Cedars-Sinai researchers participate in study to assess effects of soy-based supplement on symptoms of menopause

such as mood, sexual functioning, and outlook - although the focus is on "vasomotor symptoms," or hot flushes, which are often referred to as hot flashes.

"Hot 'flashes' is clearly the term that most people are comfortable with, although 'flushes' is more technically correct," she said. "It is what actually happens. Women get a vasomotor flush, a dilation of blood vessels. The result is a hot sensation and a red flush in skin color."

Scientists have in recent years begun to evaluate the role of phytoestrogens in the diet. It has been noted, for example, that the prevalence of menopausal symptoms seems to be lower in some parts of the world in which the diet is high in phytoestrogens.

"We know that estrogen levels get very unstable as women approach menopause," said Dr. Revis. "As they go up and down, hot flushes and other symptoms occur. The supplementation of soy-based phytoestrogens is intended to help stabilize those hormonal levels."

Women interested in participating in the four-month study may contact Dr. Revis at 310-423-0526 for details.
