Male Fertility and Gut Microbiota: Current Knowledge and Future Directions

Cristian OFlaherty 1Prof. Cristian O'Flaherty from McGill University, Canada, will join Targeting Microbiota 2024 this October to present his latest research: "Male Fertility and Gut Microbiota: Current Knowledge and Future Directions."

Human infertility is on the rise, with approximately 16% of couples being infertile worldwide. In half of these cases, the causes can be traced to men. Causes of male infertility remain hidden in about 34% of patients with normal semen analysis.

In his talk, Prof. O'Flaherty will discuss the suggested relationship between gut microbiota dysbiosis and male infertility. However, more research is needed to elucidate the role of gut microbiota in male reproductive health disorders. An abundance of Bacteroidetes and a reduction of Firmicutes are associated with male infertility. There is potential for therapeutic interventions or personalized treatments for male infertility based on the manipulation of gut microbiota.
