Title "Endogenous sex hormones as risk factors for dementia in elderly men and women"
  "Interactions between breast-feeding, specific parental atopy, and sex on development of asthma and atopy"
  "Dynamic hyperinflation with bronchoconstriction: differences between obese and nonobese women with asthma"
Abstract "to determine the relationship of aeroallergen sensitization to age, sex, ethnicity"
  "we sought to study the interrelations of allergy markers and FEV(1) in relation to asthma and sex"
  "the results were similar among both men and women"
  "among white patients, adherence was significantly lower for women when compared with men."
  "sex and age modified the patterns of concordance of high IgE levels, (...) with the greatest overlap in male children and the lowest in male adults"
  "independent risk factors for death were age, male gender (...)"
  "there were minor differences in the impact of parental disease (...) between boys and girls; interactions between parental disease and the child's allergic sensitization or gender were not statistically significant"
Text Methods: "To examine whether effect modification was present by age cohort, sex, or level of cognitive test score at first examination, three stratified Cox proportional hazards models were calculated (...)." The results for men and women were presented separately in a table.
  Results: "To see whether the relation of conscientiousness to AD varied by sex, we repeated the original model with a term for the interaction of conscientiousness and sex. There was no evidence of an interaction of conscientiousness with sex in this model or with age or education in separate subsequent analyses (data not shown)."
  Results: "This analysis was repeated in people with depression; with the limitation due to loss of power, in this subgroup gender emerged as an important risk factor, with men having a threefold increase in mortality rate compared to women (HR, 3.30; 95% CI, 1.53 to 10.35) (...)."
