Recreational physical activity and the risk of breast cancer in postmenopausal women: the Women's Health Initiative Cohort Study.
TLDR
It is suggested that increased physical activity is associated with reduced risk for breast cancer in postmenopausal women, longer duration provides most benefit, and that such activity need not be strenuous.
Depressed mood during the menopausal transition and early postmenopause: observations from the Seattle Midlife Women's Health Study
TLDR
Although women in the late MT stage are vulnerable to depressed mood, factors that account for depressed mood earlier in the life span continue to have an important influence and should be considered in studies of etiology and therapeutics.
Symptoms during the perimenopause: prevalence, severity, trajectory, and significance in women's lives.
TLDR
Evidence of the consequences of perimenopause symptoms by women from different ethnic groups will be enhanced significantly as a result of the Study of Women's Health Across the Nation (SWAN) and other studies in progress.
Antidepressant Use, Depressive Symptoms, and Incident Frailty in Women Aged 65 and Older from the Women's Health Initiative Observational Study
TLDR
To examine the associations between depressive symptoms, antidepressant use, and duration of use with incident frailty 3 years later in nonfrail women aged 65 and older, the aim was to establish a baseline level of baseline depression and establish an apples-to- apples relationship.
Adipokines, inflammation, and visceral adiposity across the menopausal transition: a prospective study.
TLDR
Women going through the menopausal transition have deleterious changes in inflammatory markers and adipokines that correlate with increased visceral adiposity.
Design of the Women's Health Initiative clinical trial and observational study. The Women's Health Initiative Study Group.
TLDR
The rationale for the interventions being studied in each of the CT components and for the inclusion of the OS component is described, including a brief description of the scientific and logistic complexity of the WHI.
Social support for women during chronic illness: the relationship among sources and types to adjustment.
TLDR
In general, affect, affirmation, and reciprocity from both the partner and family were associated with less depression, higher marital quality, and better family functioning.
Cancer and comorbidity
TLDR
The prevalence of comorbidity in cancer patients is described and its relation with multiple demographic and clinical variables is examined.
Protein Intake and Incident Frailty in the Women's Health Initiative Observational Study
TLDR
To evaluate the association between protein intake and incident frailty, a large number of animals were randomly assigned to receive either a high or a low level of protein each week.
Inflammation and thrombosis biomarkers and incident frailty in postmenopausal women.
TLDR
The role of markers of fibrin turnover and fibrinolysis as independent predictors of incident frailty in postmenopausal women supports the role of marker of clotting/inflammation biomarkers in the pathophysiology of geriatric syndrome of frailty.
