Luteinizing hormone (LH), a gonadotropin, stimulates the gonads - in males, the testes, and in females, the ovaries. It is essential for reproduction, and secreted from cells in the anterior pituita...
Viruses are implicated in the causes of some cancers, and may in time offer potential therapy for other forms of cancer. An oncovirus is a virus that can cause cancer. Worldwide, the WHO Internati...
Thrombopoiesis stimulating agents are under evaluation for treatment of idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) and for prevention of severe thrombocytopenia induced by chemotherapy.
An antibody, also known as an immunoglobulin, is a large Y-shaped protein used by the immune system to identify and neutralize foreign objects such as bacteria and viruses. The antibody recognizes a...
(MedPage Today) -- The era of unending steroid treatment is over
The actions of a hormone that controls maturation of fat cells may help identify how high-fat diets, stress, and some steroid medications cause obesity.
Steroid hormone receptors are well known to regulate various aspects of animal physiology by acting as transcriptional regulators in the nucleus. However, it is now evident that these receptors can al...
Force-induced tautomerization in a single porphycene molecule is investigated on a Cu(110) surface at 5 K by using non-contact atomic force microscopy. The force needed to trigger the tautomerization ...
Most clinicians are unaware of the scope of anabolic steroid abuse, and rarely ask patients about it. Medscape Family Medicine
What you need to knowAsk about anabolic steroid use in a non-judgemental way, strongly encourage cessation, and explain the side effects and long term health risksMale patients (
A serious childhood cancer takes advantage of a quality control mechanism that usually protects cells from stress-induced damage to propel tumor growth, according to a new study led by researche...
Osteonecrosis of the femoral head (ONFH) is a common hip joint disease, and steroid-induced ONFH accounts for a large number of cases. Here, we examined eight previously-identified single-nucleotide p...
This review highlights the principal effects of steroid hormones at central and peripheral levels in the neuroendocrine axis. The data discussed here points out the principal role of estrogens and tes...
Animal steroid hormones regulate gene transcription through genomic pathways by binding to nuclear receptors. These steroid hormones also rapidly increase intracellular calcium and cyclic adenosine mo...
