Apoptosis and proliferation in human undescended testes

This study showed that the reduced fertility associated with undescended testes
cannot be explained by either reduced proliferation or increased apoptosis of
testicular germ cells at the time of surgical intervention. It remains possible that the
testis simply has fewer germ cells, or that abnormalities in germ cell turnover occur
before 6months of age.
