Dr. Ward in his commentary summarized the currently available sperm DNA fragmentation (SDF) tests. He classified the eight SDF assays into four groups based on the different target sites and illustrated the grouping in a diagram to simplify understanding of the readers (1). We would like to supplement, in the following sessions, by (I) further solidifying the current clinical evidence of SDF, and (II) discussing means to move SDF from laboratories to clinics.
