Study of Sex Hormone-binding Globulin Gene Polymorphism and Risk of Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus in Egyptian Men

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2014.088
Pages: 
338–43
Synopsis: 
Sex hormone-binding globulin gene polymorphisms are associated with higher risk of Type 2 diabetes mellitus in Egyptian men, through lowering circulating levels of sex hormone-binding globulin and consequently lowering testosterone and elevating oestradiol levels, which may be linked to insulin resistance.

Testosterone Level in Testicular Cancer Patients after Chemotherapy

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2016.060
Pages: 
487–94
Synopsis: 
This study investigated the effects of chemotherapy on testosterone levels in testicular cancer patients. The hormone levels affected due to chemotherapy were differentiated from the effects of the tumour itself by comparing the hormone levels before the onset of chemotherapy to levels measured during and after completion of chemotherapy.

ABSTRACT

Background: The use of chemotherapy for the treatment of cancer began at the start of the 20th century in an attempt to narrow the universe of chemicals that affect the disease. Metastatic testicular cancer has always been sensitive to chemotherapy.
