Risk factors for hypospadias in Norwegian boys - association with testicular dysgenesis syndrome?
TLDR
The results support the notion that the conditions of TDS share risk factors, including low parity, low birth weight, low gestational age, inguinal hernia, bleeding during pregnancy and Caesarean section. Expand
Linkage between cryptorchidism, hypospadias, and GGN repeat length in the androgen receptor gene.
TLDR
Findings indicate an association between GGN length and the risk of cryptorchidism and penile hypospadias, both conditions considered consequences of low androgenicity. Expand
Body Mass Index Is Associated with Impaired Semen Characteristics and Reduced Levels of Anti-Müllerian Hormone across a Wide Weight Range
TLDR
It is suggested that high BMI is negatively associated with semen characteristics and serum levels of AMH, and a negative relationship was observed between BMI and total testosterone. Expand
The RsaI polymorphism in the estrogen receptor-beta gene is associated with male infertility.
TLDR
Polymorphisms in ERbeta may have modulating effects on human spermatogenesis, and the phenotype of TDS seems to be, at least partly, determined by the genotype. Expand
Risk factors for testicular cancer--differences between pure non-seminoma and mixed seminoma/non-seminoma?
TLDR
A large case-control study on data on all live-born boys registered in the Medical Birth Registry of Norway during the period 1967-1998 found several risk factors for testicular germ cell cancer, including low parity, low gestational age, epilepsy and retained placenta. Expand
Is there an association between maternal weight and the risk of testicular cancer? An epidemiologic study of Norwegian data with emphasis on World War II
TLDR
The findings suggest that the increase in TC incidence over the past decades could be at least partly attributed to the increased maternal body weight observed in most populations in the relevant time period since TC is thought to be associated with in utero conditions. Expand
Investigation of six testicular germ cell tumor susceptibility genes suggests a parent-of-origin effect in SPRY4.
TLDR
Previously reported genetic associations with TGCT in a Scandinavian population are validated, and suggestive evidence of a parent-of-origin effect in SPRY4 is observed. Expand
Science teachers' pedagogical content knowledge development during enactment of socioscientific curriculum materials
The purpose of this study is to provide insight into short-term professionalization of teachers regarding teaching socioscientific issues (SSI). The study aimed to capture the development of scienceExpand
Differential distribution of splice variants of estrogen receptor beta in human testicular cells suggests specific functions in spermatogenesis
TLDR
The aim of this study was to identify and elucidate the mRNA expression pattern of the different ER beta splice variants in human testicular cells, and whether the differential splicing of ER beta is regulated in a cell-specific manner. Expand
CYP1A1, CYP3A5 and CYP3A7 polymorphisms and testicular cancer susceptibility.
TLDR
Investigation of possible associations between different CYP genotypes and TC suggested that polymorphisms in the CYP1A1 gene may contribute to variability of individual susceptibility to TC. Expand
