AbstractAim of testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) is to improve symptoms and signs of testosterone deficiency including decreased libido, erectile dysfunction, depressed mood, anaemia, loss of muscle and bone mass, by increasing serum testosterone levels to physiologic range. TRT has been used in the last 70 years and overtime, numerous preparations and formulations have been developed to improve pharmacokinetics (PKs) and patient compliance. The routes of delivery approved for use in western world include buccal, nasal, sub dermal, transdermal, and intramuscular (IM). The aim of this narrative review is to describe an...

All studies comparing LA versus OA for PHEO were included.ResultsOverall, fourteen studies including 743 patients (LA 391; OA 352) were included. LA might have smaller tumor size (WMD -0.92 cm, 95% CI -1.09 to -0.76; p

We examined human lung tissue from COPD patients and normal control subjects, and found a substantial increase in p16-expressing alveolar cells in COPD patients. Using a transgenic mouse deficient for p16, we demonstrated that lungs of mice lacking p16 were structurally and functionally resistant to CS-induced emphysema due to activation of IGF1/Akt regenerative and protective signaling.
