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)
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)

Ovulation was induced in 24 cycles of normal ovulatory patients for in vitro fertilization using a modified human menopausal gonadotropin and human chorionic gonadotropin (hMG/hCG) protocol. This modification was based on experience in 31 cycles previously studied. The individual ovarian threshold response to hMG seen previously was again confirmed, and(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)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this work was to evaluate the effect that different antimicrobial agents and different forms of administering them would have over a systemic inflammatory response (SIR) induced by an intraperitoneally implanted collagen-coated Dacron graft. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty-six male Wistar rats were randomly allocated into six groups(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 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)
