Gaspar and colleagues recruited 50 postmenopausal women with GSM and assigned 25 participants to 2 weeks of pretreatment with estriol
ovules 3 times per week (for epithelial hydration) followed by 3 sessions of Er:YAG nonablative laser treatments; 25 women in the active control group received treatment with estriol
ovules over 8 weeks.
Maternal serum median levels of alpha-foetoprotein, human chorionic gonadotropin and unconjugated estriol
in second trimester in pregnant women from north-west India.
constitutes 60-70% of the total estrogens during pregnancy if the fetal adrenal and liver are functional and AFP is secreted during pregnancy from the fetal liver in a very high amount.1 We aimed to define if there is any relationship between second trimester serum markers and neonatal severe hyperbilirubinemia to protect the neonates from its neurological damage.
[E.sub.1]: estrone; [E.sub.2]: estradiol; [E.sub.3]: estriol
; 2-[OHE.sub.1]: 2-hydroxyestrone; 2-[OHE.sub.2]: 2-hydroxyestradiol; 16a-[OHE.sub.1]: 16a-hydroxyestrone.
The research also showed that taking estriol
plus Copaxone conveyed significant positive benefits in the women's scores on cognition tests.
After one year of treating 158 women in 16 sites across the U.S., researchers found that those who were given estriol
showed a relapse rate 47% lower than the those who were given a placebo.
On the basis of the manufacturers' literature (IMMULITE 2000 Unconjugated Estriol
, PIL2KU[E.sub.3]-4,2010), both the Access and IMMULITE immunoassays use calibrators that are traceable to values assigned by the GC-MS reference method, and there are good correlations among the methods, e.g., IMMULITE 2000 = 1.01 (Beckman) -0.01 ng/mL (r = 0.980); IMMULITE 2000 = 0.98 (GCMS) + 0.02 ng/mL (r = 0.954).
One of these methods is measuring the estriol
level in serum or saliva.
(8,9) Currently, the best second-trimester test is the quadruple test (AFP, unconjugated estriol
, hCG [total or free [beta]-hCG], and inhibin-A) with an 80% detection rate at a 5% false-positive rate.

There are three major forms of estrogen that occur naturally in the human body: 1) estrone (E1); 2) estradiol (E2); and 3) estriol
The association between DS and low maternal serum alpha-fetoprotein (MSAFP) levels in the second trimester was recognized in 1984.5 This association was expanded in the late 1980s, when elevated levels of human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) and decreased levels of unconjugated estriol
were also reported in DS fetuses.
