paraoxonase 1 is involved to prevent LDL and HDL oxidation,so increase of it's activity leads to lower risk of coronary heart disease.In postmenopausal women ,we have decrease of paraoxonase1 activity and soy proteins may increase paraoxonase1 activity
In a double blind clinical randomised clinical trial with parallel design this study was done.52 postmenopausal women were randomly assigned to 50 g/d soy protein or placebo for 10 weeks.serum lipoproteins and pon1 activity were measured at baseline and 10th week.There were significant increase in PON! activity and significant decrease in LDL-C,LDL-C/HDL-C,TC/HDL-C and TG/HDL-C in soy group compare to placebo group.

Reduction of bone mass without alteration in the composition of bone, leading to fractures. Primary osteoporosis can be of two major types: postmenopausal osteoporosis (OSTEOPOROSIS, POSTMENOPAUSAL) and age-related or senile osteoporosis.
A gonadal stromal neoplasm composed only of THECA CELLS, occurring mostly in the postmenopausal OVARY. It is filled with lipid-containing spindle cells and produces ESTROGENS that can lead to ENDOMETRIAL HYPERPLASIA; UTERINE HEMORRHAGE; or other malignancies in postmenopausal women and sexual precocity in girls. When tumors containing theca cells also contain FIBROBLASTS, they are identified as thecoma-fibroma tumors with less active hormone production.
The rate at which oxygen is used by a tissue; microliters of oxygen STPD used per milligram of tissue per hour; the rate at which oxygen enters the blood from alveolar gas, equal in the steady state to the consumption of oxygen by tissue metabolism throughout the body. (Stedman, 25th ed, p346)
