2011 (English)In: European Heart Journal, ISSN 0195-668X, E-ISSN 1522-9645, Vol. 32, no 11, 1362-1368 p.Article, review/survey (Refereed) Published
A recent report of the EuroHeart project has shown that women are still underrepresented in many cardiovascular clinical trials, while important gender differences are present within most areas of heart disease. As the burden of cardiovascular disease is increasing in middle-aged women relative to men, a more profound understanding is needed of the fundamental biological differences that exist between men and women. In the current review, we aim to address the need for more explanatory sex-specific cardiovascular research to be able to adapt existing guidelines for a better heart health in women.
