Senator Warren Fighting For Medical Research Equality

Senator Warren Fighting For Medical Research Equality


a little bit more and is going to buy to
ensure that their is equality among both sexes when
it comes to medical research so this is a problem that I did not know existed
until fairly recently but apparently when doctors are
researchers do studies on treatments for certain diseases they will generally use um male patients oh ok or male experimenters up animals like rats or mice for instance
right as a result they usually come up with doses dosages that are specific to males as
opposed to women so I’ll that becomes a problem women are
over prescriber the take doses that are too high for them
and did not get 60 ambien was an example that and always at a doctors realize oh we
gotta lower the dosage because this is way too
high for women now I Elizabeth Warren did speak about that
let’s hear what she had to say gives the NIH puts new regulations in place victim and
their parents miss church BB King big step forward and we don’t good for
legislation the NIH’s I’m reluctant then %uh markets program yeah I’m really
hopeful on its the NIH formed right direction today we
know him prescriptions for sleeping engines that
power calibrated differently for men informant
they aren’t your actually describe differently and
you’re told something different that’s probably just first many go ahead rational we’ve got
to have to research to this really smart because what she’s
doing there as a united states senator is applying subtle pressure the NIH to do the right thing saying hey
look don’t make a step into legislation here you can do it on your own and hopefully they listen to that now
I’m afraid that cancer is a look at that and say of political correctness now we’re going
to do experiments on what female mice but you have to understand
something if women’s bodies react differently than men but it was a very
logical so what’s your answer no I don’t care
about women just do it for a man who cares what are the effects it has on
women to ridiculous answer I don’t know if you
know this but they’re about half the population so it makes sense to make sure that
we’ve got the right dosage is in the rate remained for women as well as much right and it
goes beyond dosages a different diseases impact both
sexes differently so for instance cancer lung
disease anything like that job are lung cancer she’s a depression
all those issues need to be addressed based on the fact that you’re treating so I love
that she’s raising awareness about this and again it was something I was totally
unaware out because I thought hey you know what would researchers do a
study on any type of medication they want a representative sample but apparently that’s not happening and
apparently women were routinely excluded from medical studies before night a 1993
law was passed tying NIH funding to the inclusion of
women and minorities in clinical studies two decades later
research specific to women it’s still all lobbying and that’s
according to a recent studies and reports they barely started addressing this in
1993 and its really powerful where the
assumptions that go into different things right so here probably
largely man during these experiments so they think will obviously remember use males in the subject sprayed and they don’t even think twice about so
weird to me I just on earth I would never think that that
would happen I think that the I don’t think they did
maliciously neither do I do they just had a certain set of assumptions they
never even thought twice about it now when your child on those assumptions
the who once had a folks would say what does this tradition
and this is how we do it if you want me to do it in other ways
portable drives perhaps a more rational way to go is hey that’s a good point maybe we should
challenge those assumptions and traditions et cetera because we’re leaving out half the
population in terms of getting good treatment and health care and likely their
scientists so I hope Press direction they’re gonna go
cuz thats back base right
