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.
Peer review refers to the work done during the screening of submitted manuscripts and funding applications. This process encourages authors to meet the accepted standards of their discipline and reduces the dissemination of irrelevant findings, unwarranted claims, unacceptable interpretations, and personal views. Publications that have not undergone peer review are likely to be regarded with suspicion by academic scholars and professionals.
