|Is this study IRB-Approved?||Yes|
|Date of NEXT IRB Review:||10/15/2022|
|Full Study Name:||Impact of estradiol on endothelial function in peri-menopausal women|
|Short Study Name:||Impact of estrogen on blood vessel function in peri-menopausal women|
|College / Affiliation||College of Health Sciences|
|Relevant Research Categories||Cardiovascular (Heart and Circulation), Healthy Volunteers, Women’s Health|
|Location of Study:||University of Delaware STAR Campus, 540 S College Ave, Newark, DE 19713|
|Description of Study:||
The endothelium is the inner lining of the blood vessels, which releases substances to help control blood vessel function. With advancing age, blood vessel function declines and cardiovascular disease risk increases. It has recently been shown that mortality from cardiovascular disease is increased in women aged 35-54 years, which is the time of when women are approaching and transitioning through menopause. It is unclear what contributes to this increased mortality rate, and is a significant problem for women’s health. The goal of this study is to determine how estrogen impacts blood vessel function.
|Will participants be compensated for participation?|
|Inclusion and Exclusion Criteria:||
We will recruit Peri-menopausal women (ages 40-58) that will be classified as either Early Peri or Late Peri based on changes in menstrual cycle length.
