Effect of an OT antagonist on the control of the midcycle LH surge in women
P>Objective Data in women regarding the role of OT in LH secretion during the LH surge are conflicting. As in previous studies blood samples for LH measurements were taken infrequently, we re-examined this matter in women ...
Oxytocin is not important for the control of gonadotrophin secretion in the late follicular phase of the cycle
Objective To study the role of oxytocin in basal and GnRH-induced gonadotrophin secretion in normal women. Design Normal women were studied in three cycles. When the diameter of the leading follicle was 15-16 mm, the women ...
Inhibitory Effect of Submaximal Doses of Ghrelin on Gonadotropin Secretion in Women
The effect of ghrelin on gonadotropin secretion has been equivocal. Recent data have shown an inhibitory effect of repeated injections of ghrelin on nocturnal LH and FSH secretion in women. The aim of this study was to ...
Effect of Ghrelin and Thyrotropin-releasing Hormone on Prolactin Secretion in Normal Women
It is known that ghrelin stimulates the secretion of prolactin in women. The aim of this study was to examine the effect of exogenous thyrotropin-releasing hormone (TRH) on ghrelin-induced prolactin release. Ten healthy ...
Effect of Anti-Mullerian hormone (AMH) and bone morphogenetic protein 15 (BMP-15) on steroidogenesis in primary-cultured human luteinizing granulosa cells through Smad5 signalling
To determine if there is any effect of AMH and BMP-15 on estradiol and progesterone production from primary-cultured human luteinizing granulosa cells, to delineate what is the effect of FSH on their actions and which are ...
Polycystic ovaries and obesity
Almost 50% of the women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) are obese. Obesity in PCOS affects reproduction via various mechanisms. Hyperandrogenism, increased luteinizing hormone (LH) and insulin resistance play a pivotal ...
