    Glucose Is Anabolic For Thymus, Opposes Catabolic Effects Of Cortisol

    As most of my readers know, cortisol is a highly catabolic steroid and one of the main agents (estrogen being another) responsible for thymus atrophy with age. These catabolic effects of cortisol can be blocked by progesterone, DHEA, pregnenolone, and even DHT (but not by testosterone). The...

    High Metabolism And/Or Progesterone Can Regrow Amputated Limbs

    Another great example of "synchronicity" (Synchronicity - Wikipedia) happened today. Two separate but related studies, with similar organisms, popped up today in my mailbox. One of them (at UCDavis) shows that the redox status in favor of oxidation, and thus high reactive oxygen species (ROS)...

    Aromatase Inhibitors Regenerate The Thymus In Aging Male Rats

    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/1521922 Abstract The thymus can be regenerated in aging rats by surgical or chemical castration and regeneration is inhibited by testosterone, which may exert this effect, at least in part, through its conversion to estradiol. An attempt has been made to...
