The effects of estrogens and antiestrogens on hormone-responsive human breast cancer in long-term tissue culture. (3/6438)

We have established or characterized six lines of human breast cancer maintained in long-term tissue culture for at least 1 year and have examined these lines for estrogen responsiveness. One of these cell lines, MCF-7, shows marked stimulation of macromolecular synthesis and cell division with physiological concentrations of estradiol. Antiestrogens are strongly inhibitory, and at concentrations greater than 3 X 10(-7) M they kill cells. Antiestrogen effects are prevented by simultaneous treatment with estradiol or reversed by addition of estradiol to cells incubated in antiestrogen. Responsive cell lines contain high-affinity specific estradiol receptors. Antiestrogens compete with estradiol for these receptors but have a lower apparent affinity for the receptor than estrogens. Stimulation of cells by estrogens is biphasic, with inhibition and cell death at concentrations of 17beta-estradiol or diethylstilbestrol exceeding 10(-7) M. Killing by high concentrations of estrogen is probably a nonspecific effect in that we observe this response with 17alpha-estradiol at equivalent concentrations and in the otherwise unresponsive cells that contain no estrogen receptor sites.  (+info)

Marker molecules of human endometrial differentiation can be hormonally regulated under in-vitro conditions as in-vivo. (4/6438)

An established cell culture system of isolated human endometrial stromal and epithelial cells has been used to study the effects of oestrogen and progesterone, as well as their antagonists, upon endometrial cells. Normal hormonal regulation in vivo was investigated simultaneously in endometrial tissue samples taken at different phases of the menstrual cycle. Several marker molecules analysed by immunohistochemistry appeared to depend strongly on endocrine regulation and could be traced in culture. Immunohistochemically, basic parameters of cell biology were identified in vitro, e.g. cell proliferation (Ki-67), adhesion molecules (beta3 integrin) and paracrine factors (leukaemia inhibitory factor). The most reliable parameters to assess hormonal influences were oestrogen and progesterone receptor molecules. Immunohistochemical localization could be improved by molecular biological analysis using RT-PCR. In the presence of oestrogen, a significant expression of hormone receptors was also shown by RT-PCR, and withdrawal of oestrogens and addition of gestagen, i.e. medroxyprogesterone acetate, caused receptor downregulation. Addition of the anti-oestrogen ICI 182.780 to cell-culture medium significantly decreased the synthesis of progesterone receptors.  (+info)

Modulation of oestrogenic effects by progesterone antagonists in the rat uterus. (5/6438)

Antiprogestins can modulate oestrogenic effects in various oestrogen-dependent tissues, dependent on species, tissue, dose and duration of treatment. Enhanced oestrogenic responses to mifepristone and onapristone occur in vitro and in vivo. However, the antiprogestins mifepristone, onapristone, and ZK 137 316 can block the ability of oestradiol to increase endometrial growth in non-human primates. Our purposes were firstly, to decide whether mifepristone and onapristone had direct oestrogenic activity in vitro and in the uterus of spayed and immature rats, and secondly, to discover whether antiprogestins exhibit inhibitory effects on oestrogen action in the uterus in spayed, oestrogen-substituted rats. In transactivation assays, mifepristone induced oestrogenic response, whereas onapristone had only marginal effects on reporter gene transcription. In immature rats, onapristone and mifepristone markedly increased uterine weights, and onapristone, but not mifepristone significantly enhanced endometrial luminal epithelial height, a sensitive oestrogen parameter. Conversely, in spayed and adrenalectomized rats, neither onapristone nor mifepristone changed uterine weights or endometrial morphology, indicating that their effects in immature rats were indirect. In spayed, oestrogen-substituted rats, antiprogestins did not block oestradiol-stimulated endometrial growth and luminal and glandular epithelium were stimulated more after antiprogestin plus oestrogen, than after oestradiol alone. All compounds induced compaction of the uterine stroma. In spayed rats, onapristone and some other 13alpha-configured (type 1) antagonists (ZK 135 569, ZK 131 535) reduced oestradiol-stimulated myometrial proliferation and induced an overall uterine weight reduction in animals treated with oestrogen and antiprogestins, in comparison with oestradiol-treated controls. 13beta- configured (type II) antagonists, including mifepristone, lilopristone and ZK 112 993, were not effective. In the uteri of spayed rats, onapristone was also found to enhance the oestradiol-stimulatory effect on expression of the oestrogen-dependent proto-oncogene, c-fos. In conclusion, antiprogestins do not inhibit, but rather enhance, oestrogen-induced uterine glandular and luminal epithelium in spayed rats, contrary to their effects in primates. The rat model is unsuitable to study endometrial antiproliferative effects of antiprogestins in primate uteri.  (+info)

Endometriosis: a dysfunction and disease of the archimetra. (6/6438)

Endometriosis is considered primarily a disease of the endometrial-subendometrial unit or archimetra. The clinical picture of endometriosis characterises this disease as a hyperactivation of genuine archimetrial functions such as proliferation, inflammatory defence and peristalsis. While the aetiology of the disease remains to be elucidated, a key event appears to consist in the local production of extraovarian oestrogen by a pathological expression of the P450 aromatase. The starting event may consist in a hyperactivity of the endometrial inflammatory defence, a hyperactivity of the endometrial oxytocin/oxytocin receptor system or in the pathological expression of the P450 aromatase system itself. Regardless of which of these levels the starting event is localized in, they influence each other on both the level of the archimetra and the endometriotic lesions. Locally elevated oestrogen levels inevitably up-regulate the endometrial oxytocin mRNA and increased levels of oxytocin result in uterine hyperperistalsis, increased transtubal seeding of endometrial tissue fragments and finally subfertility and infertility by impairment of the uterine mechanism of rapid and sustained sperm transport. Locally increased levels of oestrogen lead, on both the level of the endometrial-subendometrial unit and the endometriotic lesion, to processes of hyperproliferation. These processes result, on the level of the uterus, in an infiltrative growth of elements of the archimetra into the neometra and, on the level of the endometriotic lesion, in infiltrative endometriosis. There is circumstantial evidence that trauma might be an important initial event that induces the specific biochemical and cellular responses of the archimetra. This model is able to explain both the pleiomorphic appearance of endometriosis and the, up until now, enigmatic infertility associated with mild and moderate endometriosis.  (+info)

Relationship between metabolism of androstenone and skatole in intact male pigs. (7/6438)

The relationship between the metabolism of androsterone and skatole, the major compounds responsible for boar taint, was investigated in F4 Swedish Yorkshire x European Wild Pig intact males. The metabolism of androstenone and skatole were studied in liver microsomes, and the testicular steroid production was measured in testes microsomes. Including androstenone in the assays of skatole metabolism reduced the formation of 6-hydroxyskatole (pro-MII), and three other skatole metabolites (P<.05). The formation of three additional metabolites was not affected. Liver microsomal incubations of androstenone produced two metabolites, I and II. The rate of the formation of metabolite I and the rate of androstenone metabolism were correlated with the rate of skatole metabolism. Liver metabolism of androstenone was not related to levels of androstenone in fat. Testicular synthesis of 16-androstene steroids was correlated with combined synthesis of estrogens and androgens, plasma levels of androstenone, levels of skatole in fat, and skatole metabolism in the liver (P<.05). Plasma levels of estrone sulfate were correlated with levels of skatole in fat and with androstenone levels in fat and plasma and were negatively correlated with synthesis of skatole metabolite F-1 and pro-MII sulfation. These results indicate that the liver metabolism of androstenone and skatole are related. However, it is likely that the relationship between levels of androstenone and skatole in fat is due more to a link between the testicular synthesis of androstenone rather than to the metabolism of androstenone and skatole in the liver. Sex steroids may affect this relationship because of their biosynthesis along with androstenone and possible inhibition of skatole metabolism in the liver.  (+info)

Estrogen induction of VLDLy assembly in egg-laying hens. (8/6438)

The yolk of a 60-g chicken egg contains 6 g of triacylglycerols transported to the oocyte from the liver of the laying hen in apolipoprotein (apo) B-containing particles. With the onset of egg production, estrogen shifts hepatocytic lipoprotein production from generic VLDL to VLDLy (yolk targeted). These VLDLy are triacylglycerol-rich particles; they are reduced in size by one half, are resistant to lipoprotein lipase and are taken up intact by oocyte receptors. The VLDLy pathway for apoB provides sufficient energy for the caloric requirements of chick development. VLDLy size reduction occurs in spite of surplus liver triacylglycerols and is necessary for VLDL particles to pass through the granulosa basal lamina and reach the receptors located on the oocyte surface. New ultrastructural data show that some proximal tubule cells of bird kidney secrete generic VLDL, perhaps providing energy and other VLDL-associated nutrients to tissues bypassed by VLDLy. Birds are an apoB100-only species, providing a natural in vivo model with which to investigate mechanisms of apoB100 VLDL assembly. Preliminary studies of liver lipoprotein assembly intermediates isolated from the biosynthetic membranes (endoplasmic reticulum) of the laying hen are consistent with the presence of both putative first- and second-step precursor particles of VLDLy. These findings suggest that the two-step mechanism of apoB core lipidation is an ancient development in apoB biology, handed down to mammals from oviparous ancestors.  (+info)

