Sperm Quality Reduced in Lymphoma Patients, Hadassah Study Reveals

Tuesday, Aug 25 2020

Hadassah Medical Organization researchers have found that sperm quality in lymphoma patients may be compromised even before chemotherapy begins.

Their study involved 101 Hodgkin's and 90 non-Hodgkin's lymphoma patients who underwent sperm cryopreservation before chemotherapy between 1998 and 2015. Conducted in Hadassah’s sperm bank and hematology department, the study identified a significant association of low levels of albumin and hemoglobin with reduced sperm quality.

The results appear in the August issue of Andrologia.
