Exposure to diethylstilbestrol
during sensitive life stages: a legacy of heritable health effects.
Walker BE (1983) Uterine tumors in old female mice exposed prenatally to diethylstilbestrol
Vaginal and cervical cancer due to diethylstilbestrol
(DES); end epidemic.
-d6 showed 2 unstable peaks over time.
For 1 month, most mice received drinking water laced with uranium or diethylstilbestrol
(DES), an estrogen-mimicking drug.
The advertisement for diethylstilbestrol
, a synthetic estrogen, was a picture of health.
A two-year study presented at the 93rd Annual Meeting of the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) has confirmed the presence of synthetic compounds including the estrogenic drug diethylstilbestrol
(DES) in PC-SPES, the herbal supplement used by prostate cancer patients.
We recently studied a ThinPrep Papanicolaou test (Cytyc Corporation, Boxborough, Mass) from a 51-year-old woman with a history of exposure to diethylstilbestrol
who was 3 years postmenopausal and on hormone replacement therapy.
Half will get PC-SPES; the others will get an estrogen called DES, or diethylstilbestrol
The grandchildren of women who took the antimiscarriage drug diethylstilbestrol
(DES) are covered by the manufacturer's insurance policy and may recover damages, the Second Circuit recently held.
One possible source is linked to the hormone diethylstilbestrol
(DES), which many women took during pregnancy to prevent miscarriages.
For example, the synthetic hormone diethylstilbestrol
(DES), which was administered to millions of pregnant women in the United States between 1945 and 1971 to prevent miscarriage, was discontinued because of increased risk of vaginal and cervical cancers in the daughters of such women who had had foetal exposure to the hormone.
At issue is the Swiss government's notification last July that it found traces of growth promotant diethylstilbestrol
(DES) in two of 100 samples of U.
Unfortunately, however, it took the agency until 1979 to ban the synthefc hormone diethylstilbestrol
(DES), widely used since the 1950s to bulk up beef, well after the hormone was associated with cancers in humans in the early '60s.
Information on the human health effects of environmental estrogens comes from accounts of maternal exposure to diethylstilbestrol
- a synthetic estrogen routinely administered to pregnant women from the 1940s to the 1970s.
