OBJECTIVE To determine, in a sheep model, the effect of a short-term progestative treatment on growth dynamics and functionality of induced corpora lutea. DESIGN Observational, model study. SETTING Public university. PATIENT(S) Sixty adult female sheep. INTERVENTION(S) Synchronization and induction of ovulation with progestogens and prostaglandin analogues; ovarian ultrasonography, blood sampling, and ovariectomy. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE(S) Determination of pituitary function and… CONTINUE READING
