Toward our clinical analysis of spermatozoa fertility

From fundamental research to the fertility clinic.

During the last century, fundamental and clinical research efforts in fertility allowed learning a lot about human reproduction. Many discoveries were quickly converted into clinical applications in fertility clinics. Fortunately, current technologies offered in fertility clinics allow monitoring ovulation, identifying polycystic ovary syndrome, performing artificial insemination and much more. All these technologies originated from research in fertility.

In particular, spermatozoa were the focus of many studies over these years. To perform a clinical fertility exam on spermatozoa today mainly involves microscopy and allows a fertility clinic to discriminate between “normal” semen samples and azoospermia, oligospermia, teratospermia, etc.

Technology transfer from the research field to the fertility clinic or medical laboratory is absolutely essential. This process keeps improving the diagnosis that patients seek and obtain from fertility clinics or medical laboratories. The past proves that fundamental scientific knowledge in this field benefited medical laboratories and fertility clinics and thereby the couples afflicted by delayed fertility.

The clinical fertility exam on spermatozoa must improve.

Although useful and necessary, nowadays, microscopy is about the extent of the clinical exam of human semen in fertility clinics and medical laboratories. And yet a complete field of expertise has progressed, which is the understanding of sperm internal biochemistry. Thus, during the past few years, many mechanisms with the potential to reveal the cause for delayed fertility have been elucidated at the level of the chemistry occurring inside the spermatozoa.

Since then, there has been an increasing gap between the technologies used in research and those practiced in fertility clinics or medical laboratories. This is so because the transfer of these technologies to medical laboratories and fertility clinics often requires special know-how in biochemistry and cell biology.

Well aware of this reality and armed with the required expertise, the founders have created Nasci Biologie Médicale Inc., a private medical laboratory dedicated to male fertility, to make the best existing male fertility evaluation technologies available to people.
