What are the tests for immotile cilia syndrome?

Pathology, blood tes: A blood test can identify some patients with ciliary dyskinesia (immotile cilia syndrome), but the standard test is electron microscopy from a biopsy of the lining of the nose or airway. Some centers can evaluate a fresh biopsy sample to see how the cilia are actually working while the cells with cilia on them are alive. ...Read more

KARTAGENER'S SYND.??: Does kartagener's syndrome sound like the condition you have been told that you have? If you have frequent respiratory infections, you porbably do. In this condition, the cilia in the fallopian tues do not function and infertility is very usually the result. If you are not pregnant in 6 months, you will need in vitro fertilization, which in my experience, is a very successful treatment. ...Read more

Is 45% immotile on sperm test bad?

Is 45% immotile on sperm test bad?

Semen testing: The various tests included with semen testing (count, motility, morphology, etc.) all have some correlation with male fertility, but virtually none are absolute indicators of infertility. So, a decreased motility result still has a reasonable chance of resulting in a pregnancy over time. There are statistics for each value, but the variations are wide. ...Read more

Count is 10 million. Slugghish motile sperm 25%... Using this immotile sperm will icsi success? Already we have 2 failed icsi. .

It should work!: Icsi (injecting a sperm into an egg) bypasses poor motility and should succeed. If you have failed two ivf/icsi cycles, I strongly suggest you defer a third cycle, gather up your records, and undergo a second opinion consult at a facility that has a high ivf success rate (you can see mine, for example, at: http://ivfmd.

Sa:motility (rapid)=19.4%-slow=14%-immotile=59.6%/total sperm count=56mill/abnormal forms=80%/vitality=45%/viscosity=normal. What's your opinion?

See answer: If you compare the results with the 2010 world health organization reference values for normal semen parameters, this semen sample is close to being within normal limits: sperm count very good, morphology adequate, and motility and vitality slightly low. Not knowing any further details, might consider a repeat semen sample at some point given variability that can occur. Hope this helps. ...Read more

My husband sperm count is 67millionl/ml, Rapid motile 9% & Slow motile 43% & non-progressive motile 8% & Immotile 40% can I get pregnant or not?

My husband sperm count is 67millionl/ml, Rapid motile 9% & Slow motile 43% & non-progressive motile 8% & Immotile 40% can I get pregnant or not?

Sperm Count: Based solely on motility there is a very poor number of his sperm that are mobile. This does not mean you can't get pregnant, just that you may need some help. I would have your husband see a urologist first and see if there is anything they can do. After that you may want to consider insemination of concentrated samples of your husbands semen. Talk to your OB about that. Best Wishes. ...Read more

4.5 ml vol semen collection with 40% rapid 13% slow 42% immotile 5% nonprogressive and 95% abnormal. Motility is 300.2 sperm count 115.0. Infertile?

See your doctor: Typically 2-3 semen analyses are obtained over 3 months before any final conclusion is made regarding baseline quality and quantity. Commonly used values: volume>2.0 ml, ph 7.2-7.8, concentration >20 x 10^6/ml, motility >50%, morphology >30% with normal morphology, WBC <1 x 10^6/ml. Based on your values, fertility may be very challenging, but your doctor can help rule out causes, such as infection. ...Read more

Hi sir I am using gonadil-f 250-300mg and Evion 600mg because he has thin semen with volume 2ml and PH=8, sperm count = 36 million/ml, immotile=55%, rapid progression=10%, slow progression=25%, non-progressive motility=10%, normal sperms=45%, abnormal=55

Here are some. ..: Your semen analysis is not that bad although some figures such as motility, shape, etc are marginal. As to using gonadil, etc., their effects for male fertility & spermatogenesis are not observed in humans, at most, suggesting in animal study, which hasn't been known ever existed. So, ask your doc for detail & specifics about fertility timely. ...Read more

Is it the cilia wch hepls in peristaltic movement or relaxation and contraction?

Is it the cilia wch hepls in peristaltic movement or relaxation and contraction?

No, it's the muscles: In the gut, from the mouth to the anus, it is the muscle (fibers that surround the "tube" that is the gut) that moves food through in peristaltic movements. There is a large network of nerves that help control the gut muscle movements so that material passes smoothly. Too fast = diarrhea; too slow = constipation. ...Read more

Are pulsating nasal rinses affective at stimulating cilia and moving mucus? Thanks for any advice you my have.

Slow flow better: It's probably better for the lining of your delicate nasal passages to use gravity, and allow the water to simply flow over the membranes to remove the mucus. Make sure you are not around cigarette smoke, which will negatively affect the cilia. You can buy a neti pot at the drugstore, along with premix salts to add to sterile water. ...Read more

Why does smoking cause damage to the cilia, alveoli, and lungs?

Why does smoking cause damage to the cilia, alveoli, and lungs?

Tobacco X: Even in pure organic tobacco when ignited and smoked compounds are present that inflame and eventually can scar the lining of the lungs. Also, one sees compensatory efforts by the lungs to protect themselves. Goblet cells start producing more mucous and that is one reason for smoker's cough being so nasty. By the way nicotine is relatively harmless and can be very helpful even long term. ...Read more

What does breathing have to do with my cilia and lung cells?

What does breathing have to do with my cilia and lung cells?

Clearing the airways: Ciliated cells line the trachea, bronchi and smaller airways. The beating of the cilia transports any particles, that land on the them, towards the mouth and on the way such particles may be coughed out or swallowed. Maintaining the potency of the airways is essential for breathing. ...Read more
