METHODS This open-label, self-controlled, longitudinal study involved 20 healthy women receiving subcutaneous etonogestrel-releasing implants. At baseline, 1, 3 and 6 months, we measured the(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess if low-dose hCG is similar to hMG and to rFSH in the late follicular phase. STUDY DESIGN In a prospective randomized controlled trial, 51 patients undergoing controlled ovarian stimulation received ovarian priming with rFSH and then received hCG (200 IU/day) (hCG group, n=17), hMG (225 IU/day) (hMG group, n=17) or rFSH (200 IU/day)(More)
In developing countries there is a lack of trained personnel and testing equipment to facilitate early detection of hearing impairment in children. There is a need to develop a strategic functional model for identification of hearing impairments through a scheme for the optimal utilization of the limited and local resources in the community.