Women between the ages of 25 to 50 who are estrogen deficient are generally prescribed a high dose of estrogen. This can reduce the risk of bone loss, cardiovascular disease, and other hormonal imbalances.. In some cases, long-term treatment may be needed even after your estrogen levels return to normal. This may require lower doses of administered estrogen over time in order to sustain your current level.. Estrogen therapy may also ease the severity of menopausal symptoms and reduce your risk of fractures.. Long-term estrogen therapy is primarily recommended for women who are approaching menopause and have also had a hysterectomy and all transgender. In all other cases, estrogen therapy is only recommended for one to two years. This is because estrogen therapy may increase your risk of cancer.. ...
The majority of breast cancers are also sensitive to estrogen, meaning that estrogen promotes tumor growth.. These cancers are called hormone receptor positive breast cancers.. For people with these cancers, treatments to lower estrogen levels or block estrogen production can be used to help prevent cancer recurrence after surgery, or to slow cancer growth.. According to Breast, alcohol can increase a womans risk of hormone-receptor-positive breast cancer.. Alcohol also enhances the effects of estrogen in driving the growth of breast cancer cells, according to 2016 research at the University of Houston.. Endometriosis is another estrogen-dependent disease.. Reducing estrogen levels and providing non-estrogen treatments have all been considered for the treatment of endometriosis.. The problem is that reducing the levels of estrogen in women can lead to infertility.. A study by the Womens Health Initiative showed that BY REDUCING HORMONES -. ( SPECIFICALLY ESTROGEN )- had significant ...
Estrogen is one of the primary hormones involved in a womans menstrual cycle. When estrogen levels are healthy and balanced, it helps optimize neurotransmitter production and brain function so you feel good all month long. When estrogen levels are off, it causes problems.. Too much estrogen in relation to progesterone can lead to a condition called estrogen dominance. This causes the gentle monthly hormonal rise and fall to turn into a series of intense spikes and dramatic drop-offs that disrupt important brain processes and make you anxious and irritable.. Too little estrogen leads to feeling depressed and confused. The loss of estrogen also hinders critical thinking, short-term memory, and other cognitive functions. These problems can worsen during perimenopause when estrogen levels can fluctuate wildly and during menopause when the hormone drops and stays low.. ...
Progesterone to Balance Estrogen Dominance. Progesterone to balance estrogen dominance is not something new. When estrogen and progesterone are both doing their jobs, they work well together. When the normal ratio or balance of progesterone and estrogen is disrupted either by too much estrogen or too little progesterone, then estrogen dominance may occur.. The term estrogen dominance was first coined by Dr. John R. Lee, author of the book What Your Doctor May Not Tell You about Menopause: The Breakthrough Book on Natural Progesterone. Dr. Lees original concept was that when there is a drop in progesterone production, then menopause is about to occur. Estrogen dominance today is more recognized as a condition where a woman can have normal, deficient, or too much estrogen, but little or no progesterone, creating an imbalance of the two hormones. When there isnt enough progesterone, estrogen levels can become unnaturally high during a womans second part of her menstrual cycle. This can lead ...
Lifestyle News, Washington D C, November 7:- Turns out, when estrogen levels are higher, alcohol is much more rewarding.. The reward center of the brain is much more attuned to the pleasurable effects of alcohol when estrogen levels are elevated, an effect that may underlie the development of addiction in women, according to a study on mice at the University of Illinois at Chicago.. Led by Amy Lasek, researchers found that neurons in a region of the brain called the ventral tegmental area, or VTA (also known as the reward center), fired most rapidly in response to alcohol when their estrogen levels were high. This response is mediated through receptors on dopamine-emitting neurons in the VTA.. Studies indicate that gender differences in psychiatric disorders, including addiction, are influenced by estrogen, one of the primary female sex hormones. Women are more likely to exhibit greater escalation of abuse of alcohol and other drugs, and are more prone to relapse in response to stress and ...

