|Sperm DNA is vulnerable to oxidative damage due to inherent and extrinsic factors which cause oxidative stress and due to partial DNA damage detection and repair mechanism. Reactive oxygen species (ROS) are the chief cause of sperm DNA damage. So, this study was strategic to assess oxidative stress levels and correlate with sperm DNA damage. Men in the reproductive age group may knowledge qualitative and quantitative defect in sperm production, but there are men with usual sperm parameters who are infertile, such cases are classified with idiopathic infertility.
The impact factor of journal provides quantitative assessment tool for grading, evaluating, sorting and comparing journals of similar kind. It reflects the average number of citations to recent articles published in science and social science journals in a particular year or period, and is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field. It is first devised by Eugene Garfield, the founder of the Institute for Scientific Information. The impact factor of a journal is evaluated by dividing the number of current year citations to the source items published in that journal during the previous two years.
