Glutathione production measured in human sperm with comparisons between groups. CT = control group (samples incubated with sperm preparation medium), NAC group = sperm treated with 50 μM of N-acetylcysteine, ETO group = sperm treated with 25 μg/mL of etoposide, NAC + ETO group = sperm pre-treated with 50 μM of NAC for the first hour plus 25 μg/mL of etoposide for the second hour of incubation, ETO + NAC group = sperm incubated with 25 μg/mL of etoposide for the first hour plus post treatment with 50 μM of NAC for the second hour. Significant differences (P < 0.05) between experimental groups are indicated by letters over corresponding lines (a = a, b = b, a ≠ b)
