Published Why does puberty trigger us to stop growing? (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Research on fruit flies has implications for this poorly understood process in humans.
Published Anti-rheumatic drugs could prevent thyroid disease (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Anti-rheumatic drugs used for rheumatoid arthritis might prevent the development of autoimmune thyroid disease, according to a new observational study.
Published Excessive fluid consumption: Habit or hormonal disorder? (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
People who drink more than three liters of fluid a day may be suffering from a rare hormone deficiency. For many, however, it is just a harmless habit. Failing to differentiate the two correctly can be fatal, so researchers have been investigating what kind of test delivers a reliable diagnosis.
Published Certain per- and polyfluoroalkyl 'forever chemicals' identified as potential risk factor for thyroid cancer (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Researchers have discovered a link between certain per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) and an increased risk for thyroid cancer.
Published First-of-its kind hormone replacement treatment shows promise in patient trials (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
A new kind of hormone replacement therapy that more closely replicates the natural circadian and ultradian rhythms of our hormones has shown to improve symptoms in patients with adrenal conditions.
Published Promising new options for treating aggressive prostate cancer (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Investigators have identified two promising new treatment options for men with recurrent prostate cancer -- both of which helped patients live longer without their disease progressing than the current standard treatment. 'If these treatments are approved by the Food and Drug Administration, our results will be practice changing,' said Stephen Freedland, MD, associate director for Training and Education and the Warschaw, Robertson, Law Families Chair in Prostate Cancer at Cedars-Sinai, and lead author of the study. 'In the study, both of these new options improved metastasis-free survival while preserving quality of life.'
Published Is a longer reproductive lifespan good for your brain? (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
People with a higher cumulative estrogen exposure throughout their life may have a lower risk of cerebral small vessel disease, according to a new study.
Published Women with PCOS on keto diet may see improvements in fertility (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
The ketogenic (keto) diet may lower testosterone levels in women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), according to a new article.
Published Estrogen-negative cancers respond to anti-estrogenic therapies (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Anti-estrogenic therapies can suppress the growth of cancer that does not express estrogen receptors; when combined with immune checkpoint inhibitor therapies, they halt tumor progression in mice models.
Published Cause of sleep disturbance in cardiac disease identified: Ganglia play previously unrecognized role (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Around one third of people with heart disease suffer from sleep problems. A team now shows that heart diseases affect the production of the sleep hormone melatonin in the pineal gland. The link between the two organs is a ganglion in the neck region. The study demonstrates a previously unknown role of ganglia and points to possible treatments.
Published Birth-control pills affect the body's ability to regulate stress, study suggests (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
A new study suggests that birth-control pills negatively impact women's stress response.
Published Wearable monitor detects stress hormone levels across a full 24-hour day (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Early warning signs of diseases caused by dysfunctional levels of stress hormones could be spotted more easily thanks to a new wearable device developed by researchers.
Published Exposure to dioxins can worsen thyroid function (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Exposure to dioxins can negatively impact thyroid function, according to a study presented Thursday at ENDO 2023, the Endocrine Society's annual meeting in Chicago, Ill.
Published Researchers create artificial enzyme for fast detection of disease-related hormone in sweat (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Researchers have developed a handheld sensor that tests perspiration for cortisol and provides results in eight minutes, a key advance in monitoring a hormone whose levels are a marker for many illnesses including various cancers.
Published Ten-minute scan enables detection and cure of the commonest cause of high blood pressure (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Doctors have used a new type of CT scan to light up tiny nodules in a hormone gland and cure high blood pressure by their removal. The nodules are discovered in one-in-twenty people with high blood pressure.
Published New oral compound may help prevent and treat osteoporosis, researchers find (via sciencedaily.com)
Researchers identified an oral compound that influences components of the parathyroid hormone signaling pathway to increase bone formation and bone mass in mice.
Published Recreating the adrenal gland in a petri dish (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
A team coaxed stem cells to take on the characteristics and functions of a human adrenal gland, progress that could lead to new therapies for adrenal insufficiencies and a deeper understanding of the genetics of such disorders.
Published Hormone discovery could predict long term health of men (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Researchers have discovered the vital role of a hormone, that develops in men during puberty, in providing an early prediction of whether they could develop certain diseases in later life.
Published New drug can successfully treat patients typically resistant to high blood pressure treatment (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
A new drug called Baxdrostat has been shown to significantly reduce high blood pressure (hypertension) in patients who may not respond to current treatments for the condition, according to results from a phase II trial.
Published The beta cell whisperer gene (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Diabetes, which affects millions of people worldwide, develops when the body either generates insufficient amounts of the hormone insulin -- a hormone that maintains healthy blood sugar -- or when the body cannot effectively use the insulin it produces. When the number of beta cells is too low or they aren't functioning properly, there isn't enough insulin getting released. Beta cells communicate with each other to secrete insulin in a coordinated manner. Scientists now show that the gene Wnt4 in beta cells enables them to sense glucose and release the hormone insulin that enables other cells in the body to store glucose. These insights could help to create replacement beta cells for diabetes therapy in the future.
