Discussion & Conclusion

Q: Is it related to the results presented before? Do you consider them as coherent?

A: Very good



The study is well designed and executed. The experiments performed are really convincing and the observations are properly explained and discussed in the Discussion section. The Results are well supported with briefly explained table. The study shows that the ATP content of an ejaculate differs from other established semen variables and may identify a population of metabolically active or “effective” sperm in an ejaculate. The article provides relevant information about a new research perspective that can be further analysed.

Further comments on the paper

Comments: This study aims to determine the association of sperm adenosine triphosphate (ATP) content with the standard sperm parameters and among different populations of sperm within an ejaculate. The study holds significance as a test that can simultaneously assess the normalcy of most of the known sperm characteristics of a population of sperm that has not yet been achieved. The rapid, quantitative ATP assay in this article provides new information regarding the overall metabolic function of the ejaculate and is independent of other semen variables.


Q: Would you recommend this manuscript for further publication?
