Effect of acute hypobaric hypoxia on spermatogenesis and lactate concentration in testicular tissue of male albino rats



Parameters of spermatogenesis in male albino rats was studied after experimental acute hypobaric hypoxia. The number of spermatogenic epithelial cells, Sertoli cells, and Leydig cells in testicular tissue significantly decreased in the posthypoxic period. Single exposure to hypoxia led to significant changes in lactate concentration in the testicular tissue. Cell composition of the testicles did not return to normal by the 60th day after treatment.
