Abstract

In this study, the influence of myoinositol (MYO) as an antioxidant on the inhibition of the negative impacts of cryopreservation on sperm quality in men with Asthenos- permia was investigated. In this prospective study, each semen sample from 25 cases was separated into three groups: Fresh, Control (with freezing medium), Myoinositol (2 mg/ml). According to the World Health Organization criteria (WHO) (2010), total motility, progressive sperm motility, viability, normal morphology, and DNA integrity were assessed. In addition, the hypo-osmotic swelling (HOS) test and mitochondrial membrane potential (MMP) were used. Total antioxidant capacity (TAC), malondialde- hyde (MDA), and antioxidant enzyme activity were determined by the ELISA method. In contrast to the fresh samples, lipid peroxidation, DNA integrity damage, DNA frag- mentation, HOST, and MMP had significant enhancement in the control samples. Sperm quality was significantly decreased (p < 0.05). Mean percentage viability, normal morphology, total motility, progressive motility, and DNA integrity were significantly enhanced in the MYO group in comparison to the control group (p < 0.05). The MDA and TAC levels and DNA damage in the MYO group were significantly lower compared to the control group (p < 0.05). The findings confirm that sperm quality in patients with Asthenospermia is improved by the administration of 2 mg/ml of myoinositol together with the freezing medium after sperm cryopreservation.
