Abstract: The aim of our study was to compare the motility and progressive motility of rabbit sperm after patulin intramuscular administration twice a week for two weeks. Adult male rabbits (n= 30) were used in experiment. Animals were divided into two groups: control group (C) without patulin exposure and experimental group (E) with addition of patulin (10 μg.kg-1 of body weight). Semen collection was performed using an artificial vagina. All samples were analysed using CASA (Computer Assisted Semen Analysis) system and following parameters were evaluated: percentage of motile spermatozoa and percentage of progressive motile spermatozoa. The sperm motility (p˂0.05) as well as the progressive motility (p˂0.05) was significantly lower in E group when compared to the control.
