To explore the effects of testosterone on cognitive performance in healthy postmenopausal women. Open-label pilot study. Nine postmenopausal women on non-oral hormone replacement therapy, aged 47-60 years received transdermal testosterone spray for 26 weeks. A control group of 30 women provided normative data for comparison. Scores from a computeri...

Given the emerging evidence that osteoarthritis (OA) may have a vascular basis, the aim of this study was to determine whether serum lipids were associated with change in knee cartilage, presence of bone marrow lesions (BMLs) at baseline and the development of new BMLs over a 2-year period in a population of pain-free women in mid-life. One hundred...
Article
Bone marrow lesions (BML) have been implicated in the pathogenesis of osteoarthritis, yet their exact role, etiology, and natural history remain unclear. The aim of this study was to examine the natural history of BML in a healthy population and identify risk factors associated with their persistence and incidence. One hundred forty-eight healthy m...

Mental rotation is a task known to activate the parietal cortical regions. The present study aimed to investigate whether there is differential activation of regions within the parietal lobe and to reveal functional subspecialisation of this region by examining the effects of increasing angle of rotation. Functional magnetic resonance imaging was p...

Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) and its sulfate DHEAS, which are the most abundant steroids in women, decline with age. We have shown association between low sexual function and low circulating DHEAS levels in women. The aim of this study was to evaluate whether restoration of circulating DHEA levels in postmenopausal women to the levels seen in youn...
Article
The aim of this study was to evaluate the safety of 52 weeks of DHEA 50mg daily oral dose given to postmenopausal women with low libido to improve sexual function. 93 postmenopausal women were enrolled in a 52-week randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial and received either DHEA 50mg or placebo (PL) daily. The effects of DHEA versus plac...
Article
To report on the issues encountered in the recruitment of healthy naturally menopausal women in the community to a randomized placebo-controlled trial of dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) therapy for treatment of loss of sexual desire. Recruitment of women was achieved by advertising and media publicity. We have reported on the method by which women in...

Although cartilage loss occurs with advancing age and is a hallmark of OA, the factors that affect cartilage change are not well established. The aim of this study was to explore the determinants of change in patella cartilage volume over 2 yrs among healthy middle-aged women with no clinical knee OA. One hundred and forty-eight women with no clini...
Article
Bone marrow lesions (BML) are important in established knee osteoarthritis, predicting pain and progression of disease. Whether BML are also associated with longitudinal changes in knee structure in an asymptomatic population is unknown. 148 healthy pain-free women in middle age with no history of knee injury or clinical knee osteoarthritis who had...
