Menopause: new frontiers in the treatment of urogenital atrophy.

CONCLUSIONS: The results of these first three cases pointed to autologous and micro-fragmented adipose tissue as a safe, feasible and effective therapeutic approach for the treatment of post-menopausal urogenital atrophy. PMID: 29424920 [PubMed - in process]

Abstract Excessive adiposity has long been proved to be associated with greater incidence and mortality of breast cancer in post-menopausal women. However, the effects and underlying mechanisms of human adipocytes on breast cancer cells remain largely unknown. In recent years, several reports have revealed the oncogenic role of long non-coding RNA PVT1 in breast cancer. Here, we aimed to investigate the role and underlying mechanisms of PVT1 in triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) cells cultured with mature adipogenic medium. At first, we successfully induced adipogenic differentiation from human adipose-derived m...

This study shows that some genetic changes linked to cancer are present in surprisingly large numbers of normal cells. We still have a long way to go to fully understand the implications of these new findings, but as cancer researchers, we can't underestimate the importance of studying healthy tissue." Early Onset of Menopause Correlates with Shorter Life Expectancy Aging is a phenomenon affecting all organs and systems throughout the body, driven by rising levels of molecular damage. The v...

Abstract Frontal fibrosing alopecia (FFA) is a primary patterned cicatricial alopecia with a complicated pathogenesis yet to be fully understood. FFA appears to be increasing in incidence worldwide, especially in the last decade. In order to consider current treatment options, we reviewed current evidence for its pathogenesis comprising immune-mediated, genetic, hormonal and environmental factors. Th1-mediated inflammation with collapse of hair follicle immune privilege and bulge epithelial stem cell destruction, peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma (PPAR-γ) depletion and epithelial-mesenchymal t...

In conclusion, FSH may have a direct action on bone health independent of oestrogen by enhancing bone resorption. Its effects may be attenuated in the presence of overt sex hormone deficiency. More longitudinal studies pertaining to the effects of FSH on bone health, especially on fracture risk, should be conducted to validate this speculation. PMID: 30275766 [PubMed - in process]

Abstract Bone marrow adipocytes (BMA-) constitute an original and heterogeneous fat depot whose development appears interlinked with bone status throughout life. The gradual replacement of the haematopoietic tissue by BMA arises in a well-ordered way during childhood and adolescence concomitantly to bone growth and continues at a slower rate throughout the adult life. Importantly, BM adiposity quantity is found well associated with bone mineral density (BMD) loss at different skeletal sites in primary osteoporosis such as in ageing or menopause but also in secondary osteoporosis consecutive to anorexia nervosa. Si...

Abstract Osteoporosis is a bone degenerative disease characterized by a decrease in bone strength and an alteration in the osseous micro-architecture causing an increase in the risk of fractures. These diseases usually happen in post-menopausal women and elderly men. The most common treatment involves anti-resorptive agent drugs. However, the inhibition of bone resorption alone is not adequate for recovery in patients at the severe stage of osteoporosis who already have a fracture. Therefore, the combination of utilizing osteoblast micro mimetic scaffold in cultivation with the stimulation of osteoblastic differen...

Conclusions: We demonstrated for the first time that AT pO2 is higher in ABD than FEM subcutaneous AT in overweight/obese women, partly due to a lower oxygen consumption rate in ABD adipocytes. Moreover, low physiological pO2 decreased pro-inflammatory gene expression and improved the metabolic phenotype in differentiated human adipocytes, whereas more heterogeneous effects on adipokine secretion were found.

We presently forget 98% of everything we experience. That will go away in favor of perfect, controllable, configurable memory. Skills and knowledge will become commodities that can be purchased and installed. We will be able to feel exactly as we wish to feel at any given time. How we perceive the world will be mutable and subject to choice. How we think, the very fundamental basis of the mind, will also be mutable and subject to choice. We will merge with our machines, as Kurzweil puts it. The boundary between mind and computing device, between the individual and his or her tools, will blur. Over the course of the ...
