Clinical importance of antiprolactinaemic treatment of functional infertility (author's transl)

Reported in this paper is the effectiveness of antiprolactinaemic treatment of 40 infertile women. All case histories revealed previous unsuccessful attempts to induce ovulation. Antiprolactinaemic treatment was in all cases preced by RIA determination of prolactin and gonadotrophin. Prolactin levels were found to be somewhat increase in 19 cases, while 21 women were normal. The gonadotrophin plasma levels usually were closer to the lower limits of normal values. The presence of hypophyseal adenoma had been ruled out beforehand. Long-time treatment was based on the administration of 5 mg Parlodel/die. The effect was excellent in all cases of hyperprolactinaemia, but response was recorded, as well, from a group of patients with normal prolactin levels. Galactorrhoea ceased to exist in all cases. Clomiphen was applied again to induce ovulation in those patients who had not responded at all or developed only bleeding without ovulation. That treatment proved to be effective in several cases.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.
