Effects of replacement dose of dehydroepiandrosterone in men and women of advancing age.
Aging in humans is accompanied by a progressive decline in the secretion of the adrenal androgens dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) and DHEA sulfate (DS), paralleling that of the GH-insulin-like growthExpand

The effect of six months treatment with a 100 mg daily dose of dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) on circulating sex steroids, body composition and muscle strength in age‐advanced men and women
The biological role of the adrenal sex steroid precursors ‐ DHEA and DHEA sulphate (DS) and their decline with ageing remains undefined. We observed previously that administration of a 50 daily doseExpand

Expression of inhibin/activin subunits and follistatin messenger ribonucleic acids and proteins in ovarian follicles and the corpus luteum during the human menstrual cycle.
The physiological role of intraovarian activin (beta/beta) and inhibin (alpha/beta) dimers in humans in unclear. The identification of follistatin as a beta-subunit-specific high affinity bindingExpand

A prospective study of dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate, mortality, and cardiovascular disease.
It has been postulated that dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) and its sulfate ester, dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate (DHEAS), the major secretory products of the human adrenal gland, may be discriminatorsExpand

Insulin, somatotropic, and luteinizing hormone axes in lean and obese women with polycystic ovary syndrome: common and distinct features.
The basic tenet of this investigation was that obesity is not a prerequisite in the development of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), as indicated by the fact that 50% of PCOS women are not obese.Expand

Alterations in the hypothalamic-pituitary-ovarian and the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axes in athletic women.
The functional integrity of the hypothalamic-pituitary-ovarian and hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axes was assessed by determining pulsatile LH, ACTH, and cortisol secretion during the earlyExpand

Diagnosis of premenstrual syndrome by a simple, prospective, and reliable instrument: The calendar of premenstrual experiences
To establish a quantitative method for the diagnosis of premenstrual syndrome (PMS), a simple prospective inventory, the calendar of premenstrual experiences, was constructed. The validity andExpand
