The so-called post-laparoscopic algesia is a specific impairment of about 63% of the patients who undergo laparoscopic surgical operations. This impairment takes the form of mild to moderate shoulder pain. Eliminating the causes of pain has a clear advantage over symptomatic treatment using analgetics, a fact worth a good consideration especially with the(More)
Inhibin and FSH maintain a dynamic inverse relationship throughout the rat estrous cycle. In particular, inhibin alpha- and beta A-subunit messenger RNAs (mRNAs) have been shown to be maximally expressed immediately after the midcycle gonadotropin surge, when both circulating estradiol (E2) and inhibin are also elevated. The current study was designed to(More)
We have measured changes in circulating immunoreactive (ir-) inhibin in male and female rats using an RIA with an antiserum raised against porcine inhibin alpha (1-26)-Gly-Tyr. The same synthetic peptide was used for standards and for the preparation of tracer. Serum ir-inhibin levels were significantly higher in intact female than in intact male rats (p(More)
BACKGROUND Sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB) is being investigated as an alternative to formal axillary dissection in early breast cancer. Avoiding the morbidity of unnecessary axillary dissection is seen as the main potential benefit of SLNB. Sentinel lymph node biopsy also allows enhanced pathological analysis. A series of 62 sentinel node (SN) biopsies(More)
Four- and 5-day cyclic mice housed with and without males, respectively, were autopsied at 10 a.m. on proestrus (P) or estrus (E) after no treatment, or after ovariectomy (Ovax) or sham Ovax at 10 a.m. or 4 p.m. on one of the preceding 3 days. Results indicate the ovarian must be in situ between 4 p.m. the day before P and 10 a.m. the day of P for a normal(More)
