  • New target for prostate cancer resistant to anti-hormone therapies
    A new target that could remain sensitive even when prostate cancer becomes resistant to current treatments has been discovered by researchers. Prostate cancer becomes deadly when anti-hormone treatments stop working. This new study suggests a way to block the hormones at their entrance.

  • Male health linked to testosterone exposure in womb, study finds
    Men's susceptibility to serious health conditions may be influenced by low exposure to testosterone in the womb, new research suggests. Understanding why some men have less of the hormone than others is important because testosterone is crucial for life-long health. Low levels of the hormone have been linked to obesity, diabetes and heart disease.

  • Hormone therapy linked to lower non-Hodgkin lymphoma risk
    Menopausal hormone therapy use is linked to a lower risk of B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma, research has found. "The connection between lymphomas and menopausal hormone therapy use hinges on understanding the disease's biology and the window of susceptibility," the lead researcher said. "Hormone therapy is of interest because the loss of estrogen coupled with aging in women result in decreased immune function, which can elevate risk of non-Hodgkin lymphoma."

  • Hormones in action: It's all about the right partner
    Thousands of regulatory regions on the genomic DNA determine which part of a cell’s genetic information is expressed and which is silent. Researchers analyzed such control-regions and the changes in activity that follow treatment with a hormone. They showed that -- depending on the cell type -- a single hormone can influence different regions.

  • Childhood abuse may impair weight-regulating hormones
    Childhood abuse or neglect can lead to long-term hormone impairment that raises the risk of developing obesity, diabetes or other metabolic disorders in adulthood, according to a new study. The study examined levels of the weight-regulating hormones leptin, adiponectin and irisin in the blood of adults who endured physical, emotional or sexual abuse or neglect as children. The study found dysregulation of certain hormones in people who had been abused or neglected as children.
