The total effective rate of 83.5% and the pregnancy rate of the patient's wife of 78.8% in the treatment group, and corresponding figures were 54.2% and 43.4% in the control group, with a very significant difference between the two groups (P < 0.01); and reproductive hormones improved significantly after treatment in the two groups (P < 0.01); after treatment, superoxide dismulase (SOD) activity and Zn content in semen were elevated and cadmium level decreased significantly in the treatment group (P < 0.05).
