There is growing concern that estrogenic environmental compounds that act as endocrine disrupting chemicals might potentially have adverse effects on hormone-sensitive organs such as the breast. We have developed an in vitro- in vivo model in which we have demonstrated the carcinogenicity of E2 in the human breast epithelial cells MCFF. The utilization of this powerful and unique model has provided a tool for exploring whether bisphenol A BPA and butyl benzyl phthalate BBP have relevance in the initiation of breast cancer.

The role of steroids in carcinogenesis has become a major concern in environmental protection, biomonitoring, and clinical research. Although historically oestrogen has been related to development of reproductive system, research over the last decade has confirmed its crucial role in the development and homeostasis of other organ systems. As a number of anthropogenic agents are xenoestrogens, environmental health research has focused on oestrogen receptor level disturbances and of aromatase polymorphisms.

Many environmental compounds with oestrogenic activity are measurable in the human breast and oestrogen is a known factor in breast cancer development. Exposure to environmental oestrogens occurs through diet, household products and cosmetics, but concentrations of single compounds in breast tissue are generally lower than needed for assayable oestrogenic responses. Results presented here and elsewhere demonstrate that in combination, chemicals can give oestrogenic responses at lower concentrations, which suggests that in the breast, low doses of many compounds could sum to give a significant oestrogenic stimulus.

Estrogen receptors display high levels of promiscuity in accommodating a wide range of ligand structures, but the functional consequence of changing receptor conformations in complex with distinct agonists is highly controversial. Human MCF7 and T47D carcinoma cells, representing the most frequently used model systems for tumorigenic responses in the mammary gland, were synchronized by hormone starvation during 48 h. Surprisingly, genistein a phytoestrogenbisphenol-A and polychlorinated biphenyl congener 54 two synthetic xenoestrogens produced highly congruent genomic fingerprints by regulating the same range of human genes.

Scientists find strong association between breast cancer risk and total burden of xenoestrogens; in contrast, individual compounds show only weak associations, if any. The analyses were done not only for single compounds determined by chemical analysis, but also for a total effective burden of xenoestrogens, measured as a biological response in MCF-7 breast cancer cell line. It has been argued previously that epidemiology should focus on mixtures of compounds rather than on individual chemicals.

Food and Drug Administration in after a clinical trial showed it doubled the progression-free survival time in postmenopausal women with estrogen receptor ER positive, metastatic breast cancer. Letrozole blocks the production of estrogen, thus reducing the growth-promoting stimulation of ERs on breast cancer cells. Palbociclib blocks a different signaling pathway to impede cell division.

Breast cancer has seen a dramatic increase in incidence from 1 in 20 in to 1 in 8 today. It is notoriously triggered by environmental toxins — especially xenoestrogens, chemicals that mimic the structure of estrogen and cause estrogen dominance. These foreign estrogens are everywhere, from plastics to pesticides and even in municipal water systems.

Please take this quick survey to tell us about what happens after you publish a paper. Breast Cancer Research and Treatment. Several estrogen mimics xenoestrogens inappropriately activate the estrogen receptor ER in the absence of endogenous ligand. Given the importance of the ER in breast cancer growth and regulation, delineating the impact of these agents under conditions related to tumor treatment is of significant importance.
