The pineal hormone melatonin (MLT) is secreted in a circadian rhythm with high serum levels during nighttime and low serum levels during daytime. Several authors have reported an altered secretion pattern of MLT in patients with pineal tumors and have proposed that MLT may be used as a tumor marker. In nine patients, a pineal region tumor was diagnosed by(More)
High-intensity exercise leads to an increased risk of upper respiratory tract infections in athletes, which had been related to an exercise-induced impairment of neutrophil function. In this study, several indices of neutrophil function were analysed before and after a biathlon and the effect of oral vitamin C on neutrophil function was determined. Six(More)
To assess the effect of epidural block on plasma catecholamines and cortisol during labour and delivery, plasma epinephrine, norepinephrine and cortisol levels were determined in 26 healthy parturients, all of whom delivered vaginally (18 received an epidural block, eight had meperidine 50 mg intramuscularly). We found a significant drop of plasma(More)
420 clinical and serological examinations prior to surgery and during follow-up were performed in 30 patients suffering from ovarian cancer. The population consisted of three FIGO stage Ia, nine stage Ic, four stage II and fourteen stage III cases. Serous carcinoma of the ovary, mucinous carcinoma and other kinds of ovarian cancer were found in 16, 9 and 5(More)
Repeated blood sampling at 10-minute intervals over a 4-hour period (15.00 until 19.00) for simultaneous determination of FSH, LH and testosterone was carried out in 7 normospermic men and 8 patients presenting with idiopathic oligozoospermia. Fluctuations of LH and testosterone were observed within the 4-hour sampling period. Only minor alterations of FSH(More)
Bei 29 Patientinnen, die in unserem IVF Programm eingebunden waren, wurde der Zyklus vor der HMG/HCG Stimulierung mit einem GnRH-Agonisten, dem Decapeptyl Depot 4 mg supprimiert, um einerseits die Ausfallquote unter der Stimulierung zu senken, andererseits eine bessere zeitliche Steuerbarkeit zu erreichen. Ebenso wurde untersucht, inwieweit eine(More)
Rapid gastric emptying and exaggerated plasma concentrations of the insulinotropic hormone GLP-1 precede reactive hypoglycemia after oral glucose in gastrectomy patients. We suspected that the plasma volume drop associated with rapid gastric emptying (early dumping) would be accompanied by elevated plasma concentrations of norepinephrine. In order to study(More)
