Diagnostic test for azoospermia origin
- Non-invasive azoospermia biomarkers & Kit development
- High sensitivity and specificity (>90%)
- Effective azoospermia test in seminal plasma to avoid unnecessary biopsies
This group of miRNAs could be used as non-invasive biomarkers that contribute in the diagnosis of the origin of azoospermia. Those azoospermic cases predicted to be originated from an obstruction of the genitourinary tract have many chances to obtain sperm from the testicular biopsy for the assited reproduction treatment. Additionally, several miRNAs could be used as non-invasive biomarkers to predict the presence of spermatozoa in secretory azoospermia in order to avoid unnecessary biopsies.
