Effects of postmenopausal estrogen replacement on the concentrations and metabolism of plasma lipoproteins.
TLDR
Two randomized, double-blind crossover studies in healthy postmenopausal women who had normal lipid values at base line found that estrogen-replacement therapy may reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and this beneficial effect may be mediated in part by favorable changes in plasma lipid levels.

Effects of postmenopausal estrogen replacement on the concentrations and metabolism of plasma lipoproteins.
TLDR
The postmenopausal use of oral estrogens in low doses favorably alters LDL and HDL levels that may protect women against atherosclerosis, while minimizing potentially adverse effects on triglyceride levels. Expand
The relation of endometriosis to menstrual characteristics, smoking, and exercise.
TLDR
Risk for endometriosis may relate to menstrual factors that predispose to greater pelvic contamination with menstrual products and to constitutional factors that influence endogenous hormonal levels. Expand
Coagulation activation following estrogen administration to postmenopausal women.
TLDR
Data indicate that low doses of oral estrogens frequently increase the amount of thrombin generated in vivo, which may help to explain the increased thrombotic risk that has been observed with higher doses of this medication. Expand
Caffeine and Other Predictors of Bone Density among Pre- and Perimenopausal Women
TLDR
Caffeine was inversely associated with bone density independent of dietary, anthropometric, and hormonal factors, indicating that caffeine may be an important determinant of bone density. Expand
Lower prevalence of breast cancer and cancers of the reproductive system among former college athletes compared to non-athletes.
TLDR

Indications for hysterectomy.
TLDR
Although there appears to be a downward trend in the rate since the mid-1980s, it is not yet known whether a true decline has occurred, because there have been recent changes in the NHDS sampling method. Expand
Parathyroid hormone for the prevention of bone loss induced by estrogen deficiency.
TLDR
Parathyroid hormone can prevent bone loss in the lumbar spine in young women with estrogen deficiency caused by treatment with GnRH analogues, according to a study conducted in women with endometriosis androgen-dependent disorders. Expand
Seasonal variation and age-related changes in human semen parameters.
TLDR
Seasonal variations were found in sperm concentration and morphology, with higher sperm concentrations inWinter than in fall, and a greater percentage of sperm with normal morphology in winter than in spring and summer. Expand
Ovarian failure in long-term survivors of childhood malignancy.
TLDR
Covariate and multivariate analyses of tumor type, age at diagnosis, duration of follow-up, abdominal tumor surgery, abdominal radiotherapy, number of chemotherapeutic agents administered, and cumulative doses of several drugs revealed that the location of the ovaries relative to radiation treatment fields was the only risk factor for subsequent ovarian failure.
