This current chart review study was designed to investigate the incidence of breast cancer in women treated with subcutaneous testosterone therapy for symptoms of hormone deficiency.

Frozen Embryo Transfer With GnRH-antagonist Trial

The fertility treatment in vitro fertilisation (IVF), sometimes including intra-cytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), involves the creation of embryos in a laboratory. These embryos are then transferred into the womb of the patient with the hope of a resulting pregnancy and live birth. Embryos can also be cryopreserved (frozen) and stored, and then later replaced in a cycle c...

Adjuvant Endocrine Therapy in Early Stage Breast Cancer: Adherence and Clinical Outcome

Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women in Norway. In 2016, 3402 new cases were diagnosed (3371 in women). Breast cancer is still the second most common cause of death from cancer among women with 585 breast cancer deaths in Norway in 2015. The majority of the patients (70-75 %) belong to the Luminal subtypes, which comprise the hormone receptor (oestrogen recep...

Innovative Treatment in Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia

This is a controlled, open study designed to compare the effects of dual-release hydrocortisone preparations versus conventional glucocorticoid therapy on clinical, anthropometric parameters, metabolic syndrome, hormonal profile, bone status, quality of life, reproductive, sexual and psychological functions and treatment compliance in patients affected by congenital adrenal...

Microglial Activation in Narcolepsy Type 1: Positron Emission Tomography (PET) Study in [18F] DPA-714

Type 1 narcolepsy (NT1) is a chronic sleep disorder caused by the selective and irreversible loss of neurons from the hypothalamus, which synthesizes a neurotransmitter: hypocretin (Hcrt) / orexin. The exact cause of this destruction is still unknown, but the autoimmune hypothesis is strongly favored, involving the interaction of genetic and environmental factors. The treat...

Personality Disorders and Substance Use Disorders in a Sexual Context in the Man Having Sex With Other Men Population

Chemsex refers to the use of psychoactive drugs in a sexual context, mainly cathinones, GHB/GBL, methamphetamine, cocaine and ketamine. This can cause infectious or psychiatric complications, addictions, and often goes with high risk sexual behaviours. Recent studies have highlighted the relationship between personality disorders, substance use disorders and risky sexual be...

Comparison of Intramuscular and Intravenous ACTH Stimulation Test in Normal Volunteers

Cosyntropin (synthetic ACTH) stimulation test is considered the optimal test for diagnosis of primary and long-standing secondary adrenal insufficiency. The standard cosyntropin stimulation test is performed by administering 250 µg cosyntropin intravenously. Serum cortisol is measured before, and at 30 and 60 minutes after the bolus injection. Peak cortisol levels below 5...

Gonadal Function in Young to Middle Aged HIV-infected Men

HIV infection is associated to premature decline of serum testosterone. However, prevalence and biochemical characterization of hypogonadism in HIV-infected men are still to be well defined. HIV-infection is strongly associated to erectile dysfunction in men, but preliminary data suggest that it is poorly associated with serum testosterone in this context.

Follicular Fluid Sialic Acid Levels in IVF Cycles

This cross-sectional study was conducted at the Reproductive Endocrinology and Invitro Fertilization (REI) unit of our hospital, following the approval of the hospital's ethics committee. Patients who underwent gonadotropin-releasing hormone agonist (GnRHa) treatment were enrolled in the study. During oocyte retrieval, follicular fluids of mature follicles (≥18 mm) were c...

Rare Cystic Benign Adrenal Incidentalomas

Benign complex cystic and vascular adrenal tumors comprise a group of lesions characterized by significant rarity. But, their detection is increasing due to improved radiologic imaging techniques. Nevertheless, they are still conflicting with other lesions. the investigators reviewed their experience with complex cystic benign adrenal tumors in adults, review previous repor...

Hormone Evaluation in Artificial Reproductive Technology

The aim is to be able to predict the hormonal response according to gonadotropin receptor genotype and hormone type used for treatment of women undergoing in vitro fertilization or egg donation. Outcome will be measured as pregnancy success, live born babies and unwanted side effects.

Cortisol Levels as a Measure of Accumulated Physiological Stress in ICU Patients Undergoing Mechanical Ventilation

Critical illness is a situation of severe and prolonged stress for patients with mechanical ventilation (MV). Between 40-80% of these patients present the Post-ICU syndrome, a set of physical, cognitive, psychological alterations at hospital discharge. In more than a third of the ICU survivors, these sequelae become chronic being observed months and even years after ICU sta...

Endocrine Changes in Adults Undergoing Cardiac Surgery

In this prospective study the investigators want to measure the serum level changes of the thyroid hormones (thyroid-stimulating hormone, reverse triiodothyronine, serum free T4), brain natriuretic peptide (BNP), testosterone and sexual hormone binding protein (SHBG) in adults undergoing cardiac surgery and search for correlations different psychosocial factors and analyze ...

Testosterone Therapy in Castration Resistant Prostate Cancer

This is an open-labeled, single-arm, interventional pilot study. It is being done to determine the feasibility of the administration of transdermal testosterone alternating with enzalutamide, as well as the safety and efficacy.

Correlation of Serum Adropin to Testosterone and Adiponectin in Obese Men

Obesity is associated with low testosterone in men and with dyslipidemia. Adropin hormone is negatively correlated with body mass index and is associated with dyslipidemia. correlation between adropin and testosterone will be evaluated.

Micro RNA Profile in the Ovarian Follicle Fluid of Transgender Men

The effects of gender transitioning, particularly the effects of testosterone exposure in transgender men, on the oocyte and embryo development are largely unknown. Based on prior studies suggesting that the extracellular RNAs secreted by the ovarian follicle cells reflect the oocyte and embryo biological state, the investigators propose to use these extracellular RNAs to g...

Psychiatric Disorders in Children With Psychogenic Cough

The study aims to evaluate psychiatric disorders and clinical features of children with psychogenic cough. Psychiatric disorders are assessed via a semi-structured interview (Kiddie Schedule for Affective Disorders and Schizophrenia) and clinical features are investigated via sociodemographic form, which was developped by researchers. Investigator planned to compare psychia...

Testosterone in Bariatric Patients

Bariatric surgery is an effective method in the treatment of severe obesity and type 2 diabetes mellitus achieving high remission rates. However, weight loss also causes loss of skeletal muscle and bone mass which at least partly could be prevented by exercise and dietary intervention although the counselling of obese and sedentary individuals in order to increase their phy...

Postoperative Cognitive Dysfunction in Patients Undergoing Pituitary Removal Surgery
