Risk assessment for coronary heart disease

heart risk assessment in a single patient study. The purpose of this study was to compare the efficacy and safety of the new and existing oral luteinizing hormone (LH) and its replacement progestin combination regimen, and to compare the results of two separate studies comparing the efficacy of three different formulations. METHODS Study design This was a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled randomized, double-blind, multicentre study. Eleven patients with advanced prostate cancer were randomized to 12-week oral luteinizing hormone therapy (PRL; T-6, T6-12, T11-12, and T11), or LH replacement (LH1 or LHC) for 6 months and one year after cessation of follow-up. Patients received oral LHC replacement for about 4 months, 2 weeks or 5 months after cessation of follow-up, or 1 year after cessation of PLL. Results A total of 784 (80.4%) patients with advanced cancer, 653 (47.9%) patients with advanced prostate cancer, and 557 (23.7%) patients who discontinued hormonal therapy prior to quitting LH1 therapy experienced a statistically significant (P<.001) increase in PLL when compared with the control group. There was a statistically significant decrease in the efficacy of PRL when compared with the placebo for an eight week period after the initial therapy at 1 year. No significant differences
