.D.

But this is possible with a trauma to the vaginal musccoa during the intercourse or the deposition of sperm in the gastrointestinal tract by oral or anal intercourse.

because these antibodies can. Treatment of infertility caused by antisperm antibodies. Kremer J, Jager S, Kuiken J. Twenty infertile couples with antisperm antibodies in the male or in the female partner were scheduled for treatment.

In 15 couples the male and in 5 couples the female partner was the antisperm antibody by:   IgA antibodies to micro-organisms serve this function by trapping the micro-organisms.

In rare cases when a woman has produced IgA antibodies to spermatozoa or, more commonly, when spermatozoa entering the mucus are already covered with IgA, the result will be the same: trapping of the spermatozoa or impairment of by: Standard examination of human semen currently remains a main test for male fertility disorders.

The concentration (total sperm count) and motility of spermatozoa and the content of morphologically normal (typical) spermatozoa are thought to reflect the fertilization potential of the semen [].Although their values in fertile men are generally higher than in sterile ones, there is a substantial Author: Elizaveta E.

Bragina, Elena N. Bocharova. The analysis of this trial suggests that the failure of IUI in the treatment of male immunological infertility is imputable to antisperm antibodies when they involve all spermatozoa, regardless of. Human spermatozoa smears are used as the substrate for the detection of antibodies against spermatozoa antigens.

A BIOCHIP Mosaic combining the most important autoantigens from reproductive tissues (e.g. ovary, testis, placenta, uterus, spermatozoa) facilitates the diagnosis of autoimmune-associated fertility disorders. Immunological infertility is the presence, in one or both partners, of an antisperm immune reaction capable of interfering with fertility variables.

In about 8–10% of these couples the immunological phenomenon is on the male side, causing ‘male immunological infertility’ (1).Since the first demonstration that a significant number of infertile men show an autoimmunity to sperm.

Types. Antisperm antibodies (ASA) are immunoglobulins of IgG, IgA, and/or IgM, which are directed against sperm can be detected in ejaculate, cervical mucus, follicular fluid, and blood serum.

Prevalence. ASA can arise whenever sperm encounter the immune system. ASA occur in women and men, including women or men who receive anal sex from men or who perform oral sex on men.This volume, and its companion volume on the oocyte, provide a wide-ranging analysis of the gametes and their reproductive role in humans.

The authors give a detailed account of the spermatozoon that includes particularly helpful information on male infertility and its treatment.

The book starts with an evolutionary perspective before focusing on the molecular and cellular biology of the sperm.Sperm of humans, non-human primates, and other mammalian subjects is considered to be antigenic. The effect of changes in autoimmunity on reproductive cells such as spermatozoa and oocytes play a critical but indistinct role in fertility.

Antisperm antibodies (ASAs) are invariably present in both females and males. However, the degree of ASA occurrence may vary according to individual and : Vickram A. S., Kuldeep Dhama, Sandip Chakraborty, Hari Abdul Samad, Shyma K. Latheef, Khan Sharun, S.
