Abstract

To summarize, the overwhelming conclusion of the participants was that relatively little is known about respiratory health and disease in women. Much work will be required to obtain even the most basic information upon which hypotheses for future research can be developed and to determine whether pulmonary biology differs between men and women and between women of various ages. The many recommendations and suggestions generated at the workshop should serve to underscore the unique opportunities for research in the field of respiratory health of women.
