ABSTRACT

Insight into the Sex Differences in COVID-19 Patients: What Are the Possible Causes?   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Abstract: "Studies have reported a sex bias in case fatalities of COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] patients.Moreover, it is observed that men have a higher risk of developing a severe form of the disease compared to women, highlighting the importance of disaggregated data of male and female COVID-19 patients. On the other hand, other factors (eg, hormonal levels and immune functions) also need to be addressed due to the effects of sex differences on the outcomes of COVID-19 patients. An insight into the underlying causes of sex differences in COVID-19 patients may provide an opportunity for better care of the patients or prevention of the disease."