I know that many women are concerned about the effects of estrogen on their breasts. How could they not be? So much has been written and discussed about estrogen, especially since many of the medications for breast cancer have been created to inhibit estrogen production. While understanding estrogens role on the breasts is important, estrogen also effects many organs and functions throughout the entire body, like the heart, bones, skin, vagina, and, as will be discussed here, the brain.. Think how much your brain helps make you the individual woman you are-your wit, your wisdom, your winning ways. Estrogen can play an essential role in protecting your brain from certain illnesses and slowing the aging process if it is taken at the optimal time. As youll discover below, taking estrogen during your estrogen window provides the best benefits for brain health and a major opportunity for an estrogen fix.. The female brains relationship with estrogen begins almost at conception, leading it to ...
The term estrogen actually refers to a group of related hormones, each with a unique profile of activity and purpose. Under normal circumstances, a womans circulating estrogen levels will fluctuate based on her menstrual cycle.. However, this isnt always the case, especially after menopause. These are the three main estrogens female humans produce and their function in the body.. Estrone- E1: This makes up between 10-20% of the bodys circulating estrogens. It is also the primary type of estrogen produced after menopause.. Estradiol- E2: This makes up between 10-30% of the bodys circulating estrogens. It is the most potent product in the ovary and is very secretory. It is also the predominant estrogen produced before menopause and the major form of estrogen in pre-menopausal women.. Estriol- E3: This makes up between 60-80% of circulating estrogen. This dominant estrogen is not only protective against breast cancer, but it can help in the treatment of different menopausal symptoms. Clinical ...
Many female athletes are energy and/or estrogen deficient, but the independent effects on bone health have not been isolated. Energy deficiency was detrimental at the tibia while estrogen deficiency was detrimental at the radius. Nutrition must be considered alongside menstrual recovery when addressing compromised bone health in female athletes. INTRODUCTION: The purpose of this study was to describe volumetric bone mineral density (vBMD), bone geometry, and estimated bone strength in exercising women (n = 60) grouped according to energy status (energy replete (EnR: n = 30) vs. energy deficient (EnD: n = 30)) and estrogen status (estrogen replete (E2R: n = 33) vs. estrogen deficient (E2D: n = 27)), resulting in four distinct groups: EnR + E2R (n = 17), EnR + E2D (n = 13), EnD + E2R (n = 16), EnD + E2D (n = 14). METHODS: Energy status was determined using the ratio of measured to predicted resting energy expenditure (mREE/pREE). Estrogen status was based on self-reported menstrual status ...
Aromatase is an enzyme which converts testosterone into estrogen and primarily found in fat tissue cells. This means that the greater the body fat percentage, the more aromatase, and estrogen a man will have. Thats why, a younger man who has an excess amount of fat, especially around the waist, has a higher chance of experiencing estrogen level spike followed by a decrease in testosterone.. The first rule to avoid high estrogen levels is to maintain a healthy body weight and maintain a high amount of lean muscle. You should especially pay attention to the fat tissue around your midsection. This tissue contains fat cells which are known to release aromatase, leading to increased estrogen in men, thereby changing the entire hormonal balance. There are numerous other factors which can cause high levels of estrogen in men, and men of all ages need to be aware of them, including:. Medications: specific meds are known to increase estrogen, so you should watch out for drugs that contain estrogen, ...
Participants performed this exercise both by itself and while the drugs were being infused. To test the effects of estrogen, the researchers also performed each of these conditions while estrogen was also being slowly infused into participants fat deposits. To measure fat breakdown, the researchers used a technique called microdialysis to look for a marker (glycerol) left behind when stored fat is broken down for eventual production of energy.. Results. The researchers found that estrogens effects differed tremendously depending on the fat- mobilizing interventions themselves and where the fat deposit was located. For example, estrogen blunted fat breakdown in the abdomen if it was infused while a particular fat-mobilization drug called isoproterenol was also being infused, but it didnt have this effect in the buttocks. When a second fat mobilizing drug was given along with the first while participants were at rest, fat breakdown didnt change any further. However, when both drugs were ...
There is still a lot of controversy about estrogens, but everybody agrees they are good for the bones. Estrogens improve bone density as well or better than bisphosphonates, and estrogens decrease the risk of osteoporotic fractures. Estrogens can be given to women who are within 5 years of menopause, and who have a risk of developing osteoporosis. They also help with menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes, vaginal dryness, and sleep disturbances. Estrogens should not be started in women who are more than 10 years past menopause because they might worsen heart disease, but estrogen can protect against heart disease when given right after menopause. Estrogens should be avoided in women who have had blood clots or breast cancer. In women who have a uterus, estrogen can cause cancer of the lining of the uterus, so another female hormone called progesterone should be given to protect the uterus. However, progestins markedly increase the risk of breast cancer, so the safest way is to use an ...
Estrogenic hormones are classically thought to exert their effects by binding to nuclear estrogen receptors and altering target gene transcription, but estrogens can also have nongenomic effects through rapid activation of membrane-initiated kinase cascades. The development of ligands that selectively activate only the nongenomic pathways would provide useful tools to investigate the significance of these pathways. We have prepared large, abiotic, nondegradable poly(amido)amine dendrimer macromolecules that are conjugated to multiple estrogen molecules through chemically robust linkages. Because of their charge and size, these estrogen-dendrimer conjugates (EDCs) remain outside the nucleus. They stimulate ERK, Shc, and Src phosphorylation in MCF-7 breast cancer cells at low concentrations, yet they are very ineffective in stimulating transcription of endogenous estrogen target genes, being approximately 10,000-fold less potent than estradiol in genomic actions. In contrast to estradiol, EDC was ...
The impact of estrogen exposure in preventing or treating cardiovascular disease is controversial. But it is clear that estrogen has important effects on vascular physiology and pathophysiology, with potential therapeutic implications. Therefore, the goal of this review is to summarize, using an integrated approach, current knowledge of the vascular effects of estrogen, both in humans and in experimental animals. Aspects of estrogen synthesis and receptors, as well as general mechanisms of estrogenic action are reviewed with an emphasis on issues particularly relevant to the vascular system. Recent understanding of the impact of estrogen on mitochondrial function suggests that the longer lifespan of women compared with men may depend in part on the ability of estrogen to decrease production of reactive oxygen species in mitochondria. Mechanisms by which estrogen increases endothelial vasodilator function, promotes angiogenesis, and modulates autonomic function are summarized. Key aspects of the ...
Yes! Im sure you can hear my whoop of excitement and vindication. Finally, something negative about estrogen and positive about progesterone in the mainstream media. According to this article by Emily Anthes in the current issue of Scientific American: Mind, womens risk for addiction, and potential for successful withdrawal, are both linked to our menstrual cycle hormones. Estrogen increases womens addictive behaviors while progesterone assists with successful addiction recovery.. Why am I feeling vindicated? Because I recently declared that hot flushes/flashes and night sweats are estrogen addiction (1). That wild but supportable hypothesis is based on the evidence that prolonged or high-dose estrogen exposure is required for hot flushes to occur. But, it is the subsequent abrupt decrease in estrogen levels that triggers vasomotor symptoms. Drug exposure-drug withdrawal symptoms. And do women feel high on estrogen? Perhaps. Clearly the withdrawal is miserable-as one woman said, I continued ...
Over The Counter (OTC) Estrogen Blockers - there are a few OTC estrogen blockers such as EstroBlox, or DIM however the primary element you are looking for are the natural estrogen blocker ingredients in each product to help you establish which one is right for you. First off you want to look for pomegranate powder, tonkat ali, and dijndolyl methane. However if you are looking for a purely organic estrogen blocker then dijndolyl methane would be out as it is a synthesized product not found purely in nature.. Prior to using an estrogen blocker you should review your workout goals. Are you trying to gain mass? if so this product most likely will NOT help you as blocking estrogen does not necessarily increase testosterone. If you are looking to increase testosterone then you need a test booster not an estrogen blocker.. If you feel that you do in fact want to block estrogen then we recommend that you begin with an OTC first. However it is an emergency then speak with your doctor and discuss ...
by Glen Depke, Traditional Naturopath Most think that estrogen dominance is a female issue but this can be a challenge for men too. Lets first look at estrogen dominance. This would be defined as an elevated level of estrogen hormones in the body, regardless of this accumulation showing up in the blood but also the tissue of the body. Based on viewing thousands of hormone saliva test kits through my career, I can share that very often estrogen levels will be fine, or even low, according to blood testing, yet you can take that same person, showing estrogen dominance with a saliva test because of the build up of estrogen hormones in the tissue of the body. Thats an issue! If there is a build up of estrogen in the tissue, this is a risk factor for breast cancer in women and prostrate and/or breast cancer for men. Yes, breast cancer for men too! I have seen many women in the past that have been put on estrogen creams, only to find this leading to a potentially dangerous build up of estrogen in the ...
The transition to the postmenopausal stage is associated with an increased risk for vascular diseases, including myocardial infarction and stroke. This has been linked to a decrease in estrogen production. Estrogens mediate their effects on the brain to a major extent through binding to nuclear receptors, estrogen receptor alpha and beta. It is possible that positive and adverse effects of estrogens are related to interactions between receptor genotypes and hormones. Notably, the estrogen receptor alpha polymorphism c 454-397T/T is associated with increased risk of hemorrhagic stroke, with a synergistic relationship between this genotype and hypertension. In experimental stroke settings estrogens influence recovery of cognitive functions, possibly via induction of neurotrophic factors and specific transcription factors including NGFI-A. This may be related to increased neuroplasticity in the hippocampal formation, a key area for memory processing. Individualized treatment with estrogen receptor ...
Release: Oct. 29, 2001. UI study investigates how estrogen protects against cardiovascular disease. IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Restoring estrogen levels to premenopausal levels in cells taken from postmenopausal rats inhibits processes that cause cardiovascular diseases, according to a University of Iowa study. The researchers hope that their findings will point the way to more specific treatments for these diseases in postmenopausal women.. The findings appear as a highlighted topic in the November issue of the Journal of Applied Physiology. The UI researchers also contributed to a commentary accompanying the article.. Studies have shown that estrogen protects women against cardiovascular system diseases such as atherosclerosis. Estrogen is a hormone that acts in the cell through its receptor protein. After menopause, less estrogen is produced and the amount of the receptor protein is reduced. As a result, cardiovascular disease becomes a major cause of death and illness for postmenopausal ...
Estrogen level after ovulation - What should the ratio be between your estrogen and progesterone levels be after ovulation? Higher estrogen. You estrogen level in general should be much higher than your Progesterone levels. Normal estrogen levels are about 150-300 and normal Progesterone levels are about 10-25.
The link between estrogen and the development and proliferation of breast cancer is well documented. Estrogen stimulates growth and inhibits apoptosis through estrogen receptor-mediated mechanisms in many cell types. Interestingly, there is strong evidence that estrogen induces apoptosis in breast cancer and other cell types. Forty years ago, before the development of tamoxifen, high-dose estrogen was used to induce tumor regression of hormone-dependent breast cancer in post-menopausal women. While the mechanisms by which estrogen induces apoptosis were not completely known, recent evidence from our laboratory and others demonstrates the involvement of the extrinsic (Fas/FasL) and the intrinsic (mitochondria) pathways in this process. We discuss the different apoptotic signaling pathways involved in E2 (17β-estradiol)-induced apoptosis, including the intrinsic and extrinsic apoptosis pathways, the NF-κB (nuclear factor-kappa-B)-mediated survival pathway as well as the PI3K (phosphoinositide 3-kinase)
Estrogen receptor alpha (ER) and progesterone receptor (PR) play critical roles in breast cancer, however the clinical value of PR is controversial and it is unclear how PR modulates estrogen signaling. This study reports that PR reprograms estrogen signaling as a genomic agonist and a phenotypic antagonist. In isolation, estrogen and progestin are genomic agonists as they regulate genes in similar directions but with differing intensities of gene expression and with varying functional annotation of the genes induced. Similarly, in isolation, progestin is a weak phenotypic agonist of estrogen action, however, in the presence of both hormones, progestin antagonizes estrogen-regulated processes and it behaves as a phenotypic antagonist of estrogen. This principle of genomic agonism and phenotypic antagonism rationalizes the good prognosis associated with PR-positivity of ER+ tumors. Importantly, when both the hormones are present, progestin dominates estrogen action such that the levels of ...
Estrogens have been implicated to play certain but yet undefined roles in the normal and neoplastic growth of prostate gland. Studies of perinatal exposure in rodents demonstrate that effects of perinatal estrogenization are permanent and carcinogenic in prostate gland. In the Noble (Nb) rat model, prostatic dysplasia and neoplastic lesions can be induced by a chronic treatment with both testosterone and estrogen at adulthood. However, by this conventional protocol, neoplastic lesions are mostly confined to the lateral (LP) and ventral (VP) prostates, while gross prostatic tumors are rarely induced. Based on these two experimental models, we developed a modified treatment protocol for the enhancement of prostate cancer induction in Nb rat model by combining neonatal estrogen exposure of male offspring followed by the hormonal treatment at adulthood (NeoE + T-E2). Using this modified protocol, we were able to induce more extensive development of neoplastic lesions in all three prostatic lobes and ...
Ive not read anything regarding a correlation between estrogen levels during IVF and PE, but I have read that high estrogen levels after ovarian stimming can lead to a failed transfer of fresh embryos (they will not implant or will miscarry early on). This is why some REs test estrogen levels after egg retrieval and will freeze all embryos if levels are too high, rather than risk wasting an otherwise good embryo on a fresh transfer that could fail due to elevated estrogen levels. If you have any links to the publications youre referring to, Id be interested in seeing them ...
Estrogens have had a bad rap for a long time but they are major signaling molecules in the body that have many beneficial and complex activities. There are actually over 60 estrogenic-acting estrogens in the human body, though 3 are the most famous Charlies Angel estrogens: Estradiol (the strongest purest estrogen that delivers signals to most estrogen receptors), Estriol (a gentler estrogen that sends anti-cancer signals) and, Estrone (known as the bad sister estrogens like the bad sisters in Cinderella, that is more predominantly produced in menopause and is often regarded as a pro-carcinogenic (cancer-causing) estrogen. Are all estrone type estrogens nasty? Maria wrote and asked [...] ...
We have previously demonstrated that endoxifen is the most important tamoxifen metabolite responsible for eliciting the anti-estrogenic effects of this drug in breast cancer cells expressing estrogen receptor-alpha (ERα). However, the relevance of ERβ in mediating endoxifen action has yet to be explored. Here, we characterize the molecular actions of endoxifen in breast cancer cells expressing ERβ and examine its effectiveness as an anti-estrogenic agent in these cell lines. MCF7, Hs578T and U2OS cells were stably transfected with full-length ERβ. ERβ protein stability, dimer formation with ERα and expression of known ER target genes were characterized following endoxifen exposure. The ability of various endoxifen concentrations to block estrogen-induced proliferation of MCF7 parental and ERβ-expressing cells was determined. The global gene expression profiles of these two cell lines was monitored following estrogen and endoxifen exposure and biological pathway analysis of these data sets was

