Medical News Today: Hormone replacement therapy may increase risk of hearing loss
A new, first-of-its-kind study investigates the link between hormone replacement therapy and hearing loss in menopausal and postmenopausal women.
Abstract Purpose: The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of breast density on breast cancer risk among women screened via a nationwide mammographic screening program. Patients and methods: We conducted a nested case-control study for a randomly selected population of 1,561 breast cancer patients and 6,002 matched controls from the National Cancer Screening Program. Breast density was measured and recorded by two independent radiologists using the Breast Imaging Reporting and Data System (BI-RADS). Associations between BI-RADS density and breast cancer risk were evaluated according to screeni...

(Reuters Health) - A self-help cognitive behavioral therapy program combined with relaxation techniques can ease working women ’s menopausal symptoms, according to a British study.
ConclusionsThus, to conclude, this report emphasizes the diagnostic value of FGF21 assay in this disorder. It extends the phenotype associated with the founder mutation inRMND1 gene in patients from South Asia.
Mutations in the MYO7A gene, encoding the motor protein myosin VIIa, can cause Usher 1B, a deafness/blindness syndrome in humans, and the shaker-1 phenotype, characterized by deafness, head tossing, and circling behavior, in mice. Myosin VIIa is responsible for tension bearing and the transduction mechanism in the stereocilia and for melanosome transport in the retina, in line with the phenotypic outcomes observed in mice. However, the effect of the shaker-1 mutation, a R502P amino acid substitution, on the motor function is unclear. To explore this question, we determined the kinetic properties and the effect on the filop...

New research explores the risk/benefit profile of reproductive hormone therapy in menopausal women with migraine.
Early menarche, early menopause and miscarriage were among the factors associated with an increased risk for cardiovascular disease.
Discussion of the menopause tends be negative. Take the video introduction to “menopause week” held this week on BBC Radio 4 and BBC Radio Sheffield. The well-meaning presenters talk of “distress”, the impact, the “troubling” changes, and “how to get through it”. Of course the aim is to support and educate, and it’s important to acknowledge the seriousness of some women’s problems. However, there’s arguably a risk that an overly negative tone perpetuates beliefs and stereotypes that may foster unjustified dread about the menopause. In fact, according to a re...
