Today's researchers are exploring caloric restriction, cell-based therapies, hormonal therapies, and genetic manipulations. So far, caloric restriction has the soundest basis, and estrogen replacement is among the interventions most widely used. As the human genome is studied, treatments with genetic mechanisms move all the closer to becoming reality.

Randomized trial of estrogen plus progestin for secondary prevention of coronary heart disease in postmenopausal women. Heart and Estrogen/progestin Replacement Study (HERS) Research Group.
Treatment with oral conjugated equine estrogen plus medroxyprogesterone acetate did not reduce the overall rate of CHD events in postmenopausal women with established coronary disease and the treatment did increase the rate of thromboembolic events and gallbladder disease. Expand
