Medical research has focused on males
from San Francisco Chronicle
Most of the early lab and animal research in medicine is done on males, and with almost no consideration given to the subtle — and not-so-subtle — differences between male and female biology. True, there have been tremendous advances in studying women's health issues and including women in drug trials and clinical studies. Most of those changes followed a 1993 mandate by the National Institutes of Health that women be included in such studies.
