Authors: Gravholt CH, Chang S, Wallentin M, Fedder J, Moore P, Skakkebæk A Abstract Although first identified over 70 years ago, Klinefelter syndrome (KS) continue to pose significant diagnostic challenges, as many patients are still misdiagnosed, or remain undiagnosed. In fact, as few as 25% of KS patients are accurately diagnosed, and most of these diagnoses are not made until adulthood. Classic characteristics of KS include small testes, infertility, hypergonadothropic hypogonadism, and cognitive impairment. However, the pathophysiology behind KS is not well understood, although genetic effects are also th...

Huixiao Hong Endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) can mimic natural hormone to interact with receptors in the endocrine system and thus disrupt the functions of the endocrine system, raising concerns on the public health. In addition to disruption of the endocrine system, some EDCs have been found associated with many diseases such as breast cancer, prostate cancer, infertility, asthma, stroke, Alzheimer’s disease, obesity, and diabetes mellitus. EDCs that binding androgen receptor have been reported associated with diabetes mellitus in in vitro, animal, and clinical studies. In this review, we summarize the st...

Authors: Ariga H, Iguchi-Ariga SMM Abstract The DJ-1 gene is an oncogene and also causative gene for a familial form of Parkinson disease. Although exits of cancer and neurodegenerative diseases, including Parkinson disease, are completely opposite, there are some common points of view between both diseases, including growth and death signaling pathways, and oxidative stresses affect the onset and pathogenesis of both cancer and neurodegenerative diseases. DJ-1 has versatile functions and plays a role in protection against oxidative stress. Inactivation and/or excess activation of DJ-1 functions, therefore, leads t...

Funding Opportunity PA-18-049 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. The purpose of this funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is to support exploratory/developmental research that explores the premise that fertility status can be a marker for overall health. It is clear that chronic conditions such as cancer, diabetes, and obesity can impair fertility, however less is known about the extent to which fertility status can impact or act as a marker for overall health. Data suggest that infertility is not necessarily a unique disease of the reproductive axis, but is often physiologically or genetically linked with oth...

Our ancestors thrived on eating fish fresh from the ocean. After all, fish is a pure source of protein and healthy omega-3 fats. But our modern fish supply is vastly different than anything our ancestors ate. As our oceans have become more and more polluted, so has our seafood. In fact, the fish on your dinner plate today is likely loaded with plastic trash. Let me explain… Every year, billions of pounds of plastic waste pour into our oceans and rivers. I’m talking about things like grocery bags, drinking straws, water bottles and more. It’s now estimated that up to 51 trillion pieces of plastic c...

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is the most frequent endocrine disorder in women of reproductive age, affecting 4%-10% of the population. It is a complex disorder classically characterized by chronic oligo- or anovulation, polycystic ovaries, and hyperandrogenism. It is also associated with a number of comorbid conditions, including type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, dyslipidemia, obesity, infertility, and breast and endometrial cancer [1,2]. In addition, psychiatric disorders are observed more often in PCOS patients than in the general population, particularly depressive, anxiety, and eating disorders [3 –6].

Conclusion: To address the many challenges posed by EDCs, we argue that Africans should take the lead in prioritization and evaluation of environmental hazards, including EDCs. We recommend the institution of education and training programs for chemical users, adoption of the precautionary principle, establishment of biomonitoring programs, and funding of community-based epidemiology and wildlife research programs led and funded by African institutes and private companies. https://doi.org/10.1289/EHP1774 Received: 16 February 2017 Revised: 22 May 2017 Accepted: 24 May 2017 Published: 22 August 2017 Address correspond...