TY - JOUR. T1 - Induction of antioxidative and antiapoptotic thioredoxin supports neuroprotective hypothesis of estrogen. AU - Chiueh, Chuang C.. AU - Lee, Sang. AU - Andoh, Tsugunobu. AU - Murphy, Dennis L.. PY - 2003/6/1. Y1 - 2003/6/1. N2 - The original neuroprotective hypothesis of estrogen was based on the gender difference in brain response to the ischemia-reperfusion injury. Additional clinical reports also suggest that estrogen may improve cognition in patients with Alzheimer disease. 17β-Estradiol is the most potent endogenous ligand of estrogen, which protects against neurodegeneration in both cell and animal models. Estrogen-mediated neuroprotection is probably mediated by both receptor-dependent and -independent mechanisms. Binding of estrogen such as 17β-estradiol to estrogen receptors (ERs) activates the homodimers of ER-DNA and its binding to estrogen response elements in the promoter region of genes such as neuronal nitric oxide synthase (NOS1) for regulating gene expression in ...
Natalie Angier article explains recent discovery of second estrogen receptor, protein through which potent hormone can convey its messages to bodys cells; estrogen receptor beta, considered only last year just a backup to true receptor, has now been found in organs with little or no evidence of alpha receptor, and that were never considered to be under estrogens dominance; organs include lungs, kidneys, intestines, bladder and colon; diagram; beta receptor also exists in certain cells of bone and blood vessels where original receptor is scarce; discovery could help resolve longstanding puzzles about estrogens effects on female bodies, and influence breast cancer and heart treatment; new work also alters view of estrogen as female hormone, since receptor was found while screening rodent prostate tissue in search of androgen receptor; Dr Jan-Ake Gustafson comments on work with colleagues at Karolinska Institute in Sweden (M)
Evidence continues to accumulate that so-called nuclear receptors need not be nuclear to cause signaling events. Haynes et al. and Razandi et al. report rapid effects of estrogen apparently mediated by the traditional receptor that are more characteristic of signals initiated by transmembrane receptors. Within minutes of treating endothelial cells with estrogen, Haynes et al. found the estrogen receptor in complexes with the p85 regulatory subunit of phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase and the tryrosine kinase Src. Estrogen caused phosphorylation of Src on a site consistent with activation of the kinase, and a pharmacological inhibitor of Src blocked estrogen-induced activation of the kinase Akt and synthesis of nitric oxide. Phosphorylation of Akt in response to estrogen was absent in cells lacking Src and in the related kinases Fyn and Yes. Razandi et al. also report activation of Src in response to estrogen in endothelial cells and breast cancer cells. However, they propose that Src acts to ...
The broad goal of this proposal is to determine the effect of aging on areas of the brain whose function is impacted by gonadal steroids in women. The overarching hypothesis is that aging differentially alters the effects of estrogen on the brain. Our preliminary data indicate that aging alters the effect of estrogen on brain regions involved in cognition and thus, the current proposal will focus on the impact of aging on functional changes induced by estrogen in cortical and subcortical areas associated with verbal working memory and declarative/episodic memory. As our model, we will use women in whom the absence of gonadal function makes it possible to control the duration and amount of estrogen exposure, specifically postmenopausal women who are younger (45-55) or older (65-80). We will investigate the effects of both short-term (48 hr) and prolonged (28-30 days) estrogen exposure to determine whether the changes in brain regions involved in cognition that were seen with short-term estrogen ...
Estrogen has a wide range of effects on the body and brain. It exerts influence on the central nervous system through complex mechanisms of physiology and psychology. It can affect the generation and efficiency of neurotransmitters in the amygdala, hippocampus and prefrontal lobes, which are important brain areas related to emotion and cognition. It also plays a role in changing emotional behavior by acting on the hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis. The genetic transcription of estrogen receptors can modulate emotional behavior, and estrogen can influence emotional processing via neuropsychological factors. It enhances the coding of emotion and recognition accuracy for facial expressions. Estrogen can also affect emotional arousal and change the intensity of emotional experiences ...
According to a 2013 study, topical estrogen cream can play an important role in preventing frequent urinary tract infections after menopause. Estrogen stimulates the production of the bodys natural defense system and enhances the ability of the urinary tract cells to fight the infection-causing bacteria. According to the 2013 study, researchers treated post menopausal women having frequent UTIs with estrogen for a period of 14 days. They then studied their urine and found that the estrogen actually glued and healed the gaps in between the cells lining the bladder lumen. This action made it harder for the bacterial cells to bridge through the gap to reach the underlying cells and harm them causing infection. Oral estrogen pills are associated with increased cancer risk, but topical estrogen is much safer and today it is available in the form of gels, creams and suppositories. Vaginal estrogen also has following benefits:. ...
p,Estrogens are known to exert neuroprotective and immuneomodulatory effects after stroke. However, at present, little is known about the role of estrogens and its receptors in postischemic inflammation after menopause. Here, we provide important in vivo evidence of a distinct shift in microglial phenotypes in the model of postmenopause brain. Using a model-system for live imaging of microglial activation in the context of chronic estrogen- and ERα-deficiency associated with aging, we observed a marked deregulation of the TLR2 signals and/or microglial activation in ovariectomized and/or ERα knockout mice. Further analysis revealed a 5.7-fold increase in IL-6, a 4.7-fold increase in phospho-Stat3 levels suggesting an overactivation of JAK/STAT3 pathway and significantly larger infarction in ERα knockouts chronically deprived of estrogen. Taken together, our results suggest that in the experimental model of menopause and/or aging, ERα mediates innate immune responses and/or microglial ...
Introduction: The quality of life of every individual is influenced by many different factors. For women in menopause, estrogen deficiency is undoubtedly one of these factors. Estrogen deficit leads to a series of symptoms, which may affect their quality of life to some extent. In the clinical practice, it is important to have a tool to assess the quality of life that is practical and is able not only to assess the quality of life. Aim: The aim of the research was to determine whether and to what extent the symptoms of estrogen deficiency occur in women during menopause and how they affect their quality of life. Method: The survey ran from July to October 2016 in a medical facility in Zlín. The research involved 284 women aged 45-60 years who suffered from the symptoms of estrogen deficiency. The incidence and severity of symptoms were assessed using the printed form of the Czech version of the Menopause Rating Scale questionnaire. Results: The respondents reported mostly mild or no problems. ...

Now a University of Colorado Cancer Center study published in the journal Oncogene shows that while estrogen doesnt directly affect triple-negative breast cancer cells, it can affect surrounding brain cells in ways that promote cancer cell migration and invasiveness. Importantly, the study also suggests ways to stop the activity of estrogen in the brain that fertilizes triple-negative breast cancer metastasis.. The cancer cells arent responsive to estrogen, but estrogen influences the microenvironment. We found that astrocytes - one of the main components of the microenvironment in the brain - are estrogen-responsive. When they are stimulated with estrogen, they produce chemokines, growth factors, and other things that promote brain metastasis, says Diana Cittelly, PhD, investigator at CU Cancer Center and assistant professor in the CU School of Medicine Department of Pathology.. Technically, Cittelly and colleagues including postdoctoral researcher, Maria Contreras-Zarate, PhD, found that ...
Estrogen is mainly a hormone that is present only in female body, but its only a misconception because this hormone is found in both females as well as in males. In female, this hormone is found in very high amount as compared to men. In mens body, estrogen plays a very important role as it makes sure that the body works properly. There are 3 types of estrogen that are found in the body such as estriol, estradiol and estrone. In men, estradiol is found that helps them to keep their brain and their joints healthy. It also helps the male reproductive cell sperm to produce as well as develop properly.. Estrogen is vital for the body but only in required amounts. Too much estrogen in a body can lead to hormonal imbalance and also affect the level of testosterone in body. High amount of estrogen level can also lead to many health issues such as cardiovascular problems, obesity, prostate problems; risk of stroke also increases and much more. Thats why it is always advised to decrease and maintain ...
There has been a lot of discussion within the scientific community recently about estrogen dominance, and with good reason. Estrogen dominance is a condition that includes normal or high amounts of estrogen, with little or no progesterone to balance its effects in the body. Numerous articles have been written on the possible disadvantages of too much estrogen in the body, the causes of the overload, and adjustments patients can make to their lifestyle to help the situation.. Learn to read the signs. Estrogen levels can rise and fall in an uneven manner during the perimenoapausal period. For some women, estrogen levels can increase noticeably during perimenopause, with many women showing estrogen dominance symptoms for 10-15 years prior to its onset.1 If you learn to read the potential signs, your healthcare practitioner can help create a plan that is best suited for you.. ...

We examined the modulation by estrogen of the coupling of various receptor systems to inwardly rectifying and small conductance, Ca2+-activated K+ (SK) channels. We used intracellular sharp-electrode and whole-cell recordings in hypothalamic slices from ovariectomized female guinea pigs. Estrogen rapidly uncouples μ-opioid receptors from G protein-gated inwardly rectifying K+ (GIRK) channels in β-endorphin neurons, manifest by a reduction in the potency of μ-opioid receptor agonists to hyperpolarize these cells. This effect is blocked by inhibitors of protein ...
We hear so much about hormones during pregnancy - when I was suddenly hot natured instead of my usual cold self, my best friend said, its hormones. When I ate an entire chocolate cake (true story), my mom said, its your hormones. What the heck? What are these mysterious hormones and what else are they doing to my body during pregnancy? Heres an overview of 3 big ones: Estrogen, Testosterone, and Progesterone.. Estrogen. Lets talk about estrogen. Not just what you learned in high school biology, but how it affects your day-to-day life after youve had a baby.. Right after you give birth, the levels of estrogen and progesterone in your body dramatically drop. This is good news if youre breastfeeding, as that drop allows a hormone called prolactin to be released, and it maintains your milk production. If you continue to breastfeed, your levels of prolactin will stay elevated and prevent you from ovulating. No ovulation means: low estrogen.. So, what does estrogen actually do for us? So ...
Estrogen has important effects on cardiovascular function including regulation of vascular function, blood pressure, endothelial relaxation, the development of hypertrophy and cardioprotection. However, the mechanisms by which estrogen mediates these effects are still poorly understood. As detailed in this review, estrogen can regulate transcription by binding to two nuclear receptors, ERα and ERβ, which differentially regulate gene transcription. ERα and ERβ regulation of gene transcription is further modulated by tissue specific co-activators and co-repressors. Estrogen can bind to ERα and ERβ localized at the plasma membrane as well as GPER to initiate membrane delimited signaling, which enhances kinase signaling pathways that can have acute and long term effects. The kinase signaling pathways can also mediate transcriptional changes, and can synergize with the estrogen receptor to regulate cell function. This review will summarize the beneficial effects of estrogen in protecting the ...

Y1 - 2006/1/1. N2 - The aging process is known to coincide with a decline in circulating sex hormone levels in both men and women. Due to an increase in the average lifespan, a growing number of post-menopausal women are now receiving hormone therapy for extended periods of time. Recent findings of the Womens Health Initiative, however, have called into question the benefits of long-term hormone therapy for treating symptoms of menopause. The results of this study are still being evaluated, but it is clear that a better understanding of the molecular effects of estradiol is needed in order to develop new estrogenic compounds that activate specific mechanisms but lack adverse side effects. Traditionally, the effects of estradiol treatment have been ascribed to changes in gene expression, namely ...
This list of 5 foods that contain estrogen can be used as a guide to help you get started on a more balanced eating regimen. Consuming foods containing natural estrogen is said to help regulate a womans body as she passes through menopause.. Plant estrogen, also called phyto-estrogen, is said to mimic human estrogen when consumed. Replacing estrogen naturally by consuming estrogen-rich foods is thought to be a safe way to help prevent breast cancer, osteoporosis, heart disease and high blood pressure. Hot flashes, night sweats, headaches and trouble sleeping are some other complications related to the lack of estrogen during menopause that can also be relieved by consuming phyto-estrogens.. ...
Female Hormone Estrogen is an important sex hormone of females. Excess low and high level of estrogen is both bad for health. Women should concern about it.
New research from University of London has revealed that the female sex hormone estrogen may be able to keep the bodys immune systems in check, thus helping to protect women from cardiovascular disease.. The study states that estrogen works on white blood cells so that they do not stick to the insides of blood vessels - a process known to cause dangerous blockages.. The findings of this study might successfully explain why men seem to be more affected by cardiovascular disease than women, and why women are at a higher risk post-menopause.. The research consisted of a comparison between blood samples from pre-menopausal women and men. The blood cells from pre-menopausal women were found to have high levels of annexin-A1 on the surface of the white blood cells. The estrogen moves the annexin-A1 from storage within the white blood cells to the surface. This is what prevents sticking of the cells to the walls of blood vessels, which causes vascular damage..

