The prolactin (PRL) response to repeated injections of sulpiride, a dopamine antagonist, was evaluated in 18 healthy young men. Each subject received one or two injections of sulpiride 1 mg/kg i.m. The first injection was always given at 9 a.m. and the second after 2, 8, 24 or 48 h. Blood samples were taken through an indwelling venous catheter every 20 min(More)
Inducing ovulation in a cyclic mare is often necessary. For this purpose, hCG has been used commonly, but the response can be reduced after successive administrations. The aims of this study were to test the effectiveness of buserelin in hastening ovulation in estrus mares, and its influence on fertility; and to investigate the effect of treatment on LH(More)
BACKGROUND Aspiration of secretions that accumulate above the cuff of the endotracheal tube is a risk factor for ventilator-associated pneumonia.

This report describes a new procedure for laparoscopic treatment of non-communicating rudimentary uterine horn when attached to the contralateral unicornuate uterus by a band of tissue. A retrograde dissection with primary bipolar coagulation and section of the band of tissue enables primary occlusion of the main blood supply. In our opinion, this new(More)
INTRODUCTION Human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) can cause congenital infection with risk of neurological disability. Maternal-fetal transmission is associated with placental inflammation. 5-lipoxygenase (5-LO) is the key enzyme in the biosynthesis of Leukotrienes (LTs), which are proinflammatory mediators. This study investigated the effect of HCMV infection on(More)
