Effect of ovarian hormones on serum adiponectin and resistin concentrations
Objective: To investigate the effect of ovarian hormones on adiponectin and resistin levels in women. Design: Experimental study. Setting: University hospital. Patient(s): Thirteen normally cycling women (7 in group I and ...
Ovarian control of pituitary sensitivity of luteinizing hormone secretion to gonadotropin-releasing hormone in women with the polycystic ovary syndrome
This study investigated the ovarian control of LH responsiveness to GnRH in anovulatory women with the polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). It is suggested that the enhanced pituitary sensitivity of LH secretion to GnRH in ...
The value of a single combined measurement of VEGF, glycodelin, progesterone, PAPP-A, HPL and LIF for differentiating between ectopic and abnormal intrauterine pregnancy
BACKGROUND: To evaluate whether serum concentrations of the non-placental markers vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), glycodelin (GLY) and progesterone (P) and the novel placental markers pregnancy-associated ...
The effect of estrogens on plasma ghrelin concentrations in women
Background: Data regarding the possible effects of estrogen on ghrelin secretion in humans are limited and contradictory. Aim: To investigate the effect of estradiol (E2) on ghrelin levels in normal pre- and post-menopausal ...
Blood ghrelin, resistin, and adiponectin concentrations during the normal menstrual cycle
Objective: To investigate changes of ghrelin, resistin, and adiponectin levels in the circulation during the normal menstrual cycle. Design: Longitudinal study. Setting: The study was conducted at a university hospital. ...
