Introduction: Microscopic haematuria is common in adults and it has been reported in 13% of postmenopausal women. Objective: To evaluate the changes in urinary sediment after the use of vaginal conjugated oestrogens. Material and methods: Postmenopausal women with vaginal dryness were studied. In all them a urinalysis was done, looking for density, pH, and the presence of leukocytes and erythrocytes. In order to be included in the study, all of the women had to have microscopic haematuria, considered as the presence of 3 or more erythrocytes in the urinary sediment...

WHAT IS KNOWN AND OBJECTIVE: Oestrogens could inhibit the metabolism of drugs, such as calcineurin inhibitors, that are substrates for cytochrome P-450 microsomal enzymes. This study assessed the potential tacrolimus interaction with oral conjugated oestrogen in kidney transplant recipients who received conjugated oestrogen as prophylaxis against bleeding, before kidney biopsy. METHODS: In this case-control study, 13 kidney transplant recipients who received oral conjugated oestrogen as prophylaxis against uraemic bleeding before allograft biopsy were considered as cases...

BACKGROUND: Cytochrome P450 1B1 (CYP1B1) is a key enzyme in its oestrogen metabolism pathway, giving rise to hydroxylation and conjugation. Functionally relevant genetic variants within CYP1B1 may affect the telomere length and subsequently lead to prostate carcinogenesis. METHODS: We evaluated 8 CYP1B1 tag single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in 1015 men with prostate cancer (PCa) and 1052 cancer-free controls, and calculated odds ratios (ORs) and 95% confidence intervals (CIs) to estimate their association with risk of PCa...

BACKGROUND: Recent research indicates a favourable influence of postmenopausal hormone therapy (HT) if initiated early, but not late, on subclinical atherosclerosis. However, the clinical relevance of timing of HT initiation for hard end points such as stroke remains to be determined. Further, no previous research has considered the timing of initiation of HT in relation to haemorrhagic stroke risk. The importance of the route of administration, type, active ingredient, and duration of HT for stroke risk is also unclear...

OBJECTIVES: Targeted delivery of mitoxantrone (MTO, an anthraquinone drug with high antitumour effect) may be achieved using a novel nanoparticulate delivery system via binding the oestrogen receptor (ER, highly expressed in a variety of human tumours). METHODS: A novel liposomal nanoparticle (NP) was developed using a conjugate derived from 1, 2-distearoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphoethanolamine-N-[amino (polyethylene glycol)-2000] (DSPE-PEG2000 -NH2 ) and oestrone (ES, is known to bind the ER) to produce an ES-targeted PEGylated liposome (ES-SSL)...

Duavive (Pfizer) is a modified-release formulation of conjugated oestrogens plus bazedoxifene acetate (a selective oestrogen receptor modulator). It is licensed for treatment of oestrogen deficiency symptoms in postmenopausal women with a uterus for whom treatment with progestogen-containing therapy is not appropriate.(1,2) It was licensed by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) in 2014 and launched in the UK in July 2016.(1,3) Here, we review the evidence on efficacy and safety of conjugated oestrogens/bazedoxifene and consider its place in the management of symptoms associated with the menopause...

Background: Plasma aldosterone/renin ratio (ARR) is the most popular screening test for primary aldosteronism (PA). Because both estrogen and progesterone (including in oral contraceptive agents) affect aldosterone and renin levels, we studied the effects of combined hormonal replacement therapy (HRT) on ARR; renin was measured as both direct renin concentration (DRC) and plasma renin activity (PRA). Methods: Fifteen normotensive, healthy postmenopausal women underwent measurement (seated, midmorning) of plasma aldosterone, DRC, PRA, electrolytes, and creatinine and urinary aldosterone, cortisol, electrolytes, and creatinine at baseline and after 2 weeks and 6 weeks of treatment with combined HRT (conjugated estrogens 0...

Aromatase is a critical enzyme in the irreversible conversion of androgens to oestrogens, with inhibition used clinically in hormone-dependent malignancies. We tested the hypothesis that targeted aromatase inhibition in an aggressive brain cancer called glioblastoma (GBM) may represent a new treatment strategy. In this study, aromatase inhibition was achieved using third generation inhibitor, Letrozole, encapsulated within the core of biodegradable poly lactic-co-glycolic acid (PLGA) nanoparticles (NPs). PLGA-NPs were conjugated to human/mouse chimeric anti-GD2 antibody ch14...