HIGH ESTRADIOL in pre-menopausal women is usually caused by excessive production of androgens (testosterone and DHEA) by the ovaries and adrenal glands, which are converted to estrogens by the aromatase enzyme found in adipose (fat) tissue, or by estrogen replacement therapy (ERT). When estrogen levels are high in post-menopausal women, this is usually due to insufficient progesterone (either from waning ovarian production at menopause or from estrogen supplementation) necessary to counterbalance the cellular growth-promoting actions of the estrogens. Excess estrogen levels lead to the symptoms of estrogen dominance, including mood swings, irritability, anxiety, water retention, fibrocystic breasts, weight gain in the hips, bleeding changes (due to overgrowth of the uterine lining and uterine fibroids) and thyroid deficiency. Estradiol, even at normal ranges (1.5 Ð 3 pg/ml), can cause estrogen excess if not balanced by adequate progesterone. Diet, exercise, nutritional supplements, ...
Our findings confirm those from previous studies that there are no associations of serum estrogen with prostate cancer risk in untreated men. In addition, finasteride results in a modest increase in serum estrogen levels, which are not related to prostate cancer risk. Whether finasteride is less eff …
Menopause is associated with health concerns including vasomotor symptoms, vulvar/vaginal atrophy (VVA), and osteoporosis. Estrogen therapy or combined estrogen-progestin therapy (EPT) are primary treatment options for menopausal symptom relief and osteoporosis prevention. Because EPT has been associated with some safety/tolerability concerns relating to undesirable effects of estrogen and progestin, alternative options are needed. The tissue selective estrogen complex (TSEC) is a novel class of agents pairing a selective estrogen receptor modulator (SERM) with 1 or more estrogens. The TSEC combines the established efficacy of estrogens on menopausal symptoms and bone with the protective effects of a SERM on the reproductive tract. The pairing of bazedoxifene (BZA) with conjugated estrogens (CE) has been evaluated in a series of phase 3 clinical trials. BZA 20 mg/CE 0.45 mg and BZA 20 mg/CE 0.625 mg have shown efficacy in reducing the frequency and severity of hot flushes, relieving VVA symptoms, and
Christie Aschwanden;2001/9/nw34 Key Words: estrogen progesterone hormone replacement therapy vascular AGE. Abstract: Hormone replacement therapys power to cool hot flashes and bolster bone has earned it a reputation as a youth-sustaining pill for postmenopausal women. Scientists have long reasoned that it could help fight heart disease too, in part because premenopausal women have a much lower incidence of the condition than men do; during menopause, estrogen concentrations plummet and the risk for women begins to catch up to that for men. However, a long-term study on a large group released this year--the Heart and Estrogen Replacement Study (HERS)--found that hormone replacement therapy didnt reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, casting doubt on its benefits in this realm of health care. Now, Mullick and colleagues add fuel to the debate by demonstrating that estrogen protects the vascular system even after treatment stops--at ...
Although endurance exercise and supplemental estrogen have both been shown to improve serum lipid cardiac risk profiles in postmenopausal women, data regarding a possible synergistic influence are scarce and inconsistent. The purpose of this study was to determine whether such a synergistic influence could be demonstrated. Serum concentrations of total cholesterol (TC), HDL-cholesterol (HDL-C), HDL2-C, HDL3-C, LDL-C, and triglycerides (TG) were obtained from postmenopausal women (N = 45) in each of 4 groups: currently exercising and taking estrogen replacement, exercising and not taking estrogen, sedentary and taking estrogen, and sedentary and not taking estrogen. HDL-C was on average 21% higher (p , .05) and the HDL-C:LDL-C ratio on average 45% higher (p , .05) in the exercise-plus-estrogen group than in any of the other 3 groups. It was concluded that the combination of endurance exercise and estrogen replacement might be associated with better lipid coronary risk profiles in postmenopausal ...
Commercial swine waste lagoons are regarded as a major reservoir of natural estrogens, which have the potential to produce adverse physiological effects on exposed aquatic organisms and wildlife. However, there remains limited understanding of the complex mechanisms of physical, chemical, and biological processes that govern the fate and transport of natural estrogens within an anaerobic swine lagoon. To improve lagoon management and ultimately help control the offsite transport of these compounds from swine operations, a probabilistic Bayesian network model was developed to assess natural estrogen fate and budget and then compared against data collected from a commercial swine field site. In general, the model was able to describe the estrogen fate and budget in both the slurry and sludge stores within the swine lagoon. Sensitivity analysis within the model, demonstrated that the estrogen input loading from the associated barn facility was the most important factor in controlling estrogen

Y1 - 1998/4. N2 - The estrogen receptor (ER) is a ligand-dependent transcription factor that regulates the expression of estrogen-responsive genes. ER-mediated transcriptional changes are brought about by interaction of the ER with the estrogen response element (ERE). In this study, we examined the interaction of the Xenopus laevis ER DNA binding domain (DBD) and the intact ER with the X. laevis vitellogenin A2 ERE and the human pS2 ERE. Using gel mobility shift, DNase I footprinting, and methylation interference assays, we demonstrated that the DBD bound only as a dimer to the A2 ERE. However, the DBD bound as a monomer to the consensus pS2 ERE half site at lower DBD concentrations and then as a homodimer to the consensus and imperfect pS2 ERE half site at higher DBD concentrations.

Source: HRT is commonly offered to postmenopausal women. Women who have not had a hysterectomy (surgical removal of the uterus) are offered combined progesterone and estrogen replacement. Women who have had a hysterectomy are considered for estrogen replacement alone. It is understood that women who receive combined HRT are at increased risk for breast cancer compared to women who receive estrogen alone. However, it is unclear if the dose of estrogen in this second group impacts disease risk. This is important because many providers want to prescribe enough estrogen to alleviate menopausal symptoms (vaginal dryness, hot flashes, etc.) while keeping doses low enough to avoid other health complications.. This study evaluated women within the Womens Health Initiative Observational Study, a project that followed postmenopausal women over time regarding their health issues. Over ...

Despite the fact that estrogen is essential for both quality and quantity of life, aromatase inhibitors (AIs) are regularly prescribed to most post-menopausal women with estrogen-sensitive breast cancer - even if they have low estrogen levels.
Estrogen is not all bad for men, but it needs to be in balance. In one study investigating estrogen in heart failure, the men with the lowest and highest amount of estrogen had the greatest problems [Source: Jankowska]. Another study found that testosterone supplementation in elderly increased spatial memory and verbal memory. This testosterone supplementation also naturally increased estrogen levels due to the enzyme aromatase. If aromatase was blocked, estrogen would not increase and spatial memory improved, but not verbal memory [Source: Cherrier]. This helps establish the fact that men need some estrogen, but not too much.. How do we prevent too much estrogen? Obesity is perhaps the greatest hindrance to maintaining a healthy hormone balance. Obesity decreases the production of testosterone [Source: Tan]. Extra fat cells will also increase levels of estrogen [Source: Rao]. By getting trim and building muscle through exercise, men get extra insurance against chronic disease through better ...

Background: Atherosclerosis develops rapidly in postmenopausal women, and plaque erosion induces acute coronary syndromes (ACS) in perimenopausal women (PMW). However, the causal relationship between low estrogen levels and the mechanism of plaque erosion in PMW is not fully resolved. We examined whether PWM have historical T cell dysfunction related to adhesion molecules, and whether they experience accelerated plaque erosion as a result.. Methods and Results: Fresh CD4 T cells were isolated from 62 PMW (mean age 54.0±5.0 years) and 69 women with regular menstruation cycles (NC, mean age 33.0±8.0 years). Estrogen levels were lower in PMW than in NC (P,0.0001). Measurements of DAPI-binding nuclear protein fragmentations showed that CD4 T cells from PMW induced significant human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVEC) apoptosis compared to CD4 T cells from NC (P,0.002). Furthermore, CD4 T cells from PMW had high T cell activation marker CD69 (P,0.001) and expressed strong p-selectin ...
Fulvestrant is a synthetic estrogen receptor antagonist. Unlike tamoxifen (which has partial agonist effects) and the aromatase inhibitors (which reduce the estrogen available to tumor cells), fulvestrant binds competitively to estrogen receptors in breast cancer cells, resulting in estrogen receptor deformation and decreased estrogen binding. In vitro studies indicate that fulvestrant reversibly inhibits the growth of tamoxifen-resistant, estrogen-sensitive, human breast cancer cell lines. Check for active clinical trials or closed clinical trials using this agent.
Estrogen receptor (ER) has been shown to be involved in several cellular and metabolic pathways. In this study, we reviewed the literature for molecular and physiological roles of estrogen receptor in normal and pathological conditions. We discussed the expression of estrogen receptor in several tissues as well as the potential of using ERb agonists in treating proliferative hematological disorders. The function of estrogen is varied and may look contradicted. Estrogen has multiple roles under physiological conditions including signaling roles in cell growth, reproduction, development and differentiation. Estrogens exert their effects through two distinct estrogen receptors, ER-α and β to which E2 binds strongly. The expression of ERs depends mainly on the type of ER. Although estrogen mainly acts in reproductive system, its receptors are selectively expressed in different tissues. ER-β is highly expressed in the ovary, central nervous system, cardiovascular system, lung, male reproductive
The ligand binding domain of estrogen receptor and estrogen receptor-related receptors. The ligand binding domain of estrogen receptor (ER) and estrogen receptor-related receptors (ERRs): Estrogen receptors are a group of receptors which are activated by the hormone estrogen. Estrogen regulates many physiological processes including reproduction, bone integrity, cardiovascular health, and behavior. The main mechanism of action of the estrogen receptor is as a transcription factor by binding to the estrogen response element of target genes upon activation by estrogen and then recruiting coactivator proteins which are responsible for the transcription of target genes. Additionally some ERs may associate with other membrane proteins and can be rapidly activated by exposure of cells to estrogen. ERRs are closely related to the estrogen receptor (ER) family. But, it lacks the ability to bind estrogen. ERRs can interfere with the classic ER-mediated estrogen signaling pathway, positively or ...

