A study of semen parameters with emphasis on sperm morphology in a fertile population: An attempt to develop clinical thresholds
The aim of the study was to determine the semen parameters of a proven fertile population and to compare these parameters with that of a subfertile group in the same region. Sixty-nine fertile male patients were studied ...
Comparable clinical efficacy and tolerability of 20 mg pantoprazole and 20 mg omeprazole in patients with grade I reflux oesophagitis
Background: Several clinical trials have shown that pantoprazole (40 mg) and omeprazole (40 or 20 mg) have similar efficacy and safety in the treatment of grade II-IV reflux oesophagitis (Savary-Miller classification). ...
Genotype-phenotype correlation in the long-QT syndrome: Gene-specific triggers for life-threatening arrhythmias
Background - The congenital long-QT syndrome (LQTS) is caused by mutations on several genes, all of which encode cardiac ion channels. The progressive understanding of the electrophysiological consequences of these mutations ...
Blood pressure patterns in pregnant patients on oral ketanserin
Background. Ketanserin, a selective serotonin-2 receptor antagonist, decreases systolic blood pressure (SBP) and diastolic blood pressure (DBP) in non-pregnant patients with hypertension, but not in normotensive subjects. ...
Factors influencing successful closure with indomethacin of the patent ductus arteriosus in premature infants
The incidence of persistent patency of the ductus arteriosus (PDA) is inversely related to birth weight. APDA contributes to pathological conditions in the neonate and timely closure in these low-birth-weight infants could ...
No clinical benefit of adding cisapride to pantoprazole for treatment of gastro-oesophageal reflux disease
Objective Although a proton pump inhibitor (PPI) and a prokinetic drug are often combined for the medical treatment of gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD), there are few well-conducted clinical studies on the efficacy ...
Clinical importance of zona pellucida-induced acrosome reaction and its predictive value for IVF
The study aimed to establish zona pellucida induced acrosome reaction response (ZIAR) among 35 couples with normal and G-pattern sperm morphology and repeated poor fertilization results during assisted reproduction treatment. ...
Predictive value of normal sperm morphology in intrauterine insemination (IUI): A structured literature review
The aim of the study was to conduct a structured review of the literature published on the use of normal sperm morphology, as an indicator of male fertility potential in intrauterine insemination (IUI) programmes. Published ...
