When Estrogen Helps You Remember.
Kristine Yaffee, the primary author of this study, published in Neurology (2000;54:1948-53), doesn't suggest that women go out and have their APOE genotype tested just yet. What she does suggest is that we wait for more information before jumping on the estrogen-for-memory bandwagon. We also need to know why some women didn't receive any benefit from the estrogen.
