Abstract

The presence of anti-sperm antibodies (ASA) in semen or blood serum may impair sperm function leading to immunol. infertility. Hence, the clin. significance of anti-sperm antibody (ASA) anal. is gaining momentum. ASA screening was done on 64 patients registered for infertility treatment. Out of 64 patients, 38 (59.3 %) members showed pos. response for ASA in their blood serum. Among them max. no. of patients belong to age group between 31-40 years. In this study ejaculatory dysfunction showed 100% pos. response for ASA followed by asthenospermic condition (83.33%). Response of oligospermic (57.14%) and azoospermic (47.82%) were in accordance with the other studies. Poor semen parameters were obsd., esp. the alk. nature of semen, increased liquefaction time and change in the color which confirms the infection in the patient. More than 50% of infertile patient of all etiologies showed pos. results for the presence of ASA, and the prevalence probably increases with increase in patient's age.
