A major problem in IVF procedures is a high rate of induced iatrogenic complications including multiple gestations. Until now, transfer of at least three embryos followed by the subsequent elective reduction of triplet or ...
In vitro responsiveness of human post-menopausal myometrium to endothelin-1 and ovarian steroids
It has been shown in vitro that endothelin 1 (ET1) differentially affects the human myometrial contractility according to the hormonal profile of women. Our purpose was to test the hypothesis that ovarian steroids influence ...
Alternate day and daily administration of GnRH antagonist may prevent premature luteinization to a similar extent during FSH treatment
BACKGROUND: This randomized controlled trial was designed to evaluate whether a GnRH antagonist given every other day could prevent premature luteinization in women undergoing IVF/ICSI treatment. METHODS: A total of 73 ...
Leptin in pregnancy
Leptin is a 16-kDa polypeptide, encoded in humans by the LEP gene. This protein is probably involved in the regulation of ovarian function, oocyte maturation and embryo development, and in the implantation process. During ...
In vitro effects of endothelin-1 on the contractility of myometrium obtained from pre- and postmenopausal women
This study was conducted to evaluate the responsiveness of human nonpregnant myometrium to endothelin 1 (ET1) (10(-10) M-10(-6) M) and KCl (80 mM) in relation to the hormonal profile of the women, who were allocated into ...
