This can be explained by the increased complexity of the growing follicle and gap junctional communication, which makes them more sensitive to cryodamage (35).
Although the cryodamage may be decreased following ovarian tissue vitrification, the optimal cryoprotectant with low toxicity is important for ovarian tissue vitrification.
more resistance of primordial follicle to cryodamage were observed in vitrified ovarian tissues compared to other stages.
Addition of additives such as cysteine and lipoic acid to the semen freezing extender, may prevent cryodamage to spermatozoa metabolism and antioxidant capacities.
These protect spermatozoa from ROS producing abnormal spermatozoa, scavenge ROS produced by leucocytes, prevent DNA fragmentation, improve semen quality in smokers, reduce cryodamage to spermatozoa, block premature sperm maturation, and stimulate spermatozoa and improve assisted reproductive techniques (ART) outcome.
Park et al (105) have shown that vitamin E (10 mmol/1) and rebamipide (300 mmol/1) decreased the cryodamage during the freeze-thaw procedure and improve post-thaw motility.
Evidence for increased lipid peroxidative damage and loss of superoxide dismutase activity as a mode of sublethal cryodamage to human sperm during cryopreservation.
