Welcome to Jamballa

Jamballa is my personal homepage, containing lots and lots of data of little to no interest to the world. This is one of these utterly pointless sites that will tell the reader a lot about a completely insignificant, non-famous person. To all those people who hate these sites: Nobody is forcing you to read any of this.

On this site I just collect all the infos that might tell people who are curious who I am. I am blunt and honest, in real life I scare people away without even trying. I am often regarded being rude and offensive. Some hate me for it, others love because of it. If you are easily offended, you might want to leave - unless of course you are someone who enjoys being offended.

I mention what I am currently working on, what I would like to do one day, what I like to eat, watch and listen to. As I am big on free speech (and not just when it is something positive) so I say what I think about lots of things, especially when it is something that bothers me. There are enough people who play nice and say yes to everything.

What's new?

I simplified the menue on the left, not too happy with it. Before I can really use all the parent, active parent and other extra stuff I need more time to learn about css and understand the structure. So for now I hope as simple as it is it also makes navigating the site easy.

I wish I could say that I have used the countless weeks since I first installed this site to fill my homepage to the brim with interesting content. That is, however, not the case.

The Layout is not really the kicker but I could not come up with something more fitting for the time being. In the end it turned out better than I had hoped.

Currently, real life is very busy and I am recovering from a nasty flu. Whenever, I find time and muse, I shall add more bits of information here. As always I got thousands of ideas but nothing concrete and too little time to implement them all.

The news module was installed. Exciting. This news article is not using the Summary field and therefore there is no link to read more. But you can click on the news heading to read only this article.

The Recombinant Follicle Stimulating Hormone

In vitro fertilisation (IVF) is one of the several techniques being used for the treatment of infertility. In the early days it was used for treatment of infertility caused by inoperable tubal blockage. Through the years it became evident that a wider range of infertility patients can be treated by IVF.

In order to obtain ova for IVF, controlled ovarian hyperstimulation (COH) for ovulation induction is performed. COH results in more ova being available leading to better pregnancy rates and less side effects. Several substances are available to induce ovulation: clomiphen citrate, human menopausal gonadotrophin (hMG), human chorionic gonadotrophin (hCG), etc. Recently a recombinant follicle stimulation hormone (rFSH) has been developed which gives hope for even better results.

Follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) can be obtained by several techniques. One of them is by purifying urine from menopausal women and extract FSH and luteinizing hormone (LH). But LH may have a negative effect on ovulation induction. Therefore it is necessary to extract only FSH from the urine. Another technique to purify FSH is by using recombinant DNA technique.1 This technique has better results as it is not contaminated with other hormones and differences among batches will minimise.

An effective method of treatment can be found at:

In spite of infertility treatment, ovulation induction is also used to treat diseases such as polycystic ovary syndrome (PCO syndrome). PCO can be defined as LH-dependent hyperandrogenism. The syndrome has abnormalities in four endocrinologic active compartments :
