Sexe differences do matter, also with medicines

Women and men are equal, but logically they are not the same.

Or to put it a rather bluntly, as neuro scientist Danielle Posthuma from Vrije Universiteit Medical Center did: ‘Human females are genetically more related to female Chimpansees than to human men….’

The physiological differences between women and men also have an impact on the way how their bodies react onto fysiological active substances like medicines. More specifically; sexe differences can have a serious effect on the farmaco kinetic and farmaco dynamic aspects of a medicine. At this present day the largest differences are found on medicines which are active in the Central Nervous Systeem.
