Effects of α2- and β-adrenoceptor agonists on growth hormone secretion following lesion of the noradrenergic system of the rat
The aim of the present investigation was to lesion the noradrenergic system and to measure the effect on growth hormone (GH) secretion following peripheral administration of α2- and β-adrenoceptor agonists. Direct injection ...
The role of oocyte maturity in the treatment of infertility because of teratozoospermia and normozoospermia with gamete intrafallopian transfer
Objective: To determine the effect of oocyte maturity on pregnancy rate (PR) in patients undergoing gamete intrafallopian transfer (GIFT) procedures for infertility and in whom male partners had either normozoospermia or ...
Ultrastructural parameters of fertile cryopreserved human sperm
Two hundred and forty-four cryopreserved semen samples were used for artificial insemination by donor (AID). All samples were examined for motility and concentration. Thirty of the samples resulted in pregnancies. These ...
Increasing role of angiography and segmental artery embolization in the management of renal stab wounds
During a 5-year period 93 patients with stab wounds involving the upper urinary tract were treated. Of these patients 79 were treated initially at our department (group 1) and 14 were referred with complications after ...
Systemic calciphylaxis presenting as a painful, proximal myopathy
A renal transplant patient who presented with a painful, proximal myopathy due to systemic calciphylaxis is described. The myopathy preceded the characteristic skin and soft tissue necrosis. Systemic calciphylaxis should ...
Central effects of the preservative, methylparaben. In vivo activation of cAMP-specific phosphodiesterase and reduction of cortical cAMP
The phenolic preservative, methylparaben (MPB), has in the past been demonstrated to harbour definite pharmacological effects. In an attempt to examine the possible central effects of MPB, notably on cyclic nucleotides and ...
Regional distribution of monoamines and dopamine D1- and D2-receptors in the striatum of the ratRegional distribution of monoamines and dopamine D1- and D2-receptors in the striatum of the rat
Dopamine (DA) D1- and D2-receptor densities were determined in 18 discrete areas of the caudate-putamen-globus pallidus of male Wistar rats and compared to local DA concentrations. All three parameters were found to decrease ...

Skin conditions in epileptics
The prevalence of skin and mucous membrane conditions occurring in 173 epileptics between the ages of 6 and 19 years was compared with that of an age-matched group of 211 non-epileptics. The most frequently used anticonvulsants, ...
Regional effects of neurotensin on the electrically stimulated release of [3H]dopamine and [14C]acetylcholine in the rat nucleus accumbens
This study has shown that neurotensin (NT) increases the electrically stimulated release of [3H]DA to a similar extent in all but the extreme caudolateral area of the rat nucleus accumbens and appears to modulate DA release ...
