To evaluate the TPP-ZnO nano particle cyto toxic activity against smoking influenced spermatozoa


An experimental study


Gene Cloning and Technology Lab, VIT University, Vellore


Chronic smokers who came for first time for infertility issues


Tea poly phenol (TPP) mixed zinc oxide nanoparticle with smoker's semen against untreated control was analyzed.

Main Outcome Measure(s)

Spermatozoa motility, viability and appearance of morphology.


TPP mixed ZnO nano particle will give maximum (5%) of motility and MTT-IC50 shows the maximum viability (P<0.001) with positive morphological changes which near to untreated control.


Metal toxicity from smoking effect on sperm motility and viability was reduced or improved with another natural antioxidant of TPP through ZnO nano delivery



Zinc oxide nano particle, Smoking, Cadmium, Tea poly phenol, ROS.
