          About This Event

          Summary

          Lawrence Roth, M.D., professor emeritus of pathology and laboratory medicine, will present a John Shaw Billings History of Medicine Society lecture from noon to 1 p.m. Monday, April 1, in the VanNuys Medical Science Building, Room B26.

          Dr. Roth will trace the history of diethylstilbestrol (DES) from its synthesis in 1938, regular prescription to prevent complications of pregnancy in the 1940s to early 1970s, and the discovery of unforeseen side effects in the early 1970s, which sparked controversies that continue to the present day. His lecture title is “Exogeneous Estrogenic Hormones, Diethylstilbestrol (DES), Vaginal Adenosis, and Clear Cell Adenocarcinoma in Young Women: A Therapeutic Misadventure.”

           Dr. Roth, in collaboration with Ned Hornback, M.D., published a report on the relationship of DES and cervical clear cell adenocarcinoma in young women in 1974 and has maintained a keen interest in the topic since that time.

          This event is sponsored by the IU History of Medicine Student Interest Group.

          A pizza lunch will be provided. To RSVP, email medhum@iupui.edu
