Herein, we have tested the effects of application of commercial soy extract, rich in estrogen-like isoflavones, to orchidectomized adult rats (the model of mild andropause), on the corticosteroid secretion. Exploited animal model provides the opportunity to examine the potential effects of steroid-like compounds in the hormonal milieu deprived of endogenous sex steroids along with preserved hippocampal and hypothalamic regulation of the adrenal gland function. The experimental...

Introduction: Maintenance immunosuppressive regimens after renal transplantation (RTx) most often include prednisolone which may induce secondary adrenal insufficiency. Adrenal insufficiency is a potentially life-threatening side effect to glucocorticoid treatment due to the risk of acute adrenal crisis. We aimed to investigate the prevalence of prednisolone-induced adrenal insufficiency in RTx patients receiving long-term low-dose prednisolone treatment.<p class="abstext"...
