This report aims to show the results of clinical trials (CT) in currently used drugs based on women's studies. The authors reviewed the historical background of this issue, CT policies and gender differences and analysis. Finally, they pose as a project the drafting of some recommendations that clinical trials of drugs in Spain should meet from a gender perspective.
