Endometriosis, a highly prevalent gynecological disease, is often associated with infertility, even in its milder forms (minimal and mild endometriosis). However, no consensus has been established with regard to this relationship and the possible mechanisms involved have not been completely elucidated. The oocyte is believed to have an important role in the(More)
STUDY QUESTION What are the direct effects of androgens on primate follicular development and function at specific stages of folliculogenesis? SUMMARY ANSWER Androgen addition altered primate follicle survival, growth, steroid and anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH) production, and oocyte quality in vitro, in a dose- and stage-dependent manner. WHAT IS KNOWN(More)
The polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is considered the most common endocrine disease during the woman's reproductive life, with prevalence ranging from 5 to 10 % of women of reproductive age. There is a paucity of studies regarding the use of the lipid accumulation product (LAP) as a risk marker for the development of cardiovascular disease (CVD). A(More)
Polycystic ovary syndrome represents 80% of anovulatory infertility cases. Treatment initially includes preconception guidelines, such as lifestyle changes (weight loss), folic acid therapy to prevent the risk of fetal neural tube defects and halting the consumption of tobacco and alcohol. The first-line pharmacological treatment for inducing ovulation(More)
INTRODUCTION Endometrial ossification is an uncommon disease related to secondary infertility and its etiology and pathogenesis are controversial. More than 80% of reported cases occur after pregnancy. CASE PRESENTATION A 33-year-old Caucasian woman was admitted with a history of secondary infertility and with a regular menstrual cycle. She reported a(More)
Impaired oocyte quality and oxidative stress might be involved in the pathogenesis of endometriosis-related infertility. To improve our understanding of the role of oxidative stress in this condition, we compare eight oxidative stress markers from each stage, including the simultaneous analysis of lipids, proteins and DNA damage, in the serum and follicular(More)
Main memory is a major performance bottleneck in current chip multiprocessors. Current DRAM banks latch the last accessed row in an internal buffer, namely row buffer (RB), which allows fast subsequent accesses to that row. This throughput-oriented approach was originally designed for single-thread processors and pursues to take advantage of the spatial(More)
