Aims: Chronic stress leads to the development of male sexual problems such as ejaculatory dysfunctions. The rhythmic contractions of vas deferens (VD) play an important role on the ejaculatory process. In the current study, we investigated whether infliximab (IFX) treatment has any beneficial effects on possible alterations in contractility of VD obtained from rats exposed to unpredictable chronic mild stress (UCMS).
