The endocrine, genital, and cognitive--affective responses of sexually functional men were compared under sexually arousing and non-arousing conditions. Sexually aroused subjects showed significantly higher serum luteinizing hormone concentrations than non-aroused subjects. Testosterone concentration was correlated with higher levels of penile response, but(More)
Gonadotropin-releasing hormone in doses up to 500 microgram was administered to 12 healthy male volunteers. Luteinizing hormone and testosterone levels increased subsequent to GnRH administration. No immediate effects of GnRH on mood and behavior were noted, though an increase in alertness, a decrease in anxiety and fatigue, and an increased speed of(More)
In contrast to the commonly indolent clinical behavior of nodular lymphocyte predominant Hodgkin lymphoma (NLPHL), T cell/histiocyte rich large B cell lymphoma (THRLBCL) is frequently diagnosed in advanced clinical stages and has a poor prognosis. Besides the different clinical presentations of these lymphoma entities, there are variants of NLPHL with(More)
The pathogenesis of nodular lymphocyte-predominant Hodgkin lymphoma (NLPHL) and its relationship to other lymphomas are largely unknown. This is partly because of the technical challenge of analyzing its rare neoplastic lymphocytic and histiocytic (L&H) cells, which are dispersed in an abundant nonneoplastic cellular microenvironment. We performed a(More)
Predominant mood states were assessed for 104 children via 24-hr mother diaries during the first 2 years of life. Consistent sex differences were found across ages and across cohorts: boys were more often reported to be in a happy/excited mood, girls in a quiet/calm mood. The sexes did not differ in the frequency of negative moods (including crying),(More)
Five sex-steroid hormones (testosterone, androstenedione, estradiol, estrone, and progesterone) are assayed in umbilical cord blood. Timidity is assessed in home and laboratory observations by reactions to a range of novel toys in children from 6 to 18 months of age. Significant short- (1 week) and long- (several months) term stability in timidity is(More)
The association between mood and plasma testosterone was investigated. Every second day for 2 months, a Multiple Affect Adjective Checklist was filled out by 20 young men. Blood samples taken at the same time were analyzed for testosterone concentration. Relationships between hostility, anxiety, and depression and plasma testosterone levels were tested both(More)
Five sex-steroid hormones were assayed in umbilical cord blood. Strength was assessed in children in three samples at several ages from birth to 33 months. At different ages, different strength measures were taken, viz., at birth, prone head responses; at 3 months, leg strength; from 6 to 33 months, grip strength. Boys had higher average strength scores(More)
The membrane bound NADPH oxidase involved in the synthesis of reactive oxygen species (ROS) is a multi-protein enzyme encoded by CYBA, CYBB, NCF1, NCF2 and NCF4 genes. Growing evidence suggests a role of ROS in the modulation of signaling pathways of non-phagocytic cells, including differentiation and proliferation of B-cell progenitors. Transcriptional(More)
BACKGROUND The differential diagnosis between follicular thyroid adenoma and minimal invasive follicular thyroid carcinoma is often difficult for several reasons. One major aspect is the lack of typical cytological criteria in well differentiated specimens. New marker molecules, shown by poly- or monoclonal antibodies proved helpful. METHODS We performed(More)
