It's a Man's Man's Man's World – What's needed for better CVD drugs for women?

This article was originally published in Scrip

Executive Summary

Each year over 8.6 million women die of heart disease and stroke, making heart disease the number one cause of death for women globally, but while men and woman are equally affected by cardiovascular disease (CVD) the drugs on the market are largely designed from clinical studies testing efficacy and dosage for men. What's more, in the US at least, adverse drug reactions occur approximately twice as often in women as in men.
