Abstract

Recent research efforts have been devoted to the evaluation of sperm aneuploidy frequency, but have lacked racial diversity and mainly focused on white men. The goal of this analysis is to therefore provide an exploratory look at sperm health among District of Columbia area men and examine associations between sperm aneuploidy and men of different ethnic groups and races. Analysis will be done on 132 men recruited and receiving treatment at the George Washington University Medical Faculty Associates (MFA), and will provide additional information on the ways in which diversity may affect male reproductive health.
