41 Journal of Women's Health

The first thing that greeted me in this first issue was a three page spread for Premarin, advocating its use in preventing osteoporosis, created from natural sources, i.e., mare's urine. Things have changed since 1992 when the first issue of this still published medical journal appeared. Women's health as an area of special concern was still relatively new in 1992 and since there really is a Mary Ann Liebert behind the Mary Ann Liebert Inc. Publisher, this was probably a good match for her and the Society for the Advancement of Women's Health Research.

"Why a Journal of Women's Health? The answer is quite simple. It is time, and the time is now. . . The study of gender differences in physiologic response as a means to understanding basic biologic mechanisms has been virtually ignored." from editorial.
Current cover very similar to first in 1992

Office of Research on Women’s Health (ORWH) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has established these specific focus areas, which were published in the Journal of Women's Health Volume 15, Number 3, 2006 which should guarantee many articles for publication in this journal.

• Sex-specific responses to environmental conditions
• Occupational influences on the health of women
• Immune-mediated inflammatory cascade and how it is influenced by the culture and the products women use
• Sex differences in pain and pain relief
• Obesity, especially life elements that cause women to overeat
• Health of women in special sets of environmental circumstances, such as women prisoners, rural populations, minorities
• The genesis of the sex-specific prevalence of some diseases
• The influence of the sex chromosomes on molecular biology
• Age differences in responses to hormones
• Remedies for the symptoms of menopause
• The function of sex hormones in the immune, nervous, and cardiovascular systems
• Analysis, by population groups, of the data from the Women’s Health Initiative (WHI)
