General information

  • estriol treatment sensitizes Kupffer cells to lipopolysaccharide via mechanisms dependent on increases in endotoxin receptor in vivo. [1]
  • Steroid. [2]
  • Estriol as a hormone provides a basis for the novel therapeutic use of estriol for multiple sclerosis and other putative T helper 1-mediated autoimmune diseases. [3]
  • Estriol is a potential therapeutic agent to prevent or delay Alzheimer's disease progression. [4]
  • The metabolic effects of estriol summarize to be highly toxic in rat liver. [5]
