Manuscript Topics
Gender hormones regulate structure and function of many tissue and organ systems. Sexual dimorphism is defined as “the differences in appearance between males and females of the same species, such as in colour, shape, size, and structure”. Some studies have reported that gender hormones affect renal morphology and physiology, and gender differences exist in the prevalence and prognosis of renal diseases. However, there are inconsistent results across study outcomes. There are also limited data available on this issue in humans. Further research is therefore needed to better understand the effect of gender on kidney. The papers in this special issue will focus on recent advances in gender differences in kidney function and health outcomes.
