Antimüllerian hormone (AMH) not only a marker for prediction of ovarian reserve.
The role of the hormone in male and female development, its participation in oocyte maturation including selection of a dominant follicle are summarized, as well as its changes under various pathological situations in both sexes. Expand
Age and sex related differences in serum levels of unconjugated dehydroepiandrosterone and its sulphate in normal subjects.
It is concluded that DHEA measurements cannot be a substitute for DHEAS and vice versa and indicates the possible variable secretion and dynamics of their (inter)conversion. Expand
Selected pro- and anti-inflammatory cytokines in cerebrospinal fluid in normal pressure hydrocephalus.
CSF can better show the neurodegenerative changes in the brain, and the cytokines IL-1β, IL-6 and IL-10 may be helpful in NPH diagnostics. Expand
Time-resolved fluoroimmunoassay for plasma enterolactone.
Enterolactone, produced by intestinal bacteria from matairesinol and secoisolariciresinols in fiber-rich food, is a biomarker related to the intake of a healthy diet and is determined using a time-resolved fluoroimmunoassay using a europium chelate as a label. Expand
Neurosteroids: Cerebrospinal fluid levels for Alzheimer's disease and vascular dementia diagnostics.
A neurodegenerative disease such as Alzheimer's disease (AD) is associated with significantly higher dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) levels in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). Because the human brain isExpand
Identification of isoflavonoids in beer
Beer contains significant amounts of biologically active isoflavonoid phytoestrogens, mainly in the form of genistein and biochanin A. Expand
Rapid analysis of phytoestrogens in human urine by time-resolved fluoroimmunoassay
The TR-FIA method including only a hydrolysis step gave higher values than those measured by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS), however, the assay results showed strong correlation with those obtained by GC-MS. Expand
Determination of steroid metabolome as a possible tool for laboratory diagnosis of schizophrenia
The findings suggest that the assessment of steroid levels may become a valid and accurate laboratory test in psychiatry, and steroid metabolome model may be used as a diagnostic tool for further studies. Expand
Associations of bisphenol A and polychlorinated biphenyls with spermatogenesis and steroidogenesis in two biological fluids from men attending an infertility clinic.
The data indicate that BPA influences human gonadal and adrenal steroidogenesis at various steps, and may negatively contribute to the final state of sperm quality. Expand
Serum Concentrations of Some Neuroactive Steroids in Women Suffering from Mixed Anxiety-Depressive Disorder
The results indicate that imbalance in neuroactive steroids may play a negative role in origin and course of psychiatric and neurological disorders. Expand
