Summary

With contributions from clinicians and scientists Hormones and Women's Health examines the latest research and its application in clinical and basic science. This book will interest a wide audience concerned with women's health from the viewpoint of endocrinology, gynaecology and general practice and will provide graduate students and practising clinicians in these disciplines with a valuable reference tool. Furthermore, it will alert basic scientists working in these areas to some of the clinical issues which still need to be addressed.
