PETER CHEDRAUI, GLENDA SAN MIGUEL, LUIS HIDALGO, NANCY MOROCHO  &  SUSANA ROSS

A SELECT COMBINATION OF CLINICALLY RELEVANT PHYTOESTROGENS ENHANCES ESTROGEN RECEPTOR {BETA}-BINDING SELECTIVITY AND NEUROPROTECTIVE ACTIVITIES IN VITRO AND IN VIVO.

Zhao L, Mao Z, Brinton RD.

Endocrinology. 2008 Sep 25.

We have previously shown that a number of naturally occurring phytoestrogens and derivatives were effective to induce some measures of neuroprotective responses but at a much lower magnitude than those induced by the female gonadal estrogen 17beta-estradiol (17beta-E2). In the present study, we sought to investigate whether a combination of select phytoestrogens could enhance neural responses without affecting the reproductive system. more
