Couples received a maximum of three IUI cycles for the treatment of anovulation, cervical factors or unexplained infertility. Male factor problems were largely excluded by pretreatment(More)
Whereas the representations of skilled movements in most right handers are stored in the left hemisphere, the right hemisphere's contribution to action planning remains unclear. We investigated error patterns in left (LHD) and right hemisphere damaged (RHD) subjects as well as normal control subjects (C) to determine if specific components of action(More)
We wished to learn if weight perception can be extinguished by studying two patients with right hemisphere brain damage. When lifting weights simultaneously, a patient with right frontal damage was not biased in her judgments of which weight was heavier. By contrast, a patient with right parietal damage reported left-sided weights as being lighter than(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate follicular FSH and LH requirements during suppression of endogenous gonadotropins with the GnRH antagonist Nal-Glu and whether LH-like activity could be supplied by administering subcutaneous hCG. DESIGN Randomized clinical trial. PARTICIPANTS Thirty-two normally cycling females in the late follicular phase (dominant follicle mean(More)
Subjects consumed alcoholic beverages and attained blood ethyl alcohol concentrations ranging from 0.02 to 0.15 g/dL. Sets of blood samples were drawn from these subjects, including some samples that were allowed to clot and some in which anticoagulent was added. A quantitative analysis for ethyl alcohol was performed on these samples using headspace gas(More)
