This study was aimed at developing a model in the rhesus monkey for the human gynecologic disorder termed the polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). The effects of chronic constant androgen exposure upon quantitative ovarian morphology and ovulatory function were examined. Twenty-five normally cycling females, aged 4-12 yr and weighing 3.3-8.2 kg, were enrolled(More)
After the rhesus monkey was demonstrated to be a suitable model for man in both metabolic and endocrinological studies, effects of hexachlorobenzene (HCB) and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB) on the pattern of sexual hormones in cycling female rhesus monkeys were investigated. After confirmed ovulation, four adult female rhesus monkeys were treated during(More)
Changes in gonadotropins, progesterone, cortisol, DHA, and DHAS were monitored in 10 female rhesus monkeys (Days 20-23 of the menstrual cycle) subjected to cage restraint with or without ketamine anesthesia for successive venipunctures. All animals were bled without sedation for 2 hr at 30-min intervals. Then 4 of the animals were anesthetized with(More)
The pharmacokinetics of recombinant human interferon-gamma (rIFN-gamma) were studied in rhesus monkeys. Intravenous administration of 0.1 mg/kg yielded half-lives of 12.3-13.4 min and 130 min. Clearance after intravenous administration was 18.7 ml/min/kg, and the steady-state volume of distribution (Vdss) was 510 ml/kg. The peak serum concentrations after(More)
This study examined the stress among mothers of children in regular and special education. The sample of 45 mothers had children enrolled in public schools from Kindergarten to Grade 8. To three groups, Group 1 of mothers with children in regular education, Group 2 of mothers with children classified as learning disabled, and Group 3 of mothers with(More)
Two forms of human GH (hGH) have been produced by recombinant DNA technology. One form has an amino acid sequence identical to that of the natural pituitary hormone (rhGH) and the other form has an additional N-terminal methionine (Met-hGH). The biological potencies of these 2 polypeptides have been compared in hypophysectomized rats in a multidose study(More)
Serum concentrations of dehydroepiandrosterone (DHA), DHA sulfate, and cortisol were measured in 52 chimpanzees (aged 0.5--10 yr), 76 Macaca mulatta (aged 0.25--5 yr), and 80 Macaca nemestrina (aged 0.5--9 yr). Sexual maturation was assessed by age and by the presence of menarche or the appearance of perineal turgescence in the females and by measurement of(More)
The serum gonadotropin response to castration was assessed in 8 foetal, 2 neonatal, 30 juvenile, and 2 adult rhesus monkeys (M. mulatta). In the 30 castrated juvenile monkeys and 8 sham-operated controls, concentrations of oestrone, oestradiol, androstenedione, dihydrotestosterone, testosterone and 17OH-progesterone were measured in 10 ml serum pools(More)
We studied the pharmacokinetic features, immunogenicity, and toxicity of B43-pokeweed antiviral protein (PAP) immunotoxin in 13 cynomolgus monkeys. The disposition of B43-PAP in two monkeys, when administered as a single i.v. bolus dose, was characterized by a slow clearance (1-2 ml/h/kg) with a very discrete peripheral distribution. B43-PAP was retained(More)
