OBJECTIVE The present study was carried out to evaluate the assumption that oxytocin (OT) plays a neuroendocrine role in bone remodeling. For this purpose the changes in serum calcium, serum RANKL and OPG levels were detected in addition to morphological examination of the bone. METHODS Two regimes for OT administration were used: 1. one group of rats was(More)
Salivary estradiol 17 beta (E2-17 beta) and progesterone (P) were determined by using radioimmunoassay techniques in 30 pregnant females in the first, second and third trimesters as well as in 10 non-pregnant controls during the luteal phase of the menstrual cycle. Plaque index (P.I.), gingival index (G.I.) and retention index (R.I.) were measured in all(More)

Urinary E1, E2, E3 and pregnandiol were determined in 60 premenopausal and 12 postmenopausal breast cancer patients before and after mastectomy, as well as in 30 normal females. Data obtained showed great individual variation. The general findings were low oestrogens in young patients, normal in old premenopausal patients and high in postmenopausal(More)
A total number of 28 mature Barki ewes were divided into three groups according to the methods used for synchronization of estrous cycle with different drugs. Group I comprised 8 ewes received no drugs and served as control group. Group II included 10 ewes synchronized by 3 ml (15 mg) prostaglandin F2  injected i.m and repeated once after 9 days from the(More)
20 women using Gynanovlar 21 (3 mg norethisterone acetate, .05 mg ethinyl estradiol) for 3, 6, or 12 months; 20 women using Lyndiol 2.5 (2.5 mg Lynoestrenol, .075 mg mestranol) for the same durations; and 10 controls were selected for study at Ghamra Army Hospital in Egypt. The mean level of plasma 17-hydroxycorticoids in 3-month Gynanovlar users was(More)
Steroid excretion analysis before and after monthly injections of deladroxate (150-mg dihydroxyprogesterone acetophenide combined with 10-mg estradiol enanthate per ml of oily solution) was compared in 9 healthy 20-35 year old women. Injections were given on Day 8 of the cycle. 24-hour urine collections were made on Day 23 of the cycle, both before and(More)
An intravenous glucose tolerance test was carried out in 20 children with advanced bilharzial hepatic fibrosis (B.H.F.) and in 10 healthy controls of the same age. Impaired glucose tolerance was demonstrated in bilharzial patients by the presence of a low glucose disappearance rate. There was no difference between the fasting blood sugar and plasma free(More)
Urinary estriol excretion was estimated in 24-hour urine collections between days 13 and 16 of the cycle in 144 multiparous women using either lyndiol 2.5 or gynanovlar as oral contraceptives. 20 parous women were controls. Marked reductions in peak values at midcycle were seen in women on the pill. The reductions became more marked with time. Among(More)
