Meridian is now enrolling postmenopausal women age 40 to 65 for a clinical trial in Norfolk. This study of for an investigational medication for hot flashes and/or night sweats. Vasomotor symptoms (e.g., hot flashes) occur most often in the late menopausal transition and early post-menopause.
Estimates suggest that about 75% of women who are 50 or older will experience vasomotor symptoms. Most experience these symptoms for about two to five years, although at least 10% suffer for more than 10 years. VMS can contribute towards physical and psycho-social impairment, with a consequent reduction in health related quality of life, and are one of the main reasons why women may seek medical care for the menopause.
