Sex Hormone Roles in Urogenital Malignant Diseases

Call for Papers

Many diseases, especially urological diseases, are characterized by gender differences, not only in there incidence, but also in disease progression and prognosis. The reasons why gender differences universally exist remain unsolved. Except for their physiologic behavior and environmental distinctions, recent studies have shown that these gender differences could be attributed to the various levels and activities of sex hormones and their receptors. In these studies, sex hormones and their receptors, as key regulators, dominate the disease phenotypes in benign and malignant lesions, such as stone, infection, and tumor. The clinical significance of targeting sex hormones and their receptors to treat these diseases was suggested.

We invite investigators to contribute original research articles as well as review articles which will elucidate the molecular mechanics of sex hormones and their receptors’ roles in the development, progression, and treatment of urogenital malignant diseases. We are also interested in articles that explore and develop hormone therapies for urogenital malignant diseases. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Sex hormones and their receptors and renal and ureteric tumors
  • Sex hormones and their receptors and bladder cancer
  • Sex hormones and their receptors and prostate cancer
  • Sex hormones and their receptors and male genital cancers
