The incidence of repetitive motion disorders is increasing. Numerous studies have indicated that the incidence in females exceeds that in males. Some of the evidence regarding gender related factors in tendon biology is discussed and new data related to the regulation of gene expression in an animal model of tendon overuse, the determination of sex hormone receptors in tendons, and the influence of pregnancy associated factors on gene expression in four different tendons is provided… CONTINUE READING
