Basic Fibroblast growth factor (FGF2) is an important stimulatory modulator of satellite cells in the skeletal muscle, which play a cardinal role in muscle growth and repair.

As men age, serum testosterone levels decrease. This reduction in testosterone levels may cause symptoms leading to hypogonadism. In addition, the presence of a varicocele can impair Leydig cell funct...
Idiopathic hypogonadotropic hypogonadism (IHH) is often caused by hyposecretion of gonadotropin and consequently affects male fertility. The patient with IHH has a smaller penis and testes with sperma...
Hypogonadism in boys is one of the commonest conditions encountered in paediatric endocrinology.
The prevalence of hypogonadism in HIV patients is still a matter of debate. Today, serum free testosterone (fTST) is thought to be more important than serum testosterone in the diagnosis of hypogonadi...
Evidence from clinical studies suggests that patients with low testosterone levels are at increased cardiovascular disease risk. Even though the exact mechanisms remain poorly understood, low plasma t...
The investigators are doing this research study to look at the relationship between testosterone (the main sex hormone in men) and insulin (the hormone that controls blood sugar levels) in...
Obesity can lead to low testosterone concentrations in young men. This study will study the effects of low testosterone in those men and the result of treating them with clomiphene.
The purpose of ZA-302 is to determine the effects of Androxal on morning testosterone and reproductive status in younger overweight men with acquired hypogonadotropic hypogonadism (confirm...
The investigators have preliminary data suggesting that obese patients with hypogonadotropic hypogonadism (HHG) have minimal benefit from testosterone therapy likely because of its convers...
Low testosterone production, known clinically as hypogonadism, appears to be common complication of type 2 diabetes, affecting one in three diabetic men. Hypogonadism is known to be associ...
Condition resulting from deficient gonadal functions, such as GAMETOGENESIS and the production of GONADAL STEROID HORMONES. It is characterized by delay in GROWTH, germ cell maturation, and development of secondary sex characteristics. Hypogonadism can be due to a deficiency of GONADOTROPINS (hypogonadotropic hypogonadism) or due to primary gonadal failure (hypergonadotropic hypogonadism).
A genetically heterogeneous disorder caused by hypothalamic GNRH deficiency and OLFACTORY NERVE defects. It is characterized by congenital HYPOGONADOTROPIC HYPOGONADISM and ANOSMIA, possibly with additional midline defects. It can be transmitted as an X-linked (GENETIC DISEASES, X-LINKED), an autosomal dominant, or an autosomal recessive trait.
Steroidal compounds related to TESTOSTERONE, the major mammalian male sex hormone. Testosterone congeners include important testosterone precursors in the biosynthetic pathways, metabolites, derivatives, and synthetic steroids with androgenic activities.
A potent androgenic metabolite of TESTOSTERONE. Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) is generated by a 5-alpha reduction of testosterone. Unlike testosterone, DHT cannot be aromatized to ESTRADIOL therefore DHT is considered a pure androgenic steroid.
A potent androgenic steroid and major product secreted by the LEYDIG CELLS of the TESTIS. Its production is stimulated by LUTEINIZING HORMONE from the PITUITARY GLAND. In turn, testosterone exerts feedback control of the pituitary LH and FSH secretion. Depending on the tissues, testosterone can be further converted to DIHYDROTESTOSTERONE or ESTRADIOL.
