12.5% for this technique. Seminal plasma was examined for IgA antibodies against C. trachomatis. There was a significant difference in AR between healthy volunteers, Chlamydia-negative and Chlamydia-positive patients. DeltaARs were 15.8 +/- 1.6% in healthy volunteers versus 12.15 +/- 2.4% in Chlamydia-negative and 9.08 +/- 1.8% in Chlamydia-postive patients, respectively (P < 0.05). Significant elevated titres of C. trachomatis-specific IgA in seminal plasma showed a negative correlation with the AR of spermatozoa. AR seems to be a valuable marker, especially in couples with idiopathic infertility.
