BACKGROUND Hyperandrogenaemia is a common feature of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). The sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG) gene was proposed as being a PCOS candidate gene. A possible influence of the microsatellite polymorphism (TAAAA)(n) in the SHBG gene on serum SHBG levels in PCOS patients was investigated. METHODS One hundred and twenty-three(More)
In order to investigate the contribution of the atrial natriuretic factor (ANF) gene in pathogenesis of essential arterial hypertension (EAH), we analyzed the ScaI gene polymorphism of the ANF gene in a group of children with EAH. Fifty-eight children, aged 8-19 years, with the diagnosis of EAH were included in the association study and were compared to 57(More)
Purpose :Women with ultrasonic evidence of polycystic ovaries are at higher risk of ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS). We focused on investigating a possible association of the (TTTTA) n microsatellite polymorphism in the promoter of the CYP11A gene with OHSS during controlled ovarian hyperstimulation (COH). Methods :We evaluated 58 patients at high(More)
Receptor for advanced glycation end products (RAGE) plays a role in atherosclerosis in diabetics. There are two functional polymorphisms in the promoter of the RAGE gene (-429T/C and -374T/A). The aim of this study was to look for a relationship between the -429T/C and the -374T/A gene polymorphisms of the RAGE gene and the development of coronary artery(More)
Genetic epidemiology studies of hereditary hemochromatosis (HHC) have shown a high prevalence of the C282Y mutation in individuals of the North Western European origin, whereas lower prevalence of HFE gene mutations was detected in the populations from southern European countries. However, no HFE mutation prevalence data have been provided for the(More)
A rare case of a heterotopic pregnancy after single embryo and blastocyst transfer is presented. A couple suffered from idiopathic infertility and underwent assisted reproduction techniques in a university hospital. Intercourse on the day of HCG administration was the probable cause for an in vivo fertilization of an oocyte that was not collected during the(More)
Genetic causes of premature ovarian failure (POF) comprise less than one-third of all cases, among them X chromosome abnormalities, mutations and polymorphisms in some genes. The frequency of X-chromosome mosaicism in women with sporadic POF has been found to range between 3 and 10%, whereas the prevalence of POF in carriers of the FMR1 premutation is(More)
Prenatal genetic testing is under the remit of the National Health Service in Slovenia and has been included in clinical routine since the 1980s. Traditionally, prenatal services have consisted of karyotyping and rapid fetal aneuploidy screening to detect chromosome abnormalities, whereas targeted mutation testing was used for single gene disorders.(More)
BACKGROUND Polymorphism in the CTG triplet number in the myotonic dystrophy type 1 (DM1PK) gene has been proposed as being associated with idiopathic azoospermia. The aim of this study was to investigate whether the CTG trinucleotide amplification in the DM1PK gene is associated with male subfertility. METHODS We evaluated 107 subfertile patients, male(More)
