Three gender-balanced groups of 16 school children (5-6 years, 8-9 years, 11-12 years) participated in individual pretests of vision, hearing, and time to walk across a 12-m wide urban street and back. Each child then completed 10 roadside trials requiring judgement of the threshold point at which they would no longer cross in front of traffic approaching(More)
Women presenting with hirsuties/polycystic ovary syndrome have increased production of androgens. Clinical lore suggests that these women may have increased sexual desire. Treatment of hirsuties commonly involves antiandrogen therapy, a form of therapy with a potential for reducing sexual desire. The present study investigated sexual desire in 29 hirsute(More)
INTRODUCTION Several preference studies comparing a short-acting with a longer-acting phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitor have been conducted in men. Most men in those studies preferred tadalafil rather than sildenafil, and recent post hoc analysis of one study described several factors associated with men's treatment preference. No prospective studies have(More)
This article reports the utility of an information processing approach to examine whether there is a relationship between sexual content induced delay and levels of sexual desire as determined by self-report questionnaires. We tested this idea using a partial replication of the J. H. Geer and H. S. Bellard (1996) protocol demonstrating sexual content(More)

Overseas (especially in the UK and USA), research investigating the levels of stress, burnout, and associated psychiatric morbidity in health professionals, across(More)
INTRODUCTION The history of treatments for erectile dysfunction (ED) has involved a repeated pattern of uptake, followed by abandonment of the various therapies in the medium term. Even effective and simple to use medications are not necessarily continued; discontinuation rates range between 15% and 60%. Despite the association between partner sexual(More)
Many neuroendocrine tumors, including pheochromocytomas (PCs) and paragangliomas (PGLs), express one or more somatostatin receptors (SSTR1-5). A number of studies have reported SSTR expression in PCs and PGLs. However, receptor expression patterns have been conflicting, and until recently, specific monoclonal antibodies were not available against SSTR1-5.(More)
This study compared the impact of surgery on sexual desire in women who had undergone hysterectomy with women whose nongynecological surgery was of a similar status. Women aged 30 to 65 completed mailed questionnaires including the Sexual Desire Questionnaire, Hurlbert Index of Sexual Desire, and the Sexual Desire Inventory. Other areas assessed were(More)
Using the Female Sexual Function Index (FSFI) for investigating female sexual function has become widespread. A score of 26.5 has been suggested as delineating 'functional' from 'dysfunctional' women. This study aimed to understand in greater detail what contributes to changes in women's FSFI scores while their partners are taking oral erectile medications(More)
INTRODUCTION Testosterone undecanoate depot (TUD) administered intramuscularly is an effective form of testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) for male hypogonadism. Because of the ease of administration, TUD therapy may be preferable to subcutaneously implanted extended release T pellet implants (TI). AIM The primary objective was to retrospectively(More)