However, evidence soon emerged that these theoretical benefits are outweighed by side effects from receiving high and variable levels of hormone exposure. A post-market study was the basis for a 2005 label change explaining that overall exposure to estrogen from the Ortho-Evra patch was 55 to 60% higher from the patch than a standard, 35 microgram (mcg) estrogen oral contraceptive. Comparison studies have also shown that the amount of absorbed estrogen varied 1.2 to 3.5 times as much for women who used the patch as for women who used oral contraceptives. Dr. Sidney Wolfe, director of the Health Research Group at Public Citizen, says:. Had Ortho-Evra been designed as a pill, it is unlikely to have been approved because of its increased estrogen content.. In 1988, the FDA requested the withdrawal of all oral contraceptives with estrogen levels greater than 50 mcg because of the risk of blood clots and lack of additional contraceptive efficacy. The estrogen levels of the Ortho-Evra patch are ...

No effects of low concentrations were found. To study the effects of hippocampus-derived estradiol, we inhibited hippocampal estrogen synthesis by treatment of hippocampal cell cultures with letrozole, an aromatase inhibitor. Alternatively, we used siRNA against Steroidogenic acute regulatory protein (StAR). Spines, synapses, and synaptic proteins were significantly downregulated in response to letrozole and in siRNA-StAR transfected cells. ...
This randomized phase III trial studies docetaxel, carboplatin, trastuzumab, and pertuzumab with estrogen deprivation to see how they work compared to docetaxel, carboplatin, trastuzumab, and pertuzumab without estrogen deprivation in treating patients with hormone receptor-positive, human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2)-positive breast cancer that is operable or has spread from where it started to nearby tissue or lymph nodes (locally advanced). Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as docetaxel, carboplatin, trastuzumab, and pertuzumab, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Giving more than one drug (combination chemotherapy) may kill more tumor cells. Estrogen can cause the growth of breast cancer cells. Hormone therapy using goserelin acetate and aromatase inhibition therapy may fight breast cancer by blocking the use of estrogen by the tumor cells. Radiation therapy uses ...

Background: Physical activity is linked to breast cancer risk reduction in women, yet the mechanism remains largely unknown. Possible causes for this association have been hypothesized to include change in endogenous estrogen production, estrogen metabolism, circulating concentrations of peptide hormones and growth factors, obesity, central adiposity, and immune function. Recent investigations in estrogen metabolism in women have brought to light a new possibility for the association between physical activity and breast cancer risk to be related to 2-hydroxyestrone metabolism increases with exercise, relative to 16α-hydroxyestrone. This metabolite pathway has been studied as a mechanism for postmenopausal breast cancer risk, but there are few studies concerning eumenorrheic, premenopausal women. The purpose of this systematic review is to evaluate the most current research on this topic. Methods: An exhaustive search of available medical literature concerning estrogen metabolism, breast cancer risk,
characterized. We identified conserved estrogen response elements within the 5 flanking region of the PRG4 gene of human and baboon, and found that treatment of baboon TMJ disc cells with estrogen attenuated PRG4 promoter activity and expression of PRG4 mRNA in vitro. This discovery of negative regulation of PRG4 by estrogen is the basis for the hypothesis that a causative event in the development of TMD is estrogen-mediated down regulation of PRG4 transcription. Insufficient quantity of PRG4 in the TMJ is expected to lead to increased friction and over time, degradation of TMJ components affecting the articulation of the mandibular condyle with the glenoid fossa of the temporal bone and disc placement, which largely describes the human TMD phenotype. In this study we propose three specific aims; 1) to determine the extent that estrogen decreases PRG4 expression in female and male baboon TMJ cells and TMJ organotypic cultures. Immunoblots and qPCR will be used to quantify estrogen effects on ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Zinc finger protein 131 inhibits estrogen signaling by suppressing estrogen receptor α homo-dimerization. AU - Oh, Yohan. AU - Chung, Kwang Chul. PY - 2013/1/4. Y1 - 2013/1/4. N2 - Steroid hormone estrogen elicits various physiological functions, many of which are mediated through two structurally and functionally distinct estrogen receptors, ERα and ERβ. The functional role of zinc finger protein 131 (ZNF131) is poorly understood, but it is assumed to possess transcriptional regulation activity due to the presence of a DNA binding motif. A few recent reports, including ours, revealed that ZNF131 acts as a negative regulator of ERα and that SUMO modification potentiates the negative effect of ZNF131 on estrogen signaling. However, its molecular mechanism for ERα inhibition has not been elucidated in detail. Here, we demonstrate that ZNF131 directly interacts with ERα, which consequently inhibits ERα-mediated trans-activation by suppressing its homo-dimerization. Moreover, ...
Also known as gynecomastia, estrogen is linked to a number of cancers and health risks. Women who are approaching menopause may also find that the periods become irregular before stopping altogether but this is considered normal, you may have an underlying medical condition causing your levels to be thrown off, girls who havent reached puberty and women approaching menopause are most likely to experience low estrogen. And deliver a message or instruction, the lack of support can cause vaginal bleeding, hormone therapy is also used to help transgender people who wish to transition between genders. So there isnt always an underlying concern, if there is a concern about a hormonal imbalance, the long-term safety and effects of testosterone therapy to increase libido in women isnt well understood. The effects of imbalanced estrogen levels can include the followinghigh levels of estrogen in men can lead to infertility, learn how the decline in estrogen at menopause contributes to weight gain.. ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Rapid actions of estrogens in GH3/B6 pituitary tumor cells via a plasma membrane version of estrogen receptor-α. AU - Watson, Cheryl S.. AU - Norfleet, Andrea M.. AU - Pappas, Todd C.. AU - Gametchu, Bahiru. PY - 1999/1/1. Y1 - 1999/1/1. N2 - The focus of our work on rapid actions of estrogens has been on the immuno-identification of a membrane version of the estrogen receptor-α (mERα) and the correlation of the presence of this receptor to the rapid secretion of prolactin in pituitary tumor cells. We demonstrated the mERα by both fluorescence and immuno-enzyme-cytochemistry and with both conventional and confocal microscopy in the cell line GH3/B6 and its sublines. Its presence on cells (including recently subcloned ones) is very heterogenous, unlike the nuclear ERα, which is present in every cell. An impeded ligand (estradiol covalently linked to BSA) binds to mERα and elicits the same response. A total of eight antibodies to ERα recognize mERα, making it likely that ...
Just as in women, men suffer the effects of estrogen dominance. Many researchers including John R. Lee, M.D (Leading pioneer in natural progesterone therapy), Dr. Jesse Hanley and Dr. Peter Eckhart are coming to the conclusion that the over abundance of estrogen and estrogen like substances (xenoestrogens or foreign estrogens) are responsible for a vast number of todays health problems. This over abundance of estrogen is referred to as estrogen dominance which is an increasingly serious problem for both women and men. Dr. Lee believes that it is excessive exposure to estrogen that is the primary cause of prostate enlargement and prostate cancer. Xenoestrogens in the environment are among the culprits. Sources of xenoestrogens includes commercially raised beef, chicken and pork, birth control pills, spermacide, detergent, plastics, plastic drinking bottles, pesticides, herbicides, personal care products, canned foods and lacquers. Men produce estrogen (Estradiol) but in much lower amount than ...
These three chemicals make up human estrogen. The estrogen that has the most volume in the body is estriol (60-80% of circulating estrogens), followed by estradiol and estrone (10-20% each). Estriol is thought to be the weakest acting hormone, but provides a natural hormonal balance in the body, whereas estradiol and estrone are thought be the stronger estrogens. The female body produces large amounts of estriol during pregnancy and has protective properties against such things as estrogen related cancers. Estradiol is the estrogen that can relieve vaso-motor symptoms the best. Estrone is the primary estrogen found in post-menopausal women. It stores it self in the body fat and has more know cancer properties. ...

