Estrogen receptor-a knockout mice exhibit resistance to the developmental effects of neonatal diethylstilbestrol exposure on the female reproductive tract.
Most of these risks were increased by a factor of more than two, compared with the risks in women of the same age who were not exposed to diethylstilbestrol (DES), said Dr.
Nor does she blame the inventor, Sir Charles Dodd, a British researcher who published the formula for diethylstilbestrol in 1938 but did not patent it.
Dr Sonia Hernandez-Diaz, from Boston University School of Public Health in the US, said in an accompanying article: 'Knowledge gained from the diethylstilbestrol debacle should be used to guide research on the possible risks associated with oestrogens being encountered by current generations.
Second, the product was not inherently defective as was diethylstilbestrol (DES), the source of many market share cases.
18 Irreversible Effects of Diethylstilbestrol on Reproductive Organs and a Current
BACKGROUND: Studies have shown that perinatal exposure to the synthetic estrogen diethylstilbestrol (DES) leads to feminization of the seminal vesicle (SV) in male mice, as illustrated by tissue hyperplasia, ectopic expression of the major estrogen-inducible uterine secretory protein lactoferrin (LP), and reduced expression of SV secretory protein IV (SVS IV).
The experimenters' negative controls were given sesame oil, and the positive controls were given diethylstilbestrol (DES), a much more potent estrogen-mimicking chemical.
EDCs noted in the review include environmental estrogens, or estrogen mimics, most notably BPA--a synthetic monomer that is used in the production of polycarbonate plastics and epoxy resins--as well as polychlorinated biphenyls, diethylstilbestrol, dioxins, and phthalates.
Gourmeds currently are available to veterinarians in four other commonly prescribed pet medications, including Cisapride, Metronidazole, Diethylstilbestrol and Methimazole.
Nagourney and his colleagues chemically analyzed PC-SPES and found diethylstilbestrol, or DES, a synthetic estrogen that has been used as an anticancer drug but can cause heart problems.
Eleven women whose mothers took diethylstilbestrol (DES) while they were pregnant were recently awarded substantial compensatory damages against the companies that manufactured the drug.
