Menopause Strategies: Finding Lasting Answers for Symptoms and Health

Susan D Reed, MD, MPH

As part of the Menopause Strategies: Finding Lasting Answers for Symptoms and Health (MsFLASH) Clinical Trials network, this work will prepare for a large multicenter trial with recruitment starting in 2016. The trial will compare two common treatments, a vaginal hormone pill and an over-the-counter gel, with placebo, and evaluate their effects on bothersome vaginal symptoms and sexual function. In addition we will create a biorepository of specimens for future translational and mechanistic research on the etiology of bothersome postmenopausal vaginal symptoms. We aim to transform evidence-based information available to aging women navigating this life stage.
