    • Abstract

       

      Biological and clinical research on male reproduction and fertility regulation carried at the National Institute of Health and Family Welfare over the past 17 years has been highlighted in this review. Areas of research covered pertains to hormones in relation to sperm maturation and transport; fertilizing ability of spermatozoa under different experimental conditions; agents producing functional sterility; seasonal variations in primate reproduction; male infertility including semen biochemistry, differential diagnosis between obstructive and non-obstructive azoospermia and hormone therapy; vasectomy, reversible vasocclusion and vasanastomosis; and the use of cyproterone acetate and testosterone enanthate in male rhesus monkey and human volunteers for reversible contraception.
