A prospective randomized trial comparing low dose flutamide, finasteride, ketoconazole, and cyproterone acetate-estrogen regimens in the treatment of hirsutism.
Sixty-six hirsute women were randomized and treated with 1) flutamide (n = 15), 250 mg/day; 2) finasteride (n = 15), 5 mg/day; 3) ketoconazole (n = 16), 300 mg/day; and 4) ethinyl estradiolExpand

Linkage between sexual and asexual lineages: genome evolution in Bacillus stick insects
The sexually reproducing stick insects Bacillus rossius and B. grandii are sharply differentiated in terms of allozyme gene alleles; B. atticus is a polyclonal automictic parthenogen sister to B.Expand

Cytology of Parthenogenesis in Bacillus whitei and Bacillus lynceorum (Insecta Phasmatodea)
Summary We investigated the maturation divisions of two obligate parthenogenetic natural interspecific hybrids: the diploid B. whitei and the triploid B. lynceorum. B. whitei shows two maturationExpand

Taxonomy and phylogeny of European Monochamus species: first molecular and karyological data
The worldwide distributed genus Monochamus Megerle, 1821 (Coleoptera Cerambicydae) comprises beetles that may become pests of economic importance in conifer stands in the Nearctic and PalearcticExpand

Centrosome dynamics and inheritance in related sexual and parthenogenetic Bacillus (Insecta Phasmatodea)
In animals, some general features of centrosome dynamics and inheritance have been widely recognized. The most acknowledged model assigns to sperm the contribution of a centriole to the fertilizedExpand

Genome size in parental and hybrid species of Bacillus (Insecta, Phasmatodea) from southeastern Sicily: a flow cytometric analysis
In Sicily five Bacillus taxa are found: two bisexuals, B. grandii (2n = 34, female; 2n = 33, male) and B. rossius (2n = 36, female; 2n = 35, male), and three thelytokous, B. atticus (2n = 34), B.Expand

Flow-cytometric analyses of intraspecific genome size variations in Bacillus atticus (Insecta, Phasmatodea)
The stick insect Bacillus atticus comprises several populations with different chromosome numbers that are distributed over a large range of the Mediterranean basin. Here we have analyzed the DNAExpand

Automictic parthenogenesis in the diploid-triploid stick insect Bacillus atticus and its flexibility leading to heterospecific diploid hybrids
Summary Bacillus atticus carius is a complex of diploid and triploid all-female parthenogens. In diploids the first meiotic divisions are regular and segregate two haploid nuclei which fuse back toExpand

Chromosomal and NOR patterns in the polyclonal stick insect Bacillus atticus atticus (Insecta; Phasmatodea).
Bacillus atticus atticus is a complex of thelytokous parthenogens, related to the bisexual Bacillus grandii, that ranges from Sardinia to Near Eastern countries. Karyotypic and cytogeneticExpand

Automictic parthenogenesis and its genetic consequence in Bacillus atticus atticus (Insecta Phasmatodea)
Summary The meiotic divisions in the eggs of the diploid thelytokous stick insect Bacillus atticus atticus (2n=34 or 33) were examined in Feulgen squashes. The reduction division is normal andExpand
