Gonadotropin releasing hormones. Clinical applications in gynecology

, : Gonadotropin releasing hormones. Clinical applications in gynecology. Journal of Reproductive Medicine 35(12): 1097-1107

Since the identification and synthesis of gonadotropin releasing hormones (GnRH) 19 years ago, over 2,000 GnRH analogs have been synthesized and evaluated for the treatment of a variety of conditions requiring temporary, reversible suppression or stimulation of gonadotropin secretion. Effective stimulation of the gonads requires pulsatile administration of a GnRH agonist, preferably the native decapeptide itself. For gonadal suppression, superagonists have proven to be highly effective. Intensive studies currently under way promise new and more innovative clinical applications of these compounds.

The discreteness of cell fates is an inherent and fundamental feature of multicellular organisms. Here we show that cross-antagonistic mechanisms of actions of MyoD and PPARγ, which are the master regulators of muscle and adipose differentiation,...

This study documented gastric fluid acidity in ambulatory surgical patients 30-120 min after they had taken a 300-mg tablet of ranitidine, as changes specific to this relatively brief dose-to-sampling interval previously had not been delineated. A...
