    This article presents a biosocial model of women's gendered behavior. Since most biologists do not use the word gender, researchers use the term, sex dimorphism. This theory of sex dimorphism varies in its details by species, but its overall outline is that, sex dimorphism in behavior is...

    The article discusses the use of docetaxel in the treatment of hormone-refractory prostate cancer. It states that docetaxel chemotherapy is the standard therapy for patients who are not receiving androgen deprivation therapy. It mentions that the challenge lies in improving results with...

  • Effect of Aloe barbadensis Mill. formulation on Letrozole induced polycystic ovarian syndrome rat model. Maharjan, Radha; Nagar, Padamnabhi S.; Nampoothiri, Laxmipriya // Journal of Ayurveda & Integrative Medicine;2010, Vol. 1 Issue 4, p273 

    This is a preliminary study that explores the efficacy of Aloe vera gel formulation as a possible therapeutic agent in the prevention and management of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). PCOS is recognized as the most common endocrinopathy of women. Increased androgen synthesis, disrupted...

  • Gynaecomastia. Dixon, J. M. // Update;6/17/2004, Vol. 68 Issue 11, p592 

    Gynaecomastia is a benign condition characterised by a diffuse enlargement of the male breast. The origin of gynaecomastia lies in an imbalance between competing androgenic and oestrogenic hormones, which results in a bimodal peak incidence in adolescence and the elderly. True gynaecomastia can...

  • Risk of Inflammatory Bowel Disease with Oral Contraceptives and Menopausal Hormone Therapy: Current Evidence and Future Directions. Khalili, Hamed // Drug Safety;Mar2016, Vol. 39 Issue 3, p193 

    Crohn's disease (CD) and ulcerative colitis (UC), collectively known as inflammatory bowel diseases, are archetypical inflammatory disorders of the gastrointestinal tract with rising incidence worldwide. Although the role of genetic factors in disease development has been highlighted by...

  • Androgen Receptor Distribution, PAS and Alcyan Blue Reaction in the Vomeronasal Organ and the Nasal Septum Mucosa of the Developing Male Rat. Nüñez^Chichet, M. E.; Genovese, P.; Bielli, A. // International Journal of Morphology;2007, Vol. 25 Issue 3, p579 

    The vomeronasal organ (VNO) is a tubular chemoreceptory organ which detects environmental pheromones and is essential for mammalian normal reproductive activity. A sensitive chemoreceptory neuroepithelium lines the concave VNO wall and the opposite, convex wall is lined by a seudostratified,...

  • Induction of Paclitaxel Resistance by ERα Mediated Prohibitin Mitochondrial-Nuclear Shuttling. Dong, Pei; Jiang, Lijuan; Liu, Jianye; Wu, Zhiming; Guo, Shengjie; Zhang, Ziling; Zhou, Fangjian; Liu, Zhuowei // PLoS ONE;Dec2013, Vol. 8 Issue 12, p1 

    Paclitaxel is a drug within one of the most promising classes of anticancer agents. Unfortunately, clinical success of this drug has been limited by the insurgence of cellular resistance. To address this, Paclitaxel resistance was modeled in an in vitro system using estrogen treated prostate...

  • Dysregulation of the homeobox transcription factor gene HOXB13: role in prostate cancer. Decker, Brennan; Ostrander, Elaine A. // Pharmacogenomics & Personalized Medicine;Aug2014, Vol. 7, p193 

    Prostate cancer (PC) is the most common noncutaneous cancer in men, and epidemiological studies suggest that about 40% of PC risk is heritable. Linkage analyses in hereditary PC families have identified multiple putative loci. However, until recently, identification of specific risk alleles has...

  • Complex regulation of human androgen receptor expression by Wnt signaling in prostate cancer cells. Yang, X.; Chen, M-W.; Terry, S.; Vacherot, F.; Bemis, D. L.; Capodice, J.; Kitajewski, J.; de la Taille, A.; Benson, M. C.; Guo, Y.; Buttyan, R. // Oncogene;6/8/2006, Vol. 25 Issue 24, p3436 

    β-Catenin, a component of the Wnt signaling pathway, is a coactivator of human androgen receptor (hAR) transcriptional activity. Here, we show that Wnt signaling also influences androgen-mediated signaling through its ability to regulate hAR mRNA and protein in prostate cancer (PCa) cells....
