Classification and pharmacology of progestins.
TLDR
Besides the natural progestin, progesterone, there are different classes of progestins, such as retroprogesterone, which need to be metabolized to become active compounds and have to be taken into account when medical treatment is considered. Expand
Time course of effects of testosterone administration on sexual arousal in women.
TLDR
There is a time lag in the effect of sublingually administered testosterone on genital arousal in women, and a consecutive increase in vaginal arousal might cause higher genital sensations and sexual lust. Expand
Endogenous sex hormones in men aged 40-80 years.
TLDR
It can be concluded that general health status modified the effect between sex hormones and age, and the important determinants of sex hormones were age, BMI, waist circumference, smoking, general healthstatus and physical activity. Expand
Relationships between sex hormones assessed in amniotic fluid, and maternal and umbilical cord serum: What is the best source of information to investigate the effects of fetal hormonal exposure?
TLDR
Amniotic fluid seems to be the best candidate to investigate the effects of early fetal androgen exposure and high correlations were found for the same hormones between the samples of maternal serum in the 2nd and the 3rd trimester. Expand
Urinary phytoestrogens and postmenopausal breast cancer risk.
TLDR
The previously reported protective effects of genistein and enterolactone on breast cancer risk in the postmenopausal population of Dutch women were not able to detect and such an effect may be smaller than expected and/or limited to specific subgroups of the population. Expand
The behaviour of the plasma free testosterone/cortisol ratio during a season of elite rowing training.
TLDR
It remains to be demonstrated that periods of prolonged decreases in the level of the FTCR may finally lead to a situation of overstrain or overtraining in an athlete. Expand
Body fat mass, body fat distribution, and plasma hormones in early puberty in females.
TLDR
A reciprocal relationship among body fat distribution, plasma sex hormone levels, and availability of sex steroids in early female puberty is suggested. Expand
Endogenous concentration and subcellular distribution of estrogens in normal and malignant human breast tissue.
TLDR
It is concluded that the mechanism of action of estradiol via its receptor, a mechanism mainly based on studies in animal uterine tissue, applies only qualitatively to human breast cancer tissue. Expand
Spontaneous hypercortisolism without Cushing's syndrome.
TLDR
A very high cortisol production rate (CPR) with elevated plasma ACTH was found in a hypertensive, hypokalemic, but otherwise healthy male patient, and one of the three children showed hypertension and hypercortisolism. Expand
Endogenous sex hormones and cardiovascular disease in men.
TLDR
The studies reviewed in this article suggest that circulating endogenous sex hormones and estrogens have a neutral or beneficial effect on cardiovascular disease in men. Expand
