BackgroundOvarian cancer is the most lethal of all gynecologic malignancies. The relationship between sexual steroids receptors and ovarian cancer progression has been largely evaluated. The presence of progesterone receptors has been associated with an increase of a disease-free period and overall survival in patients with ovarian carcinoma. In the present study, primary cultures of ovarian carcinoma obtained from 35 patients diagnosed with epithelial ovarian cancer were evaluated for cell… 
Spotlight on Oncologic Outcomes and Prognostic Factors of Pure Endometrioid Ovarian Carcinoma.
Expression of hormone receptors predicts survival and platinum sensitivity of high-grade serous ovarian cancer
TLDR
AR, ER, and PR might be feasible prognostic biomarkers for HGSOC by immunohistochemical analysis, and expression of hormone receptors predicts survival and platinum sensitivity of H GSOC.
Hormone therapy for ovarian cancer: Emphasis on mechanisms and applications
TLDR
The role of hormones (GnRH, gonadotropins, androgens, estrogens and progestins) and their receptors in OC tumorigenesis, and hormonal therapy in OC treatment is discussed and summarized.
Pan-Cancer Prognostic Role and Targeting Potential of the Estrogen-Progesterone Axis
TLDR
ESR1, ESR2, and PGR are potential prognostic markers and therapeutic targets, as well as important factors for the prediction, evaluation, and individualized treatment in several cancer types.
Endometriosis and Endometriosis-Associated Ovarian Cancer (EAOC).
TLDR
The endometrioid tissue lining may also react by epithelial atypical hyperplasia and even neoplasia, in a manner somehow similar to that in the uterine cavity and under the same hormonal influences.
Highly Expressed Progesterone Receptor B Isoform Increases Platinum Sensitivity and Survival of Ovarian High-Grade Serous Carcinoma
TLDR
It is found that strong progesterone receptor-B expression was associated with better platinum sensitivity and better survival in high-grade serous ovarian cancer patients, and the value of adding progester one in the treatment of ovarian HGSC should be further investigated.
A Review of the Clinical Characteristics and Novel Molecular Subtypes of Endometrioid Ovarian Cancer
TLDR
A literature review aims to compile the potential mechanisms of endometrioid ovarian cancer, molecular characteristics, and molecular pathological types that could potentially play a role in the prediction of prognosis, and the novel therapeutic strategies, providing some guidance for the stratified management of ovarian cancer.
Expression of metalloproteinases MMP-2 and MMP-9 is associated to the presence of androgen receptor in epithelial ovarian tumors
TLDR
It is demonstrated that MMP-2 located in the epithelium and the stroma are independent prognostic biomarkers for overall survival in epithelial ovarian tumors.

Sexual steroid hormone receptors profiles of ovarian carcinoma in Mexican women
TLDR
The relationship of the receptor profile with the proliferation index in the tumor epithelium shows that the expression of only ER is associated to a reduced proliferationIndex in endometrioid carcinoma, which could help characterize ovarian carcinoma.

Correlation between estrogen receptor expression and prognosis in epithelial ovarian cancer: a meta-analysis.
TLDR
Estrogen receptor, especially estrogen receptor α, was associated with an improved overall survival in epithelial ovarian cancer and may be a promising prognostic factor in epithelium ovarian cancer patients.
Correlation between estrogen receptor expression and prognosis in epithelial ovarian cancer: a meta-analysis
TLDR
Estrogen receptor, especially estrogen receptor α, was associated with an improved overall survival in epithelial ovarian cancer and may be a promising prognostic factor in epithelium ovarian cancer patients.
Steroid hormone receptor expression in ovarian cancer: progesterone receptor B as prognostic marker for patient survival
TLDR
ER-α/-β and PR-A/-B are frequently expressed in OC with a certain variability relating to histological subtype, grade and stage, and may be useful targets for a more individualized OC therapy.
High levels of pretreatment CA125 are associated to improved survival in high grade serous ovarian carcinoma
TLDR
Clinical stage associated with pretreatment absolute values of CA125 should be considered as prognostic factor in EOC patients, and values ofCA125 higher than 500 U/mL in high grade serous carcinoma with FIGO stage III resulted in an enhanced survival rate of the patients.
Expression of gonadotropin receptor and growth responses to key reproductive hormones in normal and malignant human ovarian surface epithelial cells.
TLDR
Comparisons of cell growth responses to gonadotropins and sex steroids in primary cultures of human OSE cells with those observed in immortalized, nontumorigenic HOSE cells and in OCa cell lines support the hypothesis that reproductive states associated with rising levels of gonadotropic hormone, estrogen, and/or androgen promote cell proliferation in the normal OSE, which favors neoplastic transformation.
Effect of estradiol on the expression of angiogenic factors in epithelial ovarian cancer.
TLDR
Estradiol has a positive effect on pro-angiogenic factors such as NGF and VEGF expression in EOC, probably through the activation of ERα; generating a positive loop induced by NGF increasing pERα levels in epithelial ovarian cells.
