Clomiphene Citrate for the Treatment of Hypogonadism.

Sex Med Rev 2018 Dec 3. Epub 2018 Dec 3.

Department of Urology, University of Virginia, Charlottesville, VA, USA.

Introduction: Clomiphene citrate (CC) is a selective estrogen receptor modulator that has been used for the treatment of hypogonadism in men since the 1970s. It acts centrally to increase secretion of luteinizing hormone and follicle-stimulating hormone, thereby increasing testosterone production and serum levels. Unlike testosterone replacement therapy, CC does not suppress the hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal axis, preserving intratesticular testosterone production and spermatogenesis. Read More

The Ascent of Mineralocorticoid Receptor Antagonists in Diabetic Nephropathy.

Curr Clin Pharmacol 2018 Nov 15. Epub 2018 Nov 15.

Department of Clinical Pharmacology, SRM MCH &RC, Kattankulathur, Chennai, Tamil Nadu. India.

Diabetic nephropathy (DN) is defined as a decline in the renal function and an increase in the amount of albuminuria (>300 mg/day). The well-established first-line drug therapies for DN include angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor (ACEi) and angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs) and the second line drug therapies include calcium channel blockers or diuretics. The interruption of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS) by ACEi and ARBs has been beneficial in reducing the progression of renal diseases; however, there is an increase in the levels of aldosterone due to the aldosterone escape phenomenon.

Background The aim of the study was to evaluate the dynamic thiol/disulfide homeostasis (TDH) with a new method in patients with pubertal gynecomastia and also to investigate the relationship between sex hormones. Methods Thiol/disulfide homeostasis, involving native thiol (SH), disulfide (SS) and total thiol (SS + SH), was evaluated between 20 adolescent boys with gynecomastia in mid-puberty and 50 healthy adolescents, who were matched for age, body mass index (BMI) and pubertal stage. The correlations of total serum testosterone (TT) and estradiol (E2) levels with the oxidative parameters were also determined. Read More

J Am Coll Radiol 2018 Nov;15(11S):S313-S320

Panel Chair, Emory University Hospital, Atlanta, Georgia.

Although the majority of male breast problems are benign with gynecomastia as the most common etiology, men with breast symptoms and their referring providers are typically concerned about whether or not it is due to breast cancer. If the differentiation between benign disease and breast cancer cannot be made on the basis of clinical findings, or if the clinical presentation is suspicious, imaging is indicated. The panel recommends the following approach to breast imaging in symptomatic men. Read More
