Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Infertility is a major public health problem that has become increasingly important in recent years, with the World Health Organization estimating that 1 in 6 couples are affected by it. In 50% of cases, a male factor is the cause of this condition; however, even today, it is not possible to identify the cause in approximately 50% of cases, falling under the definition of idiopathic infertility. This Special Issue aims to analyze the main issues in the field of male reproduction that still require careful evaluation by the scientific community, new research insights into this topic and the possible future directions to be followed to improve the knowledge on the relevant pathogenesis and therapeutic management.
