Antisperm antibodies, often known as ASA, are sperm-killing immune system proteins. They can appear when the immune system is activated to defend the body because the body perceives sperm as an invader. Antisperm antibodies can be discovered in semen, blood, or vaginal secretions, albeit they are uncommon.
Traditionally, disruption of the blood-testis barrier has been identified as the cause of ASA production. This mechanism has been proposed in testicular trauma and surgery, orchitis (mumps), varicocele, bacterial infections (epididymitis, prostatitis), testicular cancer, and unprotected anal sex. However, the relevance of the above conditions to ASA production is debatable.
Chronic obstruction, most typically indicated by vasectomy followed by a reversal of vasectomy, is the only condition that results in consistently high and sustained ASA titers.
Apart from breaching the blood-testis barrier, swelling of the epididymis, increased intraluminal pressure and the formation of sperm granulomas leading to sperm phagocytosis appear to be contributing factors. The presence of anti-sperm antibodies can adversely affect fertility by affecting sperm count, motility, and sperm-egg interactions.

ASAB blood test in India is used to identify anti-sperm antibodies, which fight against sperm in blood, vaginal secretions, or semen. The antibodies might severely harm or destroy any sperm. Immunologic infertility is the word for when there are too many antibodies to allow the sperm to fertilise the egg. The self-immune system of the individual may produce antibodies that unintentionally could harm their sperm. This could be brought on by surgical procedures like a biopsy or vasectomy, as well as testicular injuries.
An infection of the prostate gland may also be to blame. Sperm are often kept separate from the body and immune system by the testicles. The likelihood that the immune system might experience an allergic response.
There are general efforts to identify specific sperm surface antigens that serve as targets for ASA. The set of sperm surface antigens is highly dynamic over time, as sperm undergo biological changes such as capacitation, acrosomal reaction, zona pellucida attachment, and sperm-egg fusion. In addition, some of the sperm surface antigens may be incorporated into the plasma membrane of the embryo, resulting in the negative effects of her ASA after fertilisation.
Both male and female bodies can test for anti-sperm antibodies via certain immunological processes. The use of Computer Assisted Semen Analysis (CASA) employs an optimized, specially created algorithm to find the presence of ASAs in the serum.
The anti-sperm antibody test is extremely helpful since it can be used to identify the cause of infertility. Fertility specialists in India can frequently assist patients in resolving this issue by adding specific solutions at the time of sample collection if infertility testing reveals these antibodies.
