The aim of this paper is to improve the increase of the torque produced by the PM motor whose energy is supplied using batteries without decreasing the(More)
The prevalence of abnormalities in androgen receptor gene (AR) among patients with ambiguous genitalia is unknown. Moreover, endocrinological data from prepubertal patients with AR mutation are very limited. Thus, the aim of this study was to examine the prevalence of abnormalities in AR among patients with both ambiguous genitalia, which was defined as a(More)
