A premenopausal woman with a mucinous carcinoma of one ovary, and a mucinous adenoma of the other, together with secondary virilization, is reported. Preoperative levels of androstenedione, testosterone and dehydroepiandrosterone sulphate were high, suggesting the presence of a virilizing...

Obesity, acanthosis nigricans, insulin resistance, and hyperandrogenemia: pediatric perspective and natural history.

The Journal of pediatrics

Richards GE, Cavallo A, Meyer WJ, Prince MJ, Peters EJ, Stuart CA, Smith ER.

We studied the syndrome of acanthosis nigricans, obesity, insulin resistance, and hyperandrogenemia in 22 patients. Although isolated case reports in adolescents have appeared, this syndrome has not received full recognition as a pediatric entity. Our patients (17 girls, five...

Dehydroepiandrosterone reduces serum low density lipoprotein levels and body fat but does not alter insulin sensitivity in normal men.

PMID: 2961787
J Clin Endocrinol Metab. 1988 Jan;66(1):57-61. doi: 10.1210/jcem-66-1-57.

To assess the effects of dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) on body fat mass, serum lipid levels, and tissue sensitivity to insulin, five normal men were given placebo and five normal men were given oral DHEA [1600 mg/day (554.7 mmol/day)] for 28...

[Androgen content of the blood of male hamadryas baboons over the course of a year].

Biulleten' eksperimental'noi biologii i meditsiny

Taranov AG, Goncharov NP.
PMID: 2934099
Biull Eksp Biol Med. 1985 Dec;100(12):647-9.

Annual blood plasma levels of testosterone, 5 alpha-dehydrotestosterone and dehydroepiandrosterone were measured in hamadryas baboon males using radioimmunoassay. Fluctuations characterized by a decrease in testosterone and 5 alpha-dehydrotestosterone concentrations in spring and an increase in their levels in autumn...

Prevalence of and markers for the attenuated form of congenital adrenal hyperplasia and hyperprolactinemia masquerading as polycystic ovarian disease.

Fertility and sterility

Benjamin F, Deutsch S, Saperstein H, Seltzer VL.
PMID: 3015693
Fertil Steril. 1986 Aug;46(2):215-21. doi: 10.1016/s0015-0282(16)49514-2.

To determine the prevalence of the attenuated form of congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) and hyperprolactinemia (HPPN) relative to polycystic ovarian disease (PCOD), 100 consecutive women presenting with the classic clinical features of PCOD were evaluated by basal hormonal profiles...

Disturbances of androgen secretion and metabolism in polycystic ovary syndrome.

Clinics in obstetrics and gynaecology

Lobo RA.
PMID: 2933204
Clin Obstet Gynaecol. 1985 Sep;12(3):633-47.

No matter how we define PCO, it is a heterogeneous clinical disorder. The common denominators of this and other overlapping clinical syndromes are the findings of chronic anovulation and androgen excess. Frequently, but not always, these events lead to...

Sex hormones and bone metabolism in postmenopausal rheumatoid arthritis treated with two different glucocorticoids.

The Journal of rheumatology

Montecucco C, Caporali R, Caprotti P, Caprotti M, Notario A.
PMID: 1294736
J Rheumatol. 1992 Dec;19(12):1895-900.

To investigate the effect of low doses of 2 different glucocorticoids on bone mass, sex hormone status and bone metabolic indices, a study was undertaken in 16 postmenopausal women with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) receiving < 15 mg/day of deflazacort...

Endocrine effects of aminoglutethimide plus hydrocortisone versus effects of high dose of hydrocortisone alone in postmenopausal metastatic breast cancer.

European journal of cancer & clinical oncology

Alexieva-Figusch J, de Jong FH, Lamberts WJ, van Gilse HA, Klign JG.
PMID: 2960533
Eur J Cancer Clin Oncol. 1987 Sep;23(9):1349-56. doi: 10.1016/0277-5379(87)90119-2.

Aminoglutethimide (Ag) has been used in different dosages with and without combined treatment with glucocorticoids for the suppression of peripheral plasma levels of steroidal hormones. In the present work we have estimated changes in peripheral steroid levels after 3...

The mechanism of hormone-sensitive breast cancer progression on antiestrogen therapy. Implications for treatment and protocol planning.

Archives of surgery (Chicago, Ill. : 1960)

Fifteen patients whose tumors progressed while they received tamoxifen citrate therapy were studied by serial determinations of serum levels of estrone (E1), estradiol (E2), and dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) obtained during progression after withdrawal from tamoxifen therapy and total endocrine ablation...

Effects of omega 3 fatty acids and vitamin E on hormones involved in carbohydrate and lipid metabolism in men.

Plasma concentrations of testosterone, dihydrotestosterone, delta 4-androstenedione, dehydroepiandrosterone and oestradiol-17 beta in the crab-eating monkey (Macaca fascicularis) from birth to adulthood.

Plasma testosterone, 5 alpha-dihydrotestosterone (DHT), delta 4-androstenedione, dehydroepiandrosterone (DHA) and oestradiol-17 beta concentrations of crab-eating macaques after birth were analysed by RIA. The profiles of plasma testosterone and DHT exhibited four phases: (1) a neonatal phase (0 to 3-4...
