Oligozoospermia was shown in single patients. In addition, a decrease of testosterone and an increase of gonadotropin levels were observed. We report on a young patient who(More)
The clinical usefulness of detection of TSH receptor antibodies (TRAK-assay, Henning) in differential diagnosis of thyroid disorders and in follow up of treatment of Graves' disease was evaluated and compared to thyroperoxidase antibodies estimation (DYNOtest antiTPO Henning). 313 patients with various thyroid diseases and 50 persons from control group were(More)

Most authors consider leucocytospermia to be a consequence of inflammation due to bacterial infection. However, the efficacy of antibiotic therapy was not unequivocally demonstrated until now. We started a prospective,(More)
The effect of serotonin given into the lateral ventricle of the brain in rats was investigated. Serotonin was solved in artificial cerebrospinal fluid and administered in three doses: 250 microgram, 50 microgram, 10 microgram. Only the highest dose of serotonin caused a statistically significant increase in serum TSH level 0.5 h after the injection. The(More)
