This volume focuses on topics ranging from the impact of endogenous and exogenous estrogens on human development and cancer risk, to novel aspects in mechanisms of estrogen action, to estrogen implication in human malignancies (breast, prostate, liver), to the emerging role of estrogen in neurodegenerative disorders (Alzheimer's disease, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease), to estrogen action in the cardiovascular system (including both genomic and nongenomic), to estrogen effects on cells of the immune system and their relevance to immune response and autoimmune diseases. The resulting inferences for clinics, diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment are also presented and extensively discussed.
