Ovulation induction alone, and ovulation induction in conjunction with one of four assisted procreation methods [intra-uterine insemination (IUI), intra-peritoneal insemination (IPI), gamete intra-Fallopian transfer (GIFT) or in-vitro fertilization (IVF)] were tested as a treatment for male infertility in a prospective randomized trial. The trial when(More)
The relation between ventilatory function and the reported frequency of consumption of fresh fruit and fruit juice was studied among 1502 lifelong non-smokers and 1357 current smokers aged 18-69 with no history of chronic respiratory disease. Forced expiratory volume in one second (FEV1) was assessed by turbine spirometry. As winter fruit consumption was(More)
Details of 767 clinical pregnancies and 500 births from Bourn Hall are reported. All treated patients included some over 40 years old, many with ovarian or uterine defects, male infertility, etc. Patients were treated during their natural cycle or stimulated with clomiphene or clomiphene and human menopausal gonadotrophin. Follicular maturation was induced(More)
In a previous study of ion selectivity of alpha-hemolysin (alphaHL) in complex with beta-cyclodextrin (betaCD) adapter, we calculated the potential of mean force (PMF) and characterized the self-diffusion coefficients of isolated K(+) and Cl(-) ions using molecular dynamics simulations (Y. Luo et al., "Ion Selectivity of alpha-Hemolysin with(More)
The study reports the performance of four indirect enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISAs) for antibody (AB) detection using microtitre plates which were precoated with native or heat/detergent denatured antigens (AGs) from Trypanosoma congolense (T.c.) and T. vivax (T.v.), and stored for between 1 to 206 days at +37 degrees C. Bovine serum samples were(More)
Individual gonadotrophic hormones were used to examine the degree to which changes in intercellular coupling between somatic and germ cells initiate meiotic maturation, regulate protein synthesis or alter the ultrastructure of the ovine oocyte. Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH; 50 ng ml-1) suppressed intercellular coupling to the same extent as that(More)
