Male infertility is a major health problem affecting about 8–12% of couples worldwide. Male infertility can result from primary or congenital, acquired, or idiopathic causes. The absence of sperm in semen, or azoospermia, results from non-obstructive causes (pretesticular and testicular), and post-testicular obstructive causes. Several medications such as antihypertensive drugs, antidepressants, chemotherapy, and radiotherapy could lead to impaired spermatogenesis and lead to a non-obstructive azoospermia.
Cell therapy is introduced as new promising therapeutic intervention in treatment of degenerative diseases because of having high differentiation potential while maintaining the ability to self-replicate and retain features of their source cells.
