  • Novel mechanism identified that protects pancreas from digestive enzymes
    Researchers have uncovered the mechanism by which the stress hormone FGF21 keeps digestive enzymes from damaging the pancreas.

  • Using E. coli to detect hormone disruptors in the environment
    Endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) have been implicated in the development of obesity, diabetes and cancer and are found in a wide array of products including pesticides, plastics and pharmaceuticals. EDCs are potentially harmful, even at low concentrations, equal in some cases to mere milligrams dissolved in in a swimming pool full of water. Now researchers report that they can quickly detect environmentally relevant concentrations of EDCs using engineered E. coli bacteria.

  • Normal ranges for testosterone levels defined
    A large study of more than 9,000 men has established harmonized reference ranges for total testosterone in men that when applied to assays that have been appropriately calibrated will effectively enable clinicians to make a correct diagnosis of hypogonadism, according to a new study.

  • Role of common risk factors in ER-positive, ER-negative breast cancer
    Researchers have examined the role of common risk factors in the development of ER-positive and ER-negative breast cancers. The study sheds new light on how a woman’s age, weight, and menopausal status affect her risk for breast cancer.

  • Breast cancer patients could benefit from controversial hormone
    An international team of researchers is tackling the controversy over what some scientists consider to be a 'harmful' hormone, arguing that it could be a game changer in the fight against recurring breast cancers that are resistant to standard treatments.
