Idiopathic infertility is responsible for 50% of male infertility cases, which are increasing at a fast rate over the last years. This means that today’s diagnostic tools are insufficient to determine the cause of their condition.
Theunexplained reasons behind idiopathic male infertility are also the missing link for the development of effective treatments for those individuals.
Consequently, there is an urge for new biomarkers to shed light on these undetected cases. Such a biomarker is telomere length.
Today numerous research studies show a clear correlation between telomere length and male infertility.
