Advanced Search Abstract The aim of the study was to conduct a structured review of the literature published on the use of normal sperm morphology, as an indicator of male fertility potential in the in-vitro fertilization IVF situation, and to establish the universal predictive value of this semen parameter. The inclusion of an accurately evaluated normal sperm morphology count as an integral part of the standard semen analysis makes this analysis still the most cost-effective means of evaluating the male factor. Pain-related behavior and brain activation in cynomolgus macaques with naturally occurring endometriosis.
