Abstract

Fertility and potential fertility were evaluated in 9 young men on cyclosporine A therapy following renal transplantation. Semen analysis was normal in most parameters in 8 patients as was testicular hormonal function. Of 4 men who had attempted to impregnate their wives 3 succeeded. Cyclosporine A does not seem to affect adversely fertility in men.
