  The New York Times reported recently that one sperm donor is the father of 150 children. According to the report, the son of a donor has found that he has 150 half-siblings who came from the same donor. Experts are concerned that this trend could result in accidental incest between children fathered by the same donor. “My daughter knows her donor´s number for this very reason,” the mother of a teenager conceived via sperm donation in California told The New...

Scientists have discovered exactly how a human egg captures incoming sperm to begin the process of fertilization. The new study could help future couples who suffer from infertility. The international team of researchers found that a specific kind of sugar molecule makes the outer coat of the egg "sticky," which helps the egg and sperm bind together. "The details we've discovered here fill in a huge gap in our knowledge of fertility and we hope they will ultimately help many of those...

Semen quality may be an indicator of a man's overall health. (PRWEB) August 10, 2011 Is poor semen quality a new longevity risk factor? Normally, a doctor looking for a snapshot of a patient's health will ask about smoking, drinking, diet, and exercise and then measure cholesterol, blood pressure, blood sugar, and weight or waist size. These facts and numbers already enable doctors to predict long-term health and longevity, but scientists are always looking for additional measurements that...

Scientists at the University of Liverpool have found that male fruitflies experience a type of 'paranoia' in the presence of another male, which doubles the length of time they mate with a female, despite the female of the species only ever mating with one male. Females in many species of animal have multiple mates and males have evolved particular reproductive characteristics to ensure their sperm are successful when in competition with the sperm of other males. Adaptations include physical...

Fertility scientists have created artificial sperm using stem cells for the first time in a breakthrough that could lead to new treatments for infertile men. In the revolutionary experiments, the Japanese researchers at Kyoto University have made sperm from scratch, and, for the first time, successfully used it to produce healthy baby mice. The landmark research paves the way for new drugs for infertility -- a condition that affects one in six couples. When the sperm cells were transplanted...

Research could lead to techniques to improve fertilization in humans In new research that could have implications for improving fertilization in humans and other mammals, life scientists studied interactions between individual sperm and eggs in red abalone, an ocean-dwelling snail, and made precise chemical measurements and physical models of these interactions. They are the first scientists to do so. By simulating the natural habitat of the abalone in the laboratory, the scientists were able...

The loss of a protein that coats sperm may explain a significant proportion of infertility in men worldwide, according to a study by an international team of researchers led by UC Davis. The research could open up new ways to screen and treat couples for infertility. A paper describing the work is published July 20 in the journal Science Translational Medicine. The protein DEFB126 acts as a "Klingon cloaking device," allowing sperm to swim through mucus and avoid the immune system in order to...

The male prostate gland acts as an exocrine gland in the male reproductive system. It is a firm, partly muscular, chestnut sized gland near the neck of the urethra in males. Formation and Orientation The prostate is usually formed within the ninth week of the embryonic stage in reproductive development. The prostate can be separated into either “lobes” or “zones”. When looking at a prostate divided into zones, there are four distinct regions. The first zone is the Peripheral...
