Our objective was to investigate the effects of exercise on premenopausal estrogen metabolism pertinent to breast cancer risk. METHODS Sedentary,(More)
We studied the effect of the opiate antagonist naloxone on the peripheral GH response to the alpha 2-receptor agonist clonidine in eight normally cycling women during the mid-luteal phase. In a randomized, double-blind, cross-over design, each subject received clonidine and naloxone on one occasion and clonidine and placebo on the other. In seven of eight(More)
