To report the outcome of intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) cycles using fresh or cryopreserved-thawed testicular spermatozoa of men with Klinefelter syndrome (KS). Medical records of 83 azoospermic men with KS who underwent testicular sperm extraction (TESE) were reviewed. The clinical parameters for predicting sperm retrieval and fertilization, implantation, pregnancy and live birth rates of ICSI cycles in these patients were evaluated. A total of 88 TESE procedures were performed with sperm retrieval rates of 39.8% per cycle (35/88) and 42.1% per patient (35/83). None of the studied clinical parameters were found to be informative in predicting successful sperm recovery. A total of 41 embryo transfer cycles were carried out using fresh testicular spermatozoa in 30, cryopreserved-thawed spermatozoa in 10 and cryopreserved-thawed embryo replacement in one. The fertilization and clinical pregnancy rates were comparable at 52.7% and 51.6% with fresh and 48.3% and 60% with cryopreserved-thawed testicular spermatozoa groups, respectively. Twenty-two clinical pregnancies were obtained, including 14 singletons, five twins, two triplets and one quadruplet and ended with the delivery of 13 singletons and six twins. In total, out ...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Hereditary Sensory Autonomic Neuropathy

Hereditary Sensory Autonomic Neuropathies are a group of inherited neurodegenerative disorders characterized clinically by loss of sensation and autonomic dysfunction. Here is the latest research on these neuropathies.

Evolution of Pluripotency

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Landau-Kleffner Syndrome

Landau Kleffner syndrome (LKS), also called infantile acquired aphasia, acquired epileptic aphasia, or aphasia with convulsive disorder, is a rare childhood neurological syndrome characterized by the sudden or gradual development of aphasia (the inability to understand or express language) and an abnormal electroencephalogram. Discover the latest research on LKS here.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.


Microbicides are products that can be applied to vaginal or rectal mucosal surfaces with the goal of preventing, or at least significantly reducing, the transmission of sexually transmitted infections. Here is the latest research on microbicides.

Regulation of Vocal-Motor Plasticity

Dopaminergic projections to the basal ganglia and nucleus accumbens shape the learning and plasticity of motivated behaviors across species including the regulation of vocal-motor plasticity and performance in songbirds. Discover the latest research on the regulation of vocal-motor plasticity here.
