Intrauterine grafting in rats of autologous and homologous adult rat skin
Adult skin autografts placed in the rat's uterus were maintained during periods up to 150 days. Implantations occurred only in the contralateral (control) horns. Presence of the ovaries was necessary to the survival and ...
Contraception through the use of intrauterine metals. I. Copper as an adjunct to the "T" device. The endouterine copper "T"
Clinical evaluation of the contraceptive effectiveness of the endouterine copper "T" has been extended to include "T" devices bearing copper wire having surface areas of 120 mm.2 and of 200 mm.2 copper, respectively. Within ...
Alterations in fertility induced by unilateral intrauterine instillation of cytotoxic compounds in rats
Cytotoxic agents, cadmium, iodoacetate, thio-TEPA, podophyllin, colchicine, and alcohol, were instilled in one uterine horn of the rat to observe their subsequent effect on fertility. Cadmium and iodoacetate interfere with ...
Fetal heart rate throughout pregnancy
Serial fetal heart rate (FHR) determinations were made from early pregnancy to term in 24 healthy fetuses by means of an ultrasonic device. A decreasing FHR pattern was noticed from the eleventh through the thirtieth weeks, ...
An overview of IUD research and implications for the future

Contraceptive efficacy of two different metals using a modified seven vector
Early studies with copper suggested that few improvements in overall IUD performance could be obtained with the use of more than 200 mm2 of copper. Thus, the use of other metals paired with copper has been investigated. ...
Quinacrine hydrochloride pellets: Preliminary data on a nonsurgical method of female sterilization
