Abstract

Leukocytes contribute directly and indirectly to reactive oxygen species (ROS) production. Although leukocytospermia is defined as the presence of ≥ 1 × 106 white blood cells/mL (WBC/mL) in a semen sample, the presence of less than 1×10(6) WBC/mL (low-level leukocytospermia) can still produce a detectable amount of ROS, impairing sperm function and lowering the chances of pregnancy. Our objective was to assess the effect of low-level leukocytospermia on semen quality, ROS levels, and DNA damage in infertile men.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 05 January 2015.
All research outputs
#13,142,590
of 19,802,760 outputs
Outputs from Reproductive Biology and Endocrinology
#439
of 819 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#190,658
of 333,732 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Reproductive Biology and Endocrinology
#18
of 34 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 19,802,760 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 22nd percentile – i.e., 22% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 819 research outputs from this source. They typically receive more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 9.2. This one is in the 37th percentile – i.e., 37% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 333,732 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 33rd percentile – i.e., 33% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 34 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 44th percentile – i.e., 44% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
