Men and women experience diseases differently. Yet, even today, most testing done in clinical trials is conducted on men and in preliminary studies, male animals can outnumber females by 5:1.
- Cardiovascular disease is the #1 killer of women; but only 1/3 of clinical trial participants are female.
- 66% percent of Alzheimer’s patients are women; but 66% of the animals used in Alzheimer’s research are male.
- 2X as many women suffer from depression as men; yet fewer than 45% of anxiety and depression studies use female animals.
We need to change this, and we need your help.
We’re on a mission to accelerate women’s health by tacking the medical research disparities that have under-studied women. We’re working to bring parity to health research – including trial research that is equally inclusive of women, preliminary research that includes female animals, and studies that report gender outcomes separately.
