Changes in gonadotrophin response to gonadotrophin releasing hormone in normal women following bilateral ovariectomy
OBJECTIVE Pituitary responsiveness to GnRH varies throughout the normal menstrual cycle, We have investigated whether there are differences in the ovarian mechanisms which regulate gonadotrophin secretion between the ...
Leptin concentrations in the follicular phase of spontaneous cycles and cycles superovulated with follicle stimulating hormone
It has been reported that oestradiol may play a role in the production of leptin from adipocytes, To investigate this relationship further, nine normally ovulating women were studied during two menstrual cycles, i.e. an ...
Luteinizing hormone response to gonadotrophin-releasing hormone in normal women undergoing ovulation induction with urinary or recombinant follicle stimulating hormone
Oestradiol enhances pituitary sensitivity to gonadotrophin-releasing hormone (GnRH) in normal women, while in women undergoing ovulation induction the putative factor gonadotrophin surge attenuating factor (GnSAF) attenuates ...
Changes in pituitary response to gonadotropin releasing hormone following bilateral ovariectomy in women treated with follicle-stimulating hormone
Superovulation induction in women attenuates the pituitary response to gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH). The aim of this study was to assess the duration of the suppressing activity of the ovaries on the pituitary. ...
Effect of gonadotrophin-releasing hormone agonist treatment on growth hormone secretion in women with polycystic ovarian syndrome
The suppression of the pituitary-gonadal axis by the administration of gonadotrophin-releasing hormone agonists (GnRH-a) is used occasionally as an adjunct therapy with gonadotrophins for ovulation induction in women with ...
Growth hormone response to thyrotrophin releasing hormone in women with polycystic ovarian syndrome
Recent clinical studies have suggested that women with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) may have disturbances of growth hormone (GH) kinetics and the GH/insulin-like growth factor (IGF)-I system. The knowledge that in ...
