New study to offer cure for Menopause

Promising evidence found from study

Advances could help reverse the condition which primarily occurs between the age of 49 and 52.

A new study observed the possibility of developing synthetic ovaries to treat menopause and post-menopausal symptoms.

Hormone replacement therapy can help manage menopause symptoms but the HRTs showed an increased risk of heart ailments, cancer and stroke.

Because of this, experts have been seeking alternatives to hormone replacement.

One likelihood is implanting synthetic ovaries which mimic real ovaries and provide the hormones at lower doses. This then makes the menopause symptoms diminish without increasing risk of cancer or heart disease.

Researchers from Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine were able to create biosynthetic ovaries to implant in rats.

The study, published in Nature Communications, showed that the ovaries weren't developing ova.

The treatment is designed to create hormones in a natural way based on the body's needs. The rats with the engineered ovaries were found to have better bone density than the rats that received the equivalent of hormone replacement therapy.

This provides a new avenue which will help women.
