In 345 women with a favorable cervical score at due date, labor was either induced by means of intravaginal application of tablets containing 3 mg of prostaglandin E2 or spontaneous onset of labor was awaited until the 42nd week of pregnancy. Eighty percent of the nulliparae and 96.3% of the multiparae of the induction group gave birth within 24 h of the(More)
Administration of the pyrrolizidine alkaloid monocrotaline (MCT) to rats results in hypertensive pulmonary vascular disease characterized by a structurally based increase in pulmonary vascular resistance and right ventricular hypertrophy. Alterations in lung angiotensin converting enzyme activity in MCT-treated rats have suggested a role for angiotensin II(More)
High temperature dispersion (greater than 700 degrees C) of the riot control agent orthochlorobenzylidenemalononitrile (CS) has previously been shown to produce a number of organic thermal degradation products through rearrangements and loss of cyano and chlorine substituents present on the parent CS compound. Until now the possibility that HCN and HCl(More)
A multi-centre, randomized, open-label trial was conducted to evaluate the safety and efficacy of recombinant interferon (rIFN) alpha-2c versus rIFN gamma in patients with recurrent or persistent condylomata acuminata (CA). Thirty-three such patients were treated either with 6 micrograms rIFN alpha-2c or with 0.1 mg rIFN gamma (both equivalent to 2 x 10E6(More)
In the present study we tried to evaluate the cancer marker CA 19-9, CA 12-5, CA 15-3 as well as the enzyme creatine-kinase (CK) whether they are of any diagnostic value in cases of tubal pregnancies. 15 patients with laporoscopically verified tubal pregnancy were compared with 15 patients with normal intrauterine pregnancies of the same age. Except one(More)
In this prospective multi-centre-study, the new treatment of tubal pregnancies by means of local prostaglandin (PG) F2 alpha and systemic PG E2 application was compared to the usual surgical technique of eliminating the conceptus. In 71 patients treated with PG, the method proved to be successful in 81%; 21 patients (19%) required surgical intervention(More)
A characteristic and comparatively frequent malformation of the female genital tract is the congenital absence of the vagina and a rudimentary uterus, known as Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster syndrome. Since we employ the modified surgical technique according to Vecchetti we have a relatively large incidence of patients with this syndrome. Thus, a total of 15(More)
