From: Sex hormones and gene expression signatures in peripheral blood from postmenopausal women - the NOWAC postgenome study

HT type Total sample N Single users1 N Number of genes FDR <0.25
HT all types 52 23 5(9)2
E2 or E2/P systemic 32 15 33
E2 systemic 9 7 10
Tibolone 10 2 400

Thyroxine 20 5 8
Non-users 98 98  
  1. 1 Users of other medication excluded.
  2. 2 FDR <0.28, 5 genes with FDR <0.25
  3. 3 All tibolone users were included in the analysis; there were 58 genes with FDR <0.50
