The question of declining sperm density revisited: an analysis of 101 studies published 1934-1996.
The average decline in sperm count was virtually unchanged from that reported previously by Carlsen et al. and that the observed trends previously reported for 1938-1990 are also seen in data from 1934-1996. Expand
Have sperm densities declined? A reanalysis of global trend data.
Detailed reanalysis of data from 61 studies supports a significant decline in sperm density in the United States and Europe and identifies the cause(s) of regional and temporal differences, whether environmental or other. Expand
A multivariate analysis of risk factors for preeclampsia
There are a number of risk factors for preeclampsia that may be determined early in a woman's pregnancy and whether these risk factors are different for nulliparas and multiparas is established. Expand
In Utero Exposure to Dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane (DDT) and Dichlorodiphenyldichloroethylene (DDE) and Neurodevelopment Among Young Mexican American Children
Prenatal exposure to DDT was associated with neurodevelopmental delays during early childhood, although breastfeeding was found to be beneficial even among women with high levels of exposure and countries considering the use of DDT should weigh its benefit in eradicating malaria against the negative associations found. Expand
Age at menarche in relation to maternal use of tobacco, alcohol, coffee, and tea during pregnancy.
To investigate the potential effects of common early life exposures on age at menarche, the authors examined data collected in a follow-up study of pregnancies that occurred during the 1960s inExpand
A Comparison of PBDE Serum Concentrations in Mexican and Mexican-American Children Living in California
The data suggest that PBDE serum concentrations in first-generation Mexican-American 7-year-old children resulted primarily from postnatal exposure, which potentially present a major public health challenge in California. Expand
Moderate Maternal Alcohol Consumption and Risk of Spontaneous Abortion
Moderate alcohol consumption in a prospective cohort study of over 5,000 pregnant women found an increased risk of spontaneous abortion in women who drank more than three drinks per week during the first trimester, with an adjusted odds ratio of 2.3. Expand
Comparison of Current-Use Pesticide and Other Toxicant Urinary Metabolite Levels among Pregnant Women in the CHAMACOS Cohort and NHANES
Findings suggest that the CHAMACOS cohort has an additional burden of precursor pesticide exposure compared with the national sample, possibly from living and/or working in an agricultural area. Expand
Exposure to organic solvents and adverse pregnancy outcome.
Occupational exposure to at least some solvents appears associated with spontaneous abortion, and household use of solvent-containing products was generally not strongly associated with SAB, nor did it appear to confound the association seen with occupational use. Expand
Corticosteroid therapy in severe alcoholic hepatitis. A double-blind drug trial.
Abstract A prospective, double-blind controlled pilot study in 20 subjects of the efficacy of glucocorticosteroids in the treatment of severe, life-threatening, alcoholic hepatitis failed to demons...
