Prior studies of thyroid, adrenal and mood measures during pregnancy and the puerperium, which we review, have not examined hormone-mood relationships over the full peripartum period during which hormone levels change nor have they compared prior depression history with hormone changes. In a pilot study we measured thyroid and adrenal hormones as well as(More)
Central administration of an antagonist to the neuropeptide oxytocin (OT) has been shown to block the progesterone-induced facilitation of female sexual receptivity. In this study we examined the effects of infusing an OT antagonist (OTA) into various brain sites before rats were injected with 250 micrograms progesterone (P). Ovariectomized animals were(More)
Human SRC encodes the non-receptor tyrosine kinase pp60(c-Src), which is activated in many human colon cancer cell lines (HCCLs) and tumors. We found that both c-Src protein and mRNA levels were elevated in a subset of HCCLs. Increased c-Src mRNA and protein levels correlated strongly with increased c-Src kinase activity. Nuclear run-on analysis and c-Src(More)
We summarized most of the rheumatologic manifestations of tuberculosis (TB) and the occurrence of Mycobacterium tuberculosis disease associated with rheumatologic diseases. We established 4 different categories: (1) direct musculoskeletal involvement of M. tuberculosis, including spondylitis, osteomyelitis, septic arthritis, and tenosynovitis; (2) M.(More)

It is not known whether this neuroendocrine change is a precursor of alcoholism or a sequelae of heavy alcohol consumption. Three of four published studies have found evidence for(More)
