Control of fertility and correction of infertility are two of many urgent problems in reproductive biology. While an attack upon these problems may be classified as applied research, solutions depend upon revealing fundamental biological mechanisms. Therefore, studies on the participation of immunological and immunochemical events relative to reproduction are being pursued. As a result of such studies, it is possible to provide experimental models of clinically observed infertile cases. For example, immunization with antigens extracted from homologous testes and spermatozoa can elicit the following spectrum of responses in recipient male guinea pigs: oligospermia, azospermia, immobilization and agglutination of spermatozoa and
