OBJECTIVE: This study aims to explore the associations between sex hormones and cognitive performance in older women. METHODS: Associations between sex hormones, sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG) and cognitive performance were examined in women aged at least 70 years, without dementia and not using medications that influence sex hormones. Linear and generalized linear regression models included age, body mass index, education, smoking, alcohol, living circumstances, diabetes, hypertension, depression and impaired renal function...

Objectives: This study aimed to evaluate the efficacy of vaginal oxygen and hyaluronic acid on genito-urinary symptoms of breast cancer survivors. Methods: Patients were enrolled at the Menopause Outpatient Clinic of a university hospital. Breast cancer patients in a stable relationship, suffering from vaginal atrophy (VA) consequent to hypoestrogenism, were included. Natural oxygen was introduced into the vagina for 15 min, coupled in the last 5 min with a 2% solution of hyaluronic acid. Treatment was repeated five times, every 15 days...

OBJECTIVE: We investigated whether estrone and sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG) concentrations are associated with lipid concentrations in older postmenopausal women. METHODS: This was a cross-sectional study of 6358 Australian women, aged 70-95 years, recruited between 2010 and 2014. Associations between estrone and SHBG and lipid concentrations were examined in participants not using medications that influence estrogen concentrations or lipid-lowering therapy...

I Milsom, M Gyhagen
Divergent opinions have been reported in the literature regarding the influence of the climacteric on the prevalence, incidence and types of urinary incontinence. In addition, the influence of hormonal therapy in the climacteric (HRT) on the occurrence of urinary incontinence in the perimenopausal period has been the subject of much discussion. This review evaluates the current literature regarding any possible association between the climacteric and the prevalence, incidence and types of urinary incontinence as well as illustrating the possible influence of HRT on urinary incontinence...

OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to use external sleep disturbance as a model to evaluate sleep architecture in climacteric women before and after menopausal hormone therapy (MHT). METHODS: Seventeen perimenopausal and 18 postmenopausal women underwent a polysomnography protocol: an adaptation night, a reference night and a sleep disturbance night with one hand loosely tied to the bed for blood sampling. The sleep architecture of the reference and disturbance nights were compared...

Menopausal women are a large and economically relevant group in the workforce. Yet their quality of life (QoL) and needs in the workplace have been neglected. Thus, the aim of this systematic review was to provide an overview of QoL of menopausal women in the workplace. Systematic literature searches were executed, yielding 1211 references. After abstract screening, 156 articles remained for full-text screening. Finally, 12 articles fulfilled the inclusion criteria and were included in this review. Age, educational level, type of work, working environment (e...

JOURNAL ARTICLE
T E J Stevenson, M P Brincat, J Pollacco, J C Stevenson
OBJECTIVE: Intervertebral discs act as shock absorbers, thereby helping to reduce the risk of vertebral body fractures. Previous studies have shown that estrogen loss following menopause is associated with disc height reduction whereas treatment with hormone replacement therapy (HRT) helps to maintain disc height. This study reports the effect of HRT on disc height from a post hoc analysis of a prospective randomized clinical trial of the effect of HRT on bone density. METHODS: A total of 355 healthy postmenopausal women aged (mean ± standard deviation) 55...

OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to evaluate the influence of a 16-week concurrent exercise program on health-related quality of life in middle-aged women. METHODS: A total of 150 middle-aged women from the FLAMENCO project (age range 45-60 years) were randomized into a counseling ( n  = 75) or an exercise ( n  = 75) group. The exercise group followed a 16-week (3 days/week, 60 min/session) concurrent exercise program (aerobic + resistance training)...

JOURNAL ARTICLE
S R Davis
The clinical effects of testosterone in women have expanded from the field of androgen excess to consideration of testosterone action and the consequences of depletion and replacement. This article is not a comprehensive review of the vast and increasing literature in this field. Rather, it summarizes some of what is known of testosterone in women that the author elected to highlight in a plenary lecture and is hopefully informative, but not to be considered conclusive.

JOURNAL ARTICLE
D Shah, S Rasool
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is the commonest gynecological endocrinopathy. Little is known about the exact etiopathogenesis and cardiometabolic mortality and morbidity in women with PCOS. PCOS is beyond the cosmetic concerns of an adolescent and fertility concerns of an adult and can cause serious unhealthy consequences in perimenopausal and postmenopausal age. This area needs to be assessed and addressed since the majority of these patients are lost to follow-up after completion of their families. Good evidence suggests that there are significant racial and ethnic differences in prevalence, insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome, hyperandrogenemia and the related cardiometabolic risk in women with PCOS...

OBJECTIVE: Triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) is highly aggressive and leads to a poor prognosis. microRNA-181a (miR-181a) exhibits strong antineoplastic effects in many types of cancer. In this study, we examine the responses of human miR-181a-transfected TNBC cells and explore the mechanisms underlying the observed effects. METHODS: A series of cellular assays were conducted using cells from the MDA-MB-231 TNBC line to assess the impact of miR-181a overexpression...

The peer review process is an inalienable necessity in the modern scientific world. Published manuscripts are founded on feedback, a process in which reviewers evaluate the scientific values of the submitted paper and provide comments and criticisms. The aim of this process is to assist authors by improving their papers, to promote good science. The peer-review process can be represented as a hurdle race with the ultimate prize of innovative accurate scientific knowledge being published. In this process, we have on the one side the authors and originators of ideas and on the other editors and reviewers...

OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to determine the effects of estetrol (E4) on hemostasis, lipids, carbohydrate metabolism and bone turnover in postmenopausal women. METHODS: This study was a multicenter, randomized, double-blind placebo-controlled phase 2 trial. Participants ( n  = 180, age 43-64 years) received E4 2.5 mg, 5 mg, 10 mg and 15 mg or placebo once daily for 12 weeks. Changes from baseline at week 12 were evaluated versus placebo for hemostasis parameters, sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG), lipids, carbohydrate metabolism and bone markers...

This review was conducted to explore the association between endogenous testosterone blood concentrations and cognitive performance among community dwelling postmenopausal women. We searched Ovid MEDLINE, EMBASE, PsycINFO and Web of Science databases for observational studies with at least 100 postmenopausal participants. The results were categorized by study design, reporting of total or free testosterone and risk of bias assessments, narratively. Ten of the 26 articles retrieved for full-text review met the inclusion criteria, six provided cross-sectional data, seven provided longitudinal data and one provided case-control data...
