Whole-body X-ray irradiation-induced testicular alterations in mice is associated to Male Reproductive dysfunction.
 Pretreatment of Aloe vera extract promoted sperm count/motility and testosterone levels significantly through reduced elevation in the levels of reactive oxygen species, lipid peroxidation, and improved oxidant enzymes, according to the joint study lead by the Panjab University.

Dr. Bala S, the lead author said, "Irradiated animals pre-treated with A. vera extract revealed an improvement in antioxidant status, inhibition of lipid peroxides, apoptotic cell formation and enhanced testicular parameters when compared to the X-ray-exposed group".
