Endogenous and exogenous testosterone affects several behavioural traits as shown in human and animal studies. The effects of testosterone can be mediated via androgen or oestrogen receptors, but also via rapid non-genomic effects. The aim of this study was to evaluate whether a single testosterone injection has effects, mediated via the androgen receptor,(More)
The first studies on the clinical use of ultrasound contrast agents (UCAs) with contrast specific imaging techniques were published at the beginning of this century. A couple of years later sulphur hexafluoride (SonoVue, Bracco, Milan) was marketed in Europe. CEUS has a number of distinct advantages over CT and MRI. It can be performed immediately, without(More)
UNLABELLED Evaluation of endometrial receptivity remains a challenge in clinical practice. Ultrasound evaluation of endometrial thickness and texture and measurement of uterine artery blood flow has been used for endometrial assessment. AIM To investigate the role of combination of sildenafil citrate and serophene on endometrial thickness, endometrial(More)
PURPOSE To assess the value of Transvaginal sonohysterography (SHG) in the detection of endometrial pathology in patients with postmenopausal uterine bleeding, without visualization of the endometrial on the Transvaginal ultrasonography (TVS). STUDY DESIGN Sixty postmenopausal patients with abnormal uterine bleeding, without sonographic visualization of(More)
Bill Gates today announces the era of service robotics and estimates that service robotics as part of assisted environments will undergo a similar fast and rigid development as the spread of personal computers in private and economic areas since the nineties. Already in 1961 Joe Engelberger wondered if relegating robotic technologies to only industrial(More)
UNLABELLED BUT: The present clinical study was undertaken to evaluate the efficacy, safety and tolerability of r-HuEPO in the treatment of severe anaemia post partum. MATERIALS AND METHODS Five women received Eprex (Cilag), for five days, and iron and folic acid twice daily. Haematological indices were investigated on the 2d, 5th, 14th and 30th day. (More)
Preterm birth (PB) is a primary public health challenge in both developed and underdeveloped nations. Despite improvements in obstetric care, rates of preterm birth have not decreased during the last 10 years. The etiological role of maternal infection, either in the genital tract or elsewhere, on preterm delivery remains unclear. Periodontal disease (PD)(More)
The hospital care of premature and low-birth infants requires expensive technology and experienced care. Many studies have looked at the institution of developmental care in the NICU. Significant increases in oxygen saturation as well as decreased levels of agitation and heart rate were found with the use of music. Other studies have shown a doubled daily(More)
