Semen samples were incubated at 37 degrees C and observed 0.5,1,2,4, and 6 hours after addition of the respective compounds. Semen quality was determined by estimating the percentage of active spermatozoa, by estimating sperm motility, and by counting the number of viable sperm Cited by: 26.

Addition of theophylline improved motility in 64 out of 65 patients (98.5%) involved in this study (one patient did not have motile sperm irrespective of the treatment with theophylline). Thus, time for identification and isolation of motile testicular sperm after thawing was Cited by: 25. Preventing the reduction of sperm motility is one of the most attractive interests in freezing field. Generally, a methylxanthine derivative promotes sperm motility and has been routinely used to examine the vitality of immotile sperms. In the present study, we have analyzed the impacts of cryopreservation and theophylline on sperm motility.Author: Elaheh Gorji, Mir Mehrdad Farsi, Soraya Khafri, Hamid Shafi.
Dec 22, 2005 · Computer-assisted motility analysis (CASA) was used to evaluate the effect of cryopreservation and theophylline treatment on sperm motility of lake sturgeon (Acipenser fulvescens).Motility was recorded at 0 and 5 min postactivation.The effect of cryopreservation on sperm acrosin-like activity was also measured. Cryopreservation led to a decline in the percentage of motile . USE OF THEOPHYLLINE TO ENHANCE SPERM FUNCTION K. R. LOUGHLIN and A. AGARWAL Poor sperm motility is an important factor in male infertility. Preliminary results in our laboratory on a group of 19 men (10 suspected infertile men and 9 fertile donors) showed stimulation of sperm fertiliz-.
