DHEA is an adrenal deriven androgen precourser. The impact of DHEA substitution therapy in adrenal failure is unknown as well as the physiologically effects of DHEA is unknown. Effects of ...
The purpose of this study is to compare the effect of pre-IVF cycles treatment with and without DHEA on the ovarian reserve markers, the number of oocytes obtained and in vitro fertilizati...
The purpose of the study is to examine whether DHEA replacement therapy is associated with beneficial changes in body composition (i.e., increases in lean mass and bone mass, and decreases...
The purpose of the study is to evaluate the systemic bioavailability of DHEA and its metabolites and the pharmacokinetics of vaginal suppositories at four different DHEA concentration.
DHEA supplementation has been used in women with infertility and diminished ovarian reserve. There is a small report in 5 women with POF that benefited from the use of DHEA over several mo...
Neuroactive steroids, including testosterone, dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) and its sulfate (DHEA-S) might play an important role in the pathophysiology of schizophrenia. Therefore, we performed a sys...
In this study, a method for the efficient production of dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) from phytosterols in a vegetable oil/aqueous two-phase system by Mycobacterium sp. was developed. After the 3-hydr...
Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), a C19 steroid synthesized predominantly by the adrenal cortex, and its sulfated precursor (DHEAS) has antiglucocorticoid and immunoprotective properties. DHEA is importa...
Chronic infection with the hepatitis C virus induces liver fibrosis, but it is unknown why some patients progress to advanced fibrosis while others remain with mild disease. Recently, an inverse assoc...
Ovarian aging, which leads to diminished ovarian reserve and decreased oocyte quality, is highly associated with poor reproductive outcomes. It has been suggested that dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) mi...
A major C19 steroid produced by the ADRENAL CORTEX. It is also produced in small quantities in the TESTIS and the OVARY. Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) can be converted to TESTOSTERONE; ANDROSTENEDIONE; ESTRADIOL; and ESTRONE. Most of DHEA is sulfated (DEHYDROEPIANDROSTERONE SULFATE) before secretion.
