Description

Bioenvironmental Issues Affecting Men's Reproductive and Sexual Health is structured into two parts related to men’s reproductive and sexual health with eight sections designed to enable a logical flow of such knowledge. The book is focused on the biology of key organs involved in male reproduction and the environmental influences affecting their functions with particular emphasis on clinical aspects.

Individual chapters within the book range from basic to translational aspects, but all hold clinical relevance. This is an essential reference for those working and learning in the field of human reproduction, reproductive toxicology and environmental influences on reproductive and sexual health.

Key Features

  • Brings together the leading authorities working in the field of male reproduction and sexual health and how the environment affects these issues.
  • Provides guidelines and reference values of various reproductive hormones, semen parameters, inclusion/exclusion criteria for clinical trials.
  • Discover the most efficient methods by which to design clinical protocols for sperm safety studies and reproductive toxicology trials.

Readership

Professional researchers in the field of reproductive toxicology, preclinical toxicologists, andrologists, reproductive epidemiologists, endocrinologists and Urologists involved in research, graduate students in toxicology
