We have previously shown the presence in a high concentration of endothelin-1 (ET) in the corpus luteum and renin-angiotensin system (RAS) and binding sites for atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) in the ovarian follicle. The present study was undertaken to identify the existence of ET, renin, angiotensin II and the binding site for ANP in the ovary at proestrus and examine in vivo the effects of herbal medicines [Tokishakuyakusan (TS), Keishibukuryogan (KB), Shakuyakukanzoto (SK) and Unkeito (UT… Expand

Endothelin-secreting tumors and the idea of the pseudoectopic hormone secretion in tumors.
TLDR
It is concluded that tumor cells might sustain endothelin secretions already present in the normal tumor-originated tissue, suggesting that ET-1-secreting normal cells are not more prone to the malignant transformation than their neighbours. Expand
The improvement of luteal insufficiency in fecund women by tokishakuyakusan treatment.
TLDR
It is suggested that tokishakuyakusan improves luteal insufficiency in women but does not affect the hormonal levels of women with normal menstrual cycles. Expand
