9780123742711: Principles of Gender-Specific Medicine

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.

Review:

Reviews of the First Edition:
"The book will benefit primary care practitioners and physicians who manage chronic conditions. By bringing the information together, Legato sets the stage for the future of an exciting and rich new field...Some chapters can serve as independent monographs, and all seem to use current references and reflect a good review of the pertinent literature. Some chapters recommend sources for additional reading. In addition, authors identify gaps in the literature and offer recommendations for further investigation. These recommendations are among the best features of the textbook...We commend the editor, section editors, and chapter authors of this wonderful textbook. Principles of Gender-Specific Medicine has the potential to change the minds of those who have struggled to understand what "gender-based medicine" really means. The bottom line is that this effort has created a broad range of research opportunities and, consequently, the chance to improve treatment and disease outcomes for all: women, men, the poor, the rich, minorities and non-minorities, and, most important, children--the next generation of men and women."
--Journal of the American Medical Association, 2004;292:2921-2922

"A new field of investigation, education, and clinical practice is to be recognized by all who practice medicine...The information in this textbook can only be found in piecemeal if at all in standard medical textbooks, and we are pleased to know that there is now a text that brings this information together."
--Clinical Applications of Thrombosis/Hemostasis 11(4):500, 2005
