The effect of pregnancy hormone estriol (E3) on innate and adaptive immunity cells functions in patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) in comparison with healthy donors (HD) was studied. E3 inhibited phagocytic activity of neutrophils and enhanced monocytes IDO activity. Treg percentage increased and number of Th17 and iNKT cells decreased under E3 influence. At the same time, E3 stimulated production of IL-10 and inhibited secretion of IL-17. The hormonal effects were realized on the cells of both HD and MS patients.

Biological sex-related factors are associated with the risk of developing multiple sclerosis (MS), with contemporary incident cases occurring among female individuals at a 3-fold higher rate than among male individuals. Although specific genes on the X chromosome may play a modest role in MS susceptibility and severity, reproductive factors, including sex steroid hormone production and pregnancy, have long been recognized to alter the disease course in MS. Onset of pediatric MS becomes prominent at approximately age 13 years, just after children enter puberty. Girls typically present at least 2 years after menarche, and th...
