CONCLUSIONS AND CLINICAL RELEVANCE: Similar to findings in people, cats had decreasing hepatic ADC as HFF increased. Protons associated with fat tissue in the liver may reduce diffusivity, resulting in a lower ADC than in liver with lower HFF. Longer studies and evaluation of cats with different nutritional states are necessary to further investigate these findings. PMID: 32969732 [PubMed - in process]

The objective of this study is to quantify the magnitude of association between putative weight-promoting medications and 3-year weight change in a diverse cohort of postmenopausal women in the Women's Health Initiative (WHI). Methods: This is a prospective observational cohort study, considering 40 sites in the WHI and a cohort of seventy six thousand two hundred fifty-two postmenopausal women aged 50-79 years, with weight measured at both baseline and 3 years, in the WHI-Observational Study. Body mass index (BMI) and waist circumference (WC) were measured at baseline and 3 years. An in-clinic medication inventory iden...

Conclusions: 17β-Estradiol exhibits the greatest efficacy on the attenuation of obesity with the least harmful effect on skeletal muscle in a model of menopause with obesity, yet its effect on the treatment of hyperlipidemia is inferior to those of standard lipid-lowering agents.
