2 p.m. Abstract #3544 Results of hormone replacement study get rapid acceptance. Findings of last year's Women's Health Initiative (WHI) trial that hormone replacement therapy (HRT) with estrogen (E) plus progesterone (P) in post-menopausal women leads to excessive risk of cardiovascular disease is resulting in a "clear global decrease" in the use of HRT, a new study finds.

After controlling for clinical and demographic variables, researchers found daytime sleepiness to be "a significant negative predictor of QOL" in four statistical models studied.
