Abstract: Let $A\ge B\ge 0$ with $A>0$ and let $t\in[0,1]$ and $q\ge 0$. As a generalization of a result due to Furuta, it is shown that the operator function

\begin{displaymath}G_{p,q,t}(A,B,r,s)\!=\!A^{-r/2}\{A^{r/2} (A^{-t/2} B^p\!A^{-t/2})^s\! A^{r/2}\}^{(q-t+r)/[(p-t)s+r]}A^{-r/2} \end{displaymath}

is decreasing for $r\ge t$ and $s\ge 1$ if $p\ge\max\{q,t\}$. Moreover, if $1\ge p>t$ and $q\ge t$, then $G_{p,q,t}(A,B,r,s)$ is decreasing for $r\ge 0$ and $s\ge \frac{q-t}{p-t}$. The latter result is an extension of an earlier result of Furuta.
