Abstract (Abstract): 2012 FEB 25 - (NewsRx.com) -- New investigation results, "Recent adverse trends in
semen quality and testis cancer incidence among Finnish men," are detailed in a study published in
International Journal of Andrology. According to the authors of a study from Copenhagen, Denmark, "Impaired
semen quality and testicular cancer may be linked through a testicular dysgenesis syndrome of foetal origin.
The incidence of testis cancer has been shown to increase among Finnish men, whereas there is no recent
publication describing temporal trends in semen quality."
Full text: 2012 FEB 25 - (NewsRx.com) -- New investigation results, "Recent adverse trends in semen quality
and testis cancer incidence among Finnish men," are detailed in a study published in International Journal of
Andrology. According to the authors of a study from Copenhagen, Denmark, "Impaired semen quality and
testicular cancer may be linked through a testicular dysgenesis syndrome of foetal origin. The incidence of testis
cancer has been shown to increase among Finnish men, whereas there is no recent publication describing
temporal trends in semen quality."
"Therefore, we carried out a prospective semen quality study and a registry study of testis cancer incidence
among Finnish men to explore recent trends. A total of 858 men were investigated in the semen quality study
during 1998-2006. Median sperm concentrations were 67 (95% CI 57-80) million/mL, 60 (51-71) and 48 (39-60)
for birth cohorts 1979-81, 1982-83 and 1987; total sperm counts 227 (189-272) million, 202 (170-240) and 165
(132-207); total number of morphologically normal spermatozoa 18 (14-23) million, 15 (12-19) and 11 (8-15).
Men aged 10-59 years at the time of diagnosis with testicular cancer during 1954-2008 were included in the
registry study, which confirmed the increasing incidence of testicular cancer in recent cohorts. These
simultaneous and rapidly occurring adverse trends suggest that the underlying causes are environmental and,
as such, preventable," wrote N. Jorgensen and colleagues, Copenhagen University Hospital.
The researchers concluded: "Our findings necessitate not only further surveillance of male reproductive health
but also research to detect and remove the underlying factors."
Jorgensen and colleagues published the results of their research in International Journal of Andrology (Recent
adverse trends in semen quality and testis cancer incidence among Finnish men. International Journal of
Andrology, 2011;34(4 Pt 2):e37-48).
