Sex could play a role in type 2 diabetes treatment
In health research, most preliminary studies in animals only examine effects of drug treatment in one sex, assuming that males and females will have few differences in how a drug works. But when it comes to diseases closely related to the role of hormones, such as diabetes, should these studies continue to be tied to only one sex? IRCM researcher Jennifer Estall, PhD, and her student Aurèle Besse-Patin aim to answer this question.
