Gonadotrophin-releasing hormone antagonists as effective as agonists with fewer serious harmful effects With new information available, authors of a Cochrane Systematic Review have revised their conclusions about the relative effectiveness of two different treatments used to help women become pregnant. They now conclude that giving women gonadotrophin-releasing hormone (GnRH) antagonists leads to similar live-birth rates compared with GnRH agonists. Previously they had concluded that women...

SLU scientist says findings could reframe how to fight aging A compound which acts in the opposite way as growth hormone can reverse some of the signs of aging, a research team that includes a Saint Louis University physician has shown. The finding may be counter-intuitive to some older adults who take growth hormone, thinking it will help revitalize them. Their research was published in the Dec. 6 online edition of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. The findings are...

A hormone responsible for the onset of puberty can end up stuck in the wrong part of the body if the nerve pathways responsible for its transport to the brain fail to develop properly, according to research funded by the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC). By tracking how nerve cells responsible for regulating sexual reproduction in mice find their way from their birth place in the foetal nose to their site of action in the adult brain, scientists from University...

Previous work in birds and sheep shows a wealth of clinical possibilities Nearly 10 years after the discovery that birds make a hormone that suppresses reproduction, University of California, Berkeley, neuroscientists have established that humans make it too, opening the door to development of a new class of contraceptive and possible treatments for cancer or other diseases. The hormone, gonadotropin inhibitory hormone (GnIH), has the opposite effect from gonadotropin releasing hormone, a key...

 University of California, Berkeley, researchers have found what they think is a critical and, until now, missing piece of the puzzle about how stress causes sexual dysfunction and infertility.Scientists know that stress boosts levels of stress hormones - glucocorticoids such as cortisol - that inhibit the body's main sex hormone, gonadotropin releasing hormone (GnRH), and subsequently suppresses sperm count, ovulation and sexual activity. The new research shows that stress also...

Researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, say they found how stress causes sexual dysfunction and infertility. Lead author Elizabeth Kirby, a graduate student, said scientists know stress boosts levels of stress hormones -- glucocorticoids such as cortisol -- that inhibit the body's main sex hormone, gonadotropin releasing hormone. This subsequently suppresses sperm count, ovulation and sexual activity. The study, published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of...

Chronic stress can lead to physical health problems as well as behavioral problems including anxiety, depression and infertility, U.S. researchers said. Lead researcher Mark Wilson of the Yerkes National Primate Research Center and Emory University in Atlanta found corticotropin releasing factor is a key neurohormone involved in stress response. "Corticotropin releasing factor is located in several different brain regions, serving different functions," Wilson said in a statement. "Its...

The hypothalamus is an organ that serves as an important link, along the hypothalamic-hypophyseal axis, between the nervous system and the endocrine system. It is located within the cranial cavity, in the cerebrum, right below the thalamus. It also forms the floor of the third ventricle in the brain. It contains neural pathways, blood vessels, glial cells, and secretory cells—all of which work together to control things like body temperature, hunger, thirst, sleep, and hormonal and...
