OBJECTIVE There are advantages and disadvantages with all of the presently available types of testosterone replacement for hypogonadal men. We performed this investigation to establish detailed data about the pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, feasibility and side-effects of subcutaneously implanted testosterone (T) pellets. DESIGN AND MEASUREMENT In a(More)
We investigated whether the androgen type or application mode or testosterone (T) serum levels influence serum lipids and lipoprotein levels differentially in 55 hypogonadal men randomly assigned to the following treatment groups: mesterolone 100 mg orally daily ([MES] n = 12), testosterone undecanoate 160 mg orally daily ([TU] n = 13), testosterone(More)
BACKGROUND Myxedema coma is a severe life-threatening clinical state with a high mortality rate. Very often symptoms are masked because of concurrent illnesses. There are no data available about the incidence and prevalence of this disease. Therefore we conducted a survey in the Federal Republic of Germany between 1993 and 1995 by a questionnaire on the(More)
INTRODUCTION The aim of this study is to analyze thyroid hormone parameters in large homogenous patient cohorts with preterminal (stage 4) and terminal (stage 5) renal failure in an area of low iodine intake. PATIENTS AND METHODS Thyroid parameters were measured in healthy controls (n=48), patients with preterminal renal failure (n=48) and patients with(More)
The scientific evidence concerning prosthodontic care for the shortened dental arch (SDA) is sparse. This randomized multicenter study aimed to compare two common treatment options: removable partial dental prostheses (RPDPs) for molar replacement vs. no replacement (SDA). One of the hypotheses was that the follow-up treatment differs between patients with(More)
OBJECTIVE Several studies have suggested that iodine may influence thyroid hormone status, and perhaps antibody production, in patients with autoimmune thyroid disease. To date, studies have been carried out using large amounts of iodine. Therefore, we evaluated the effect of small doses of iodine on thyroid function and thyroid antibody levels in euthyroid(More)
In cats under halothane or methoxyflurane, iontophoretic applications of choline are only eight times weaker than applications of acetylcholine in evoking firing of neurons in the sensorimotor region of the cerebral cortex. The action of choline is suppressed by atropine but not by two agents that block choline uptake (hemicholinium-3 and triethylcholine),(More)
Of 50 patients with incidentalomas (INC), 18 were adrenalectomized and in 18 patients the INC was left in place. For 14 patients clinical data were insufficient for evaluation. Follow-up investigation of the 18 unoperated subjects 11-101 months (median 32.2) after the diagnosis had been made revealed unchanged size of the INC [initially 2.1 +/- 0.8 cm (mean(More)
A prospective study was conducted to investigate the effect of long term therapy with two iodine-containing mouth rinses on thyroid function. Two groups of subjects were treated daily for 6 months with either a 5% polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVPI)-1.5% H2O2 mixture (Perimed) or a 5% PVPI-water mixture. Thyroid function studies, serum iodine concentrations, and(More)
