Clomiphene, metformin, or both for infertility in the polycystic ovary syndrome
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) may be the commonest cause of female infertility. In addition to anovulation, early pregnancy loss, and later complications of pregnancy, obesity-which is common inExpand

Reproductive biology: Delivering spermatozoan RNA to the oocyte
Even though the genetic fingerprint of human sperm has been defined, its role in orchestrating fertilization and the development of the early embryo remains vague. Here we show that human maleExpand

Clomiphene, metformin, or both for infertility in the polycystic ovary syndrome.
BACKGROUND The polycystic ovary syndrome is a common cause of infertility. Clomiphene and insulin sensitizers are used alone and in combination to induce ovulation, but it is unknown whether oneExpand

Villar's nodule: a case report and systematic literature review of endometriosis externa of the umbilicus.
We report a case of umbilical endometriosis externa and systematically review the literature regarding this finding. In our case report, a 47-year-old woman with cyclic umbilical bleeding, pelvicExpand

A survey of small RNAs in human sperm.
BACKGROUND There has been substantial interest in assessing whether RNAs (mRNAs and sncRNAs, i.e. small non-coding) delivered from mammalian spermatozoa play a functional role in early embryoExpand

Success and failure in human spermatogenesis as revealed by teratozoospermic RNAs.
We are coming to appreciate that at fertilization human spermatozoa deliver the paternal genome alongside a suite of structures, proteins and RNAs. Although the role of some of the structures andExpand

A comparative study of the diagnostic performance of amniotic fluid glucose, white blood cell count, interleukin-6, and gram stain in the detection of microbial invasion in patients with preterm
OBJECTIVE Our aim was to compare the value of amniotic fluid tests for the detection of microbial invasion of the amniotic cavity and in the prediction of the amniocentesis-to-delivery interval andExpand

Letrozole versus clomiphene for infertility in the polycystic ovary syndrome.
BACKGROUND Clomiphene is the current first-line infertility treatment in women with the polycystic ovary syndrome, but aromatase inhibitors, including letrozole, might result in better pregnancyExpand

The presence, role and clinical use of spermatozoal RNAs.
BACKGROUND Spermatozoa are highly differentiated, transcriptionally inert cells characterized by a compact nucleus with minimal cytoplasm. Nevertheless they contain a suite of unique RNAs that areExpand

The diagnostic and prognostic value of amniotic fluid white blood cell count, glucose, interleukin-6, and gram stain in patients with preterm labor and intact membranes.
OBJECTIVE Our goal was to compare the value of amniotic fluid tests in the detection of microbial invasion of the amniotic cavity and in the relationship with the amniocentesis-to-delivery intervalExpand
