Central precocious puberty (CPP) develops due to premature activation of the hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal (HPG) axis, resulting in early pubertal changes and rapid bone maturation. CPP is associated with lower adult height and increased risk for development of psychological problems. Standard treatment of CPP is based on postponement of pubertal development by blockade of the HPG axis with gonadotropin releasing hormone analogs (GnRHa) leading to abolition of gonadal sex hormones synthesis. Whereas the hormonal and auxological effects of GnRHa are well-researched, there is a lack of knowledge whether GnRHa treatment influences psychological functioning of treated children, despite the fact that prevention of psychological problems is used as one of the main reasons for treatment initiation...

BACKGROUND: Ovarian cancer is seventh most common cancer in women worldwide. Approximately 1.3% of women will be diagnosed with ovarian cancer at some point during their life time. The majority of tumours arise from surface of the ovary (epithelial). Two thirds of these women will present with advanced disease, requiring aggressive treatment, which includes debulking surgery (removal of as much disease as possible) and chemotherapy. However, most women (75%) with advanced epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) will relapse following surgery and chemotherapy...

Combined therapy with gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) analogue and growth hormone (GH) has been used to increase the height of adolescents who are not GH deficient and who have normally timed puberty. Its use, however, is still controversial. For 2 years simultaneously, we treated eight healthy girls with very low predicted adult height (PAH < 145 cm) who were entering into normally timed puberty. The GnRH analogue triptorelin pamoate (Decapeptyl, 100 microg/kg intramuscularly every 4 weeks) and GH (0...

Although androgenic hormones decrease HDLC concentration, no direct evidence has linked them to atherosclerosis. The present study was undertaken to extend our ability to assess risk associated with androgen induced lipoprotein(Lp) changes by simultaneously gathering information about postprandial triglyceridaemia (PPT), LDL particle size, HDL and Lp(a) in men either taking exogenous androgens or with suppressed endogenous androgen concentrations. The experimental groups comprised nine male bodybuilders who self-administered anabolic-androgenic steroids (AAS) for a mean period of 6...
