Woman-centered information on menopause for health care providers: findings from the Midlife Women's Health Survey

Health Care for Women International
P K Mansfield, A M Voda


Despite their growing numbers, midlife women continue to feel marginalized by a health care system that is unresponsive to their needs for current information about the perimenopausal experience and for egalitarian, woman-centered care. In this article, the authors call upon physicians, health educators, nurses, counselors, and other health providers to meet the consumer needs of this ever-growing clientele. To this end, they provide data-based information derived from the responses of more than 400 middle-aged women from across the United States to annual Midlife Women's Health Surveys from 1990 to 1993. The authors focus on enhancing the sensitivity of health care providers toward their midlife clients by offering data describing the normal menopausal transition and the feelings and concerns of this group.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.


Microbicides are products that can be applied to vaginal or rectal mucosal surfaces with the goal of preventing, or at least significantly reducing, the transmission of sexually transmitted infections. Here is the latest research on microbicides.
