Dissertation note Considerable evidence exists for the efficacy and safety of short courses of low
dose testosterone therapy for treating infertility and delayed puberty. This treatment is
associated with high levels of patient satisfaction. There is not yet sufficient evidence for
the routine use of other therapies. Experimentally, date extract had been shown to
increase sperm count and increase stimulating concentration of testosterone count in
guinea pigs and to enhance spermatogenesis, follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) and
luteinizing hormone (LH) in rats. Intratesticular testosterone (ITT) is thought to play a
key role in the control of spermatogenesis but is rarely measured.
The present study is therefore designed to examine the effect of date palm pollen
(DPP) (Phoenix dactylifera) on the plasma and intra-testicular testosterone levels using
male albino rat as an experimental animal with the hope that the result of this study may
pave the way for treating male infertility and delayed puberty.
Adult male albino rats were divided into two groups (control and experimental).
Experimental group were given date palm pollen (DPP) suspension in a single oral dose
of 120 mg/kg of body weight for 35 days. Where as the control were given equal amount
of distilled water. Blood samples of control and experimental groups were taken for
measurement of serum testosterone levels at day 0, 12, 24 and finally at day 36.Aanimals
were sacrificed. Testes were removed for gross and biological studies. Intra-testicular
testosterone levels were measured at the end of experimental studies.
There were no statistically significant differences in the variable of control group.
Experimental group who received DPP suspension for 35 days showed statistically significant increase in body weight, weight of paired testes, serum and intra- testicular testosterone levels as compared to control group.
