Abstract:  This represents part two of a two-part article on the topic of gender bias within hormone replacement therapy and the well-orchestrated attempt by the pharmaceutical industry to eliminate bioidentical hormones, as well as to downplay the important role of compounding pharmacies in fulfilling the needs of women in this longstanding gender gap. Part one of this two-part article was published in the November/December 2020 issue of the International Journal of Pharmaceutical Compounding. That article discussed two of the four most prevalent reasons for this bias, Protecting the Bottom Line and Lack of Patent Protection. This article concludes this discussion with reasons three and four, Exclusion of Women in Medical Research and Fear and Retribution.
