Gene activity is influenced by steroid hormonesScientists at the University of Bristol and the National Cancer Institute (NCI), USA have revealed that the manner in which gene expression takes place in rodents is affected by intermittent signaling by steroid hormones.

This finding is considered to have critical implications to understand how steroids work and how they can assist in opening up novel avenues for development of new therapies.

The research appeared online and appeared in the September 2009 issue of Nature Cell Biology.

Dutch researchers find stress delays pubertyDevelopment of genital organs of carp can be delayed when subjected to stress in such a manner that puberty is delayed, according to NWO research at Utrecht University. It is believed that cortisol, the stress hormone, plays an important role in delaying puberty.

It was assumed by the researchers that the stress hormone is responsibly for causing delays in puberty.

The finding is expected to have implications for medical practitioners in this segment.

Prostate cancer progression can speed with hormonal nutritional supplementsAccording to a recent research, progression of prostate cancer and reduction in efficacy of anti-cancer drugs can be stimulated by hormonal components in over-the-counter dietary supplements.

This discovery by researchers at UT Southwestern Medical Center appeared in an issue of Clinical Cancer Research and reaffirmed that people visiting the doctors’ offices must inform them about any herbal or hormonal dietary supplements they are taking or considering taking.

It was recommended by the researchers that documentation of supplement use becomes part of routine health assessment for all patients, especially cancer patients.

Steroid hormones found affecting activity of genesAccording to a research that has major implications for understanding how steroids work and can open novel avenues for new therapies, scientists at the University of Bristol and the National Cancer Institute (NCI), USA have found that intermittent signaling by steroid hormones may affect the way genes are expressed in rodents.

The findings were published online and appeared in the September 2009 issue of Nature Cell Biology.

Professor Stafford Lightman, head of the Henry Wellcome Laboratories for Integrative Neuroscience and Endocrinology at the University of Bristol, said the results suggest that the pattern of hormone release is critical for good health besides offering a novel concept for new drug design.

Plants capable of making progesteroneScientists have reported the first discovery of the female sex hormone, progesterone, in a plant. This finding is considered by many as an overturn from conventional wisdom.

The discovery was reported in the American Chemical Society’s Journal of Natural Products, a monthly publication.

The involved researchers made use of two powerful laboratory techniques, nuclear magnetic resonance and mass spectroscopy, for detecting progesterone in leaves of the Common Walnut, or English walnut, tree.

osteoporosisGlucocorticoid-induced osteoporosis (OP) is now treatable with Teriparatide, which is a synthetic form of the human parathyroid hormone, according to a recent study.

It was found by the researchers that patients with glucocorticoid-induced osteoporosis and treated with teriparatide for a period of 36 months had a significant increase in BMD (bone mineral density) and fewer new vertebral fractures than those treated with alendronate.

The findings of this study were published in the November issue of Arthritis & Rheumatism, a journal of the American College of Rheumatology (ACR).

Gene activity affected by steroid hormonesAs per a research by scientists at the University of Bristol and the National Cancer Institute (NCI), USA, gene activity can be affected via intermittent signaling by steroid hormones.

These findings were published online and appeared in the September 2009 issue of Nature Cell Biology.

It is believed that this finding would have major implications to ascertain how steroids work besides opening novel avenues to new therapies.

It is considered by members of the medical fraternity that such studies would help in defining the potential role of ultradian application of glucocorticoid receptor therapy to a significant extent.

Possible link between diabetes, atherosclerosis, and psoriasisAccording to findings of a recent study that was published in the November issue of Arthritis & Rheumatism, a journal of the American College of Rheumatology (ACR), glucocorticoid-induced osteoporosis (OP) is easily treatable with Teriparatide, a synthetic form of the human parathyroid hormone.

Glucocorticoids are steroid hormones, which are produced naturally in the body and can be termed as synthetically created compounds meant for the purpose of reducing inflammation. These steroid drugs are used for controlling inflammation in patients suffering with ailments such as rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, asthma, and Crohn’s disease.

Kenneth Saag, M.D., from the University of Alabama, led this 36-month, randomized, double-blind, controlled trial, and recommended that teriparatide is an effective treatment option for patients with steroid-induced OA.
