We report a case of a 42-year-old woman with a history of bilateral ductal carcinoma of the breast who underwent radical mastectomy with chemotherapy and radiotherapy was anxious to conceive. In vitro fertilization was performed with donor oocyte; the patient became pregnant and delivered a full term baby with no congenital anomalies. As very few have a background for providing guidance and treatment in this setting, this report highlights the possibility of improving the quality of reproductive life of young survivors by various assisted reproductive techniques, the importance of fertility preservation and a multidisciplinary team approach.

Although not part of initial curative-intent treatment in women with other reproductive cancers, alkylating chemotherapy is often used to treat women with curable breast cancer. Chemotherapy-associated ovarian failure (COF) is a potential consequence of this treatment, and can cause infertility and increase the risk of cognitive impairment, cardiovascular disease and fractures from redu...

Abstract The measurement of estrogens is important for diagnosing and monitoring the health of women, men, and children. For example, for postmenopausal women or women undergoing treatment for breast cancer with aromatase inhibitors, the measurement of extremely low concentrations of estrogens in serum, especially estradiol, is problematic but essential for proper medical care. Achieving superb analytical sensitivity and specificity has been and continues to be a challenge for the clinical laboratory, but is a challenge that is being taken seriously. Focusing on publications from 2012 to 2017, this review will pro...

Converted from androgen via aromatase enzyme, this hormone is indispensable to glucose homeostasis, immune robustness, bone health, cardiovascular health, fertility, and neural functions. However, estrogen is at the center of almost all human pathologies as well-infectious, autoi...
