Motility Update

  • Jean-Luc Gatti
Part of the Serono Symposia USA book series (SERONOSYMP)


Although evolution has put strong selective pressure on ensuring that individuals have healthy, functioning gametes, at least 15% of human couples have fertility problems. The infertility can be due to either partner, but fécondation failure in the male partner occurs in one third of the cases ( 1 ). A large number of different causes can lead to this male infertility, but the most striking ones are those that affect the mobility of the sperm because the main function of this cell is to deliver the male nuclear package to the ovocyte. These cases of infertility can be treated by subzonal insemination or intracytoplasmic injection (2-4), with the risk that the genetic defect will be transmitted to the offspring.
