  • When Progesterone Cycled with Estrogen – No Increased Cardiac Risk
    In this particular study, a main concern that comes with hormone therapy is tackled. A national register study, these accurate findings assessed the potential risk of myocardial infection (MI) a women who is seeking hormone therapy might be faced with. In conclusion, the national study found that hormone therapy application and regimen differences, among other factors, could effect the actual risk of MI as a result of female hormone therapy.

  • Without Progestins (Non-Bioidentical Progesterone) – No Increased Cardiac or Breast Cancer Risk
    Aside from the decades of research on the lone use of estrogen, this study makes a grand attempt at assessing the effects that conjugated equine estrogen (CEE) may have on postmenopausal women in the US. Particularly, effects that were of concern and were of main research were the effects that such estrogen-only postmenopausal hormone therapy had on increasing or decreasing major disease incidence, such as breast cancer.

  • French Study – When Bioidentical Hormones Used – No Increased Risk of Breast Cancer
    The largest-to-date randomized trial (Women’s Health Initiative) comparing the effects of hormone replacement therapy (HRT) and a placebo concluded that the continuous use of an oral combination of conjugated equine estrogens (CEE) and medroxy-progesterone acetate (MPA) increases the risk of breast cancer…Continue Reading
  • HRT is Best Treatment for Osteoporosis
    OBJECTIVE: To determine the effects of HRT with or without clodronate on bone mineral density (BMD) change and bone turnover markers. DESIGN: Prospective, partly randomized trial…Continue Reading
  • Bioidentical, Transdermal, Estradiol Improves Cognitive Function for Women with Alzheimer’s Disease
    Abstract: We aimed to conduct a placebo-controlled, double-blind, parallel-group design intervention study to evaluate the therapeutic efficacy of hormone therapy (HT) in postmenopausal women with mild to moderate Alzheimer’s disease (AD). The trial was designed to evaluate the dose-dependent effects of transdermal 17-β estradiol, unopposed and opposed with medroxyprogesterone (MPA, Provera©), for 12 months in 50 postmenopausal women with AD…Continue Reading
  • Estrogens May Prevent Alzheimer’s Disease
    Abstract: We aimed to conduct a placebo-controlled, double-blind, parallel-group design intervention study to evaluate the therapeutic efficacy of hormone therapy (HT) in postmenopausal women with mild to moderate Alzheimer’s disease (AD). The trial was designed to evaluate the dose-dependent effects of transdermal 17-β estradiol, unopposed and opposed with medroxyprogesterone (MPA, Provera©), for 12 months in 50 postmenopausal women with AD…Continue Reading
  • Higher Estradiol Levels Associated with Looking Younger
    Abstract: We estimated the age of perimenopausal women at a first visit and measured the concentrations of oestradiol in serum. The accuracy of estimation of age strongly correlated with oestradiol concentrations: age was overestimated when oestradiol was low and underestimated when oestradiol was highContinue Reading
  • Bioidentical Hormones are Different and Better
    BACKGROUND: The use of bioidentical hormones, including progesterone, estradiol, and estriol, in hormone replacement therapy (HRT) has sparked intense debate. Of special concern is their relative safety compared with traditional synthetic and animal-derived versions, such as conjugated equine estrogens (CEE), medroxyprogesterone acetate (MPA), and other synthetic progestins. Proponents for bioidentical hormones claim that they are safer than comparable synthetic and nonhuman versions of HRT…Continue Reading
  • Estrogen is Better Than Drug for Urinary Leakage
    OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to compare the efficacy of the ultralow-dose estradiol vaginal ring with that of oral oxybutynin in the treatment of overactive bladder in postmenopausal women…Continue Reading
  • Estrogen Can Reverse Skin Aging & Improve Wound Healing
    Abstract: The links between hormonal signalling and lifespan have been well documented in a range of model organisms. For example, in C. elegans or D. melanogaster, lifespan can be modulated by ablating germline cells, or manipulating reproductive history or pregnenolone signalling. In mammalian systems, however, hormonal contribution to longevity is less well understood…Continue Reading
