The Women's Health Initiative Memory Study (WHIMS) is an ancillary study to the Women's Health Initiative (WHI). WHIMS was designed to determine the effects of Hormone Therapy (HT) on the development and progression of dementia symptoms in postmenopausal women. It is hypothesized that the development of symptoms associated with dementia will be delayed in women who are on active HT, as opposed to placebo, and that HT will delay the progression of symptoms associated with dementia in women with Alzheimer's and all-cause dementia. The development of dementia-related symptoms will be examined with respect to hysterectomy status, type of treatment, age, ethnicity and clinic site.
