Journal:

 

We analyzed the AZFc region of the Y-chromosome for complete (b2/b4) and distinct partial deletions (gr/gr, b1/b3, b2/b3) in 822 infertile and 225 proven fertile men. We observed complete AZFc deletions in 0.97% and partial deletions in 6.20% of the cases. Among partial deletions, ...

The role of Y chromosome deletions in male infertility.
 

Author(s): K Ma, C Mallidis, S Bhasin

Journal: Eur. J. Endocrinol.. 2000 May;142(5):418-30.

 

Male infertility affects approximately 2-7% of couples around the world. Over one in ten men who seek help at infertility clinics are diagnosed as severely oligospermic or azoospermic. Recent extensive molecular studies have revealed that deletions in the azoospermia factor region ...
