Inhibin (and its alpha-subunit) may be of particular value as a marker for follicular development in in-vitro fertilization (IVF) in comparison with the classic follicle stimulating hormone (FSH)-dependent marker oestradiol in patients following pituitary desensitization and treatment with recombinant FSH (rFSH). This preparation lacks luteinizing hormone (LH), which is essential for thecal cell androgen secretion and thus oestradiol production. Our study has assessed oestradiol and… CONTINUE READING
