Abstract

In this study, acrosin activity and hyaluronic acid binding were compared in sperm from men with spinal cord injury versus sperm from healthy controls. The results showed statistically significantly lower acrosin activity and statistically significantly lower hyaluronic acid binding in spinal cord injured patients compared with controls, indicating functional impairments that may diminish the capacity of the sperm to fertilize oocytes.
