Gonadotropin Releasing Hormone-I (GnRH) has been implicated in an array of functions outside the neuroendocrine reproductive axis. Previous investigations have reported extensive GnRH binding in numerous sites and this has been supported by in situ hybridization studies reporting GnRH receptor mRNA distribution. The present study on mice and sheep supports(More)
Gonadotrophin-releasing hormone (GnRH) is a hypothalamic decapeptide with an undisputed role as a primary regulator of gonadal function. It exerts this regulation by controlling the release of gonadotrophins. However, it is becoming apparent that GnRH may have a variety of other vital roles in normal physiology. A reconsideration of the potential widespread(More)
Twenty-four patients were investigated for non-organ-specific and organ-specific autoantibodies (Aab) in order to establish a relationship between premature ovarian failure (POF) and autosensitization. Regarding the non-organ-specific Aab, prevalences of clearly raised ANA (42%), nDNA Ab (25%), rheumatoid factors (41%) and smooth muscle Aab (53%) were found(More)
Twenty-three patients with premature ovarian failure (POF), were investigated on the basis of cell-mediated immunity. An increase in T-cells and especially T-helper cells was found in the group of POF patients, while T-suppressor cells and B-cells did not exceed the counts compared to healthy controls matched for age and sex. The macrophage migration(More)
The effect of adjuvant immunotherapy with a single neighbourhood injection of 2 mg C. parvum (CP) was investigated in a randomized study involving 43 patients with carcinoma of the cervix uteri, all of whom were treated by radical surgery. All patients had carcinoma confined to the cervix, the upper part of the vagina or the parametrial region. When the(More)
Increasing evidence suggests that multihormonal cells in the pituitary gland may be more commonplace than previously thought. This has forced us to reconsider our classical view of cell populations in the pituitary gland. Studies so far have focused almost exclusively on the rat, and there is a dearth of information on other species. Our first objective was(More)
In earlier experiments we showed that locally administered Corynebacterium parvum (C. parvum) stimulated the T-cell system and had a beneficial effect on the recurrence rate of surgically resected cancers of the uterine cervix. In this paper we report the use of an immunoperoxidase technique to trace C. parvum antigen in the draining lymph nodes. In a(More)
Morphological changes are described in pelvic lymph nodes excised 10 days after C. parvum (CP) treatment of patients with cervical carcinoma. Guinea-pig popliteal and inguinal lymph nodes were investigated from Days 1 to 10 after an injection of 70 micrograms CP into the footpad. Eosinophils were detected from the first few hours after stimulation,(More)
