AIH for Cases of Spermatozoa Antibodies and Oligozoospermia

  • M. McD. Usherwood


Because of poor results in treating subfertile men, a Clinic was set up in 1972 at the London Hospital to provide practical therapies. Included in the group was a gynaecologist and a urologist, and this review is compiled as a result of their experiences. Particular interest has been payed to patients with sperm antibodies and oligozoospermia.
