Gonadotrophin treatment was given to 81 patients with functional sterility. Individualised dosage proved possible, depending on close therapeutic monitoring. General input can be rationalised along with growing experience.--WHO Group I included 7.4 per cent of the patients reviewed. The pregnancy rate of this Group was 83 per cent. WHO Group II included 90.4 per cent. Their pregnancy rate was 37 per cent. Clomiphene failure was recorded from 79 per cent of the patients. The overall pregnancy rate amounted to 39.5 per cent, even with additional presence of tubal and andrological sterility factors. Overstimulation was recordable from 18.5 per cent of the probands. Multiple pregnancy occurred to 9.4 per cent. Rates of abortion could be kept as low as 9.4 per cent by early sick leave and progesterone substitution.--Young age of patient, short time of desire of children, and hypogonadotrophic normoprolactinaemic amenorrhoea proved to be the most favourable set of indications for gonadotrophin therapy.

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.
