Postmenopausal hormone therapy: an Endocrine Society scientific statement.
A scholarly review of the published literature on menopausal hormonal therapy (MHT), make scientifically valid assessments of the available data, and grade the level of evidence available for each clinically important endpoint to arrive at major conclusions.
