  1. Molecular forms of soluble HLA in body fluids: potential determinants of body odor cues.

    Genetica 104(3):275 (1998) PMID 10386394

    The major histocompatibility complex (MHC) has been linked to encoding for individual olfactory identity. Experiments in mice and rats proved that behavior and mating were, at least in part, determined by genes within the MHC. This study was aimed at investigating whether sHLA are excreted in human...
  2. A woman's body and her vascular system are unique. How should we care for them?

    Comprehensive Therapy 30(3):155 (2004) PMID 15793315

    Women must now gain the phenomenal care justified by new biologic evidence and a comprehensive understanding of fundamental differences from men-that go well beyond secondary sexual characteristics.
  3. Female fecundity in highland Papua New Guinea.

    Social Biology 37(1-2):26 (1990) PMID 2270505

    We apply a stochastic model of the determinants of fecundability (the monthly probability of conception) to endocrinological data collected among the Gainj, a tribal population in highland Papua New Guinea. Based on previous research, the Gainj are known to have age patterns of ovarian function that...
  4. Pattern of menstrual cycle length in south Indian women: a prospective study.

    Social Biology 39(3-4):306 (1992) PMID 1340049

    Data on 8,308 menstrual cycles from 1,740 South Indian women prospectively recorded were analyzed to identify the effect of age on menstrual cycle length. The distribution was skewed to the right with the mean (SD) cycle length of 31.8 (6.7) days. The range of 25-40 days constituted 10-82 per cent o...
  5. Early visual processing over the menstrual cycle: the tilt aftereffect.

    Neuropsychobiology 24(4):192 (1990) PMID 2135710

    We have previously shown that the tilt aftereffect (TAE) appears to respond to changes in central dopaminergic function. In this study, the TAE was investigated during the preovulatory and the premenstrual phases of the menstrual cycle. Results in the preovulatory phase mimicked those previously fou...
  6. Maternal determinants of birth weight: a population-based sample from Qingdao, China.

    Social Biology 42(3-4):175 (1995) PMID 8738544

    This analysis examines the relationship between maternal determinants and birth weight in a population-based birth cohort of 5,284 mothers with singleton births of 28 completed gestational weeks in Qingdao, China, in 1992. Multiple linear regression models suggest that the length of the menstrual cy...
  7. Methylmercury effects on reproduction and offspring size at birth.

    Reproductive Toxicology 1(4):267 (1987) PMID 2980392

    This article describes a study of the toxic, reproductive, and developmental effects of chronic methylmercury (MeHg) exposure in Macaca fascicularis monkeys. Adult and infant monkeys were studied using procedures to assess maternal and newborn blood Hg concentrations, menstrual cyclicity, conception...
  8. Black adolescent's source, quantity, and quality of sex related information.

    Journal of National Black Nurses' Association :... 3(2):29 (1989) PMID 2628551

    This investigation explored the impact of the sexual socialization of Black adolescents on teenage sexual behavior. Using a phenomenological approach, familial triads composed of adolescent daughter, mother, and grandmother were surveyed. The construct of sexual socialization was defined in terms of...
  9. Studies of reproductive cyclicity: evaluation of computer modeling as a tool.

    Reproductive Toxicology 1(3):229 (1987) PMID 2980387

    Assessment of toxic effects on human reproductive function using fetal health or teratogenic criteria presumes the conditions of parental fertility. Toxins that compromise fecundity through derangement of the menstrual cycle may require quite different models and criteria. Nonlinear dynamic interact...
  10. Surgery as a risk factor for breast cancer recurrence and metastasis: mediating mechanisms and clinical prophylactic approaches.

    Breast Disease 26:99 (2006) PMID 17473369

    We believe that the short postoperative period is critical for eliminating minimal residual disease (MRD), thus markedly impacting long term survival. Unfortunately, both animal and human studies have shown that surgery induces suppression of anti-metastatic cell-mediated immunity (CMI) at this crit...
