Abstract
Due to the ?flare effect? associated with the flare protocol, variation in the degree of follicular maturation during stimulation may result in differences in follicle response as compared to the luteal protocol which is based on maximal pituitary suppression and synchronization of follicular maturation. In this study, besides other methods, Anti-Mullerian Hormone (AMH), a novel marker for ovarian reserve, was used as a tool to evaluate the ovarian responsiveness to stimulation.

Abstract
This book helps youth function in an increasingly violent and less secure world. Explores important topics such as: The combination of forces that create "human volcanoes" who explode with rage and violence; The "hidden" violence that permeates our entertainment, news, and language. Because we've all become desensitized to this destructive force, we must learn to see the media with new eyes; How tolerating behaviors such as teasing, sarcasm, and bullying, which often leave emotional scars, actually encourages future acts of violence; Specific steps young people can take to reduce violence in their personal behavior, their relationships with family and friends, and in their schools and communities.

Abstract
The present study was conducted to investigate the hypothesis that membrane phosphoinositide breakdown may participate in the actions of luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone (LHRH) on hormone production in the rat ovary. In granulosa cells prelabeled with [³H]-arachidonic acid or [³H]-inositol, treatment with LHRH increased the accumulation of radiolabeled inositol lipids, diacylglycerol and free arachidonic acid, but luteinizing hormone (LH) or cholera toxin did not exert the same effect. Activation of protein kinase C by the phorbol ester, 12-0-tetradecanoyl phorbol-13-acetate (TPA) had a stimulatory action on membrane phosphoinositide breakdown.

Abstract
Atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) of atrial myocyte origin, has been shown to play a role in the diuresis, natriuresis, and antagonism of angiotensin and vasopressin. However, it is now apparent that in addition to the production of the peptide in the heart and in its role in fluid and electrolyte homeostasis, it is also produced in the central nervous system participating in the regulation of pituitary hormone secretion. Administration of ANP through both central and peripheral routes has been shown to inhibit secretion of luteinizing hormone (LH) in the gonadectomized rat model.

This DVD contains four programs; three for siblings of different ages and developmental levels, and one for their parents. The sibling programs are for children ages 4-7, ages 7-12 and ages 12 to adult. This video shows siblings that other kids are facing the same challenges they face, and explores a range of ways the kids interviewed have learned to get along with and enjoy their brothers and sisters. The video also can help parents understand the special needs of their neurotypical children. The segment for siblings ages 4-7 features puppets and the segments for older siblings feature interviews with brother and sisters. The segment for parents includes interviews with mothers and fathers.
