    Notes: Summary The measurement of biochemical markers in human seminal plasma is important in the evaluation of male infertility. We recommend the measurement of one representative substance for each organ involved in seminal fluid production as a routine diagnostic tool: The initial fructose level for seminal vesicular function, citrate or acid phosphatase for the prostate gland and free carnitine as an index of epididymal function. A biochemical analysis of seminal fluid enables us to detect disturbances of the male adnexal organs and may lead to more exact therapy.

    Notes: Abstract The production of the cytokines interferon γ (IFN γ), interleukin-1 α (IL-1 α) and tumor necrosis factor α (TNF α) was investigated in the mitogen-stimulated whole blood cell culture media from 51 patients with urinary bladder carcinomas, 52 patients with renal carcinomas, 31 patients with prostatic carcinomas and 360 healthy controls. The cytokines were measured 4 days after induction by a sensitive enzymo-immunological assay. In the blood cell culture supernatants of the patients with urinary bladder carcinomas significancy lower levels of IFN γ (P≤0.001), IL-2 (P≤0.001) and TNFα (P≤0.05) were found as compared to the controls. Blood cells of patients with renal carcinomas had lower production of IFN γ (P≤0.01), IL-2 (P≤0.001) and IL-1α (P≤0.01), whereas the values of the total group of patients with prostatic carcinomas were not significantly different from those of the controls. Lymphocyte and monocyte counts were almost identical in the control and all tumor patient groups. When the patients with renal carcinomas and prostatic carcinomas were analyzed according to their different clinical stages we could show a gradual depression of the IFN-γ levels, which was related to tumor burden.

    Notes: Zusammenfassung Trotz der Entwicklung neuer assistierter reproduktionsmedizinischer Techniken darf auf eine umfassende andrologische Untersuchung nicht verzichtet werden, um dem infertilen Paar eine optimale Therapie anbieten zu können. Neben einer detaillierten Anamneseerhebung ist die körperliche Untersuchung des Mannes in einer ungewollt kinderlos gebliebenen Partnerschaft die Basis für alle weiteren diagnostischen und therapeutischen Maßnahmen. Der Ultraschall ist heute bei der urologisch-andrologischen Untersuchung so bedeutend geworden, daß er die „dritte Hand“ des Untersuchers genannt wird. Alle Genitalorgane – Hoden, Nebenhoden, Prostata, Bläschendrüsen und Penis – sind sonographisch hervorragend abzubilden und krankhafte Veränderungen mit einer hohen Treffsicherheit zu diagnostizieren.
