From: Ameliorative effect of taurine-chloramine in azathioprine-induced testicular damage; a deeper insight into the mechanism of protection

Groups Group I
(Control)
Group II

Group IV
(TAU-CL/AZA)
Parameters
Sperm motility (%) 90.45 ± 5.01 88.5 ± 4.51 51.59a ± 1.59 86.13b ± 4.32
Caudal epididymal sperm count (106/ml) 95.01 ± 2.15 92.3 ± 2.21 30.75a ± 2.66 89.99b ± 3.65
Sperm vitality (live: dead ratio) 14.15 ± 1.02 13.8 ± 1.31 5.95a ± 0.65 13.01b ± 1.25
  1. Assessment of percentage of sperm motility, epididymal count (106/ml) and sperm vitality (Live: Death ratio) in the experimental groups; Control, TAU-CL, AZA, TAU-CL/AZA. Data are presented as the mean ± SEM, and data were analyzed using one-way ANOVA followed by the Bonferroni post hoc multiple comparison test (n = 10). Differences between groups were considered statistically significant at P ≤ 0.05. (a) Significant versus the control group. (b) Significant versus the AZA group
