1992 study. No differences in test performance were seen among exposed daughters. Among sons, test scores were marginally higher among the exposed, probably due to chance.

Representative photograph of control and DES-treated mouse at ~ 6months of age. 2010 study. Complex events including exposure to environmental chemicals during development may be contributing to the #obesity epidemic.

C’est la nouvelle frontière expérimentale des greffes humaines. Et l’histoire de  la médecine (française) retiendra peut être que ce fut juste. C’est aussi une forme de réponse thérapeutique à la pratique, plus que controversée, de la gestation pour autrui. L’Académie nationale de médecine a, le mardi 23 juin 2015, adopté un rapport  sur la transplantation utérine.

2015 study - Understanding which factors are associated with not acquiring a screening exam can help clinicians better identify which DES-exposed women are at risk for nonutilization and possibly tailor their standard of care to aid in the early detection of cervical and vaginal adenocarcinomas in this high-risk group. 
The higher risk group of DES-exposed women need early detection of cervical and vaginal adenocarcinomas.

Since various doses of DES resulted in obesity, most likely multiple pathways are involved in programming for obesity by environmental estrogens.

Fifty year-long study first to directly connect breast cancer risk to in utero chemical exposure. Despite being banned by many countries in the 1970s, DDT remains widespread in the environment and continues to be used in Africa and Asia.

In this 2015 study, prenatal DES exposure was associated with variation in concentrations of FSH, estradiol and inhibin B among women of late reproductive age.

The risk of recurrent unexplained stillbirth was largely unstudied until that new research. Women who experience a stillbirth in their initial pregnancy have a higher risk of stillbirth in a subsequent pregnancy. Even after adjusting for potential confounding factors, the increased risk remains.

Low-dose exposures to common environmental chemicals that are deemed safe individually may be combining to instigate carcinogenesis, thereby contributing to the incidence of cancer. This risk may be overlooked by current regulatory practices and needs to be vigorously investigated.

In this 2009 study, it appears that the effects of ‪#‎DES‬ on adipocytes may depend on the time of exposure and the dose, and that multiple mechanisms maybe altered resulting in the same ‪#‎obesity‬ phenotype.

Surgeons could soon know while their patients are still on the operating table if a tissue is cancerous, according to researchers who describe an automated droplet-based surface sampling probe that accomplishes in about 10 minutes what now routinely takes 20 to 30 minutes.

Pap tests are currently recommended for all women aged 21-65 though the authors of the review question whether screening should stop there.

Story
Tagline
DES awareness: news, updates about Diethylstilbestrol exposure, side effects, studies.
Introduction

Around the world, millions of men and women are totally unaware that they were exposed to Diethylstilbestrol DES, a toxic and carcinogenic drug prescribed to pregnant women decades ago to prevent miscarriage which has adverse health side effects on 3 generations. All of these people are not receiving proper medical treatment, or making truly informed decisions about their healthcare, as a result.

How to reach out to DES exposed individuals?
One opportunity I considered when I started writing my DES Blogs "Journal of a DES Daughter" and "DES Daughter Network" was the use of social media networks.

This Google+ page aims to break the wall of silence around the DES drug issues and further raise awareness about the health concerns including cancer and infertility associated with prenatal DES exposure.
