ICSH

Abbreviation for interstitial cell-stimulating hormone.

LH (luteinizing hormone) or ICSH (interstitial cell-stimulating hormone)

a glycoprotein hormone produced by the anterior PITUITARY GLAND. In females it brings about ovulation on the stimulus of increasing OESTROGEN from the ovarian tissues, and causes a change in the GRAAFIAN FOLLICLE to form a CORPUS LUTEUM. LH also stimulates the corpus luteum to produce PROGESTERONE which in turn inhibits the production of LH and thus the subsequent production of progesterone (an example of a FEEDBACK MECHANISM), menstruation then taking place. In males it causes ANDROGENS to be secreted by the testis.

The International Committee for Standards in Haematology (ICSH) proposed guidelines for the standardisation of BM specimens and reports in 2008.4 On reviewing the literature, we found that there is limited published evidence regarding BMA procedure, particularly the technique of preparing the slides, and most of the references cited are based on personal experience and expert opinions.4 DiFrancesco et al.

Esta baja produccion de testosterona despues del reto con GnRH permite inferir que los cambios reflejados pueden ser ocasionados por diversas causas como lo son: 1) Deterioro sobre la adenohipofisis con incapacidad de liberar ICSH, 2) Aunque se produzca la hormona, esta presente un cambio en su conformacion lo que impediria su reconocimiento por parte de las celulas de Leydig, 3) que la tripanosomiasis promueve cambios sobre la produccion de hormonas adrenales que interfieren en la esteroidogenesis [12] o, 4) el dano es directo sobre las gonadas, especificamente las celulas de Leydig, traduciendose en la imposibilidad de los testiculos a ser estimulados para la produccion de testosterona.
