Menopause Studies

Do you have multiple hot flashes per day?

 

UCSF’s Women’s Health researchers are running a study to better understand how to treat menopausal hot flash symptoms.

 

1. What are we studying?

 

The FRAN Study (Flushing Reduction Associated with Nitrates) is testing how well a nitrate skin patch works to reduce hot flashes.

(We are doing this by running a randomized clinical trial of a transdermal nitrate patch compared to placebo women with menopausal hot flash symptoms.)

 

2. What does this involve?

 

Participants will visit our clinic 6 times over 16 weeks. We have offices in San Francisco, Oakland, and Fremont.

 

You may receive up to $100 in gift or debit cards and help with parking costs. 

 

3. Are you eligible?

 

    You may be eligible if you are:

  • Are between the ages 40 and 62
  • Have multiple hot flashes per day
  • Do not have diabetes or cardiovascular disease
  • Are willing to wear a nitrate patch or a placebo patch in a randomized trial
