Could menopause drug ease misery of hot flushes?

Each year, around 1.5million women experience menopausal symptoms, including 400,000 who suffer them to a troublesome extent. But many avoid hormone replacement therapy because it has been linked to an increased risk of breast cancer and blood clots.

Now, a study has found that a new drug was able to reduce the number of women suffering seven or more hot flushes a day by as much as 73%.

The new drug compound, called MLE4901, tested on women who suffered severe flushes, works by targeting receptors in the brain, blocking a chemical called neurokinin B (NKB).

Dr Chris says the drug could be available in five years' time.
