In the present study phosphatase levels ( Acid and Alkaline ) were compared with sperm count and motility in 100 subjects with varying conditions. All the subjects presented were between 21-45 years of age. Samples of semen were collected from 100 cases comprising of the different grades of sperm concentration and motility. Human seminal fluid contains significant amount of acid phosphatase and alkaline phosphatase. The activities of the acid phosphatase and alkaline phosphatase vary considerably in different normal individuals. The activity of acid phosphatase showed progressive rise with decrease in the sperm concentration. No significant correlation observed between seminal acid phosphatase and sperm motility and seminal alkaline phosphatase with sperm count as well as motility.
