The sex ratio of pregnancies complicated by hospitalisation for hyperemesis gravidarum
Evaluated the sex ratio among pregnancies complicated by first trimester hyperemesis gravidarum and extend previous findings to include a measure of severity to evaluate the severity of the condition.
Recurrence risk in hyperemesis gravidarum
Objectives  To compare the risk of hyperemesis gravidarum in second pregnancies in women with and without hyperemesis in their first pregnancy, and to determine if this risk changes with changes in
Transient hyperthyroidism of hyperemesis gravidarum
The clinical, biochemical and thyroid antibody profile in women with transient hyperthyroidism of hyperemesis gravidarum is characterised.
Gender differences of placental dysfunction in severe prematurity
This work investigated whether a sex difference exists in findings at placental histology of extreme prematurity, and found no evidence of such a difference.
Hyperemesis Gravidarum and the Sex of the Offspring
Findings provide evidence that pregnant women with a diagnosis of hyperemesis gravidarum in the first trimester give birth to a higher proportion of female newborns than do all mothers, regardless of whether they are hospitalized.
Hyperemesis gravidarum and fetal gender: a retrospective study
It can be concluded that women presenting with HG are more likely to have a female fetus and that women with HG and afemale fetus tend to a higher level of ketonuria and an increased number of hospital admissions.
The fetal sex ratio and metabolic, biochemical, haematological and clinical indicators of severity of hyperemesis gravidarum
Female fetuses were significantly associated with hyperemesis in this population as well as associated with severe ketonuria and high urea, and 83% (95% CI 66–93) of the fetus were female.

Hyperemesis gravidarum: current concepts and management
A general outline of the hyperemesis gravidarum, its relation to the gastrointestinal system and thyroid, mild and rare severe complications, and conventional treatment versus newer options are discussed.

Although HEG appears to be more common and more severe in the presence of a female fetus, male fetuses appear to beMore susceptible to the adverse effects of HEG on pregnancy outcome.

Unilateral glaucoma in carotid occlusive disease.
The realization that hemorrhagic or secondary glaucoma could develop following ischmic arterial disease led to the detection of unrecognized carotid occlusions in the 2 patients.
Effect of carotid endarterectomy on the ocular circulation and on ocular symptoms unrelated to emboli.
Correlation of the osteoblastic phenotype with prostate‐specific antigen expression in metastatic prostate cancer: implications for paracrine growth
Non‐parametric statistical analysis revealed a highly significant link between low‐PSA metastatic prostate cancer and osteolytic bone lesions and raises the possibility that the osteoblastic phenotype of prostate cancer derives in part from PSA‐dependent proteolysis of IGF‐binding proteins within bone matrix.
Clinical significance of the ophthalmic artery in carotid artery disease
It is supported that the clinical role of ophthalmic artery collateral varied between asymptomatic and symptomatic patients, and patients with reversed OA flow had more often subsequent cerebral ischemic events than those with forward flow.
External Carotid Artery in Internal Carotid Artery Occlusion. Angiographic, Therapeutic, and Prognostic Considerations
In twelve patients who developed delayed recurrent cerebral or retinal ischemia ipsilateral to their internal carotid artery occlusion, there were found obstructive and/ or ulcerative plaques involving the common and/or external carotids.
Serum insulin-like growth factor-binding protein-2 (IGFBP-2) is increased and IGFBP-3 is decreased in patients with prostate cancer: correlation with serum prostate-specific antigen.
It is suggested that IGFBPs may be involved in growth modulation of prostate malignancy and that alterations in their serum levels may serve as a marker for prostate cancer.
