Autoimmune Diseases Study Shows Differences Between Men And Women

lated differences in disease course: Autoimmune diseases affect men and women differently. Women with multiple sclerosis begin to show symptoms earlier than do men with the disease. At the same time, the disease seems to progress faster in men than in women. Women tend to develop lupus during their childbearing years while men are affected much later in life. Whitacre's task force suggests that these differences may be useful in deciding on a patient's treatment for the diseases.

"Our primary goal is to increase researchers' awareness of these differences and suggest that they consider gender differences in designing new studies," Whitacre said.

"Earlier research certainly could have been better." The questions posed by new studies should be broadened to include a focus on gender differences, she said, adding that funding for these studies is available from the National Institutes of Health and the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.

Researchers from the National Institutes of Health, Canada's Hospital Notre-Dame, Scripps Research Institute, University of Arizona, University of Southern California, University of Washington, University of California at Los Angeles, Columbia University, New York University, Massachusetts General Hospital, Allegheny University of the Health Sciences and the National Multiple Sclerosis Society participated in the study.
