  1. 1. Ovarian Reserve and Assisted Reproduction

    Author : Thomas Brodin; Jan Holte; Matts Olovsson; Lars Berglund; Juha Tapanainen; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; AFC; AMH; anti-Müllerian hormone; antral follicle count; follicle-stimulating hormone; FSH; ICSI; infertility; intracytoplasmic sperm injection; in vitro fertilization; IVF; LH; live birth; luteinizing hormone; menstrual cycle; menstrual cycle length; ovarian reserve; pregnancy; reproductive endocrinology; reproductive technology; Medicinsk vetenskap; Medical Science;

    Abstract : Treatment success in IVF-ICSI is mainly limited by female age, but differences in ovarian reserve (OR; the remaining pool of oocytes and their quality) between individuals modify treatment prerequisites among women of similar age. OR may be assessed by OR tests (ORTs). READ MORE

  2. 2. Polycystic Ovary Syndrome and Pregnancy : Prenatal Exposures and Pregnancy Complications

    Author : Heiddis Valgeirsdóttir; Anna-Karin Wikström; Inger Sundström Poromaa; Theodora Kunovac Kallak; Marie Blomberg; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Polycystic ovary syndrome; PCOS; pregnancy; epidemiology; prenatal exposures; pregnancy complications; Anti-Müllerian hormone; AMH; preterm birth; stillbirth; Obstetrik och gynekologi; Obstetrics and Gynaecology;

    Abstract : Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is the most common endocrine disorder in women of fertile age. The aetiology of PCOS is not fully understood and might be affected by foetal exposures. Women with PCOS have an increased risk of pregnancy complications, but information on rare severe complications is scarce. READ MORE

  3. 3. Polycystic ovary syndrome - morphologic and dynamic evaluation by magnetic resonance imaging

    Author : Henrik Leonhardt; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; polycystic ovary syndrome; PCOS; magnetic resonance imaging; MRI; ultrasonography; three-dimensional imaging; adrenal hyperplasia; body composition; uterine morphology; uterine peristalsis; ovarian morphology; ovarian perfusion; antral follicle count; AMH; diagnostic accuracy;

    Abstract : Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a complex endocrine disorder, affecting up to 15% of women of reproductive age. The syndrome is characterized by oligo-anovulation, hyperandrogenism and polycystic ovaries. What constitutes the best definition of PCOS is still a matter of debate. READ MORE

  4. 4. Hormone concentrations during pregnancy and maternal risk of epithelial ovarian cancer

    Author : Helena Schock; Eva Lundin; Annika Idahl; Renée Turzanski Fortner; Anne Zeleniuch-Jacquotte; Shelley S Tworoger; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; epithelial ovarian cancer; sex steroid hormones; IGF-I; placental GH; AMH; pregnancy; prospective study; patologi; Pathology;

    Abstract : Background: The aim of this thesis was to study the relationship of pre-diagnostic circulating concentrations of sex steroid hormones (androgens, estradiol, 17-hydroxyprogesterone, and progesterone), growth factors (insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I), placental growth hormone (GH)), sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG), and anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH) with risk of epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) overall, and by tumor invasiveness and histology. A longitudinal study was used to assess patterns of hormonal changes during a single pregnancy, and in two consecutive pregnancies. READ MORE

  5. 5. Endometriosis and ovarian reserve : inflammation and prognostic markers

    Author : Henrik Falconer; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : Endometriosis; infertility; baboon; animal model; FSH; AMH; ovarian reserve;

    Abstract : Introduction: Endometriosis is a common, benign gynecological disease, associated with pelvic pain and infertility. It is generally thought to be caused by retrograde shedding of menstrual tissue with subsequent attachment to peritoneal surfaces. READ MORE
