About this study
Blood pressure rises in postmenopausal (PM) women and may be caused by widespread microvascular vasodilator dysfunction in conjunction with increased efferent sympathetic vasoconstrictor nerve activity. The goal of this study is to measure the effects of regular physical activity on vasodilator effects of acute administration of estrogen in postmenopausal women.
Participant eligibility includes age, gender, type and stage of disease, and previous treatments or health concerns. Guidelines differ from study to study, and identify who can or cannot participate.
