The field of gender-specific medicine examines how normal human
biology and physiology differs between men and women and how the
diagnosis and treatment of disease differs as a function of gender.
This revealing research covers various conditions that
predominantly occur in men as well conditions that predominantly
occur in women. Among the areas of greatest difference are
cardiovascular disease, mood disorders, the immune system, lung
cancer as a consequence of smoking, osteoporosis, diabetes,
obesity, and infectious diseases.
The Second Edition of Principles of Gender-Specific Medicine will
decrease in size from two to one volume and focus on the essentials
of gender-specific medicine. In response to the market as well as
many of the reviewers suggestions, the Editor has eliminated
approximately 55 chapters from the first edition to make the book
more compact and more focused on the essentials of gender-specific
medicine. The content will be completely updated, redundant
sections and chapters will be merged with others that are more
relevant to the current study of sex and gender differences in
human physiology and pathophysiology.
