Disease relevance of BOLL


Psychiatry related information on BOLL

  • Risk contexts and risk behaviors in the Euregion Maas-Rhein: the Boule de Neige intervention for AIDS prevention among drug users [6].

High impact information on BOLL


Biological context of BOLL

  • Ninety-seven patients who did not respond to these conventional treatments were investigated by voiding cystourethrography, bougie à boule, and urodynamic study [9].
  • We determined the levels of BOULE transcripts in the testes of azoospermic patients, and evaluated the relationship between BOULE transcript levels and patients' testicular phenotypes, clinical parameters and sperm retrieval results [10].
