E180splice mutation in the growth hormone receptor gene in a Chilean family with growth hormone insensitivity: A probable common mediterranean ancestor
(Freund Publishing House Ltd, 2008)
Mutations in the GH receptor gene have been identified as the cause of growth hormone insensitivity syndrome (GHIS), a rare autosomal recessive disorder. We studied the clinical and biochemical characteristics and the ...
Hormonal programming across the lifespan
Hormones influence countless biological processes across an animal's lifespan. Many hormone-mediated events occur within developmental sensitive periods, during which hormones have the potential to cause permanent ...
Regulation of Cardiovascular Metabolism by Hormones and Growth Factors
(Hindawi Pub., 2015)
Interrelationships among serum thyroxine, triiodothyronine, reverse triiodothyronine, and thyroid-stimulating hormone in iodine-deficient pregnant women and their offspring: Effects of iodine supplementation
Adaptation to iodine deficiency (ID) requires changes in thyroid and pituitary function that have been well characterized in animals. The present studies were undertaken to analyze the relationships between serum thyroid ...
Growth hormone (GH) responses to GH-releasing peptide and to GH-releasing hormone in GH-deficient children
The GH-releasing peptides (GHRPs) are a family of hexa- and heptapeptides that specifically stimulate GH secretion in normal adults and children. They would be an attractive potential form of therapy for GH deficiency (GHD) ...
Effects of luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone analog-induced pubertal delay in growth hormone (GH)-deficient children treated with GH: Preliminary results
(Endocrine Society, 1997)
To study the effect of delaying epiphyseal fusion on the growth of GH- deficient children, we studied 14 pubertal, treatment naive. GH-deficient patients (6 girls and 8 boys) in a prospective, randomized, placebo- controlled ...
Cholesterol metabolism: Increasingly complex El metabolismo del colesterol: Cada vez más complejo
Cholesterol is an important molecule; it is necessary for the biosynthesis of steroidal hormones, bile salts and to maintain the stability of biological membranes in animal cells. However, its excess is negative and is ...
Patterns of infancy growth and metabolic hormonal profile are different in very-low-birth-weight preterm infants born small for gestational age compared to those born appropriate for gestational age
Background/Aims: An increased preterm birth survival rate is associated with long-term neurological and metabolic risks; thus, our aim was to evaluate whether early patterns of infancy anthropometry and metabolic hormonal ...
