Authors: Marinho PM, Salomon TB, Andrade AS, Behling CS, Putti JS, Benfato MS, Schäfer Hackenhaar F Abstract Menopause occurs as consequence of ovarian senescence that leads to a drop of oestrogen hormone. The decreased oestrogen levels combined with the impairment of the redox system may contribute to the increased risk of postmenopausal cardiovascular disease. Supplementation with antioxidants may be an alternative to reduce cardiovascular risk. The study evaluated the effect of dietary supplementation with docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and alpha-lipoic acid (LA) for a period of 16&...

This study aimed to investigate health state utility values in eight health states related to osteoporosis and osteoporotic fractures using time trade-off (TTO) technique among postmenopausal Korean women. METHODS: Scenarios describing eight health states including osteoporosis and hip, vertebral, post-hip, post-vertebral, ankle, humerus, and wrist fractures were developed and presented to 500 female participants aged 45 to 59 years who were selected with probability proportionate to age group and region for this investigation. Each health states valuation was derived using the trade-off (TTO) technique. 10 years of a ...
