    Title Alterations of T Cell Activation Signalling and Cytokine Production by Postmenopausal Estrogen Levels.
    Date May 2010
    Journal Immunity & Ageing : I & A
    Excerpt

    Immunosenescence is an age-associated disorder occurring primarily in T cell compartments, including altered subset composition, functions, and activation. In women, evidence implicates diminished estrogen in the postmenopausal period as a contributing factor to diminished T cell responsiveness. Since hypoestrogenism is present in postmenopausal women, our objective focused on whether T cell activation, defined as signalling molecule expressions and activation, and function, identified as IL-2 production, were affected by low estrogen.

    Title Frozen Embryos: a Life-saving Option.
    Date November 2008
    Journal Fertility and Sterility
    Excerpt

    OBJECTIVE: To discuss an additional option for frozen embryos that can be a life-saving alternative. DESIGN: Case report and literature review. SETTING: Academic fertility center. PATIENT(S): A woman with a previous hysterectomy and frozen embryos who had a daughter afflicted with aplastic anemia. INTERVENTION(S): Four thawed multicell embryos were transfered to the patient's 37-year-old multiparous sister. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE(S): Alternative disposition of frozen embryos. RESULT(S): The HLA type of the infant was found to be an exact match for the daughter dying from aplastic anemia. CONCLUSION(S): The use of frozen embryos to prolong an existing individual's life is an additional ethical option to be considered by couples and individuals with cryopreserved embryos.
