Abstract AIMS: Pre-clinical data suggest that the racemic phyto-oestrogen 8-prenylnaringenin (8-PN) may have beneficial effects in postmenopausal women CONCLUSION: and may become an alternative to classical hormone replacement therapy (HRT) treatment regimes. The aim of this study was to investigate the pharmacokinetics, endocrine effects and tolerability of chemically • synthesized 8-PN indoses of up women. mg 8-PN were well tolerated by postmenopausal Single oral postmenopausal to 750 women. METHODS: • The studypharmacokineticrandomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, dose-escalation design with three The was performed using a profile of 8-PN was characterized by rapid and probably groups of eight healthy postmenopausal women. In each group six subjects received 8-PN and two subjects placebo. complete enteral absorption, high metabolic stability, pronounced enterohepatic 8-PN was given orally in doses of 50, 250 or 750 mg.

Serum concentrations of free 8-PN showed rapid drug absorption and secondary peaks suggestive of marked enterohepatic postmenopausal women. recirculation. Independent of the treatment group, approximately 30% of the dose was recovered in excreta as free compound or conjugates over the 48-h observation period. The first C(max) and AUC(0-48 h) showed dose linearity with ratios of 1 : 4.5 : 13.6 (C(max)) and 1 : 5.2 : 17.1 (AUC). The750- mg dose decreased LH concentrations by 16.7% (95% confidence interval 0.5, 30.2). CONCLUSION:
  • 9. Don’t confuse 8-PN with other Hops Extracts • Dr. Arne Heyerick is from the Integrated Multidisciplinary Center for Molecular Nutrition Laboratory of Pharmacognosy and Phytochemistry Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences Ghent University – Ugent • ”The mode-of-action and target applications for 8-PN vs reduced Iso-alphaacids (RIAA) are completely different. RIAA are anti-inflammatory compounds and would work via inhibition of specific kinases in inflammatory pathways. RIAA do not have any effect on estrogen-related targets.” • “8-PN is a phytoestrogen and interacts with estrogen-related targets to modulate estrogen-related pathways. 8-PN can exert both pro-estrogenic effects (eg. through estrogen receptor alpha and beta) and anti-estrogenic effects (eg. through aromatase) and therefore acts as an estrogen modulator rather than a pure estrogen such as estradiol.”
