This paper reviews gender representation in biomedical treatment and psychosocial studies published in a single year, using an established methodology to directly compare current findings with prior research. Results indicate that women remain under-represented in biomedical treatment studies of sex-nonspecific cancers; men are no longer under-represented in psychosocial studies overall, and their inclusion in studies of feelings/emotions and social relationships has increased, whereas women are better represented in studies of physical/functional ability than in prior years.
