Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) causes female subfertility with ovarian disorders and may be associated with increased rate of early-pregnancy failure. Rat PCOS models were established using letrozole to understand the uterine pathogenesis of PCOS. The differential expression of microRNAs (miRNAs) was observed in rat uterus with PCOS. After estrous cycles(More)
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a complex and heterogeneous endocrine disorder. To understand the pathogenesis of PCOS, we established rat models of PCOS induced by letrozole and employed deep sequencing to screen the differential expression of microRNAs (miRNAs) in PCOS rats and control rats. We observed vaginal smear and detected ovarian pathological(More)
This study investigated the effectiveness of Chinese therapeutic food on female reproductive hormones in a double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial. Chinese kiwi fruit extract (Hong En No. 1) was provided for Australian peri-menopausal women for one month. Chinese medical assessment and urinary 2-hydroxyestrone (2-OHE) and 16alpha-hydroxyestrone(More)
The objective of this study is to examine the localization and expression of FOXP1 in human endometrium during the menstrual cycle and in endometriotic lesions and endometrial adenocarcinoma. FOXP1 protein expression was analyzed by immunohistochemistry and Western blot. FOXP1 expression was significantly different between glandular epithelial and stromal(More)
Three new phloroglucinol derivatives, namely agripinol A-C (1-3), were isolated from Agrimonia pilosa Ledeb, along with two known ones (4-5). Their structures were characterized by spectroscopic methods, including MS and NMR spectroscopic techniques. The absolute configurations of the new compounds were unambiguously established by single crystal X-ray(More)
Non-coding RNAs (ncRNAs) are a diverse family of untranslated transcripts, which serve important roles in numerous biological processes. ncRNAs are emerging as major mediators of gene expression with crucial regulatory functions. Ovarian diseases have a wide variety of clinical pathological types, which have serious impacts on women's health. In this(More)
Progestins provide safe, effective and cheap options for contraception as well as the treatment of a variety of gynaecological disorders. Episodes of irregular endometrial bleeding or breakthrough bleeding (BTB) are a major unwanted side effect of progestin treatment, such that BTB is the leading cause for discontinued use of an otherwise effective and(More)
