Whether androgens, distinct from oestrogen, maintain bone health during male ageing has implications for understanding osteoporosis. We assessed associations of different sex hormones with incidence of any bone fracture or hip fracture in older men.

Preclinical studies suggest that amylin has a U-shaped dose-response association with risk of Alzheimer disease (AD). The association of plasma amylin with AD in humans is unknown.
Background and Purpose- Although exogenous hormone therapy (HT) use has been associated with increased risk of ischemic stroke in postmenopausal women, it remains unknown whether sex hormone levels co...
There is evidence for a bidirectional association between type 2 diabetes and Alzheimer's disease. Plasma β-amyloid (Aβ) is a potential biomarker for Alzheimer's disease. We aimed to investigate the...
Although previous studies have suggested a potential role of sex hormones in the etiology of colorectal cancer (CRC), no study has yet examined the associations between circulating sex hormones and su...
Effects of insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF1) and its binding proteins (IGFBPs) on ageing, and their interaction with sex hormones, remain uncertain. We examined associations of plasma IGF1, IGFBP1, ...
A prospective controlled single centre study designed to determine the association between the exposure to anesthetic agents and the pre and postoperative changes in plasma Neurofilament L...
Although lacking strong evidences, plasma transfusions are commonly used in critically ill neonates. To date, the relationships between plasma transfusions and nosocomial infection remain ...
The primary goal of this pilot study is to investigate the association between testosterone deficiency and the presence of abnormalities in the function of the autonomic nervous system. If...
Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) has been proven to process a strong association in patient of nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC). Monitoring plasma EBV DNA in NPC patients can provide reliable inform...
The present study is based on the hypothesis, that recurrent pregnancy loss (RPL) is associated with abnormal mannose binding lectin (MBL) plasma level. Secondarily, MBL plasma level may a...
Retinol binding proteins that circulate in the PLASMA. They are members of the lipocalin family of proteins and play a role in the transport of RETINOL from the LIVER to the peripheral tissues. The proteins are usually found in association with TRANSTHYRETIN.
Removal of plasma and replacement with various fluids, e.g., fresh frozen plasma, plasma protein fractions (PPF), albumin preparations, dextran solutions, saline. Used in treatment of autoimmune diseases, immune complex diseases, diseases of excess plasma factors, and other conditions.
The amount of PLASMA that perfuses the KIDNEYS per unit time, approximately 10% greater than effective renal plasma flow (RENAL PLASMA FLOW, EFFECTIVE). It should be differentiated from the RENAL BLOOD FLOW; (RBF), which refers to the total volume of BLOOD flowing through the renal vasculature, while the renal plasma flow refers to the rate of plasma flow (RPF).
The amount of PLASMA flowing to the parts of the KIDNEY that function in the production of urine. It is the amount of plasma perfusing the KIDNEY TUBULES per unit time, generally measured by P-AMINOHIPPURATE clearance. It should be differentiated from RENAL PLASMA FLOW which is approximately 10% greater than the effective renal plasma flow.
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.
Blood is a specialized bodily fluid that delivers necessary substances to the body's cells (in animals) – such as nutrients and oxygen – and transports waste products away from those same cells. In vertebrates, it is composed of blo...
Diabetes Diabetes Endocrine Disorders Obesity Oxycontin Renal Disease Thyroid Disorders Endocrinology is the study of the endocrine glands and the hormones that they secrete (Oxford Medical Dictionary). There are several g...
Osteoporosis is a disease in which the bones become extremely porous, are subject to fracture, and heal slowly, occurring especially in women following menopause and often leading to curvature of the spine from vertebral collapse. Follow and track&n...
