Name: Reproduction, fertility, and development
This study investigates whether an adjuvant gonadotrophin-releasing hormone agonist (GnRHa) trigger with human chorionic gonadotrophin (HCG) improves fresh intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) cycl...
Testicular growth and spermatogenesis: new goals for pubertal hormone replacement in boys with hypogonadotrophic hypogonadism? A multicentre prospective study of hCG/rFSH treatment outcomes during adolescence.
Testosterone treatment for pubertal induction in boys with hypogonadotrophic hypogonadism (HH) provides virilisation, but does not induce testicular growth or fertility. Larger studies evaluating the ...
The role of progesterone in maintaining pregnancy is well known in the bovine. Subtle differences exist between dairy and beef cows because of differing concentrations of progesterone during recrudesc...
We recently showed that progesterone treatment can reduce lesion size and behavioral deficits after moderate-to-severe bilateral injury to the medial prefrontal cortex in immature male rats. Whether t...
Ectopic pregnancy, though rare, is an important cause of female morbidity and mortality and early, effective treatment is critical. Systemic methotrexate has become widely accepted as a safe and effec...
The follicular phase of the menstrual cycle involves the hourly release of gonadotropin-releasing hormone, which binds to receptors on the gonadotropes. This results in the secretion of fo...
Preliminary reports showed that hormonal treatment may improve the chance of retrieving viable testicular sperm from men with NOA. It was generally believed that gonadotrophin treatment wo...
The purpose of this trial is to study whether addition of different doses of human chorionic gonadotropins during controlled ovarian stimulation for patients undergoing IVF will improve th...
Intrauterine injection of hCG around the time of implantation may increase endometrial Treg cells and improve implantation. It has been demonstrated that regulatory T cells expand during p...
The aim of this study is to assess the role of AMH in prediction of poor ovarian response as well as the relation between ESR2 (+1730G>A) (rs4986938), FSHR p.Thr307Ala (c.919A>G, rs6165) a...
A non-estrogenic contraceptive which is a weak progestin with strong anti-progesterone properties. It is effective if used once a week orally or can also be used in intravaginal devices.
Specific proteins found in or on cells of progesterone target tissues that specifically combine with progesterone. The cytosol progesterone-receptor complex then associates with the nucleic acids to initiate protein synthesis. There are two kinds of progesterone receptors, A and B. Both are induced by estrogen and have short half-lives.
The beta subunit of human CHORIONIC GONADOTROPIN. Its structure is similar to the beta subunit of LUTEINIZING HORMONE, except for the additional 30 amino acids at the carboxy end with the associated carbohydrate residues. HCG-beta is used as a diagnostic marker for early detection of pregnancy, spontaneous abortion (ABORTION, SPONTANEOUS); ECTOPIC PREGNANCY; HYDATIDIFORM MOLE; CHORIOCARCINOMA; or DOWN SYNDROME.
Trophoblastic hyperplasia associated with normal gestation, or molar pregnancy. It is characterized by the swelling of the CHORIONIC VILLI and elevated human CHORIONIC GONADOTROPIN. Hydatidiform moles or molar pregnancy may be categorized as complete or partial based on their gross morphology, histopathology, and karyotype.
Compounds that interact with PROGESTERONE RECEPTORS in target tissues to bring about the effects similar to those of PROGESTERONE. Primary actions of progestins, including natural and synthetic steroids, are on the UTERUS and the MAMMARY GLAND in preparation for and in maintenance of PREGNANCY.
Prostate cancer (cancer de prostata) Prostate cancer (cancer de prostata) is a form of cancer that develops in the prostate, a gland in the male reproductive system. Most prostate cancers are slow growing; however, there are cases of aggressive prostat...
