Abstract Insofar as altered estrogen receptor-progesterone receptor (PR) expression contribute to breast cancer pathogenesis, previous studies examined the association of genetic variation in PR gene (PGR) with breast cancer, but with mixed outcome. We evaluated the association between PGR variants, and breast cancer and associated features. A retrospective case-control study involving 183 female breast cancer patients, and 222 control women. PGR genotyping was done by real-time PCR. Minor allele frequencies of rs1042838, rs590688, and rs10895068 PGR gene polymorphisms were significantly higher in breast cancer pa...

Conclusions Exogenous testosterone inhibits spermatogenesis. Hypogonadal men wanting to preserve their fertility and at the same time benefiting from TRT effects can be prescribed selective oestrogen receptor modulators or testosterone plus low-dose human chorionic gonadotrophin (hCG). Patients treated for infertility with hypogonadotrophic hypogonadism can be prescribed hCG alone at first followed by or in combination from the start with follicle-stimulating hormone preparations.

AbstractVarious studies have confirmed the important roles of endogenous hormones in the development of gliomas, while the roles of exogenous hormones remain controversial. Based on case-control studies and cohort studies, a meta-analysis was exerted to explore the effect of two exogenous hormones use (HRT: hormone replacement therapy; OC: oral contraceptives) on glioma risk. 16 eligible studies, including 11 case-control studies and 5 cohort studies, containing 8055027 women, were included in our study. All included studies have reported the relative risks (RRs) or odds ratios (ORs), and 95% confidence intervals (CIs). We...

Conclusion On the basis of current evidences, acupoint stimulation therapy has a better clinical efficacy and safety for treatment of POI when compared with HRT. The acupoint stimulation therapies ranking the top 3 have more significant curative effects, but the long-term efficacy and the effect on the ovarian function still need to be further explored. In addition, the conclusion of this study still needs to be verified through a large number of RCTs with reasonable designs and appropriate methods.

BackgroundThere is a lack of consensus on the optimal dose and form of progesterone supplementation during frozen‐thawed embryo transfer with hormone replacement therapy. AimsWe aim to identify the serum progesterone concentration on day 16 most likely to result in positive pregnancy outcomes. Materials and methodsWe undertook a retrospective study of 4582 women who underwent frozen embryo transfer with hormone replacement therapy, or natural frozen embryo transfer, over 14 years at a multi‐site private in vitro fertilisation clinic. Embryos were 3–5 days of age at time of transfer. We extracted data on...

Publication date: February 2018 Source:Journal of Functional Foods, Volume 41 Author(s): Naice E.S. Monteiro, Lívia D. Queirós, Danielle B. Lopes, Adriana O. Pedro, Gabriela A. Macedo Menopause is a natural event that occurs in women around the age of 50 years, causing irregularities in the menstrual cycle until its complete end, due to the hormonal deficit, especially estrogen, that causes several unpleasant urogenital and vasomotor symptoms. Hormone replacement therapy has many benefits, but should be prescribed with caution in women with a history of stroke, thromboembolic events, certain types of cance...

ConclusionsMore than 50% in the total cohort had hormone replacement. Although adherence was generally good, this study shows that hormone replacement therapy may be improved. This may be achieved by better individualization of the treatment and by providing specific information to patients regarding both long‐term and short‐term hormonal effects and side effects.
