Modulation of central glucocorticoid receptors in short- and long-term experimental hyperthyroidism
Hyperthyroidism is associated with a significant increase in circulating glucocorticoid levels and hyperactivity of the hypothalamic–pituitary–adrenal (HPA) axis. The aim of this study was to examine whether the HPA axis ...
Arterial erectile dysfunction: Different severities of endothelial apoptosis between diabetic patients "responders" and "non responders" to sildenafil
Background: The low pharmacological response to phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitors represents an expression of higher endothelial damage in certain categories of patients with erectile dysfunction and high cardiovascular ...
Effects of short- and long-duration hypothyroidism on function of the rat hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis
The effects of hypothyroidism on the functional integrity of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis were investigated in adult male rats. HPA axis function was examined in vivo in sham-thyroidectomized male ...
Effects of experimentally induced hyperthyroidism on central hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis function in rats: In vitro and in situ studies
Hyperthyroidism is associated with hypercorticosteronemia, although the locus that is principally responsible for the hypercorticosteronism remains unclear. The purpose of this study was to assess the effects of hyperthyroidism ...
Effects of short- and long-duration hypothyroidism on hypothalamic- pituitary-adrenal axis function in rats: In vitro and in situ studies
The purpose of this study is to assess the effects of hypothyroidism on the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis; the functional integrity of each component of the HPA axis was examined in short-term and long-term ...
