Special Issue Introduction
Delineating disparities by sex, gender, and reproductive status and their clinical implications is crucial to establishing an approach toward precision medicine in metabolic disorders and improving long-term health outcomes and QOL in this obesity pandemic. This Special Issue broadly calls for original and review articles addressing disparities by sex, reproductive status, and reproductive health in dysmetabolic organ damage, premature aging, and declining functional reserve. We welcome experimental, translational, clinical, epidemiological, and computational modeling studies, artificial intelligence works using animal data, or electronic health records to this Special Issue, including but not limited to:
1. Sex differences in organ damage, senescence, and functional reserve and complications (including tumorigenesis);
a. The impact of menopause, hypogonadism, polycystic ovary syndrome, premature ovarian failure, and synthetic hormone use – mechanistic as well as epidemiological approaches.
b. Sex-specific role of immune responses/inflammation in organ damage throughout the lifecycle.
2. Sex differences in tissue repair/regeneration, specifically addressing sex differences and sex hormone regulation in tissue repair/remodeling;
3. Sex-specific therapeutic approaches (diets, exercise, supplements, and pharmaceuticals) or sex differences in treatment responses includes but is not limited to NAFLD, endothelial dysfunction, muscles, cardiovascular disease, and kidney disease;
