Laura J Deleruyelle
The use of compounded bioidentical hormone replacement therapy by menopausal women has become a popular alternative to traditional synthetic conjugated equine estrogen and progestin hormone replacement therapy due to safety concerns raised by recent studies. However, due to the lack of randomized, large-scale trials to evaluate the efficacy and side-effect profile of compounded bioidentical hormone replacement therapy many healthcare providers are reluctant to prescribe such therapy. The purpose of this study was to compare women's menopausal symptom relief and side effects experienced when using compounded bioidentical hormone replacement therapy and traditional hormone replacement therapy...

Nivolumab, an anti-programmed death-1 antibody, is a breakthrough treatment for several malignancies. Its specific adverse effects caused by autoimmunity are termed immune-related adverse events, which involve several endocrine dysfunctions. Herein, we report two cases of isolated adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) deficiency induced by nivolumab for the treatment of metastatic malignant melanoma. Case 1 was a 39-year-old man and Case 2 was a 50-year-old woman, both of whom presented with progressive melanoma...

STUDY QUESTION: Does the use of hCG as luteal phase support in natural cycle frozen embryo transfer (FET) increase the ongoing pregnancy rate? STUDY ANSWER: The use of hCG in natural cycle FET did not improve the ongoing pregnancy rate. WHAT IS KNOWN ALREADY: The use of luteal phase support in stimulated cycles has been associated with higher live-birth rates and the results are similar when using hCG or progesterone. STUDY DESIGN SIZE, DURATION: This is a randomized double-blinded controlled trial of 450 women recruited between August 2013 and October 2015...

Hypoparathyroidism is a rare disorder characterized by low serum calcium levels and high serum phosphate levels. This disease is commonly treated with calcium supplements and active vitamin D metabolites or analogues, but large doses of these supplements are often utilized to relieve the symptoms caused by hypocalcemia, without guarantee of a physiological normalization of calcium-phosphate homeostasis. Areas covered: Several studies have investigated replacement therapy with recombinant human PTH [rhPTH (1-84) and rhPTH (1-34)] for subjects with hypoparathyroidism...

A 54-year-old woman presented to our centre with acute abdominal pain and vomiting. Routine blood tests showed severe hypercalcaemia (>4 mmol/L). Serum parathyroid hormone (PTH) was suppressed. CT scan detected a pancreatic mass and some liver lesions, initially suspicious for metastatic pancreatic adenocarcinoma. Liver biopsy however revealed the presence of a well-differentiated, grade 1, metastatic neuroendocrine tumour (NET) where prognosis is considerably better. Serum PTHrP was raised, indicating paraneoplastic hypercalcaemia, most likely secondary to the pancreatic NET...

BACKGROUND: Suboptimal thyroid hormone therapy including under-replacement and over-replacement is common amongst patients with hypothyroidism. This is a significant health concern as affected patients are at risk of adverse cardiovascular or metabolic consequences. Despite a growing body of evidence on the effects of various factors on thyroid hormone replacement, a systematic appraisal of the evidence is lacking. This review aims to appraise and quantify the extent to which clinical, behavioural and pharmacogenomic factors affect levothyroxine therapy in patients with primary hypothyroidism...

(no author information available yet)
Pituitary stalk interruption syndrome (PSIS) is a congenital disease with isolated growth hormone deficiency (GHD) or multiple anterior pituitary hormone deficiencies (MPHD). The typical clinical manifestations of PSIS are growth retardation, hypoglycemia or delayed pubertal development. However, few reports showed cases of PSIS were diagnosed with acute epileptic seizures accompanied by hyponatremia. Here, we report an 18-year-old female presenting with episodes of intermittent seizures for 13 years. The electrolyte examination on many occasions has shown hyponatremia, even as low as 99...

PURPOSE: The data on the association between hormone replacement therapy and the increased risk of venous thromboembolism (VTE) in postmenopausal women are conflicting. The observed differences between oral estrogen and oral estrogen-progestogen combination formulations may be the result of bias from depletion of susceptibles. METHODS: We used United Kingdom's Clinical Practice Research Datalink to identify the cohort of all women aged 50 to 79 during 1987-2008, with all incident cases of VTE occurring during the study period identified...

PURPOSE: Liquid-chromatography tandem mass-spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) was developed in parallel to Immunoassays (IAs) and today is proposed as the "gold standard" for steroid assays. Leydig cells of men with Klinefelter syndrome (KS) are able to respond to human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) stimulation, even if testosterone (T) production was impaired. The aim was to evaluate how results obtained by IAs and LC-MS/MS can differently impact on the outcome of a clinical research on gonadal steroidogenesis after hCG stimulation...

Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) affects the incidence and potential progression of colorectal cancer (CRC). As HRT primarily consists of estrone sulfate (E1S), understanding whether this conjugated estrogen is transported and metabolized in CRC will define its potential effect in this malignancy. Here, we show that a panel of CRC cell lines (Colo205, Caco2, HCT116, HT-29) have steroid sulfatase (STS) activity, and thus can hydrolyze E1S. STS activity is significantly higher in CRC cell lysate, suggesting the importance of E1S transport in intracellular STS substrate availability...

Osteoporosis, a bone disease resulting in loss of bone density and microstructure quality, is often associated with fragility fractures, and the latter imposes a great burden on the patient and society. Although there are several different treatments available for osteoporosis such as hormone replacement therapy, bisphosphonates, Denosumab, and parathyroid hormone some concern has been raised regarding the inherent side effects of their long term use. It would be of great relevance to search for alternative natural compounds, which could complementarily overcome the limitations of the currently available therapy...

BACKGROUND: Ethanol (EtOH) intake correlates with increased risk-taking, and sex differences exist in both EtOH use and risk-taking in humans and rats. However, the interaction of sex and gonadal hormones to affect risk-taking under the influence of EtOH has not been determined. This was the focus of the current study. METHODS: Adult Long-Evans rats (n=18 males and females) were gonadectomized and received hormone replacement at physiologic levels or blank implants (n=7-9/group)...

Context: Lobectomy is preferred in thyroid cancer to decrease surgical complications and avoid lifelong thyroid-hormone replacement. However, postoperative hypothyroidism, requiring thyroid-hormone replacement, may occur. Objective: We aimed to identify the incidence and risk factors of postoperative hypothyroidism to develop a surveillance strategy after lobectomy for papillary thyroid microcarcinoma (PTMC). Methods: This historical cohort study involved 335 PTMC patients treated by lobectomy...

Context: A significant proportion of athyreotic LT4-treated patients experience hypothyroid-like symptoms. During LT4 replacement, levels of the active hormone triiodothyronine (T3) strictly depend on type-2-deiodinase (D2)-mediated activation of LT4. The Thr92Ala polymorphism and the 258 G/A in the DIO2 gene have been associated with various clinical conditions. Objectives: To investigate the effects of DIO2 polymorphisms in thyroid hormone homeostasis. Design: We compared the pre-surgical hormonal status of thyroidectomized LT4-treated patients who had a similar TSH level, to their post-surgery status, and analyzed their DIO2 genotype in a subgroup of 102/140 (72...

This study was undertaken to determine the mechanism whereby calcitropic hormones and mesenchymal stem cell progeny changes involved in bone repletion, a regenerative bone process that restores the bone lost to calcium deficiency. To initiate depletion, weanling mice with a mixed C57BL/6 (75%) and CD1 (25%) genetic background were fed a calcium-deficient diet (0.01%) for 14 days. For repletion, the mice were re-fed a control diet containing 1.2% calcium for 14 days. Depletion decreased plasma calcium and increased plasma PTH, 1,25(OH)2D, and CTX...
