FOXL2 mutations cause gonadal dysgenesis or premature ovarian failure (POF) in women, as well as eyelid/forehead dysmorphology in both sexes (the 'blepharophimosis-ptosis-epicanthus inversus syndrome', BPES). Here we report that mice lacking Foxl2 recapitulate relevant features of human BPES: males and females are small and show distinctive craniofacial(More)
Prediction of ovulation was established by correlation of clinical parameters, follicular development by ultrasound, and estradiol, progesterone, and luteinizing hormone (LH) determination in 71 menstrual cycles. Laparoscopic follicular aspiration was accomplished in 41 of those cycles. A 28-hour interval from the ascending limb of the LH seems to be the(More)
One hundred twenty-five consecutive pregnancies conceived in vitro resulted in 100 deliveries of 115 babies. There were 23 clinical abortions (18.4%) and two tubal pregnancies. During the same interval 30 preclinical pregnancies occurred, but these pregnancies did not progress. There were 26 multiple pregnancies (37.1%) before the twelfth week; these(More)

We present a measurement of the W-boson mass using 200 pb{-1} of data collected in pp[over ] collisions at sqrt[s]=1.96 TeV by the CDF II detector at run II of the Fermilab Tevatron. With a sample of 63 964 W-->enu candidates and 51 128 W-->munu candidates, we measure M_{W}=80 413+/-34{stat}+/-34{syst}=80,413+/-48 MeV/c;{2}. This is the most precise single(More)
We present a search for standard model (SM) Higgs boson production using pp collision data at square root(s) = 1.96 TeV, collected with the CDF II detector and corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 4.8 fb(-1). We search for Higgs bosons produced in all processes with a significant production rate and decaying to two W bosons. We find no evidence for(More)
We present a search for the technicolor particles rho{T} and pi_{T} in the process pp-->rho{T}-->Wpi{T} at a center of mass energy of sqrt[s]=1.96 TeV. The search uses a data sample corresponding to approximately 1.9 fb{-1} of integrated luminosity accumulated by the CDF II detector at the Fermilab Tevatron. The event signature we consider is W-->lnu and(More)
We present the first measurement of the production cross section of a W boson with a single charm quark (c) in pp collisions at sqrt(s)=1.96 TeV, using soft muon tagging of c jets. In a data sample of approximately 1.8 fb(-1), recorded with the Collider Detector at Fermilab II detector at the Fermilab Tevatron, we select events with W+1 or 2 jets. We use(More)
We present a search for the standard model Higgs boson produced in association with a W boson in sqrt[s]=1.96  TeV pp collision data collected with the CDF II detector at the Tevatron corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 9.45  fb(-1). In events consistent with the decay of the Higgs boson to a bottom-quark pair and the W boson to an electron or muon(More)
Endometrial biopsy was performed between the first and third luteal phase day in 22 normally cycling patients following human menopausal gonadotropin and human chorionic gonadotropin ovulation induction for in vitro fertilization but in whom embryo transfer was not accomplished. Eleven patients showed an "advanced" pattern and 10 an "in-phase" endometrium(More)
