Live Q&A ‘New Antioxidants in Male Fertility: Efficacy and Novel Molecular Changes‘ with Dr. Ashok Ararwal and FairHaven Health

New Antioxidants in Male Fertility: Efficacy and Novel Molecular Changes
Presented by Dr. Ashok Agarwal, Cleveland Clinic

Infertility affects approximately 15% of couples globally, with 2.5%–12% believed to be solely due to male factors. The speaker is going to discuss the main causes of infertility and the factors responsible for the rise in male infertility. Despite advances in the field of male reproductive health, idiopathic male infertility remains a challenging condition to diagnose and manage. Increasing evidence suggests that oxidative stress (OS) plays an independent role in the etiology of male infertility, with 30% to 80% of infertile men having elevated seminal reactive oxygen species levels.

Dr. Ashok Agarwal will explain how OS can negatively affect fertility via a number of pathways, including interference with capacitation and possible damage to sperm membrane and DNA, which may impair the sperm’s potential to fertilize an egg and develop into a healthy embryo. He will discuss how the use of antioxidants to reduce oxidative stress across a range of etiologies and risk factors of male infertility is gaining much attention. The speaker will share results of two recent clinical trials using antioxidants, including one which examined the effect of antioxidant treatment on the sperm proteome of idiopathic
infertile men.
