AIM: To test the hypothesis that levels of sperm disomy fell significantly in six men treated by traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). METHODS: Fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) was done on the sperm heads of six men before and during treatment by TCM. RESULTS: There was a significant reduction in sperm disomy in all six men. This coincided with TCM treatment. CONCLUSION: This is the first study reporting a significant reduction in sperm disomy in men over a given time course. The fact that this coincided with TCM treatment is intriguing but no conclusions can be drawn from this until placebo-controlled clinical trials are implemented.
