Estrone sulfate, estrone and estradiol concentrations in normal and cirrhotic postmenopausal women

Steroids. 1983 May;41(5):569-73. doi: 10.1016/0039-128x(83)90022-3.

Abstract

Circulating levels (mean +/- SD) of estrone sulfate (E1S), estrone (E1) and estradiol-17 beta (E2) were measured in normal and cirrhotic postmenopausal women matched for body weight and age. In cirrhotic postmenopausal women, the E1S concentrations (201 +/- 46 pg/ml), while both E1 and E2 levels showed an increase (46 +/- 7 and 30 +/- 8 pg/ml) compared to control subjects (32 +/- 6 and 18 +/- 7 pg/ml). These data suggest that the liver plays an important role on the control of estrogen sulfation.
