BACKGROUND: Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG) is produced by germ cell tumors, but can also be elevated in benign conditions such as primary hypogonadism, where hCG is produced by the pituitary gland. In our experience, the reference limits for hCG (Elecsys hCG+β-assay, Roche Diagnostics), were unnecessarily high and did not reflect levels encountered in clinical practice. We wanted to establish new reference limits to increase the clinical utility of the hCG-assay. METHODS: We analysed hCG in serum samples from a healthy adult population and in a cohort of testicular cancer survivors...

The risk of premature ovarian failure (POF) increases in association with alteration in immunological parameters and oxidative stress (OS). Adequate intake of trace elements is required for antioxidant property and immune defense mechanism. The aim of this study was to explore the involvement of trace elements, OS, and immunological parameters in POF. This was a cross-sectional, case-control study, involving 65 participants divided into the POF (n = 35) and control (n = 30) groups. Serum levels of Se, Zn, and Cu were determined along with hormonal, OS, and immunological markers...

Although salt-tolerant plants can be used to combat dryland salinity, these plants contain high concentrations of salt (NaCl), which may have deleterious effects if fed to livestock. Twenty-four Merino rams (9 mo of age) with similar body weight were equally allocated to two groups and fed a normal- or high-salt diet (0.5 and 12% NaCl, respectively) for 3 mo. Rams fed the high-salt diet had lower live weight gains, higher water intake, smaller testes (466 ± 48.4 vs 604 ± 51.1 g) and reductions (P <0...

Nutritional perturbation during gestation alters male reproductive development in rodents and sheep. In cattle both the developmental trajectory of the feto-placental unit and its response to dietary perturbations is dissimilar to that of these species. This study examined the effects of dietary protein perturbation during the peri-conception and first trimester periods upon reproductive development in bulls. Nulliparous heifers (n=360) were individually fed a high- or low-protein diet (HPeri and LPeri) from 60 days before conception...

PIVET recombinant FSH (rFSH) dosing algorithms have been designed for rFSH injection pens, providing optimal pregnancy and live birth productivity rates whilst minimizing risk and occurrence of ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS). Recently, long-acting recombinant gonadotrophin corifollitropin (Elonva) was approved for use in assisted reproduction, and welcomed by patients as the single injection allowed ovarian stimulation over 7 days without need for multiple injections. Consequently, another rFSH dosing algorithm was devised to incorporate Elonva, and these cycles were compared to standard rFSH agents, Gonal-f and Puregon...
