Jaime Gosálvez, Pedro Caballero, Carmen López-Fernández, Leonor Ortega, José Andrés Guijarro, José Luís Fernández, Stephen D Johnston, Rocío Nuñez-Calonge
2013 Asian Journal of Andrology  
This suggests that a certain level of DNA damage that is not detectable using current technologies could be impacting on the relative success of assisted reproductive technology (ART) procedures.  ...  While increased levels of SDF negatively impact reproductive outcome, we have shown that a reduction in SDF following sperm selection using ICSI with proven donor oocytes is not mandatory for achieving  ...  effectiveness, effectiveness at specified levels of false positives rates and optimal diagnostic ability.  ...
