The severe oligospermia and lukocytospermia is diagnosed among 25–40% of the infertile patients despite the absence of any clinical manifestation of the inflammatory process. The white blood cells are the main source of the free oxidative radicals, which can injure the cell membranes and the sperm DNA integrity influencing the reproductive potential of the male gametes.
The aim of study
was to assess the influence of the anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-oxidative treatment combined with the dietary supplementation on sperm parameters in the patients with severe oligospermia and lukocytospermia.
Materials and methods
. 100 patients with a severe oligospermia and leukocytospermia were qualified into the study. The anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-oxidative treatment combined with dietary supplementation was applied for 90 days. The sperm analysis was performed before and after the treatment.
Results
. The mean volume of sperm samples and spermatozoa concentration were comparable before and after treatment. The leukocyte concentration was significantly lower after the therapy. There were significantly more spermatozoa in the fast and slow forward movement, less spermatozoa without movements and comparable concentration in spermatozoa in slow undirected movement after applied treatment.
Conclusions
. The present study demonstrated that the anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-oxidative treatment combined with dietary supplementation in the patients with severe oligospermia and lukocytospermia improves the sperm movement parameters and reduces the inflammatory response. Therefore, it might be beneficial to patient suffering from the infertility.

Key words: leukocytospermia, oligospermia, sperm movement parameters