Latest word on estrogen. Submitted by: Marc Gittelman. Submitted on: July 17 2007. Q: I am going through menopause and my hot flashes and vaginal dryness are driving me and my husband crazy. I read a few years ago that hormones are dangerous. Is there any new information?. A: Any woman going through menopause can have very serious and detrimental changes to her sexuality. Until several years ago, many women were placed on estrogen with an excellent chance to diminish hot flashes and regain physical sexual arousal. Then came a study known as the Womens Health Initiative, indicating that taking estrogen increases the risk for heart disease. The newest data is reassuring. High-tech heart scans were used to follow up on these studies. Research indicated that those taking estrogen were 30 percent to 40 percent less likely to have calcium blockages that can clod coronary arteries. The timing of when the hormones are started is crucial. Women who started their estrogen during menopause benefited with ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Estrogens and postmenopausal osteoporosis. AU - Heaney, R. P.. PY - 1976. Y1 - 1976. N2 - I have outlined a comprehensive model of estrogen action on bone that explains the known physiologic effects of estrogen and that is consistent with the limited data of the available clinical studies. I cannot stress too highly that the model, however elegant and satisfying, is not the same as real postmenopausal women. The predictions of the model can be tested only in that world. Special problems make this testing unusually difficult, but the disease is too important in a population with the current and changing age distribution in the United States to excuse additional delay in undertaking the necessary studies. If the model is valid, it suggests that estrogen has a role in treatment of osteoporosis, but only if that treatment is confined strictly to palliation. The model also suggests that estrogen may play a much more important role in prevention. But to whom should such prevention be ...
Background: High rates of postpartum relapse occur in women with histories of bipolar or schizoaffective disorder. These relapses may be triggered by the postdelivery fall in circulating estrogen through alteration of central neurotransmitter (especially dopaminergic) systems. This study tested the hypothesis that estrogen administration after childbirth would prevent postpartum relapse and would alter dopamine receptor sensitivity. Method: Twenty-nine pregnant women with a Research Diagnostic Criteria diagnosis of hypomania (bipolar II), mania (bipolar I), or schizoaffective disorder participated in an open clinical trial. Three transdermal dose regimens of estrogen (17beta-estradiol) were tested. Starting doses were 200 (N = 13), 400 (N = 3), and 800 (N = 13) micrograms/day, beginning within 48 hours after delivery and reduced by one half every 4 days for a total of 12 days. On the fourth day after starting estradiol therapy (before relapse occurred), subjects participated in a neuroendocrine ...
Elevated ERK1/ERK2/estrogen receptor cross-talk enhances estrogen-mediated signaling during long-term estrogen deprivation The knowledge that steroids play a pivotal role in the development of breast cancer has been exploited clinically by the development of endocrine treatments. These have sought to perturb the steroid hormone environment of the tumour cells, predominately by withdrawal or antagonism of oestrogen. Unfortunately, the beneficial actions of existing endocrine treatments are attenuated by the ability of tumours to circumvent the need for steroid hormones, whilst in most cases, retaining the nuclear steroid receptors. The mechanisms involved in resistance to estrogen deprivation are of major clinical relevance for optimal treatment of breast cancer patients and the development of new therapeutic regimes. We have shown that long-term culture of MCF7 cells in medium depleted of oestrogen (LTED) results in hypersensitivity to oestradiol (E2) coinciding with elevated levels of both ER ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Functional synergy between the transcription factor Sp1 and the estrogen receptor. AU - Porter, W.. AU - Saville, B.. AU - Hoivik, D.. AU - Safe, S.. PY - 1997. Y1 - 1997. N2 - A GC-rich oligonucleotide containing an estrogen responsive element (ERE) half-site from the heat shock protein 27 (Hsp 27) gene promoter (-105 to -84) [i.e. GGGCGGG(N)10GGTCA; Sp1(N)10ERE] forms a complex with the Sp1 and estrogen receptor (ER) proteins. Moreover, promoter-reporter constructs containing this sequence (-108 to -84 or -108 to +23) are also estrogen-responsive. Mutation of the ERE half-site in the Hsp 27-derived oligonucleotides did not result in loss of estrogen responsiveness in transient transfection studies, suggesting that estrogen inducibility was mediated through the Sp1-DNA motif. Gel mobility shift assays using 32P- labeled wild type and ERE mutant Sp1(N)10ERE and consensus Sp1 oligonucleotides showed that Sp1 protein formed a DNA-protein complex with all three nucleotides, and the ...
There is something these times have uniquely in common - postpartum blues, PMS, the hot flashes and insomnia of menopause… They are marked by low levels of the profoundly important hormone estrogen. There is arguably no greater hormonal shift than the sudden drop of estrogen with the delivery of a baby, hence the surprisingly common incidence of postpartum blues. At a time that should be one of the happiest, a large number of new mothers feel depressed. I have understood the physiology behind postpartum blues and depression, but have wondered how estrogen levels affect us (and my teenage patients) on a day-to-day level. What is the mind-body impact of hormonal fluctuations within our monthly cycles? What oral contraceptives make the most sense for patients seeking cycle regularity, acne treatment and/or cessation of painful periods?. First, lets analyze the impact of estrogen - Estrogen has a weighty impact on brain function - it has both neuroprotective and neurostimulatory effects. ...
The role of estrogens within the etiology of prostate cancer is controversial. of estrogen receptor (ER)- with a particular agonist, DPN [2,3-bis(4-hydroxyphenol)-propionitrile], avoided the introduction of prostatic hyperplasia and swelling in testosterone-treated LuRKO mice. Therefore, it appears that in the current presence of adequate androgenic stimulation, its the stability between ER- and ER-mediated signaling that determines whether estrogens promote hyperplasia or protect the prostate against hyperplastic adjustments. Androgens play a central part within the biology from the prostate. Estrogens, nevertheless, may also modulate prostatic development and advancement. There is solid experimental proof that, a minimum of in rodents, extreme or untimely contact with estrogens can induce prostatic neoplasia.1,2,3,4,5,6 Moreover, aromatizable however, not nonaromatizable androgens could cause prostate malignancy.7,8 Alternatively, impaired estrogen actions can also result in structural and ...
Aquaporin 4 (AQP4), the most abundant water channel protein in the brain, is involved in brain edema induced by ischemic insults. To evaluate whether the neuroprotective effects of estrogen are associated with AQP4 expression and edema formation, changes in AQP levels and ischemic edema were examined in the brains of male and female mice subjected to transient middle cerebral artery occlusion. Infarct volume and edema formation were markedly less in females than in males. AQP4 expression in the ischemic cortex of females was relatively well preserved, whereas it was significantly decreased in males. These effects disappeared in ovariectomized females but were reversed by estrogen replacement. Furthermore, AQP4 expression was decreased with increased brain edema in females treated with ICI182,780, an estrogen receptor antagonist. These findings suggest that the estrogen effect on the reduction of ischemic brain edema is associated with the preserved level of AQP4 that is partly mediated by ...

BACKGROUND: There is a higher cardiovascular risk in diabetic women than in nondiabetic women. This would suggest that women with diabetes do not have the cardioprotection associated with estrogen. METHODS: We administered placebo or conjugated equine estrogen, 0.625 mg/day for 8 weeks, to 20 type II diabetic postmenopausal women in a randomized, double-blinded, placebo-controlled, cross-over design. RESULTS: Compared with placebo, estrogen tended to lower ...

(
  • Saliva testing is an excellent method to inexpensively test the important male hormones including estradiol, the most active form of estrogen. (
  • With this novel approach, the researchers successfully measured the fecal levels of estradiol, a type of estrogen. (
  • Most premenopausal women with hormone receptor-positive breast cancer assigned to adjuvant treatment with the aromatase inhibitor exemestane plus triptorelin had large reductions in estrogen levels (estradiol [E2]) during the first year of treatment, according to the results of a preplanned interim analysis of the SOFT-EST substudy. (
  • Inhibit estrogen-receptor replenishment and activate 17-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase in endometrial cells, converting estradiol to the less-active estrone. (
  • The recent study is among the first large, long-term clinical trial to examine the cognitive effects of estradiol, a type of estrogen, on women both close to and long after menopause. (
  • Estradiol is the main type of estrogen produced by women in their reproductive years. (
  • Henderson noted that the study only addressed the effects of estradiol, just one type of estrogen, and did not examine its use in women with existing mild cognitive impairment or dementia. (
  • Estrogen itself exists in one of three forms: estrone, estradiol and estriol. (
  • Their metabolic activity differs (for example estrone is a weaker estrogen than estradiol) and they exist in higher proportions depending on the stage of life a woman is in (estradiol is prevalent in non-pregnant women, estriol is prevalent in pregnant women and estrone is produced during menopause). (
  • Studies have shown that administration of 17β-estradiol (estrogen) after traumahemorrhage normalized cardiac IL-6 levels and restored cardiac functions under those conditions. (

  • Do not take estrogen alone or with a progestin to prevent heart disease, heart attacks, strokes, or dementia. (
  • While progestin addition to estrogen mitigates endometrial cancer risk, the magnitude of the effect on incidence, specific endometrial cancer histologies, and endometrial cancer mortality remains unsettled. (
  • These issues were assessed by analyses after extended follow-up of the Women's Health Initiative (WHI) randomized clinical trial evaluating continuous combined estrogen plus progestin use. (
  • There was a statistically nonsignificant reduction in deaths from endometrial cancer in the estrogen plus progestin group (5 vs 11 deaths, HR = 0.42, 95% CI = 0.15 to 1.22). (
  • In postmenopausal women, continuous combined estrogen plus progestin decreases endometrial cancer incidence. (
  • [ 6 ] While a few case-control studies describe increased endometrial cancer risk with long-duration combined hormone therapy, [ 7 , 8 ] a recent meta-analysis of published cohort studies found a statistically significantly lower endometrial cancer risk with continuous combined estrogen plus progestin use. (
  • Against this background, in earlier reports from the Women's Health Initiative (WHI) randomized, placebo-controlled trial evaluating continuous combined estrogen plus progestin fewer endometrial cancers were seen with combined hormone therapy use, but the differences were not statistically significant. (
  • [ 13 , 14 ] Recently, with median cumulative follow-up of 13 years in this trial, estrogen plus progestin use was found to statistically significantly decrease endometrial cancer incidence. (
  • [ 15 ] In the current report, we extend that finding by providing analyses on estrogen plus progestin effects on endometrial cancer type, findings in relevant clinical subgroups, and information on endometrial cancer-related mortality. (
  • The treatment may consist solely of estrogen (estrogen replacement therapy, or ERT), or it may involve a combination of estrogen and progestin, a synthetic form of progesterone. (
  • The Women's Health Initiative was halted last summer after the study's safety monitoring board determined that women taking the estrogen-progestin combination (Prempro) had an increased risk for breast cancer, stroke, and heart disease. (
  • Estrogen therapy is also called unopposed estrogen therapy because a second hormone (progestin) is not used along with the estrogen. (
  • Estrogen and progestin are two female sex hormones. (
  • Combinations of estrogen and progestin work by preventing ovulation (the release of eggs from the ovaries). (
  • Many 28-tablet packets have certain color tablets that contain different amounts of estrogen and progestin, but also may have other color tablets which contain an inactive ingredient or a folate supplement. (
  • If we are talking about therapy of estrogen replacement in case of women who didn't have their uterus removed, there is also the need of extra progestin to avoid the overgrowth of the lining of the uterus as a result of estrogen because this could lead to endometrial cancer. (
  • Previous studies from the WHI, for example, have clearly shown that combination therapy with estrogen plus progestin increases breast cancer incidence and death, as well as lung cancer mortality . (
  • And just 2 months ago, British researchers reporting on longer-term follow-up from the Million Women Study (MWS) also found that combination estrogen and progestin therapy, when started immediately after menopause, increased breast cancer risk regardless of hysterectomy status. (

  • Some brands of estrogen are also used to treat vaginal dryness, itching, or burning, or to prevent osteoporosis (a condition in which the bones become thin and weak and break easily) in women who are experiencing or have experienced menopause. (
  • This type of estrogen is present in the body after menopause . (
  • Estrogen therapy can help manage menopause symptoms as part of hormone therapy, which people usually refer to as hormone replacement therapy . (
  • To a large degree this seems to result from the decline in estrogen levels after the menopause. (
  • While going on estrogen replacement is a complex decision requiring the analysis of one's medical history, women after menopause can get the skin benefits of estrogen with topical preparations. (
  • The body naturally produces less estrogen after menopause, when the ovaries are removed, or as a result of some other health conditions. (
  • Estrogen replacement therapy is also known as ERT and it is meant to increase the levels of estrogen in the body in case of the women who enter menopause. (
  • As it has been mentioned before, ERT is used in order to increase the estrogen levels of the women who have gone through menopause or have no uterus. (
  • The younger women who experience early menopause as a result of the removal of their uterus use estrogen replacement therapy in order to make sure that they will be able to avoid osteoporosis or early bone loss. (
  • The WHI estrogen-alone clinical trial, launched in 1993, randomly assigned more than 10,739 women between the ages of 50 and 79-all of whom were past menopause and had had a hysterectomy-to take daily estrogen or a placebo. (
  • In absolute terms, the current analysis indicated, there would be eight fewer cases of breast cancer for every 10,000 women who had undergone menopause and had a hysterectomy if they took estrogen daily for 6 years. (

