Concentration of Antibacterials in Human Seminal Plasma
Little is known how drugs enter the male genital glands. Only a few studies in humans have been reported regarding the ability of antibiotics to enter the prostate gland and the seminal vesicles (Armstrong et al 1968, Mann 1972, Symes et al 1974). The constituents of semen come from 3 organs. The testes produce spermatozoa, the seminal vesicles excrete fructose and the prostate excretes acid phosphatase, citric acid and zinc. The first part of the ejaculate consists almost exclusively of prostatic fluid, and the last part fluid from the seminal vesicles (Lundqvist 1949).
