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 ...
Novel aspects of the endocrinology of the menstrual cycle
Ovarian control of gonadotrophin secretion is normally achieved via the feedback mechanisms mediated by oestradiol and progesterone. Evidence has been provided that nonsteroidal substances, such as inhibin A and B, participate ...
Blockage of ghrelin-induced prolactin secretion in women by bromocriptine
Objective: To investigate the effect of bromocriptine on ghrelin-induced PRL secretion in women. Design: Longitudinal study. Setting: University hospital. Patient(s): Ten healthy, normally cycling women. Intervention(s): ...
