Sex-based differences in environmental exposures and health

Research efforts are beginning to show that environmental exposures can affect women and men differently. In some cases, differences are due to the fact that one sex has more exposure to a toxin than the other. In many cases, however, it is because men and women's bodies respond differently to a given toxin.

Environmental exposures can have serious consequences including reproductive disorders, immune dysfunction, cancer, and behavioral and developmental disorders. Discussions will include issues of sex differences in toxicology research, the design and conduct of epidemiologic studies to determine sex differences in biological responses to environmental substances, and the latest findings on how environmental exposures can impact human health.

Held at the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences in Research Triangle Park, NC, the conference will be available via Webcast at www.womens-health.org, where there is a link to the Webcast section. Please note: Viewing the Webcast requires QuickTime 6.
