    ABSTRACT: The study determined the impact of advanced male ageing (≥50 years) on sperm chromatin integrity and early embryo morphological development in intra-cytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) technique cycles. Six hundred subfertile men were age-grouped; X1 (50 to 59 years), X2 (60 to 69), and X3 (≥70), were compared with 600 fertile males of known fertility (Y, age 25 - 35 years). Oocytes from 254 women, aged ≤ 30 years, were included. Sperm were analyzed using acridine orange fluorescence test (AOT) and categorized: “low”, “inter-mediate” and “high” damage. After ICSI, embryos were evaluated and categorized as “good”, “fair” or “poor” quality. Embryonic morphological development was assessed at three stages: fertilization, early and late paternal effect. The AOT results were: X1: low = 29, intermediate = 53 and high = 118; X2: low = 11, intermediate = 42 and high = 147; X3: low = 8, intermediate = 24 and high = 168; Y: Low = 486, intermediate = 71 and high = 43. The fertilization rate was: X1, 329/350 (93.7%); X2, 298/350 (85.1%); X3, 225/350 (64.1%) and, Y, 350/350 (100%). Associations between increasing age and sperm chromatin damage (χ2 (723.249, 6) p