Tamoxifen (TAM) is an established endocrine treatment for all stages of oestrogen receptor (ER)-positive breast cancer. Its complex metabolism leads to the formation of multiple active and inactive metabolites. One of the main detoxification and elimination pathways of tamoxifen and its active metabolites, 4-hydroxytamoxifen (4-OHT) and endoxifen, is via glucuronidation catalysed by uridine 5'-diphospho-glucuronosyltransferases (UGTs). However, few studies have comprehensively examined the impact of variations in the genes encoding the major hepatic UGTs on the disposition of tamoxifen and its metabolites...

A 24-amino acid leader peptide of a new human recombinant manganese superoxide dismutase can enter cells and carry molecules. Here, we demonstrated that six of the 24 amino acids penetrate cells through a particular gate represented by a specific amino acid sequence of the oestrogen receptor (ER). We analysed the internalization of the synthetic hexapeptide and the cytotoxic activity of the hexapeptide conjugated to cisplatin on a cell line panel. In most cell lines, the hexapeptide delivered an amount of cisplatin that was 2 to 8 times greater than that released by cisplatin when the drug was used alone...

Sepsis is the host's deleterious systemic inflammatory response to microbial infections. Here we report an essential role for the oestrogen sulfotransferase (EST or SULT1E1), a conjugating enzyme that sulfonates and deactivates estrogens, in sepsis response. Both the caecal ligation and puncture (CLP) and lipopolysaccharide models of sepsis induce the expression of EST and compromise the activity of oestrogen, an anti-inflammatory hormone. Surprisingly, EST ablation sensitizes mice to sepsis-induced death. Mechanistically, EST ablation attenuates sepsis-induced inflammatory responses due to compromised oestrogen deactivation, leading to increased sepsis lethality...

Integrins are the dominant and final adhesion molecules in the attachment process between the blastocysts and endometrium. It is necessary for oestrogen to rapidly activate mouse blastocysts so that they attach to the endometrial epithelium. Our previous study suggested that oestrogen can rapidly induce an increase in intracellular calcium in mouse blastocysts via G-protein-coupled receptor 30 (GPR30). Thus, we deduced that integrins may be involved in GPR30 mediation of the fast effect of oestrogen on mouse blastocysts in implantation...

Current systematic review evaluated the efficacy of topical isoflavones to relieve vaginal symptoms in menopausal women. MEDLINE (1966 to January 2014), Scopus (1990 to January 2014), and the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (The Cochrane Library issue 1, 2013) were searched using keywords 'isoflavone and vagina'. Relevant studies were reviewed by two independent reviewers. Only randomised controlled trials (RCTs) were included in the systematic review. Out of 115 potentially relevant publications, four studies met the inclusion criteria...

AIMS/HYPOTHESIS: Oestrogens have previously been shown to exert beta cell protective, glucose-lowering effects in mouse models. Therefore, the recent development of a glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1)-oestrogen conjugate, which targets oestrogen into cells expressing GLP-1 receptors, offers an opportunity for a cell-specific and enhanced beta cell protection by oestrogen. The purpose of this study was to compare the effects of GLP-1 and GLP-1-oestrogen during beta cell failure under glucolipotoxic conditions...

BACKGROUND: Myosin X (MYO10) was recently reported to promote tumour invasion by transporting integrins to filopodial tips in breast cancer. However, the role of MYO10 in tumours remains poorly defined. Here, we report that MYO10 is required in invadopodia to mediate invasive growth and extracellular matrix degradation, which depends on the binding of MYO10's pleckstrin homology domain to PtdIns(3,4,5)P3. METHODS: The expression of MYO10 and its associations with clinicopathological and biological factors were examined in breast cancer cells and breast cancer specimens (n=120)...

Steroid oestrogens are typical endocrine-disrupting compounds in the environment and are excreted from the human and animals mainly as conjugates, including sulfate and glucuronide salts. The oestrogen conjugates are largely biologically inactive, but they can be de-conjugated and release free oestrogens, which usually exhibit strong oestrogenicity. Therefore, it is important to study the fate of oestrogen conjugates in the environment. However, because of the complexity of environmental matrixes, time-consuming pre-treatments of samples are usually required to reduce the interference of the matrixes...

Breast cancer is the most frequently diagnosed cancer in women and ranks second among causes for cancer related death in women. The ability to identify and diagnose breast cancer has improved markedly. Treatment decisions which were based in the past predominantly on the anatomic extent of the disease are shifting to the underlying biological mechanisms. Gene array technology has led to the recognition that breast cancer is a heterogeneous disease composed of different biological subtypes, and genetic profiling enables response to chemotherapy to be predicted...
