In selecting the articles for this Update, we systematically reviewed the literature and consulted our colleagues to identify important papers on women's health published in 2000. We critically examined the content and methods of the studies identified and selected 10 articles that had potential to affect clinical practice and reflected a broad range of topics pertinent to women's health. These articles cover six areas: issues affecting women of reproductive age, breast cancer treatment, hormone replacement therapy, osteoporosis, cancer screening, and sexual dysfunction.
Important articles of significance for women of reproductive age included an examination of the significance of asymptomatic bacteriuria in young sexually active women, an analysis of factors involved in delayed access to HIV care, and an assessment of the association between oral contraceptive use and breast cancer risk in patients with a family history of breast cancer.
