  1. 1. The impact of genetic, environmental and life-style factors on male reproductive function

    University dissertation from Department of Clinical Sciences, Lund University

    Author : Jonas Richthoff; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; male reproductive function; testicular cancer; smoking; Medicin människa och djur ; Medicine human and vertebrates ; cryptorchidism; sperm concentration;

    Abstract : Recent studies have indicated a decline in sperm number in the western world during the past 50 years, sperm concentration changing from 113 to 66 millions per mL. Furthermore, significant geographical differences in male reproductive function have been observed. READ MORE

  2. 2. Reproductive function in male childhood cancer survivors

    University dissertation from Patrik Romerius, Lund University, Faculty of Medicine

    Author : Patrik Romerius; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Childhood Cancer SurvivorsFertilityHypogonadismSperm DNA IntegrityAzoospermiaEstrogen Receptor alpha polymorphism;

    Abstract : Childhood cancer (CC) survival rate has increased over the last couple of decades, today approaching 80%. Therefore more attention has been paid to late effects. One important issue for CC survivors (CCS) is impaired reproductive function. READ MORE

  3. 3. Genetic, environmental and life-style effects on androgen receptor function

    University dissertation from Lund University

    Author : Christel Björk; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; reproductive function; smoking; 4 .4-DDE; persistent organic pollutants; prostate cancer; Androgen receptor; prostate specific antigen; CAG polymorphism; TCDD; aryl hydrocarbon receptor; CB-153;

    Abstract : Androgens regulate male reproductive function and their effects are mediated through the androgen receptor (AR). The AR gene contains a polymorphic CAG repeat, encoding a stretch of glutamines, affecting the transcriptional activity of the AR. READ MORE

  4. 4. Fetal Cardiac Function and Venous Circulation - Experiences with Velocity Vector Imaging

    University dissertation from Research Unit for Urogynaecology and Reproductive Pharmacology

    Author : Charlotte Dahlbäck; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; pregnancy; fetus; strain; speckle tracking; cardiac function; umbilical vein; venous; ductus venosus; Doppler;

    Abstract : Placental dysfunction resulting in intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR) is a common complication of pregnany and severe IUGR, with ensuing fetal hypoxia is an important cause of perinatal mortality and morbidity. Doppler studies of fetal and maternal vessels are routinely used for fetal surveillance and alterations in fetal venous blood flow has been demonstrated as a late sign of fetal compromise. READ MORE

  5. 5. Reproductive function in young Swedish men - Time trend, prenatal and adult exposure to smoking and phthalates

    University dissertation from Molecular Reproductive Medicine

    Author : Jonatan Axelsson; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Semen analysis; maternal exposure; paternal exposure; smoking; phthalate;

    Abstract : A decrease in male reproductive function, including sperm counts, during the second half of the 20th century, has been postulated. During this period, testicular cancer has increased several-fold. Environmental and lifestyle-related factors have been proposed as explanations for a possible negative trend in male reproductive function. READ MORE
