Study Review

This study at Rush University Medical Center, in Chicago, is investigating what type of bacteria can be found in the intestines and the way the bacteria metabolize estrogen and other female hormones. The researchers wanted to enroll 30 volunteers. The Call to Action for this study was sent to Army of Women members on October 9, 2009. When the researchers closed enrollment on January 31, 2012, the Army of Women had provided them with 342 women who were interested in enrolling in the study.
