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 ...
Uterine perforation as a rare complication of attempted pregnancy termination with misoprostol: A case report
BACKGROUND: Abortion induced by drugs is now a viable alternative to surgically induced abortion, but it can cause severe complications. CASE: Products of conception were found in the peritoneal cavity after administration ...
Oestradiol stimulates prolactin secretion in women through oestrogen receptors
Objective To examine the effects of clomiphene and raloxifene on basal and GnRH-induced prolactin (PRL) secretion in postmenopausal women. Design Postmenopausal women participated in two experimental procedures a month ...
Expression of human serum albumin (HSA) mRNA in human granulosa cells: Potential correlation of the 95 amino acid long carboxyl terminal of HSA to gonadotrophin surge-attenuating factor
Introduction: According to previous studies, gonadotrophin surge-attenuating factor (GnSAF), which is assumed to be produced in human granulosa cells, has a homology with the carboxyl terminal of the human serum albumin ...
Rapid effect of progesterone on transepithelial resistance of human fetal membranes: Evidence for non-genomic action
1. The factors that regulate human fetal membrane transport mechanisms are unknown. The aim of the present study was to investigate the effect of progesterone on transepithelial electrical resistance (R-TE) in the human ...
