WHO analysis of causes of maternal death: a systematic review
TLDR
Haemorrhage and hypertensive disorders are major contributors to maternal deaths in developing countries and these data should inform evidence-based reproductive health-care policies and programmes at regional and national levels. Expand
Sexual and reproductive health: a matter of life and death
TLDR
The increasing influence of conservative political, religious, and cultural forces around the world threatens to undermine progress made since 1994, and arguably provides the best example of the detrimental intrusion of politics into public health. Expand
Chromosome abnormalities in human embryos after in vitro fertilization
TLDR
The findings are surprising in that two of the three embryos were chromosomally abnormal, and data on the DNA content of the nuclei in a further eight cases showed that ∼20% overall may be haploid. Expand
The recovery of preovulatory oocytes using a fixed schedule of ovulation induction and follicle aspiration
TLDR
It is suggested that a modification of this schedule could provide an acceptable recovery rate of pre‐ovulatory oocytes for research purposes, and possibly by simplifying the monitoring technique could be alicable to a wider range of patients seeking embryo transfer. Expand
FAILURE OF POSITIVE FEEDBACK IN NORMAL MEN AND SUBJECTS WITH TESTICULAR FEMINIZATION
TLDR
Ethinyloestra‐diol given orally to six regularly menstruating women during the early to mid follicular phase of the cycle evoked an LH surge which started between 48 and 72 h after the initiation of treatment, but a similar positive feedback effect on the secretion of follicle‐stimulating hormone (FSH) could not be demonstrated.

Reproductive health : a key to a brighter future : biennial report 1990-1991 : special 20th anniversary issue
WHO established its Special Programme of Research Development and Research Training in Human Reproduction in 1972 to promote coordinate conduct and evaluate research in human reproduction in bothExpand
Increasing ovulation rate in sheep by active immunization against an ovarian steroid androstenedione
TLDR
It is reported here that by actively immunizing sheep against androstenedione a slight but significant increase in ovulation rate can be induced. Expand
HYPOTHALAMIC‐PITUITARY‐OVARIAN FUNCTION IN PERIMENOPAUSAL WOMEN
TLDR
The results indicate that marked changes in the pattern of pituitary gonadotrophin secretion can be found in perimenopausal women with DUB, and an increase in peripheral levels of FSH may be due to a change in hypothalamic‐pituitary sensitivity to the feedback effects of oestrogen. Expand
Menstrual regulation by intramuscular injections of 16‐phenoxy‐tetranor PGE2 methyl sulfonylamide or vacuum aspiration. A randomized multicentre study
TLDR
With few exceptions, administration of the PGE2 analogue induced vaginal bleeding in both pregnant and non‐pregnant women but the duration and subjectively perceived amount of bleeding were greater than after vacuum aspiration, and both treatments were equally effective. Expand
