Abstract

Both cell-mediated immunity and humoral antibodies are involved in experimental autoimmune orchitis (Tung and Alexander - 1977). The importance of antisperm autoantibodies in male infertility has been amply demonstrated in human pathology; whereas few reports have appeared in the literature, and even these, in some instances, are controversial, on the role of cell-mediated immunity in the induction of male infertility (Schulman - 1977). The aim of the present investigation was to study cellular immunity against nematospermic antigens in a few selected forms of male infertility.
