BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVE Estrogen sulfotransferase (EST) is an enzyme which metabolizes estrogen into inactive estrogen sulphate. Bridging integrator protein-1 (BIN1) is a novel c-myc-interacting protein with the features of tumor suppressor. EST and BIN1 may be protective in tumorigenesis. This study was to detect the gene expression of EST and BIN1 in(More)
Estrogen replacement therapy (ERT) is one of the most challenging issues women and their physicians have to face. Clinical and epidemiological studies have provided conflicting data regarding the cardiovascular benefit versus risk in women using ERT. Although ERT may improve several risk factors of coronary heart disease such as favorable changes in lipid(More)
In this work, we have successfully synthesized a new family of chiral Schiff base–phosphine ligands derived from chiral binaphthol (BINOL) and chiral primary amine. The controllable synthesis of a novel hexadentate and tetradentate N,O,P ligand that contains both axial and sp3-central chirality from axial BINOL and sp3-central primary amine led to the(More)
This study was designed to evaluate the effects of a novel phytoestrogen, α-zearalanol (α-ZAL), and estradiol benzoate (B-E₂), on c-myc, c-fos, and EGFR expression in normal human breast tissues implanted into nude mice. A xenograft-model, pieces of normal human breast tissue implanted subcutaneously into 9-10-week-old athymic nude mice, was established.(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the effects of raloxifene hydrochloride (RLX) on bone mineral density (BMD), bone metabolism markers and serum lipids in healthy postmenopausal women in Beijing. METHODS A multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study was conducted in a total of 204 healthy postmenopausal women (age 59.5 +/- 5.0 years and weight(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the effects of phytoestrogen alpha-zearalanol (alpha-ZAL) on normal human breast. METHODS Ten specimens of normal human breast tissues were subcutaneously implanted into 30 athymic nude mice aged 9-10 weeks, one for 3 mice. These mice were then randomly divided into three groups: control group (without hormone treatment, n = 10), 1(More)
Remote stereocontrol through conformational transmission along a carbon chain is highly important in synthetic systems and molecular architectures. In this work, the interactional reactivity between a remote silicon-based bulky group and an O-/N-containing functional group has been revealed and determined by lateral lithiation-substitution, desilylation, as(More)
OBJECTIVE To identify the safety and efficacy of individualized vaginal surgery for anterior pelvic organ prolapse (POP) in elderly women so as to provide a clinical basis for studies on improving life quality by treatment in elderly women. METHODS The individuation group consisted of 90 patients with a diagnosis of anterior POP. All over 60 years old,(More)
OBJECTIVE To prospectively explore the techniques, feasibility and safety of modified vaginal hysterectomy for large uterus. METHODS A total of 158 patients undergoing hysterectomy at Beijing Hospital from January 2008 to December 2010 were divided into three groups: 12-16 gestational weeks large uterus for vaginal hysterectomy (n = 65, group 1), 12-16(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the proliferating effect of estradiol benzoate on normal human breast tissue. METHODS Three specimens of normal human breast tissue were implanted into nine 9-10-week-old intact female athymic nude mice which were randomly divided into group A, B and C. Each specimen was divided into three parts, and each part was implanted into(More)
