Orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT) remains a potentially hemorrhagic procedure. Rotational thromboelastometry (ROTEM) is a point-of-care device used to monitor coagulation during OLT. Whether it allows blood loss and transfusions to be reduced during OLT remains controversial. Excellent correlations and predictive values have been found between ROTEM(More)
Prostate growth is known to be controlled by steroids such as androgens and estradiol. For this reason steroids (estradiol, adrenal androgens) or steroid inhibitors are commonly used as palliative treatments for prostate carcinoma. In view of the pivotal role played by Ca2+ ions in cell proliferation, we decided to investigate the effects of 17(More)
The involvement of protein kinase C (PKC) in GnRH action is still a matter of controversy. We have conducted a comparative study of LH and FSH release in response to GnRH and to phorbol ester myristate acetate (PMA), an activator of PKC, by rat pituitary cells maintained in culture. The effect of E2 pretreatment coupled or not with PKC depletion was also(More)
Gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH)-stimulated changes in the cytosolic free Ca2+ concentration ([Ca2+]i) were studied in gonadotrophs cultured from 3-week ovariectomized rat pituitaries. One animal was used per cell preparation. [Ca2+]i was monitored in individual gonadotrophs by dual emission microspectrofluorimetry, using Indo-1 as the intracellular(More)

In the badger a seasonal sexual rhythm of the plasma testosterone is observed. There is also a nycthemeral rhythm of the testosterone secretion; during the regressed period of the testis this rhythm is bimodal with testosterone peaks during the light phase of the day; during the active period and "activity rhythm" with many transitorys peaks during the dark(More)
Although active spermatogenesis occurs throughout the year in the male European badger Meles meles L., seasonal fluctuations of testicular activity were observed. The present study compared the pattern of luteinizing hormone (LH) and testosterone (T) secretions throughout the annual cycle. LH secretion was investigated by means of a heterologous(More)
