High impact information on Spermatocele

  • PEDF antibodies neutralized or markedly decreased the stromal stimulating effect of spermatocele fluid and PEDF [1].
  • Materials and Methods: Concentrations of soluble TNF receptors (p55-sTNF-R and p75-sTNF-R) were measured by ELISA in human sera, seminal fluids, prostatic fluid and fluid obtained from an epididymal spermatocele [2].
  • Ethanolamine oleate sclerotherapy for hydroceles and spermatoceles: a survey of 158 patients with ultrasound followup [3].
  • We studied patients with bilateral congenitally absent vasa deferentia to see if relief of obstruction by implantation of an alloplastic spermatocele also benefits sperm motility in such patients [4].
  • Both IL-6 and IL-8 concentrations in the spermatocele group were higher than in the epididymal cyst group (P < 0.0001) [5].

Anatomical context of Spermatocele

  • The concentrations (mean+/- SEM, pg/mg protein) of IL-6, IL-8 and TNF-alpha were 13.52 +/- 1.40, 22.20 +/- 2.43, 3.51 +/- 1.43 in spermatocele fluids and 5.76 +/- 0.48, 11.57 +/- 1.89, 2.53 +/- 0.41 in epididymal cyst fluids [5].
