The Uterine Artery Pulsatility Index as an Accurate Index for the Assessment of Puberty

di Lascio Alessandra , Colantoni Caterina , Carla Meroni Silvia Laura , Gianninoto Moira , Paesano Pierluigi , Russo Gianni

Background: The onset of physiological puberty in females is characterized by physical, hormonal, and genital changes. However, a single specific parameter to early identify these modifications does not exist; its identification could be extremely useful in the evaluation of pubertal development disorders. The uterine artery pulsatility index (PI), defined as systolic peak – diastolic peak/average speed of maximum flow, is an expression of vascular compliance in the uteri...

The Uterine Artery Pulsatility Index in Evaluation of the GnRH-Analog Treatment Efficacy in Central Precocious Puberty

di Lascio Alessandra , Colantuoni Caterina , Carla Meroni Silvia Laura , Gianninoto Moira , Paesano Pierluigi , Russo Gianni

Background: GnRH analogs (GnRHa) have been used in the management of central precocious puberty (CPP). The response to GnRHa treatment are evaluated by clinical, hormonal, and ultrasonographic criteria. However, a single parameter to define the adequacy of therapy is not defined. The uterine artery pulsatility index (PI), defined as systolic peak – diastolic peak/average speed of maximum flow, is an expression of vascular compliance in the uterine artery. Circulating estr...

Serum Bisphenol a Concentration and Premature Thelarche in Female Infants Aged 4-Month to 2-Year-Old

Yanlan Fang , Lianhui Chen , Li Liang

Background: Bisphenol A (BPA) is one of high production-volume chemicals and used extensively in consumer products, including food containers and epoxy food-can coatings. The primary source of BPA exposure in adults is via food and beverages, while among infants breast milk and polycarbonate feeding bottles are the predominant source of BPA exposure.Objectives and hypotheses: To estimate the association between serum BPA A and premature thelarche in fema...

Test on Kisspeptin Levels in Girls with Idiopathic Central Precocious Puberty and its Significance

Yang Yu , Xiong Xiang-Yu , Yang Li , Xie Li-Ling , Huang Hui

Objective: This paper is aimed to explore the significance of plasma kisspeptin level in diagnosis and therapeutic evaluation through the detection of kisspeption level of girls diagnosed with idiopathic central precocious puberty (ICPP) before treatment and after 6-months of treatment and girls with simple premature thelarche (PT).Methods: A total of 70 girls including 24 girls diagnosed with ICPP, 21 girls with PT and 25 normal girls were enrolled. ELI...

Serum Leptin, Ghrelin, and Adiponectin Levels in Relation to Body Composition in Rhythmic Gymnasts Entering into Puberty: a 3-year Follow-up Study

Tillmann Vallo , Vosaberg Kristel , JurimParm Anna-Liisa , Saar Meeli , Jurimae Toivo , Maasalu Katre , Neissaar Inga , Latt Evelin , Jurimae Jaak

The aim: Of this study was to describe longitudinal changes in body composition and serum leptin, ghrelin and adiponectin levels over 36-month period in prepubertal rhythmic gymnasts (RG) and their age-matched untrained controls (UC) entering into puberty.Methods: 35 RG (mean age 8.0±0.6 years) and 33 UC (8.2±0.6 years) were followed at 12-month intervals for the next 3 years. Height, weight, pubertal stage, body composition by DXA and serum le...

Impact of BMI on GnRH Stimulated LH Provocation Peak in Girls with Central Precocious Puberty

Fu Jun-Fen , Jin Ju-Hua , Prasad Heranmaye C , Zhou Xue-Lian , Dong Guan-Ping , Jiang You-Jun

Background: Excess adiposity may influence various aspects of pubertal development, including the timing of pubertal initiation and hormonal parameters during puberty.Objective and hypotheses: The aim of this study was to clarify the impact of BMI on LH secretion in response to GnRH stimulation test in girls diagnosed with central precocious puberty.Method: Girls with central precocious puberty, who underwent GnRH-stimulation test ...

Impact of Bisphenol-A on the Puberty of Female Rats

Linqi Chen

Background: It is now widely accepted that chemical pollutants in the environment can interfere with the endocrine system. The impact of endocrine disrupting chemicals on puberty disorders is concerned. bisphenol-A (BPA) has been measured in fetal plasma. There are different toxic effects with different doses of BPA.Objective and hypotheses: To observe vaginal opening day (VOD), hypothalamic kiss-1 gene and ovarian estrogen receptors (ER) gene expression...

Akin Leyla , Kendirci Mustafa , Narin Figen , Kurtoglu Selim , Saraymen Recep , Kondolot Meda , Ozkan Kocak Selda , Hatipoglu Nihal , Elmali Ferhan

Background: Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a common endocrinological disorder of unclear etiopathogenesis characterized by hormonal and reproductive abnormalities which may coexist with metabolic disturbances.Objective and hypotheses: To investigate the role of endocrine disruptor bisphenol A (BPA) in etiopathogenesis of PCOS in adolescent girls. Additionally, we wished to investigate the relationship between BPA and metabolic parameters, insulin re...

Increasing Incidence of Premature Thelarche in the Central Denmark Region? Who Evolve into Precocious Puberty?

Somod Mia Elbek , Vestergaard Esben Thyssen , Kristensen Kurt , Birkebaek Niels Holtum

Background: Premature thelarche (PT) may evolve into precocious puberty (PP). The incidence of PP in girls has increased during the last two decades. The epidemiology of PT in the first years of life is less well described.Objective and hypotheses: We aimed to identify 0–6 year old girls referred to paediatric evaluation for PT in order to examine if the number of girls with PT is increasing, and to describe clinical characteristics of the girls wit...
