Abstract

OBJECTIVES:

To assess the usefulness of Manix in the management of men with idiopathic oligospermia.

PATIENTS AND METHODS:

The study involved 55 infertile men with idiopathic oligospermia. Thirty-five patients were administered oral 600 mg of manix for 13 weeks and 20 were put on oral 1000 IU of vitamin E for 13 weeks. Semen analysis and the sex hormone profiles were done as baseline and then repeated at 3 and 6 months.

RESULTS:

There were statistically significant improvements in semen parameters in the patients on Manix . No improvement was noted in the other group on vit E. There was however no significant difference in pregnancy rates in the two groups.

CONCLUSION:

Manix may play a role in the management of patients with idiopathic olligospermia. However, large scale double blind controlled trials are needed to confirm the findings in this preliminary study.
