Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTAdjuvant endocrine therapy (ET) is the cornerstone of treatment for hormone-receptor positive breast cancer. Recently, ET is increasingly combined with "cyclin-dependent kinases 4 and 6'' (CDK4/6) inhibitors. Given the importance of estrogens in neural processes and the role of cyclin D in hippocampal cell proliferation, it is plausible that these therapies affect cognition, but studies on these potential cognitive effects are sparse. In this review, we summarize existing knowledge on the cognitive eff...

Ther Umsch. 2021;78(8):441-446. doi: 10.1024/0040-5930/a001295.ABSTRACTEndometriosis and Menopause Abstract. Endometriosis is supposed to affect only women in their reproductive years, but endometriotic lesions can reactivate in menopause and cause significant complaints in these patients. Altered needs and co-morbidities of the women request a different approach in therapy than in the younger ages. Reduction in chronic pain on the one hand and alleviation of climacteric symptoms, like hot-flushes and vaginal dryness, on the other hand, are main concerns to the physician in charge. Consequently, keeping the balance between...

Estradiol (E2) and progesterone (P) have potent effects on immune function in the human uterine endometrium which is essential for creating an environment conducive for successful reproduction. Type III/lambda (λ) interferons (IFN) are implicated in immune defense of the placenta against viral pathogens, which occurs against the backdrop of high E2 and P levels. However, the effect of E2 and P in modulating the expression and function of IFNλ1 in the non-pregnant human uterine endometrium is unknown. We generated purified in vitro cultures of human uterine epithelial cells and stromal fibroblast cells recover...
