Analysis of Metabolites Reveals Need for Gender-Specific Therapies, Helmholtz Zentrum Munchen Study


8/16/2011 7:55:03 AM

Scientists at the Helmholtz Zentrum München have agreed in a study that will be published on August 11 in the open-access journal PLoS Genetics, that there is a need for gender-specific therapies after analyzing the metabolic profile of blood serum revealed significant differences in metabolites between men and women. Due to significant differences in both, male and female metabolisms, gender-specific therapies may be needed for some diseases. A population-based study including 3,000 volunteers revealed existing differences for 101 of the 131 metabolites. All differences belonged to the lipid and amino acid species.
