A plasma/serum estrogen-binding protein (E2BP) which is distinct from testosterone-estradiol-binding globulin (TEBG) has been documented. This high affinity, low capacity estrogen binder is readily detectable in the mannoglycoprotein fraction of serum or plasma. It can be distinguished from TEBG by 1) its isoelectric elution pH (pH 3.9 as distinct from pH(More)
Most chromosomal trisomies lead to miscarriages. In all trisomies, trisomy 1 is the most rare case. We herein present a patient who demonstrated a gestational sac and a yolk sac on transvaginal ultrasound. However, at 53 days of gestation, the pregnancy was lost with a diagnosis of a blighted ovum. A D&C was recommended and performed. A cytogenetic analysis(More)
One hundred and forty-three women in the early first trimester of gestation were examined 364 times using transvaginal sonography, and the development of embryonic heart rate was studied. In each case gestational age was revised retrospectively by either recorded basal body temperature or ultrasound crown-rump length dating between 9 and 10 weeks. Embryonic(More)
We evaluated the clinical efficacy and safety of intramuscular (as a new route of administration) imipenem/cilastatin sodium (IPM/CS) in patients with intrauterine infections which are typical in the field of obstetrics and gynecology. The obtained results are summarized as follows. 1. Twenty-seven patients were treated with IPM/CS, 250 mg/250 mg b.i.d. (3(More)
We report on a sporadic case of hitherto unknown lethal skeletal dysplasia. The cardinal clinical manifestations consisted of frontal bossing, cloudy corneae, low nasal ridge, and micrognathia, hypoplastic thorax, and rhizomelic micromelia. Laryngoscopy and neck CT disclosed laryngeal stenosis, and brain CT demonstrated hypoplasia of the corpus callosum.(More)
AIM To ascertain whether premature rupture of membranes (PROM) independently affects the risk of neonatal respiratory morbidity at 32-41 weeks' gestation because previous reports have given insufficient consideration to the mode of delivery and labor onset. METHODS Data on 4,629 consecutive singleton infants were retrospectively collected. Respiratory(More)
We studied clinical effects of ceftazidime (CAZ) alone or in combination with aspoxicillin (ASPC) against various infections in obstetric and gynecological patients. 1. Obstetric and gynecological patients (n = 91) with various infectious diseases were treated with CAZ alone (1-2 g x 2/day, n = 54) or in combination with ASPC (1-2 g x 2/day, n = 37)(More)
Testosterone-estradiol binding globulin (TeBG) has been known to have specific binding to estradiol (E2) in blood, however an unknown binding protein having higher affinity to E2 than TeBG is thought to exist in blood. Therefore blood serum and follicular fluid were collected in normal females. Ammonium sulfate precipitation showed different maximum bound(More)
To prevent postoperative infection in obstetric gynecology, latamoxef (LMOX) and tobramycin (TOB) were intravenously administered to 81 patients at daily doses of 2 g and 120 mg, respectively, for 5 postoperative days, and the preventive effect of the combined drugs on postoperative infection were evaluated in terms of the clinical effects and safety. 1.(More)
