Male Sexual Dysfunction
The journal uses Editorial Manager System for a qualitative and prompt review process. Editorial Manager is an online manuscript submission, review and tracking system. Review processing is performed by the editorial board members of Andrology & Gynecology: Current Research journal or relevant experts from other universities or institutes. Minimum two independent reviewer’s approval followed by editor approval is required for the acceptance of any citable manuscript. Authors may submit manuscripts and track their progress through the editorial system.

A Missed Opportunity: FDA and Mitochondrial Manipulation Technology
On February 25th and 26th2014 the Federal Drug Administration(FDA) convened a Cellular, Tissue and Gene Advisory Committee meeting in Gaithersburg, Maryland. The stated purpose of this meeting was to review basic and clinical research related to “Oocyte modification in Assisted Reproduction for the Prevention of Mitochondrial Disease or Treatment of Infertility”, in order to make recommendations regarding the proper conduct of proposed future clinical trials. The meeting was public, and in addition to the invited presentations of expert scientists in the field, an Open Public Session forum in which participants were given 4 minutes to speak was included. The national press corps was also in attendance and the meeting was highly reported in both written and visual media outlets. .
Testicular Microlithiasis among Infertile Men: A Reason for Concern?
Testicular microlithiasis is an infrequently diagnosed condition that can be associated with a variety of pathologies of the testis, the best known of which is its association with testicular cancer. This study examines the frequency of testicular microlithiasis from a large group of men attending an infertility clinic where all men undergo genito-urinary ultrasound screening. Of 749 men, a total of 46 men were found to have testicular microlithiasis (6.1%) of which the lesion was bilateral in 39 and unilateral in 7 men.
Female circumcision is a very important health problem affecting about 140 million people all around the world. Its global annual incidence is believed to be 3 in one million people. Female genital mutilation has been reported to occur in all parts of the world, but it is most prevalent in: the western, eastern, and north-eastern regions of Africa, some countries in Asia and the Middle East and among certain immigrant communities in North America and Europe. With its origins in the history dating back to very old times, the female circumcision has reached the present day as a social and cultural practice.
Androgen-Dependent Chemical Elements of Prostate Gland
FTo clarify androgen-dependence of chemical element mass fractions in prostate gland, a quantitative measurement by five analytical methods was performed. The intact prostate glands of 50 subjects (European-Caucasian aged 0–30 years) was investigated by an energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence (EDXRF), an instrumental neutron activation analysis with high resolution spectrometry of short-lived radionuclides (INAA-SLR), an instrumental neutron activation analysis with high resolution spectrometry of long-lived radionuclides (INAA-LLR), an inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectrometry (ICP-AES), and an inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS).
