Society for Women's Health Research News Service to provide series on women and pharmacology

Washington, DC Beginning June 24 and continuing through September 19, the Society for Women's Health Research News Service will distribute a series of articles on women and pharmacology; the first article covers sex differences and drug metabolism and is available at www.womens-health.org/press/NewsService/pharm.htm. The Women's Health Research News Service specializes in the latest research findings on sex differences in medicine, as well as health issues unique to women. All articles are available at www.womens-health.org/press/NewsService/newsservice.htm and may be received via e-mail every other week by contacting SarahG@womens-health.org.

"There is much confusion over medications in general, particularly for women," said Phyllis Greenberger, MSW, president and CEO of the Society for Women's Health Research. "We hope this series on pharmacology will provide valuable information to the public, especially life-saving information on how drugs, dosage and interactions may affect women."

The seven articles to be distributed throughout Summer 2002 will cover the following topics:

  • June 24: Sex differences and drug metabolism
  • July 11: What are me-too drugs and why are they necessary?
  • July 25: Understanding generics
  • August 8: The risk of heart arrhythmia in women
  • August 22: Women and polypharmacy: The risks of taking multiple drugs
  • September 5: Pharmacogenomics: The future of individualized medicine
  • September 19: What women need to know about herbal supplements

"The most definitive examples of the importance of understanding biological sex differences in drug response are the eight drugs removed from the market in recent years because of excessive harm to women," said Raymond Woosley, MD, PhD, d
