The article presented following this introduction describes a specialized application of BioFlex Laser Therapy. Moreover it represents an outstanding research project at an appropriate point in time. Whereas in some aspects it may be considered preliminary, the benefits it demonstrates in elevating the mobility and potency of sperm are significant and should facilitate the process of successful fertilization.
Many articles and factors relating to this topic are explored at a time when a simpler therapy than IVF should be applied in order to facilitate procreation for a population in which the rate of fertilization is declining.
This piece of research might lead to a follow up project exploring irradiation of the ova pre and post ovulation from the anterior lateral and posterior approach. I believe that this might add additional benefit and would be pleased to assist in the design of appropriate therapeutic parameters. Of significance, is the potential benefit that can be derived from the application of precise laser therapy in an area where currently no other specific treatment is available. On a final note, my congratulations to Dr. Heinrich van Wyk and Professor Stefan du Plessis at Stellenbosch University in South Africa, one of the oldest and most respected educational institutions in the world.
