- ... Exposure to nicotine in smoking contributes to most unexplained male infertility but the mechanisms remain to be fully elucidated. Zinc (Zn) is an essential trace element in normal growth, development and reproduction. Zinc oxide nanoparticles (ZnONPs) are well-known antioxidants. Therefore, this work was designed to investigate the potential ability of ZnONPs to protect testis and epididymis in n ...