  • Estrogen has long been prescribed to women dealing with menopause and osteoporosis. (
  • Contrary to popular belief, taking estrogen after menopause may not affect the memory and thinking abilities of healthy women no matter when the treatment is started. (
  • Millions of women take estrogen to treat hot flashes, night sweats and other symptoms caused by menopause. (
  • Our results suggest that healthy women at all stages after menopause should not take estrogen to improve memory. (
  • For women, it helps battle excess estrogen in your system that can make menopause symptoms like hot flashes and night sweats worse. (
  • The reason is that during menopause, estrogen levels drop-and estrogen is what keeps your arteries flexible and strengthens your arterial walls. (
  • The drop in body estrogen levels when a woman is between 45 and 55 years old causes the "change of life" or menopause (the end of monthly menstrual periods). (
  • This medicine is also used to treat moderate to severe menopausal changes in and around your vagina and to treat certain conditions in women before menopause if their ovaries do not make enough estrogens naturally. (
  • Estrogen is in a class of medications called hormones. (
  • The use of female sex hormones, both estrogens and progestogens, during early pregnancy may seriously damage the offspring. (
  • Of all hormones that decline with age, estrogens have the most dramatic effect on the skin. (

  • The term 'estrogen dominance' refers to when estrogen is in higher quantities than needed, and it's usually higher in relation to the other sex hormones. (
  • This article focuses on estrogen dominance, but it should be noted that deficiencies or excess of any of the four hormones listed above can cause issues. (
  • In order to fully understand the concept of estrogen dominance, it is important to understand that the term 'estrogen' is actually describing a family of hormones. (
  • Instead of having your hormones converted into higher levels of estrogen, the anti estrogen ingredients promote a healthier hormone balance. (
  • Some help regulate hormones, such as estrogen. (
  • For example, researchers in one 2013 study studied the effects of estrogen and progesterone on female and male mice to determine if the hormones caused constipation. (
  • Estrogens are hormones made by a woman's ovaries. (
  • Three independent case control studies have reported an increased risk of endometrial cancer in postmenopausal women exposed to exogenous estrogens for prolonged periods.1-3 This risk was independent of the other known risk factors for endometrial cancer. (
  • Several studies indicate that postmenopausal women on estrogen replacement therapy develop less wrinkles and have better skin texture and elasticity than those not taking estrogens. (
  • New Haven, CT- Postmenopausal sexual function is a problem many women might be hesitant to address with pharmacists or other healthcare professionals, but new research suggests that a type of estrogen therapy appears to help. (
  • An article in JAMA Internal Medicine reports that sexual function in early postmenopausal women showed some improvement with use of transdermal estrogen therapy. (
  • In a group of 37 postmenopausal women treated with conjugated estrogens and medroxyprogesterone for 12 months, urinary zinc and magnesium loss was reduced in those women who began the study with signs of osteoporosis and elevated zinc and magnesium excretion. (
  • The society published a clinical guide on low-dose vaginal estrogens for postmenopausal vaginal atrophy also including a summary of recommendations. (
  • These and other recommendations presented in the EMAS clinical guide are published in the article: "EMAS clinical guide: Low-dose vaginal estrogens for postmenopausal vaginal atrophy" by Margaret Rees, Faustino R.

(
  • Even with serial estrogen and gonadotropin assessments, establishing a definitive menopausal status remains elusive, and the possibility of a later recovery still exists, as illustrated by E2 levels greater than 2.72 pg/mL observed during triptorelin plus exemestane among women with baseline postmenopausal levels. (
  • OBJECTIVE: To describe the association between postmenopausal estrogen-only therapy use and risk of ovarian carcinoma, specifically with regard to disease histotype and duration and timing of use. (
  • CONCLUSION: We found evidence of an increased risk of serous and endometrioid ovarian carcinoma associated with postmenopausal estrogen-only therapy use, particularly of long duration. (
  • At the same time, women need not particularly be concerned about negative effects of postmenopausal estrogen supplements on memory when used for less than five years. (
  • Vaginal estrogen therapy, if not contraindicated, should be recommended to perimenopausal and postmenopausal women with rUTIs to decrease the risk of future UTI. (
  • Since these anti-estrogens interfere with the transcriptional activity of the estrogen receptor and block promotion of estrogen receptor-dependent gene expression, it appears that this process is not involved in micronucleus formation. (
  • Caberlin 0.5 against the background of other Anti Estrogens stands out for its power. (
  • Arimidex tends to work quite differently than the traditional anti-estrogens. (
  • Anti-estrogens like Clomid or Nolvadex tend to intercept estrogen receptors in certain tissues while activating them in others. (
  • Estrogen is thought to have various effects on the intestinal barrier, modifying colonic permeability and mediating inflammation through effects on estrogen receptors, which could lead to changes in gut immunity. (
  • Excess estrogen can saturate testosterone receptors in the hypothalamus in the brain therefore reducing the signal sent to the pituitary gland. (
  • We examined 20-month-old male rats, in which abnormalities of the HPA axis included altered response to stress, reduced effectiveness of the steroid negative feedback and low expression of hippocampal glucocorticoid receptors (GR). Estrogen treatment of aging rats normalized the response to stress, restored the dexamethasone inhibition of the stress response and increased GR density in defined hippocampal areas. (

  • Exogenous estrogen use increases endometrial cancer risk. (
  • The well-known importance of estradiol's role in postnatal development of the body, brain and behavior has in recent years raised specific concerns about how exogenous estrogens, or environmental estrogens, such as those found in soy, fruits and vegetables, plastics and common household items, affect lifelong health. (
  • Epidemiology of exogenous estrogens. (
  • Before you begin taking estrogen, tell your doctor if you have or have ever had cancer and if you have unusual vaginal bleeding. (
  • Call your doctor immediately if you have abnormal or unusual vaginal bleeding during your treatment with estrogen. (
  • In the vagina, estrogen maintains the thickness of the vaginal wall and promotes lubrication. (
  • It has been shown that females exposed in utero to diethylstilbestrol, a non-steroidal estrogen, have an increased risk of developing in later life a form of vaginal or cervical cancer that is ordinarily extremely rare. (
  • This guide provides the evidence for the clinical use of low-dose vaginal estrogens for this condition, focusing on publications since the 2006 Cochrane systematic review. (
  • The guide concludes that low-dose vaginal estrogens are effective and that there is no need for added progestogens for endometrial protection if topical estrogens are used in the recommended doses. (
  • Declining levels of the hormone oestrogen can lead to vaginal tightness, dryness and atrophy. (
  • By analyzing these specimens in a side-by-side manner we were able to determine the true effect of estrogen on the micro-architecture," Genant told Medscape. (

  • Along with this decline in testosterone with age and lifestyle, many men also experience increases in the levels of estrogen. (
  • The result is a testosterone/estrogen imbalance that directly causes many of the debilitating health problems associated with normal aging. (
  • The end result is that these high levels of estrogen can cause reduced levels of testosterone, fatigue, loss of muscle tone, increased body fat, loss of libido and sexual function and an enlarged prostate. (
  • In youth, small amounts of estrogen are used to reduce the cell-stimulating effects of testosterone. (
  • But when there is too little testosterone present, estrogen attaches to testosterone cell receptor sites throughout the body. (
  • Subsequently, as estrogen levels increase with age, testosterone is not able to stimulate the cells causing reduced sexual arousal and sensation as well the loss of libido. (
  • 3) A reduced effectiveness of the testosterone replacement therapy due to excess aromatization of testosterone medications to estrogen. (
  • The evidence is clear that it is essential for men who are concerned about healthy aging, who are suffering from symptoms of low testosterone or undergoing testosterone replacement therapy need to take aggressive action and assess their estrogen levels and reduce any excessive estrogen to a safe range. (
  • Fat cells, especially in the abdominal region, produce the aromatase enzyme, which converts testosterone into estrogen. (
  • Case and control subjects had their sex hormone levels measured at baseline (estrogens, testosterone, progesterone and sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG)) and at year 1 (estrogens and SHBG) using sensitive assays. (
  • Both Chrysin and DIM work as aromatase inhibitors - meaning they inhibit the aromatase enzyme from converting testosterone into estrogen in a man's body. (
  • Slowing down this conversion will free up some testosterone, balance out estrogen levels, and keep your hormone levels at normal healthy levels. (

  • The hormone estrogen peaks just before ovulation. (
  • The longer you take estrogen, the greater the risk that you will develop endometrial cancer. (
  • These studies are further supported by the finding that incidence rates of endometrial cancer have increased sharply since 1969 in eight different areas of the United States with population-based cancer reporting systems, an increase which may be related to the rapidly expanding use of estrogens during the last decade. (
  • The three case control studies reported that the risk of endometrial cancer in estrogen users was about 4.5 to 13.9 times greater than in nonusers. (
  • Estrogen used alone can cause cancer of the lining of the uterus (endometrial cancer). (

  • Harry K. Genant, MD, professor of radiology and medicine at the University of California, San Francisco, said that after two years of estrogen replacement therapy, "trabecular bone appears to retain most of its plate structure," which suggests that the resorption process associated with osteoporosis is slowed or halted. (
  • Note that it is unknown why the effects on inflammatory bowel disease would be different for estrogen levels associated with oral contraceptives compared with those with hormone replacement therapy. (
  • As to why the effects would be different for estrogen levels associated with oral contraceptives compared with those with hormone replacement therapy, he observed that "estrogen has pleiotropic effects," and there may be different risk factors at different ages, but said he had no specific mechanism to offer. (
  • Estrogen therapy (ET) is a treatment for women that helps replenish low estrogen levels. (
