Camille L. Aschwald, MS, RD Rosemary B. Catanzaro, MS, RD Edward P. Weiss, PhD Jeffrey A. Gavard, PhD Karen A. Steitz, MS, RD Dorothea J. Mostello, MD

Objective To determine how the frequency, timing, and magnitude of hyperglycemia are associated with large-for-gestational-age (LGA) infants in pregnancies complicated by type 1 diabetes.

Methods Charts from pregnant women with type 1 diabetes (n=70) were reviewed. Indices of maternal glycemic control were determined for seven gestational periods (weeks 7-10, 11-15, 16-19, 20-24, 25-28, 29-32, and 33-38) and compared between women who delivered LGA infants and appropriate-for-gestational-age (AGA) infants. more

REPRODUCTIVE HORMONES IN PLASMA OVER THE MENSTRUAL CYCLE IN PRIMARY DYSMENORRHOEA COMPARED TO HEALTHY SUBJECTS

Ragner Liedman, Stefan R Hansson, David Howe, Sarah Igidbashian, Alison Mcleod, Rachel J Russell, Mats Åkerlund

The pathogenesis of primary dysmenorrhoea is still poorly understood. The objective of this investigation was to study differences in plasma concentrations of reproductive hormones in women with primary dysmenorrhoea versus healthy controls. more

MYO-INOSITOL IN PATIENTS WITH POLYCYSTIC OVARY SYNDROME: A NOVEL METHOD FOR OVULATION INDUCTION.


Papaleo Enrico, Unfer Vittorio, Baillargeon Jean-Patrice, De Santis Lucia, Fusi Francesco, Brigante Claudio, Marelli Guido, Cino Ilaria, Redaelli Anna and Ferrari Augusto.

Background. Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCO’S) is often characterized by chronic oligoovulation or anovulation (usually manifested as oligomenorrhea or amenorrhea), and hyperandrogenism. Thirty to 40 percent of PCO’S women have impaired glucose tolerance, and a defect in the insulin signal pathway (inositol-containing phosphoglycan mediators) seems to be implicated in the pathogenesis of insulin resistance. more

Solomon D, Stoler M, Jeronimo J, Khan M, Castle P, Schiffman M.

OBJECTIVE: To estimate the diagnostic yield of endocervical curettage (ECC) when performed as part of a colposcopic procedure in the multicenter ASCUS-LSIL Triage Study (ALTS), a randomized trial of management strategies for women with equivocal or mildly abnormal cytology. more

REGULATION OF PITUITARY CELL FUNCTION BY ADIPONECTIN

Rodriguez-Pacheco F, Martinez-Fuentes AJ, Tovar S, Pinilla L, Tena-Sempere M, Dieguez C, Castano JP, Malagon MM

Adiponectin is a member of the family of adipose tissue-related hormones known as adipokines, which exerts anti-diabetic, anti-atherogenic, anti-inflammatory and anti-angiogenic properties. Adiponectin actions are primarily mediated through binding to two receptors expressed in several tissues, AdipoR1 and AdipoR2. Likewise, adiponectin expression has been detected in adipocytes as well as in a variety of extra-adipose tissues, including the chicken pituitary. more
