	abstract = {Background: The sperm DNA fragmentation index (DFI) is widely regarded as a key measure for assessing male fertility, but the predictive value of the DFI for outcomes of assisted reproductive technology (ART) remains under debate. In this study, we used a large sample to analyze the effect of sperm DFI on pregnancy outcomes following ART and its relationship with oocyte fertilization and embryo development in in vitro fertilization (IVF)/intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI). We also explore the value of sperm DNA fragmentation (SDF) and its associated factors in assessing male fertility.
Methods: The relationship between the DFI measured with the sperm chromatin structure assay (SCSA) and pregnancy outcomes following ART were retrospectively analyzed in 2,622 ART treatment cycles, of which 1,185 were intrauterine insemination (IUI) cycles, 1,221 were IVF cycles and 216 were ICSI cycles. Rates of pregnancy, early abortion, oocyte fertilization and good quality embryos from IVF and ICSI cycles were compared between the groups of low DFI (DFI ≤15%), medium DFI (15%< DFI },
