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 ...
Polymorphisms of the endothelial nitric oxide synthase (NOS3) gene in preeclampsia: a candidate-gene association study
Background: The endothelial nitric oxide synthase gene (NOS3) has been proposed as a candidate gene for preeclampsia. However, studies so far have produced conflicting results. This study examines the specific role of ...
Misoprostol prior to hysteroscopy in premenopausal and post-menopausal women. A systematic review and meta-analysis
Although several randomized controlled trials (RCTs) have examined the effect of misoprostol prior to hysteroscopy for cervical dilatation, no solid conclusion has been reached. We therefore set out to perform a meta-analysis ...
