The results presented above indicate that the risk factors associated with the development of coronary heart disease in women are not that different than those identified for men. It is encouraging to note that while the prevalence of hypertension in women has not changed over the past twenty years, the proportion of treated hypertensive women has increased… (More)
Innovation in the U.S. economy is about employing and rewarding highly talented workers to produce new products. Using unique longitudinal matched employer-employee data, this paper makes a key connection between talent and firms in markets with risky product innovations. We show that software firms that operate in product markets with highly skewed returns… (More)
Osteoporosis develops in older adults when the normal processes of bone formation and resorption become uncoupled or unbalanced, resulting in bone loss. Fractures are the result of decreased bone mass and strength and, in the case of wrist and hip fractures, usually involve a fall. Osteoporosis prevention and treatment programs should then focus on… (More)
To assess long-term health effects of ovarian-stimulation drugs we followed-up for over 20 years a British cohort of 7355 women with ovulatory disorders, 43% of whom were prescribed ovarian-stimulation drugs, and identified a total of 274 deaths and 367 incident cancers. Relative to the general population, the cohort experienced lower mortality from most… (More)
A genetic mechanism may be responsible for the increased incidence of ovarian cancer in some infertile women (ie, those who failed to conceive despite treatment).
Although polycystic ovary syndrome is associated with hypertension, hyperlipidaemia, and insulin resistance, mortality from cerebrovascular disease is not increased. We previously reported lower downstream resistance in the internal carotid artery in women with polycystic ovary syndrome. This study was designed to assess vascular reactivity by measuring the… (More)
