'Remakable' New Data on Menopausal Hormone Therapy and Breast Cancer Incidence:
The two types of menopausal therapy-estr Sogen alone (CEE:conjugated equine estrogens) and estrogen plus progestin (CEE plus medroxyprogesterone acetate [MPA]) have opposite effects on breast cancer incidence that persist long after treatment has been stopped.
