  Purpose

The study was designed to determine if Androxal® would affect sperm parameters (count, concentration, volume) in men with secondary hypogonadism who have been previously treated with topical testosterone. A maximum of twelve subjects per group were randomized to daily treatments of Androxal® or topical testosterone (Testim®) for six months. The protocol was later amended to include a treatment group who received Androxal after a 3 month wash out period.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Mean Sperm Concentration Baseline [ Time Frame: baseline ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Mean baseline values of total sperm concentration were measured for subjects in each of 3 treatment groups.

  • Mean Sperm Concentration 3 Months [ Time Frame: 3 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Mean values of sperm concentration were measured for subjects in each of 3 treatment groups at 3 months

  • Mean Sperm Concentraion 6 Months [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Mean values of sperm concentration were measured for subjects in each of 3 treatment groups at 6 months

  • Mean Total Sperm Count Basline [ Time Frame: baseline ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Mean values of total sperm count were measured for subjects in each of 3 treatment groups at baseline

  • Mean Total Sperm Count 3 Months [ Time Frame: 3 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Mean values of total sperm count were measured for subjects in each of 3 treatment groups at 3 months

  • Mean Total Sperm Count 6 Months [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Mean values of total sperm count were measured for subjects in each of 3 treatment groups at 6 months

  • Mean Semen Volume Baseline [ Time Frame: baseline ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Mean values of semen volume were measured for subjects in each of 3 treatment groups at baseline

  • Mean Semen Volume 3 Months [ Time Frame: 3 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Mean values of semen volume were measured for subjects in each of 3 treatment groups at 3 months

  • Mean Semen Volume 6 Months [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Mean values of semen volume were measured for subjects in each of 3 treatment groups at 6 months


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Mean Follicle Stimulating Hormone(FSH) and Leutinizing Hormone(LH) Levels From Baseline to 3-months in Men Treated With Androxal® Versus Testim [ Time Frame: baseline, 3 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:
