The health controversies of parabens.

The health controversies of parabens. Skin Therapy Lett. 2013 Feb;18(2):5-7 Authors: Kirchhof MG, de Gannes GC Abstract Parabens are preservatives used in a variety of personal care, cosmetic, pharmaceutical and food products. Studies have confirmed the ubiquitous presence of parabens, with levels detected in wastewater, rivers, soil and house dust. Parabens have also been detected in human tissues and bodily fluids, but it is the discovery of these chemical compounds in the breast tissue of patients with breast cancer that has raised public concern over their use. It is hypothesized that the estrogenic properties of parabens may play a role in breast cancer development. However, studies investigating the health effects of parabens are conflicting. At this point, there is an insufficient amount of data suggesting serious consequences from paraben use and exposure to warrant drastic avoidance measures or government regulations.

OBJECTIVES: Aromatase inhibitors are the first-choice drugs for the treatment of hormone sensitive breast cancer. However, in addition to the scarcity of studies, there are controversies about their effects on vaginal epithelial cell proliferation in rats, especially those in persistent estrus. METHODS: To investigate vaginal epithelial cell proliferation by Ki-67 antigen expression, persistent estrus was induced in 42 randomly selected rats. These rats were randomly divided into 2 groups: group I (control, n=21), which received 0.1 mL of propylene glycol (vehicle) daily, and group II (experimental, n=21), which received 0...

17‑AAG synergizes with Belinostat to exhibit a negative effect on the proliferation and invasion of MDA‑MB‑231 breast cancer cells. Oncol Rep. 2020 Mar 26;: Authors: Zuo Y, Xu H, Chen Z, Xiong F, Zhang B, Chen K, Jiang H, Luo C, Zhang H Abstract Breast cancer is one of the most common malignancies that threaten the health of women. Although there are a few chemotherapies for the clinical treatment of breast cancer, these therapies are faced with the problems of drug‑resistance and metastasis. Drug combination can help to reduce the adverse side effects of chemotherapies using single drugs, and ...

Authors: Gao X, Bao H, Liu L, Zhu W, Zhang L, Yue L Abstract Abnormal protein acetylation and succinylation in lysine residues can cause the initiation and development of numerous different types of tumors. However, to the best of our knowledge, there is currently a lack of systematic investigation in breast cancer. Using proteomic techniques, the present study systematically investigated the two modifications of all proteins in invasive ductal carcinoma tissues to identify potential targets. The results revealed significantly higher modification levels for the majority of proteins in breast cancer tissue when comp...

Cannabidiolic acid dampens the expression of cyclooxygenase-2 in MDA-MB-231 breast cancer cells: Possible implication of the peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor β/δ abrogation. J Toxicol Sci. 2020;45(4):227-236 Authors: Hirao-Suzuki M, Takeda S, Koga T, Takiguchi M, Toda A Abstract A growing body of experimental evidence strongly suggests that cannabidiolic acid (CBDA), a major component of the fiber-type cannabis plant, exerts a variety of biological activities. We have reported that CBDA can abrogate cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) expression and its enzymatic activity. It is established t...

Abstract Breast cancer is the most frequent in women, resulting in fatigue and depressive symptoms as consequence of treatment, but physical activity can help in this process. The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between fatigue, depressive symptoms and practice of physical activity of women with breast cancer during treatment or after cancer treatment. This is a cross-sectional study with 179 women (56.89 ± 9.4 years) from the Oncology Research Center - CEPON, using questionnaire on general and clinical information, fatigue (Piper Fatigue Scale) depressive symptoms (Beck Depression Inventory) a...

Authors: Montemurro F, Nuzzolese I, Ponzone R Abstract Introduction: The administration of chemotherapy before (neoadjuvant), rather than after surgery (adjuvant) in early breast cancer has been considered an optional strategy for patients with operable breast cancer. We reviewed this concept considering recent results in the field.Areas covered: Herein, the authors cover neoadjuvant chemotherapy with or without biologics in triple-negative and HER2-positive operable breast cancer with a focus on rates of complete pathological remission (pCR) in the breast and axilla. The impact of the CREATE X and KATERINE randomi...
