Protective role of estrogens (E2) against cardiovascular disease has been appreciated for many years until the equivocal results of cardiovascular outcomes in clinical trials on hormone replacement therapy were reported. Although new ongoing trials aim to resolve these discrepancies, it is obvious that cardiovascular effects of E(2) are complex and diverse. To understand further the cardiovascular effects of E(2), the detailed knowledge on the specific role of both classical estrogen receptor… CONTINUE READING
