Studies in mice have shown that different pain pathways are involved in females and males. This could offer hope for more effective treatment of pain in humans. Award-winning science writer Amber Dance explains how gender is a determining factor in the pain response of rodents, as well as humans. More research is needed, but understanding these differences shows promise for the future of pain control and drug treatment in general. The future may find drugs targeted specifically to a person’s gender, age and hormone levels.
