Özet

Background: In order to better understand the pathogenesis of risk of future sub-/infertility in children with undescended testes (UDT), we designed this prospective study to examine the oxidative stress, inflammatory response and autoimmunity in children with UDT. We examined the concentrations of malondialdehyde (MDA), interleukin-6 (IL-6) and antisperm antibodies (ASA) in children with UDT and healthy controls.
