BACKGROUND Testicular sperm retrieval can lead to paternity for azoospermic patients with spermatogenic failure. The human BOULE gene, a meiotic regulator of germ cells, is a gene whose altered expression may be associated with sterility. We determined the levels of BOULE transcripts in the testes of azoospermic patients, and evaluated the relationship(More)
BACKGROUND DAZ gene family is crucial for human spermatogenesis that requires the precise co-ordination of cell cycle events. CDC25A is recognized as the downstream substrate of DAZ gene family and is thought to function on the M-phase regulation of cell cycles. We investigated the expression profiles of CDC25A in the testes of infertile men and evaluated(More)
BACKGROUND M-phase promoting factor (MPF), which is comprised of Cyclin B and a catalytic subunit, Cdc2, is a key enzyme required for cells to enter M phase in both mitosis and meiosis. MPF activity is controlled by the stimulatory dephosphorylation of the Cdc25 family and the inhibitory phosphorylation of Wee1. We determined the levels of mRNA transcripts(More)

Objective: Extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT) is an attractive treatment for Peyronie's disease (PD), while its effectivity for PD still remains controversial. Methods: We conducted a search of(More)
Single spike activity from the surface electromyogram (EMG) of fasciculations induced by succinylcholine (Sch) were studied from limb muscles (biceps, triceps, anterior tibialis and gastrocnemius) in 100 female patients. About 2/3 of them (n = 72) also received nondepolarizing neuromuscular pretreatment (atracurium or vecuronium). We observed from 20% of(More)
