  Estradiol - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Androstendione is either converted to testosterone which in turn undergoes aromatization to estradiol, or, alternatively, androstendione is aromatized to estrone which is converted to estradiol.
During the reproductive years most estradiol in women is produced by the granulosa cells of the ovaries by aromatization of testosterone from the theca cells, or conversion of estrone to estradiol.
One of the fascinating twists to mammalian sexual differentiation is that estradiol is one of the two active metabolites of testosterone in males (the other being dihydrotestosterone).

 MedlinePlus Drug Information: Estradiol Transdermal
Most brands of estradiol transdermal patches are used to treat hot flushes (hot flashes; sudden strong feelings of heat and sweating) and/or vaginal dryness, itching, and burning in women who are experiencing menopause (change of life; the end of monthly menstrual periods).
Transdermal estradiol is also used to prevent osteoporosis (a condition in which the bones become thin and weak and break easily) in women who are experiencing or have experienced menopause.
Transdermal estradiol may increase your risk of developing cancer of the ovaries and gallbladder disease that may need to be treated with surgery.

 Estradiol
Regression analysis showed the increase in the serum estradiol concentrations to be inversely correlated to the decreases in the plasma concentrations of F VII antigen (r = -0.34, P = 0.001) and fibrinogen (r = -0.35, P = 0.001).
Doses of 100 mg of micronized progesterone (P) and of 0.5 mg of micronized estradiol (E2) were administered vaginally and orally, respectively, in the early follicular phase of the menstrual cycle in six premenopausal women.
The results demonstrate that estradiol exerts profound protective effects against ischemic brain injury induced by cerebral artery occlusion and that this protective action correlates with changes in the level of gene expression of estradiol receptors and members of the Bcl-2 family.

 NEL, Effects of estradiol benzoate on the ultrastructure of the pinealocyte
OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to examine the effects of ovariectomy and ovariectomy followed by estradiol benzoate administration on the ultrastructure of pinealocytes in female rat.
Estradiol administration to ovariectomized rats resulted in formation of less extensive lipid droplets, mitochondria and ribosomes compared to pinealocyte ultrastructure of both control and ovariectomized rats.
In the present study, we have examined the effects of ovariectomy and ovariectomy followed by estradiol benzoate administration on the ultrastructure of the rat pinealocytes.

 Targeted Brain Delivery of 17ß-Estradiol Via Nasally Administered Water Soluble Prodrugs
Estradiol, the primary estrogenic hormone produced by the human ovary, has been used in substitution therapy in menopausal women or in cases of steroidogenesis failure.
The nasal absorption of estradiol and the estradiol prodrugs was studied using an in vivo experimental technique described by Hussain et al.
Because the estradiol esters are converted to estradiol very rapidly in rat plasma, analysis of estradiol in the plasma following the nasal administration of the prodrugs should accurately reflect the absorption profiles of these esters.
