Popescu, and M. The relative risks and corresponding standard errors derived from the CIs from individual studies were transformed to their natural logarithms to stabilize the variances and to normalize the distributions.
A generalised shift towards Th2 responses would explain the decrease in severity of RA and MS during pregnancy as Th1 responses directed against self-tissues are thought to mediate tissue damage in these conditions. This article has been cited by other articles in PMC.
Oestradiol has also been shown to prevent lipopolysaccharide-induced inflammatory responses in primary cultures of rat microglia . In the dorsal hippocampus of female mice, we noted that the BDNF hets tended to show a hypersensitive response to hormone treatment in terms of GluR2A and 2B expression.
Persson I, Yuen J, Bergkvist L, Schairer C Cancer incidence and mortality in women receiving estrogen and estrogen-progestin replacement therapy—long-term follow-up of a Swedish cohort.
How, or if, these functions are regulated by pregnancy-associated changes in oestradiol and progesterone remains to be determined, although IL mRNA in human endometrium is significantly increased during the secretory phase of the cycle, compared to the proliferative phase, and IL production by endometrial stromal cells is enhanced by progesterone .
Rudomen G. Hill and W. Table S1 Methodological quality of included studies based on the Newcastle—Ottawa Scale for assessing the quality of included studies. Following castration, mice were turned over to a prone position and 1.
These studies suggest that in order to really understand how sex hormones affect both normal immune responses and autoimmunity it will be necessary to study the effects of oestradiol and progesterone on immune cells at concentrations that reflect those found both during the normal oestrous cycle and during pregnancy.
In a widely used mouse model of genital tract infection with Chlamydia muridarum , vaginal infection is enhanced by pretreatment of mice with progesterone . Kita E. Oestradiol-induced infection of the genital tract of female mice by Mycoplasma hominis.
