Phytoestrogens, Coumestrol,
Resveratrol, and Xenoestrogens
Interactions With Cancer
By Michaela Phillips
• Cancer is a major cause of mortality
• National Cancer Institute 2011-2012 Cancer
Trends Report shows prostate, breast, lung,
and colorectal cancer rates are decreasing
compared to other cancers
• Use of phytoestrogens and estrogenic
Estrogen Metabolism
• Estradiol conversion to
estrone and estriol
• Products oxidized by Cyt
P450 and hydroxillated at
-2, -4, -16
– CYP1B1: Enzyme that
catalyzes at -16 position
– CYP1A1: Enzyme that
catalyzes at -2 position
• Inducible by diet including
cruciferous vegetables, EFAs,
flax and soy (controversial)
Lord & Bongiovanni, 2001, p115
Estrogen Metabolism
• -2/-16 ratio –
Higher ratio is
desirable to reduce
Lord & Bongiovanni, 2001, p123
Pytoestrogens and Ovarian Cancer
• 10% inherited through genes
• Bandera et Al study on phytoestrogen effects on
epithelial ovarian cancer
– 205 cases from 6 NJ counties from the state cancer
registry; 390 controls
– Modified Block food frequency questionnaire
• Lignans (flax, grain/bread, nuts, coffee, tea, FV) found to be
major source of phytoestrogens in this population.
– Results:
• OR for highest vs. lowest tertile of lignan intake = 1.0, 95%
CI: 0.68-1.79
• OR of 0.66 for the highest tertile (CI of 95%: 0.41-1.08)
Phytoestrogens and Prostate Cancer
• Leading cause of death in males
• Soy phytoestrogens
– Daidzen and genistein
• Reversal of hypermethyllation of BRCA1, EPHB2, and
GSTP1 in DU-145 and PC-3 cell lines (prostate cancer)
– Genistein
• Slightly upregulated proteins for BRCA1, EPHB2, and
GSTP1 possibly due to longer exposure to treatment
Phytoestrogens and Breast Cancer
• Soy Isoflavones
– American Cancer Society advises breast cancer survivors to
limit soy intake
– Sakamoto study
• Soy phytoestrogens moderately increased cancer cell growth in
the presence of E2 (17-estradiol)
• Daidzen and Genistein
– Did not reduce tumor activity
– Slightly suppressed E2
• Genistein: Induced apoptosis and reduced BC1-2/Bax ratio.
• Glycitein: Repressed cell growth, induced apoptosis, and slightly
reduced BC1-2/Bax ratio. Showed a weak effect on transactivation
of estrogen receptors compared with other isoflavones.
• Sakamoto et Al. (2009)
– Resveratrol inhibited E2
– Resveratrol showed the greatest antitumor effect
whether or not E2 was present
– Results were similar at high or low serum doses
– Shows promise for future research
• Found in alfalfa, red clover, legumes, and soy
• Coumestrol stimulates tumor growth, but is
found in such low concentrations in food that
it is unlikely to increase the risk of developing
breast cancer (Sakamoto et Al. 2009)
• Chemicals that have estrogenic properties such as
Bisphenol A (BPA) that can leach out of plastic when
heat is applied
• July 2013, the FDA banned the use of BPA in infant
formula packaging due to market abandonment, not
• Fernandez and Russo (2010)
– Bisphenol A could be involved in the initiation or
progression of breast cancer
• Lord and Bongiovanni (2011)
– Limiting xenoestrogen exposure lowers cancer risk possibly
by reducing 16hydroxyllation
• Higher -2/-16 ratio
• Diet manipulation can increase -2-OHE
– Consumption of cruciferous vegetables, flax, EFA
• Soy Isoflavones
– Reversed DNA methyllation in prostate cancer cell lines
– Did not reduce tumor activity in breast cancer cells
• Glycitein: Beneficial to inhibit tumor growth and apoptosis,
but weak estrogen receptor transactivity.
• Resveratrol:
– Promising potential
– Effective at high or normal doses independent of E2
• Xenoestrogens: Avoid exposure
