Antigliadin and antiendomysium antibody determination for coeliac disease.
The value of IgG and IgA gliadin antibodies (AGA) was compared with that of IgA endomysium antibodies (EMA) for the diagnosis of coeliac disease. Three hundred and six of 340 (90%) children withExpand

Infertility in Cryptorchidism Is Linked to the Stage of Germ Cell Development at Orchidopexy
Background: Cryptorchidism represents the most common endocrine disease in boys, with infertility frequently observed in unilateral as well as bilateral forms. In this study, we examined the role ofExpand

The importance of mini-puberty for fertility in cryptorchidism.
PURPOSE Mini-puberty is the hormonal surge of gonadotropins and testosterone which occurs in early infancy. It induces the development and transformation of gonocytes into Ad spermatogonia, which isExpand

Importance of Early Postnatal Germ Cell Maturation for Fertility of Cryptorchid Males
Patients/Method: Twenty-seven adults who underwent an orchidopexy before 2 years of age have recently had their spermiograms analyzed. Results: Sixty-three percent of them had a normal sperm count;Expand
