Evaluation of Nuclear DNA Damage in Human Spermatozoa in Men Opting for Assisted Reproduction (Deoxyribonucleic Acid) (Clinical Report)

Evaluation of Nuclear DNA Damage in Human Spermatozoa in Men Opting for Assisted Reproduction (Deoxyribonucleic Acid) (Clinical Report)

Diagnosis of sperm DNA integrity of semen sample is important for consistently high reproductive efficiency. The conventional parameters of semen analysis take into account morphology, motility, and concentration of spermatozoa in the sample, which are insufficient for evaluation of reproductive potential. Current studies have implicated abnormal organization of genomic material in sperms as a probable […]

Influence of Folic Acid on Plasma Homocysteine Levels & Arterial Endothelial Function in Patients with Unstable Angina (Report)

Influence of Folic Acid on Plasma Homocysteine Levels & Arterial Endothelial Function in Patients with Unstable Angina (Report)

Background & objectives: High plasma homocysteine (Hcy) levels are known to be associated with coronary artery disease, but the precise level associated with an increased risk is yet controversial. Whether the beneficial effects of folic acid on arterial endothelial function persist over longer periods is not known. This study was carried out to assess whether […]

Diminished Need for Folate Measurements Among Indigent Populations in the Post Folic Acid Supplementation Era (Clinical Report)

Diminished Need for Folate Measurements Among Indigent Populations in the Post Folic Acid Supplementation Era (Clinical Report)
