Experimental testosterone patch shows promise for treating diminished sexual function in surgically menopausal women
According to a recent study, an experimental testosterone patch offers new hope for women who suffer from diminished sexual function as a result of surgical menopause (removal of the ovaries and uterus). Glenn Braunstein, M.D., Chair of the Department of Medicine at Cedars Sinai Medical Center, presented the findings at the Endocrine Society Meeting in San Diego earlier this month. This is the first-ever study conducted with a testosterone skin patch to treat sexual problems in surgically menopausal women, and these preliminary results indicate that transdermal testosterone is both beneficial and well tolerated in these women.

Researchers at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center present first documentation of man-made chemical contaminants in the amniotic fluid of unborn babies
Scientists from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles and the University of Calgary in Alberta, Canada, will present on Monday, June 14, findings of a study that for the first time has detected and measured contaminants from certain pesticides and industrial chemicals in the amniotic fluid of unborn babies. This study was not designed to determine whether exposure to these contaminants produces ill effects on fetuses or newborns. Instead, it is seen as a first step in a long-term process of identifying contaminants and later assessing their potential impact.

Cedars-Sinai Medical Center study identifies for first time a molecular mechanism behind hormonal response to stress
A two-year study led by Shlomo Melmed, M.D., of Cedars-Sinai Medical Center has identified for the first time a molecular mechanism that transduces (translates and conveys) stress signals from the brain to other parts of the body after physical or psychological trauma. This discovery will provide a tool for researchers studying the endocrine responses that modulate
