ABSTRACT
The article reports on the British Menopause Society's satellite symposium at the Eight European Congress on Menopause held in London, England on May 2009. One of the speakers, Professor Richard Farmer asserted that the wider uptake of screening by mammography is the greatest influence on the decline in breast cancer rates. Professor David Barlow of the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) looked at the possibility of using hormone therapy in the prevention of osteoporotic fractures in high-risk subjects.
