Instituto Bernabeu discovers that natural antioxidants found in bay leaves and cinnamon improve spermatozoa quality

  • 01/10/18

Instituto Bernabeu research presented at the 9th edition of the Congress of the Society for the Study of Reproduction Biology (ASEBIR) held in Madrid found that the natural antioxidant cinnamtannin B1 present mainly in bay leaves and cinnamon protects spermatozoa from DNA damage. This natural protector increases the ability to fertilise the ovum and improves the quality of the embryos that are generated.

Instituto Bernabeu applies new technique to detect alterations in sperm production

  • 12/27/17

At the Association for the Study of Reproduction Biology (ASEBIR)'s 9th Congress held in Madrid, Instituto Bernabeu introduced a research paper focusing on checking the MLPA (Multiplex Ligation-dependent Probe Amplification) technique's sensitivity levels in order to find out how specific alterations can affect sperm production. Our investigation entitled: "New technique to detect Y chromosome microdeletion (YCM): Clinical implications” was based on the fact that Y chromosomes comprise different genetic regions involved with spermatogenesis or sperm production. In the event that one of these regions, also known as AZF, was deleted or duplicated, this could result in either a low amount or the complete absence of sperm.
