Sažetak
Data on the reproductive effects of Ni are scarce and attention has usually been directed towards excessive exposure to this metal. Serum concentrations of As, Cd, Co, Cu, Hg, Mo, Ni, Pb, Se and Zn, parameters of semen quality and reproductive hormone levels were measured in samples collected from 76 men (age 24-46) with no occupational exposure to metals. The group consisted of 50 men with varicocele (an enlargement of the vein within the scrotum) and 26 control subjects. The results showed a significant deterioration in almost all measured semen quality parameters with increasing grade of varicocele. Men with varicocele had significantly higher concentrations of serum Ni. After adjusting for age, smoking habits, alcohol consumption and concentration of the other metals, the results showed that an increase in serum Ni significantly correlated with a decrease in sperm density, percentage and count of viable, motile and progressively motile sperm, and serum prolactin. These results indicate that even low-level Ni exposure may have adverse effects on male reproductive health.
