PROBLEM Comparison and characterisation of different lymphocyte subsets in the endometrium of endometriosis patients and in healthy women on every day of the menstrual cycle with special emphasis on the CD4:CD8 ratio in the endometrium. METHOD Immunohistochemical staining of 253 endometrial biopsies of infertile women with and without endometriosis with(More)
OBJECTIVE Women with diabetes need safe, effective contraception. Although intrauterine devices provide superior contraception, concerns remain that progestin absorbed systemically from the levonorgestrel-releasing device may impair carbohydrate metabolism. To examine the effect of the levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine system on glucose metabolism in(More)
Acrosome status in human spermatozoa from 20 normozoospermic men was evaluated by flow cytometry following the induction of the acrosome reaction with the ionophore A23187. Dual fluorescence staining of methanol fixed spermatozoa incubated with and without (control) the ionophore A23187 was performed with probes which targeted the outer acrosomal membrane(More)
Clinical data and results of combined treatment have been analyzed in 163 patients with common types of endometriosis: retrocervical in 116, cervical in 43 and vaginal in 5 patients. Growth of retrocervical endometriosis into the vaginal wall with cyst formation was seen in 21 patients. Conventional surgical procedures were adjuncted by physical treatments(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the use of flow cytometry (FCM) analysis of living spermatozoa subjected to indirect immunofluorescence staining with the mouse anti-human immunoglobulin (Ig)G monoclonal antibodies (FCM test) as an objective method for the detection of antisperm antibodies in semen and serum. DESIGN The comparative studies were conducted with the(More)
This study compares the results of microsurgical uterine horn anastomosis performed using fibrin glue (FK-1), 8/0 Prolene sutures, or fibrin glue in combination with 8/0 Prolene sutures. Thirty-two rats were divided into three groups. Three results were studied: frequency of adhesion formation in the area of anastomosis, uterine horn patency, and pregnancy(More)
The effect of various parameters of transcutaneous electrical neurostimulation (TENS) on changes in B-endorphin (BE) blood plasma level has been studied in the mother and fetus during premature labour. A dependence of changes in BE plasma level on the frequency regimen of the impulse current has been established. The data, on the one hand, demonstrate the(More)
