I'm not aware of any research on this subject & don't expect any to be done.
The purported benefits of brahmacharya are more for spiritual than physical health, though better spiritual health might improve physical health. On the other hand, frequent ejaculation is associated with reduced risk of prostate cancer so celibacy might increase this risk!see http://www.Centeredyoga.Com/brahmacharya.Html.
