Cross-sex hormone therapy affects body fat distribution in transgender persons

Klaver Maartje , Dekker Marieke , Schreiner Thomas , Fisher Alessandra , T'sjoen Guy , den Heijer Martin

Introduction: Fat distribution is an important secondary sex characteristic, which is generally peripherally or pear-shaped (gynoid) in females and centrally or apple-shaped (android) in males. Total body fat increases in male-to-females (MtFs) and decreases in female-to-males (FtMs) during cross-sex hormone therapy (CSHT), approaching body fat amounts of the desired sex. However, changes in android or gynoid fat distribution might be a better measure for masculinization and f...

Objectives: The transition from the paediatric age to the adult is a particularly vulnerable period in patients with metabolic congenital diseases (mcd). In andalusia two adultsÂ’ units exist (seville and malaga) for the follow-up of these patients. Our aim in this study was to evaluate the current series of attended patients.Material and methods: We evaluated all patients transferred to the adult units since 2008. The clinical records were analyzed ...

Scanning electron microscopy of adrenal gland after laser ablation

Kemoclidze Konstantin , Pukhov Denis , Aleksandrov Yuri , Tiumina Natalya

Purpose: The study evaluated the effects of laser ablation of adrenal glands and results of regeneration using low-vacuum scanning electron microscopy for modeling the effects of laser ablation on pathological focus in the adrenal glands.Methods/design: A study performed on the rats (n=19, male, Wistar line) with weighing 335.3±24.9 g. At 14 of them (control 5 intact rat) under general anaesthetic was performed local laser ablation part of ...

Several instances of RNA-mediated inheritance of phenotypic variation have been reported, among them metabolic disorders. We and others have observed that microinjection into naive fertilized mouse eggs of total sperm RNAs of obese and diabetic males maintained on high-fat diet induce the same pathological variation in the offspring. A role of noncoding RNAs is currently the prevailing hypothesis.The sperm RNA content is complex. It depends on environmen...
