"Bio" (life)-"identical" (same) refers to replacing the exact shape and structure of a hormone that nature had originally designed for humans, but whose levels have declined with aging. This is in contrast to many "patented" hormones commonly prescribed in the U.S. that are not Bio-Identical, including those that were used in the U.S. Women's Health Initiative Study (PremPro or Premarin plus Provera).
Premarin is derived from the urine of pregnant horses (PREgand MARe urINE) and contains equilin (horse estrogen) while Provera is a synthetic progestin with extra attachments on the progesterone rendering it non-Bio-Identical. An increased risk of breast cancer was found in 8,506 women enrolled in the U.S.
Women's Health Initiative Study, and they were using Non-Bio-Identical estrogen (horse derived Permarin) plus Non-Bio-Identical progestin (Provera). Those results were first reported in 2002.
