The sex and age-related changes in the concentration of cytosol progesterone receptors (CPR) induced by estrogen (E) treatment in rat brain and pituitary were investigated by a modification of the Palkovits punch procedure using fresh tissue. Young male and female gonadectomized rats, 15, 21, 30, and 42 days of age, were treated for 44 h by a single sc(More)
OBJECTIVE In ovine fetuses, 4 days of hypoxia resulted in a large increase in urine flow, without the development of polyhydramnios, which suggests that intramembranous absorption of the amniotic fluid was enhanced. Because vascular endothelial growth factor is speculated to be a regulator of intramembranous absorption through increases of membrane(More)
OBJECTIVE We hypothesize that vascular endothelial growth factor, a known angiogenic and permeability factor that is locally expressed in fetal membranes and decidua, may be the primary regulator in the pathway that eventually leads to preterm premature rupture of membranes. Our objective was to test the hypothesis that, both in the presence and in the(More)
A total of 118 Rh isoimmunized pregnant women were discovered from 1972 to 1981. In diagnosing the disorder, the author draws attention to the examination of bilirubin in the amnionic fluid as the most reliable indicator, to which the dosing of measurable antibodies and echography are, in his opinion, a precious contribution. The administration of(More)
OBJECTIVES Umbilical-placental embolization with microspheres has been used as a model of placental insufficiency and intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR). However, the effects of embolization on placental structure and organ morphology of the resulting IUGR fetus are relatively unexplored. In this study using ovine fetuses, we determined the location and(More)
