Hello ! Yes ! I have a question ! ///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
Why does Spaulding Clinical always make it there priority to give the larger compensation studies to men ?
Like for instance this study we have here :
You all ignore the fact that the women request the larger compensation around September 27th 2016. Why does Spaulding clinical always give the larger compensation studies to the men and not he women ?
If it makes you feel any better, the surgically sterile requirement was racist against most men too. By the way, did you get the thread title from the show "Married With Children"? I seem to recall soing like that on it. Either way, it made me smile, good work!
If I was castrated to get into the study, I dont think I'd have as much care about money anymore.

I am new to Phase 1 clinical trials so I am trying to learn as much as I can .
Location: Florida I mainly do: Healthy Studies # of studies I have done: 3 A little about me: I am just getting started in clinical trials . Became unemployed and was doing small outpatient studies until someone told me about Covance and it has ed up a new world of making money.
So I am trying to do more inpatient studies and am hoping to do even more next year.

Actually men who have had a vasectomy have it made. In most studies there are only a few men because of that reason. So when a study needs men and women there are always too many women which is great for you guys you don't usually get sent home. The last study I was in was all women, one guy started but got let go after the urine drug test. So men with vasectomies rejoice:) My saving grace was menopause.
Yeah women are at a bigger disadvantage as far as this goes, many studies, especially with a drug they don't know a lot about, they are really afraid of soing hideous and unspeakable coming out of a woman's womb if she gets knocked up while taking the drug. They make the men swear to use double contraceptive od, but they are more worried about the women. I have seen many studies where they are really having problems getting enough women, and sometimes they require any women to be incapable of spawning rugrats, or they just say men only in the study. If you're a woman who is certifiably no longer fertile it can be an asset for getting into studies; of course you might also have to worry about aging out of some studies...
I didn't think women were a race. Nevertheless the real reason why most clinical trials are conducted on men is because almost every single lab rat is male. As in the real rats/guinea pigs/dogs etc (animal studies). Researchers avoided using female animals for fear that their reproductive cycles and hormone fluctuations would confound the results of delicately calibrated experiments. More research is being conducted on both sexes because females generally have more side effects than males. The over-reliance on male animals and cells in preclinical research obscures key sex differences that could guide clinical studies and may harm females. Women will and still are often underrepresented in clinical trials carried out by drug companies and medical device manufacturers because putting female subjects in your experiment increases the variety in the results, no doubt slowing the march to get drugs onto the market and making money.
