Extract: The concentration of luteinizing hormone (LH) and follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) in serum was determind using a double antibody radioimmunoassay method in each of 106 normal boys aged 5-16 years. The boys were grouped according to the stage of puberty (P1-P5) using the classification of TANNER.The serum LH and FSH, LH/FSH ratio, and testicular volume index (TVI) for boys prepuberty (P1) and at different stages of puberty (P2-P5) are shown in figure l and table. The mean value of LH… CONTINUE READING
