Clinical Trial 44115

New Port Richey, FL 34652


Summary:

This study is for women in menopause with hot flashes

Age: 40 Years to 65 Years 

This study is "double-blinded." That means that the study participants and the study doctors do not know who takes which of the study treatments


At weeks 2 and 4 and then once a month, the study participants will go the hospital or clinic for a check-up. They will be asked about medications, side effects and how they feel. Other checks will include physical exam and vital signs (heart rate, temperature and blood pressure). Blood and urine will be collected for laboratory tests. At some study visits, study participants will complete questionnaires that are about their quality of life.

At the first and last study visits, they will have a dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry (DXA for short) test done. To measure bone loss in the hips and spine, DXA creates pictures of the inside of these areas with low-dose x-rays. (The dose is approximately one-tenth of the amount of a normal chest x-ray.) Study participants who still have their uterus will have 2 more tests done at the first and last study visits. One of the 2 tests is endometrial biopsy. This test involves removing a small amount of tissue from the inside lining of the uterus. The tissue is then checked under a microscope. The other test is transvaginal ultrasound. It uses sound waves to create pictures of the organs in the pelvis. The sound waves are transmitted by a probe (transducer), which is placed inside the vagina. Study participants may have a screening mammogram done at the first and/or last study visit. A mammogram is an x-ray picture of the breasts used to screen for breast cancer. Study participants who did not have this test done in the last 12 months will have it done at the first study visit.
