Psychobiology: Speech sounds learned by sleeping newborns
It is shown that full-term human newborns can be taught to discriminate between similar vowel sounds when they are fast asleep, and could find application in clinical or educational situations soon after birth. Expand
Frequency of anal sphincter rupture at delivery in Sweden and Finland ‐ result of difference in manual help to the baby's head
The difference in the incidence of anal sphincter rupture between Malmö, Sweden and Turku, Finland may be due to the difference in manual control of the baby's head when crowning. Expand
Nasal insulin to prevent type 1 diabetes in children with HLA genotypes and autoantibodies conferring increased risk of disease: a double-blind, randomised controlled trial
In children with HLA-conferred susceptibility to diabetes, administration of nasal insulin, started soon after detection of autoantibodies, could not be shown to prevent or delay type 1 diabetes. Expand
When does estrogen replacement therapy improve sleep quality?
Alleviation of climacteric symptoms was the most important predictive factor for the beneficial effect of estrogen replacement therapy on sleep complaints and significantly diminished sleep complaints among postmenopausal women. Expand
Polymorphisms at the Werner locus: II. 1074Leu/Phe, 1367Cys/Arg, longevity, and atherosclerosis.
Werner syndrome (WS) is a progeroid syndrome caused by autosomal recessive null mutations at the WRN locus. The WRN gene encodes a nuclear protein of 180 kD that contains both exonuclease andExpand
Growth Discordancy in Twin Pregnancies: A Risk Factor Not Detected by Measurements of Biparietal Diameter
It is indicated that a divergent growth pattern in twin pregnancy carries an elevated risk of intrauterine death, especially for the smaller twin. Expand
Effects of ospemifene and raloxifene on hormonal status, lipids, genital tract, and tolerability in postmenopausal women
Ospemifene, at the dose of 90 mg/day, was more estrogenic than raloxifenes, as shown by changes in serum follicle-stimulating hormone and sex hormone-binding globulin levels. Expand

Serum testosterone, androstenedione and luteinizing hormone levels after short‐term medroxyprogesterone acetate treatment in women with polycystic ovarian disease
This study was designed to determine serum testosterone, androstenedione and luteinizing hormone patterns in a group of oligomenorrheic PCOD patients after MPA‐treatment. Expand
Selective ovary resistance to insulin signaling in women with polycystic ovary syndrome.
There is a selective defect in insulin actions in PCOS granulosa cells, which suggests ovarian insulin resistance, and this metabolic phenotype is associated with an enhanced IGF-1 mitogenic potential. Expand
