SGWHC Update

August 2014

It’s been a busy summer for the SGWHC team!  Recently, both the NIH Office of Women’s Health and the FDA have been paying close attention to the need to stratify studies by sex, and pay attention to sex differences in pharmaceuticals.  And we applaud them for their timely insight.  Scanning recent literature shows that sex and gender differences are being reported more often in medical research, so we have more and more articles to post on to SGWHC.  This month, we have posted many articles that might be of interest to our subscribers.

The Case for Sex and Gender-Specific Medicine is an invited summary article on sex differences in Cardiology by two of the most respected voices in the field, Noel Bairey-Merz, MD and Vera Regitz-Zagrosek, MD.  An interesting case presentation about Traumatic Brain Injury in women by Emily Gudbranson and Esther Choo, MD MPH postulates that Progesterone might be the reason that women recover from TBI more rapidly than men.  Statin Drug Lawsuits spotlights the FDA label change on statins, noting the need to screen for diabetes in those taking these cholesterol lowering drugs.

Make sure to head over to SGWHC to check out some other informational articles covering a variety of topics from preventive aspirin use to depression in opposite sex twins. Make sure to also use the icons below to keep up with us on Social Media.
