Spironolactone and XPB: An Old Drug with a New Molecular Target.

Biomolecules 2020 May 13;10(5). Epub 2020 May 13.

Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology, Wright State University Boonshoft School of Medicine, Dayton, OH 45435, USA.

Spironolactone (SP) is commonly used for the treatment of heart failure, hypertension, and complications of cirrhosis by antagonizing the mineralocorticoid receptor. However, SP also antagonizes the androgen receptor, and thus SP has also been shown to be effective in the treatment of acne, hair loss, and hirsutism in women. Interestingly, recent drug repurposing screens have identified new and diverse functions for SP as a simulator of tumor immunosurveillance and as an inhibitor of DNA repair and viral infection.

Clinical Implications of Polycystic Ovary Syndrome in Adolescents.

Nurs Womens Health 2020 Apr;24(2):115-126

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is the most common endocrinopathy, affecting as many as 5% to 20% of women of reproductive age, depending on the diagnostic criteria applied. Features of PCOS include physiologic anovulation, hyperandrogenism, elevated luteinizing hormone, and increased gonadotropin-releasing hormone pulse frequency, which often manifest physically as acne and hirsutism. The clinical presentation of PCOS often mimics normal pubertal physiologic development, which may delay diagnosis and treatment of the condition in adolescent girls. Read More

Expanding the phenotypic and genotypic spectrum of Wiedemann-Steiner syndrome: First patient from India.

Am J Med Genet A 2020 May 3;182(5):953-956. Epub 2020 Mar 3.

Institute of Medical Genetics and Genomics, Sir Ganga Ram Hospital, New Delhi, India.

Wiedemann-Steiner syndrome (WWS) is a rare disorder characterized by hypotonia, postnatal growth restriction, striking facial dysmorphism, and hirsutism. It is caused by heterozygous pathogenic variants in KMT2A. This gene has an established role in histone methylation, which explains the overlap of WWS with syndromes caused by genes involved in chromatin remodeling. Read More

Is There Any Association Between Hirsutism and Serum Zinc Levels in Adolescents?

Biol Trace Elem Res 2020 Mar 2. Epub 2020 Mar 2.

Department of Pediatrics, Division of Adolescent Medicine, Hacettepe University Medical School, 06610, Ankara, Turkey.

Zinc has shown to have an anti-androgenic effect through 5 alpha-reductase enzyme activity inhibition in skin. However, there are contradicting findings concerning the effect of zinc on hirsutism mainly from studies including adult women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). The aim of our study was to investigate the association between serum zinc levels and hirsutism in adolescents. Read More

Association between visceral adiposity index, hirsutism and cardiometabolic risk factors in women with polycystic ovarian syndrome: A cross-sectional study

Ceylon Med J 2019 Sep;64(3):111-117

University of Peradeniya,

Introduction: Visceral adiposity index (VAI) is a mathematical index derived from the body mass index (BMI), waist circumference (WC), serum fasting triglyceride (TG) and high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C). It reflects visceral adipocyte dysfunction (VAD) and is associated with cardiometabolic risk. Women with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) have adipocyte dysfunction, which is associated with metabolic disorders. Read More

Continuum of Symptoms in Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS): Links with Sexual Behavior and Unrestricted Sociosexuality.

J Sex Res 2020 Feb 20:1-13. Epub 2020 Feb 20.

Department of Psychology, Lakehead University.

Symptoms of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) exist on a continuum, are associated with hyperandrogenism, and have fertility implications. The present study investigated the relationship between PCOS symptoms and sociosexuality in young women with a continuum of symptoms ranging from none to clinical levels. Given that unrestricted sociosexuality, or one's orientation toward uncommitted sexual activity, is associated with hyperandrogenism, we hypothesized that women experiencing more symptoms of PCOS, and a greater likelihood of androgen excess, would have a more unrestricted sociosexual orientation.
