Menopause is the time at which menstruation stops in women. After menopause, women are more susceptible to some diseases, especially osteoporosis and cardiovascular disease. Vitamin D has a protective effect against osteoporosis by facilitating the absorption of calcium and affecting parathyroid hormone. Vitamin D also affects cardiovascular function by lowering the blood pressure, which affects the renin–angiotensin system and alters the low-density lipoprotein receptor activity. This paper discusses supplemental vitamin D in postmenopausal women with osteoporosis and cardiovascular disease.

Abstract PDF

Today, almost 20% of female cancers are gynecological in nature. In particular, uterine cervical cancer and endometrial cancer (which have been intensively studied) seriously compromise female health. One of the ezrin-radixin-moesin (ERM) proteins, ezrin, has been associated with cancer in prior studies, including the two cancers mentioned above. Ezrin expression increases, as does the expression of other factors, in uterine cervical cancer; ezrin may promote cancer development by influencing the actions of the other factors. Also, an increase in ezrin level contributes to the development of diseases such as endometrial cancer.

Today, many materials as drug are developed having various prominent function in order to treatment of disease or cancer. Among these materials, especially docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), main constituents of omega-3 fatty acid, has a lot of beneficial and natural effects, so it has been known as anticancer material especially breast cancer. Breast cancer is disease taking high occurrence level among feminine diseases. DHA has anticancer effects on breast cancer cell, representatively inducing apoptosis, inhibiting proliferation or metastasis. Main effect of DHA on breast cancer cell is apoptosis inducing, which has mechanism that treated DHA causes lipid peroxidation increasing reactive oxygen species (ROS) level and it activates caspase 8 and caspase 9 so activated caspase occurs apoptosis. Cell lines of breast cancer are MDA-MB-231, MCF-7, SK-BR-3, T47D and ZR75. Especially this article uses the MCF-7 cell line at experiment of anti-proliferation by DHA, the MDA-MB-231 cell line at experiment of anti-metastasis by DHA, because that cell line has specialized metastasis activity. Therefore, this paper discusses the effects of natural material DHA as drug of breast cancer.
