[Theoretical principles and personal experiences in the use of a sequential stimulation test with arginine, gonadotropin-releasing hormone and thyrotropin-releasing hormone in healthy probands].Zentralbl Gynakol. 1985; 107(21):1282-95.ZG
The theoretical bases and the performance of a sequential stimulation test (SST) with 0.5 g arginine hydrochloride per kg body weight, 25 micrograms gonadotropin-releasing hormone and 200 micrograms thyreotropin-releasing hormone are described. The result of SST is shown for 17 healthy women with biphasic cyclus. Beside the basal hormone levels B (hypo-, normo- or hyperhormonal) the response A (no, inadaquate or adaquate response) to the stimulation resulting from the peak levels and netto increases is a valuation criteria.
