The incidence of cardiovascular disease is lower in women than in men, but is raised in men with prostatic cancer treated with estrogens. Changes of the plasma lipoproteins are related to the development of ischaemic cardiovascular disease and can be brought about by hormonal treatment. We have therefore studied plasma lipoproteins during estrogen treatment and after orchidectomy. 16 patients with prostatic carcinoma were treated with ethinyl estradiol daily by mouth and polyestradiol phosphate… CONTINUE READING
