Low Dose Human Chorionic Gonadotropin: Influence on the Endometrium

2014-08-27 03:19:23 | BioPortfolio


The purpose of the present study is to assess the influence of the administration of low dose hCG on the endometrium. The study is a randomised trial where 2 groups of patients, undergoing a gonadotropin-releasing hormone antagonist protocol for in vitro fertilization, are studied. In addition to the histological findings, by analysing the correlation of the morphological pattern and gene expression profile of human endometrium on the day of oocyte retrieval in patients of both treatment groups, the investigators want to study the implantation potential.

The Value of Addition of Human Menopausal Gonadotropin Drug Following Oocytes Retrieval in IVF Cycles

The aim of this study is to test the hypothesis that addition of daily small dose of human menopausal gonadotropin (HMG) drug following oocytes retrieval could improve the fertility outcom...

Human Menopausal Gonadotropin Combining With Human Chorionic Gonadotropin Treat Congenital Hypogonadotropic Hypogonadism

Observe the therapeutic efficacy of human menopausal gonadotropin combining with human chorionic gonadotropin in adolescent boys with congenital hypogonadotropic hypogonadism.

Endometrial Injury for Unexplained Infertility

One hundred and twenty women with unexplained infertility were included in the study. Divided randomly into two groups: Group I: (60 patients): (control group) Group II (60 patient...

Supplementation With Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG) During Controlled Ovarian Stimulation With Recombinant Follicle-Stimulating Hormone (FSH) for In Vitro Fertilisation

The purpose of this trial is to study whether addition of different doses of human chorionic gonadotropins during controlled ovarian stimulation for patients undergoing IVF will improve th...

Second Step Protocol in Poor Ovarian Responder (POR)

Reduced ovarian reserve and the consequent poor ovarian response are very recurent in infertile patients, indeed a percentage of 10%-24% of couples addressed to infertility program may be ...

Stimulation of spermatogenesis in men with hypogonadotropic hypogonadism.

Hypogonadotropic hypogonadism (HH) is characterizes by infertility. In patients with congenital HH (CHH) is caused by the deficient production, secretion or action of gonadotropin-releasing hormone (G...

Gonadotropin Releasing Hormone Agonist Final Oocyte Maturation and Human Chorionic Gonadotropin as Exclusive Luteal Support in Normal Responders.

Gonadotropin releasing hormone (GnRH) agonist triggering results in an endogenous gonadotropin flare. Although it effectively stimulates ovulation, GnRH agonist triggers results in an early luteolysis...

Preventing ovarian failure associated with chemotherapy.

Alkylating chemotherapy is often used to treat pre-menopausal women for various malignancies and autoimmune diseases. Chemotherapy-associated ovarian failure is a potential consequence of this treatme...

Presence of human herpes virus 1-thymidine kinase in testis of azoospermic infertile herpes-infected patients.

Infection with human herpes virus 1 (HHV1) is a suspected cause of human male infertility. However, the correlation between HHV1 infection and infertility is still unclear. We have previously generate...

Elevated basal luteinizing hormone does not impair the outcome of human menopausal gonadotropin and medroxyprogesterone acetate treatment cycles.

The potential effects of high basal luteinizing hormone (LH) levels on human reproduction were controversial. To demonstrate the effects of elevated basal LH levels on the outcome of patients undergoi...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Extracts of urine from menopausal women that contain high concentrations of pituitary gonadotropins, FOLLICLE STIMULATING HORMONE and LUTEINIZING HORMONE. Menotropins are used to treat infertility. The FSH:LH ratio and degree of purity vary in different preparations.

The beta subunit of luteinizing hormone. It is a 15-kDa glycopolypeptide with structure similar to the beta subunit of the placental chorionic gonadatropin (CHORIONIC GONADOTROPIN, BETA SUBUNIT, HUMAN) except for the additional 31 amino acids at the C-terminal of CG-beta. Full biological activity of LH requires the non-covalently bound heterodimers of an alpha and a beta subunit. Mutation of the LHB gene causes HYPOGONADISM and infertility.

The beta subunit of human CHORIONIC GONADOTROPIN. Its structure is similar to the beta subunit of LUTEINIZING HORMONE, except for the additional 30 amino acids at the carboxy end with the associated carbohydrate residues. HCG-beta is used as a diagnostic marker for early detection of pregnancy, spontaneous abortion (ABORTION, SPONTANEOUS); ECTOPIC PREGNANCY; HYDATIDIFORM MOLE; CHORIOCARCINOMA; or DOWN SYNDROME.

A gonadotropic glycoprotein hormone produced primarily by the PLACENTA. Similar to the pituitary LUTEINIZING HORMONE in structure and function, chorionic gonadotropin is involved in maintaining the CORPUS LUTEUM during pregnancy. CG consists of two noncovalently linked subunits, alpha and beta. Within a species, the alpha subunit is virtually identical to the alpha subunits of the three pituitary glycoprotein hormones (TSH, LH, and FSH), but the beta subunit is unique and confers its biological specificity (CHORIONIC GONADOTROPIN, BETA SUBUNIT, HUMAN).

Corneal and conjunctival dryness due to deficient tear production, predominantly in menopausal and post-menopausal women. Filamentary keratitis or erosion of the conjunctival and corneal epithelium may be caused by these disorders. Sensation of the presence of a foreign body in the eye and burning of the eyes may occur.
