Menopause News Flash: research, news and information

Here is the latest news from NAMS (North American Menopause Society) Meeting being held this week in Orlando, Florida:

Mitch Harman, Director of the KEEPS study reported new findings that show, “The data showed improvements in cognition, mood, menopausal symptoms, and sexual function in younger women. In addition, some measures showed slight evidence that hormone therapy might be cardio-protective in this age group, although results were not definitive and would require additional study.” Ellen was able to interview Dr. Mitch Harman early on in his research.

A presentation was made on The BREEZE 3 Study which included 600 menopausal women who were treated with Serada. Serada is hoping to be the first non-hormonal and non-antidepressant therapy for hot flashes.

Noven Pharmaceuticals, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Hisamitsu Pharmaceutical Co., Inc., today announced positive results from two multicenter, double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled Phase 3 clinical studies evaluating low-dose mesylate salt of paroxetine (LDMP; 7.5 mg/day) for the treatment of moderate to severe vasomotor symptoms (VMS) associated with menopause.

A new study may reassure some women considering short-term use of hormones to relieve hot flashes and other menopause symptoms. Starting low-dose treatment early in menopause made women feel better and did not seem to raise heart risks during the four-year study.

  1. The very best way you can lose weight, and also keep it off, is to use a diet that is healthy and loaded with all of the nutrients your body needs to stay healthy, plus make sure that you eat enough so that you do not feel hungry all the time. This is the reason why most people do not stay on their diets, because they are never content with the meals they eat.
