To assess the effect of Hominax—a TGA listed product consisting of 15 active ingredients, including antioxidants, herbs, nutrients and vitamins—on the sperm health of men.
Healthy men aged between 20-60 years old, with mild to moderate infertility.
Clinical intervention will follow an open-label, single arm design. Males will receive 2 capsules of Hominax each day for 24 weeks. The primary outcome measures include changes in sperm concentration, motility and morphology. Secondary outcome measures include the number of confirmed pregnancy as well as changes in lipid peroxidation of seminal plasma and sperm, sperm DNA fragmentation by semen sample, semen volume, semen pH and homocysteine levels by blood sample. In addition, we will also assess changes in serum micronutrient status of B12, zinc and folate. Adverse events will be monitored by an Adverse Events Log. This study is registered with the Australian New Zealand Clinical Trials Register.
