BOSTON (CBS) — Scientists at Imperial College London have developed a new class of experimental drugs to treat menopausal hot flashes. In a clinical trial involving 37 women, the compound called MLE4901 reduced the number of hot flashes by almost three-quarters and significantly reduced the severity. The drug blocks a chemical in the brain called neurokinin B and in the study the drug also improved sleep and concentration during the 4-week study period. MLE4901 can affect liver function but two similar drugs which don’t have this side effect are being studied in larger patient trials including one in the U.S. t...

Publication date: Available online 9 March 2018 Source:American Journal of Kidney Diseases Author(s): Kavitha Vellanki, Susan Hou Most women with dialysis-dependent chronic kidney disease (CKD) stage 5 (CKD stage 5D) are in the postmenopausal age group. Early menopause is reported for all CKD stages (stages 3-5D). The traditional definition of menopause is not applicable in CKD stage 5(D) because menses can resume with hormone replacement therapy or kidney transplantation. Treatment of vasomotor symptoms continues to be the primary indication for hormone replacement therapy, with no dosing studies done specifically for CK...

This study included 22,289 women in the Melbourne Collaborative Cohort Study. Data on age at menarche, pregnancy, parity, years of menstruation, oral contraceptive pill (OCP), menopausal status and hormone replacement therapy (HRT) were collected in 1990‐1994. Incidence of TKA during 2001‐2013 was determined by linking cohort records to the National Joint Replacement Registry. All analyses were adjusted for age, BMI at midlife, change in BMI (early reproductive age to midlife), country of birth, physical activity, smoking, and education. ResultsOver 12.7 years, 1,208 TKAs for osteoarthritis were identified. Ever pregna...

Abstract Increasing prevalence of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) worldwide has necessitated a more thorough understanding of it and expanded the scope of research in this field. Women are more resistant to NAFLD than men despite equal exposure to major risk factors, such as obesity or hyperlipidemia. Female resistance is hormone-dependent, as evidenced by the sharp increase in NAFLD incidence in post-menopausal women who do not take hormone replacement therapy. Here, we found that the estrogen-responsive pituitary hormone prolactin (PRL), through specific PRL receptor (PRLR), down-regulates hepatic trig...
