Featured NICHD Clinical Trials on Men's Reproductive Health
- Effect of Testosterone in Men With Erectile Dysfunction (TED)
Evaluation of a combination of topical gels that deliver transdermal progestin and testosterone resulting in sustained reversible inhibition of sperm production in men.
- Sperm Banking Among Adolescents Newly Diagnosed With Cancer: Development of a Profiling and Referral Tool
Despite the known adverse effects of specific cancer treatments on fertility, only 18% to 26% of at-risk adolescents and young men in the United States cryopreserve sperm prior to cancer treatment. The sperm banking rates are even lower among adolescents who have increased anxiety at cancer diagnosis, are lower in age and socioeconomic status, are of evangelical religious orientation, or are diagnosed with leukemia/lymphoma. This study examines risk factors associated with failure to bank sperm among adolescents with cancer, a developmentally distinct population ripe for intervention.
