The treatment of acromegalics with somatostatin analogs requires continuous sc infusion using pumps or several sc injections daily. Long-acting formulations (BIM-LA) of BIM 23014 (BIM) using delayed microcapsules may provide a more convenient form of therapy. Fourteen acromegalics whose GH secretion had not been normalized by transphenoidal surgery(More)
Of the total number of breast cancers approx. 30-50% are hormone-dependent and estradiol is one of the main factors of cancerization. Consequently, the control of this hormone inside the cancer cell is of capital importance because it is well established that the inhibition of estradiol biosynthesis can have a positive effect on the evolution of the(More)
Antiestrogens, such as tamoxifen, have a direct antitumor action and are widely used in cancer therapy. The direct antitumor action of GnRH analogs has been documented in bothin vitro and clinical studies. GnRH analog direct action could therefore provide an alternative approach in postmenopausal patients developing antiestrogen resistance, a frequent cause(More)
The steroid content of 72 follicular fluids (FF) obtained from 42 women subjected to ovulation induction with the luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone analogue D-Trp6 and human menopausal gonadotropin was studied in terms of the evolution of in vitro fertilization (IVF) and embryo transfer (ET) results. The FF were classified into several categories based(More)
INTRODUCTION Being an easy-to-use (eight items) quality of life questionnaire specific to GERD, the Reflux-Qual Short form (RQS) was developed for use in everyday practice. The purpose of this study was to assess the psychometric properties of the RQS. METHODS AND MATERIALS The reliability of the RQS was measured by the Cronbach's alpha coefficient and(More)
The administration of GnRH agonists and antagonists suppresses pituitary LH secretion. However little is known about their effects on endogenous GnRH secretion. To determine if GnRH analogs act on GnRH secretion through a short or ultrashort loop feedback mechanism, experiments were performed to analyze GnRH secretion in hypophyseal portal blood of(More)
We assessed the efficacy of a natural clay (smectite) on the frequency and the duration of acid (pH less than 4) and very acid (pH less than 3) gastroesophageal reflux (GER) measured by 24-hour continuous pH recording (CPR). Twenty newborn infants were enrolled in this double-blind controlled study owing to pathological CPR in supine position. After(More)
The inhibin content and aromatase inhibitor activity (AIA) of 72 follicular fluids (FF) obtained from 42 women undergoing in vitro fertilization (IVF) and embryo transfer (ET) were studied as a function of IVF ET outcome. Inhibin levels were determined by bioassay (BA) and RIA; AIA was measured by BA. The inhibin content of follicles characterized as(More)
OBJECTIVE To discuss the pharmacokinetics, spectrum of activity, clinical trials, and adverse effects of cefprozil, cefpodoxime proxetil, loracarbef, cefixime, and ceftibuten, an investigational cephalosporin. DATA SOURCES Literature was identified by a MEDLINE search from 1986 to January 1995. STUDY SELECTION Randomized, controlled studies were(More)
