Patent for Sale:

Diagnosis, Therapy & Prevention of Male Infertility    

This technology also contributes to the detection and measurement of ED causing a risk of inducing low sperm count and reproductive dysfunction.

Overview

The technology relates to techniques for diagnosing male infertility where mutant polynucleotides derived from male infertility associated genes distinguished by point mutation or gene polymorphism, mutant polypeptides as the gene products. The genes and genetic materials of this technology and the respective method contribute development of medical technologies on diagnosis, therapy and prevention of male infertility and development of diagnostic agents, therapeutic or preventive or contraceptive medicines.
