welcome to biology stackexchange! In the classical way we think of the body, there won't be a lot of genetic changes if the ovaries, uterus (or the testes for that matter) are removed from the body. The main effect would be that the sex hormones that are produced in these organs would no longer be present and this would have a profound effect. So the ...

Answer simplified to match OP level There are two different parts of biology in this question: Genetic changes, only happen when the DNA changes (in a person's genes). But in general, this is fixed before your birth (when you are conceived), and what happens in your life does not change it any more.More accurately, genetics can change, or be changed, but ...

According to Endometriosis: benign, malignant, or something in between? (PubMed, 2017), endometriosis is not considered cancerous because: Does not appear as an expansille tumor mass Is not destructive The cells in the lesions are normal, like in the uteral endometrium Is not lethal Immunotherapy of endometriosis is in the experimental phase - you can read ...

This is an impressively referenced question, but I don't think it's reliably answerable for several reasons: it's POB the association is merely theoretical at this point the study 'results' were based on a very small number of women. While the percentage of woman with HPV is high, those with no other risk factors for CVD who have experienced MIs is much ...

GnRH is found in very low concentrations (2-10 pg/mL) Options: A highly sensitive analytical method (e.g. radioimmunoassay) To sample directly from the hypophyseal-portal system A surrogate measure This abstract: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/9749566 describes direct measurement. Direct sampling could only be done under general ...

Pregnenolone -the precursor of progesterone is principally converted to estradiol instead of progesterone.Thus the oestrogen:progesterone ratio increases prior to parturition. Fetal cortisol stimulates activity of placental 17 α hydroxylase/17, 20 lyase (CYP 17) enzyme, which catalyzes the conversion of pregnenolone to estradiol. Confinement of the ...

CVD is the leading cause of death in the developed world and HPV is the most common STD in the developed world. When dealing with something that common alot would need to be ruled out before any causative relationship was hypothesized for example the first link did not consider that oral Contraceptive use is higher in women (obviously) would increase ...

It is important to note that cancer includes loss of the property of contact inhibition in cells. This leads to uncontrolled divisions in cancerous cells. Although endometriosis includes cells dividing at ectopic locations, they still possess the property of contact inhibition. So, endometriosis can't be called a form of cancer. For information on Contact ...
