Hopkins Researchers: Medical Research has Favored Women

Further evidence of bias against men in medical health research was noted in Ed Bartlett's MHA mailing list, message 319. "The journal, Statistics in Medicine, has just published an important article that compares the number of single-sex studies done for men and women, and compares that number with the disease burden faced by both sexes. The study, "Estimation of Gender Bias in Clinical Trials" looks at articles published from 1966-1995. The article...concludes that while women were underrepresented in heart disease trials, men were underrepresented both in cancer and in other trials. The article further abolishes the myth that women were "routinely excluded" from medical research.
