Samples of thyroglobulin (Tg) were isolated from specimens of differentiated thyroid carcinoma of the papillary type and from normal adjacent glandular tissue, and the content of sialic acid was estimated. Also the in vitro incorporation of 14C-sialic acid, in the form of both CMP (cytidine 5'-monophospho-)--activated and non-activated N-acetyl-neuraminic(More)
Controversial data were reported concerning fasting ghrelin (decreased, normal or elevated) in polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). The aim of our study was to clarify ghrelin levels in non-obese, overweight, and obese PCOS patients; to investigate the effect of acute insulin infusion on ghrelin in PCOS as a chronic insulin-resistant state, with and without(More)
An association of bilateral large adrenocortical androgen-producing adenomas with polycystic ovaries in a young female is presented. She developed mild hirsutism and secondary amenorrhoea at the age of 17, and was treated for 3 years with an anti-androgen (cyproterone acetate) and ethinyloestradiol. Routine follow-up at the age of 21 showed bilateral large(More)
Chronic pulsatile subcutaneous administration of low doses of gonadotrophin releasing hormone (GnRH) is an effective therapy for men with hypogonadotrophic hypogonadism. Hypersensitivity reactions to GnRH are rare. We wish to report hypersensitivity reactions with intravenous GnRH after low dose subcutaneous pulsatile GnRH treatment in two men with(More)
It is postulated that insulin may play a role in the regulation of ovarian androgen production. In order to test the possible interrelation between serum insulin levels and androgen production, sequential euglycemic insulin clamp (Mode 9:1 on Biostator, insulin infusion rate: 0.1; 0.2 and 0.4 U/kg b. wt/h, each rate for 90 min, BC = 80 mg/dl) was done in 6(More)
In vitro lysosomal acid protease activity was studied in human papillary thyroid carcinoma (n = 13). As a control, morphologically normal thyroid tissue from the same patient was used in each individual case of carcinoma. Although a marked variation may be observed between individual cases, each examined papillary thyroid carcinoma showed significantly(More)
Dynamic studies of growth hormone (GH) secretion were performed in two patients with ectopic GHRH syndrome. Patient 1 (female, 33 years old) had a growth hormone releasing hormone (GHRH) producing carcinoid of the lung with clinical features of acromegaly while patient 2 (50 years old male) had small cell carcinoma of the lung without acromegaly. Insulin(More)
Cycles of excessive cortisol secretion have been reported interposed with phases of remission lasting from few days to several months. In this study we report a ten year follow up on a patient who had four episodes of hypercortisolism and Cushing's syndrome associated with hypokalemia and edema and three long lasting spontaneous remissions. This was all(More)
The aim of our study was to compare the effectiveness of bromocriptine vs. long acting somatostatin analogue (SMS 201-995) on growth hormone suppression in active acromegaly. A twenty year old female, student of law, was previously treated with Parlodel LA 50 mg i.m. injection and then with bromocriptine 30 mg orally for 2.5 years because of active(More)
