PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — A Portland jury awarded no money Thursday to the parents of a little boy who lost his testicles during a surgery at Oregon Health & Science University.

His parents had sought $1.4 million to pay for testosterone injections he will need for life.

The Oregonian reports (http://is.gd/i7FZcl ) the boy was 11 months old at the time of the 2009 surgery for undescended testicles. He is now 5 and in kindergarten.

The boy's father had signed a written consent form for surgery.
