Women in Clinical Trials

Clinical trials are designed to generate data on the safety and efficacy of biomedical or behavioral interventions, including new treatments such as drugs and medical devices.

The inclusion of women in clinical trials and all clinical research is essential to account for sex differences in drug and device safety and effectiveness.

WomenHeart advocates for the inclusion of women in cardiovascular research in order to improve the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of heart disease in women.
