Decreased serum testosterone levels associated with 17β-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase activity in 7-year-old children from a dioxin-exposed area of Vietnam.

Sci Total Environ 2021 Mar 30;783:146701. Epub 2021 Mar 30.

Faculty of Health Sciences, Institute of Medical, Pharmaceutical and Health Sciences, Kanazawa University, Japan.

Since 2008, we have conducted epidemiological cohort studies on the relationship between dioxin exposure and disruption with children in the area sprayed with defoliants during the Vietnam War. In a long-term survey of children through the age of five, we observed androgen disruption due to decreased dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) and testosterone levels. In this study of 7-year-old, we separately elucidated androgen disruption for boys and girls, and discussed with respect to hormone disruption with sex differences on the steroid hormone biosynthesis process.

DNA repair in primordial follicle oocytes following cisplatin treatment.

J Assist Reprod Genet 2021 Apr 16. Epub 2021 Apr 16.

Ovarian Biology Laboratory, Monash Biomedicine Discovery Institute, Department of Anatomy and Developmental Biology, Monash University, Clayton, Victoria, 3800, Australia.

Purpose: Genotoxic chemotherapy and radiotherapy can cause DNA double stranded breaks (DSBs) in primordial follicle (PMF) oocytes, which then undergo apoptosis. The development of effective new fertility preservation agents has been hampered, in part, by a limited understanding of DNA repair in PMF oocytes. This study investigated the induction of classical DSB repair pathways in the follicles of wild type (WT) and apoptosis-deficient Puma mice in response to DSBs caused by the chemotherapy agent cisplatin.

Cancer Treatment-Induced Bone Loss (CTIBL): State of the Art and Proper Management in Breast Cancer Patients on Endocrine Therapy.

Curr Treat Options Oncol 2021 Apr 16;22(5):45. Epub 2021 Apr 16.

Medical Oncology, Department of Precision Medicine, School of Medicine, "Luigi Vanvitelli" University of Campania, 80131, Naples, Italy.

Opinion Statement: About 70-80% of early breast cancer (BC) patients receive adjuvant endocrine therapy (ET) for at least 5 years. ET includes in the majority of cases the use of aromatase inhibitors, as upfront or switch strategy, that lead to impaired bone health. Given the high incidence and also the high prevalence of BC, cancer treatment-induced bone loss (CTIBL) represents the most common long-term adverse event experimented by patients with hormone receptor positive tumours.

Hum Reprod 2021 Apr 16. Epub 2021 Apr 16.

Epidemiology Branch, Division of Intramural Population Health Research, Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, MD, USA.

Study Question: Are insufficient 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D) concentrations, and other markers of vitamin D metabolism, associated with premenstrual symptoms in healthy women with regular menstrual cycles?

Summary Answer: 25(OH)D insufficiency was associated with specific physical premenstrual symptoms, while no associations were observed with psychological symptoms or with other markers of vitamin D metabolism.

What Is Known Already: Prior studies evaluating vitamin D and premenstrual symptoms have yielded mixed results, and it is unknown whether 25(OH)D insufficiency and other markers of vitamin D metabolism are associated with premenstrual symptoms.

Study Design, Size, Duration: We used two cohorts of women with regular menstrual cycles; 1191 women aged 18-40 years in EAGeR (cross-sectional analysis of a prospective cohort within a randomized trial) and 76 women aged 18-44 years in BioCycle (prospective cohort). Read More

Precision oncology in metastatic colorectal cancer - from biology to medicine.

Nat Rev Clin Oncol 2021 Apr 16. Epub 2021 Apr 16.

Department of Oncology, University of Torino, Candiolo, Italy.

Remarkable progress has been made in the development of biomarker-driven targeted therapies for patients with multiple cancer types, including melanoma, breast and lung tumours, although precision oncology for patients with colorectal cancer (CRC) continues to lag behind. Nonetheless, the availability of patient-derived CRC models coupled with in vitro and in vivo pharmacological and functional analyses over the past decade has finally led to advances in the field. Gene-specific alterations are not the only determinants that can successfully direct the use of targeted therapy. Read More
