The development of the ovarian follicle, oocyte maturation, and ovulation require a complex set of endocrine, paracrine, and autocrine inputs that are translated into the regulation of cyclic nucleotide levels. Changes in intracellular cAMP mediate the gonadotropin regulation of granulosa and theca cell functions. Likewise, a decrease in cAMP concentration… (More)
OBJECTIVE Mapping of transrectal ultrasonographic (TRUS) prostate biopsies is of fundamental importance for either diagnostic purposes or the management and treatment of prostate cancer, but the localization of the cores seems inaccurate. Our objective was to evaluate the capacities of an operator to plan transrectal prostate biopsies under 2-dimensional… (More)
A 57-year-old woman was found to have an inferior vena cava involvement of a known sinusal angiomyolipoma incompletely resected three years beforehand. Intravascular extension into the IVC of angiomyolipoma has rarely been reported. We present a new case and reconsider the literature about this uncommon complication of a benign renal tumor.
AIMS To study clinical and urodynamic data along with immediate and long-term morbidity of surgical management of neurogenic bladder in spinal cord injury (SCI) patients METHODS Single-center retrospective study of 61 SCI patients with neurogenic detrusor overactivity (NDO) related urinary incontinence and/or sphincter weakness incontinence who underwent… (More)
Precision measurements of SM Higgs recoil mass and cross-section are performed, for √ s 230 GeV e channel and 250 GeV e and µ channels of the Higgs-Strahlung process e + e − → Z 0 h 0 , presuming M h = 120GeV, assuming the integrated luminosity is 500f b −1 , based on full simulations of several detector models of ILC. Results of these measurements of Higgs… (More)
Dark Matter (DM) detection prospects at future e + e − colliders are reviewed under the assumption that DM particles are fermions of the Majorana or Dirac type. Although the discussion is quite general, one will keep in mind the recently proposed candidate based on an excess of energetic photons observed in the center of our Galaxy with the Fermi-LAT… (More)
