Recent studies have yielded conflicting results as to whether testosterone treatment increases cardiovascular risk and/or slows down the rate of cognitive function decline with age. As a result, two studies (Testosterone Treatment and Cognitive Function in Older Men With Low Testosterone and Age-Associated Memory Impairment; Testosterone Treatment and Coronary Artery Plaque Volume in Older Men With Low Testosterone); were reported on 21 February 2017 in JAMA, which tested the hypotheses as to whether testosterone treatment of older men with low testosterone 1) slows progression of noncalcified coronary artery plaque volume and 2) is associated with improved verbal memory and other cognitive functions and age-associated memory impairment (AAMI).
