Antisperm antibodies.

Author information

Significant progress is being made in the study and treatment of infertility due to antisperm antibodies. Increased knowledge of the antigenicity of sperm and oocytes and continued study of the immunology of the male and female reproductive tracts should yield a greater understanding of the mechanisms of immunologic infertility. Such an understanding will permit novel and specific therapy for the infertile couple. Until such research is forthcoming, continued clinical research is imperative to increase the efficiency and success of treatment.
