Sex, gender and medical drugs
Sex, gender and medical drugs is a knowledge database with structured information on sex and gender aspects on drug treatment. The information is aimed towards healthcare personal. The texts are based on the generic name and linked to the Swedish brand names to enable searches based on both generics and trade names. The purpose of the web site is to improve drug treatment by providing information on whether drug choice or drug dosing need to consider the patient's sex.
The content of this knowledge database is under construction. Today, only a selected number of medical drugs such as cardiovascular drugs, anticoagulants, antiepileptics, and antidiabetic agents are included. The database is continuously expanded to include more drugs. It also is primarily targeted to Swedish medical practitioners, although some content is also available in English.
