Testosterone-regulated genes may affect vaccine-induced immunity

A new study has identified a link between certain genes affected by testosterone and antibody responses to an influenza vaccine. The findings, published in PNAS, suggest that testosterone levels may partially explain why men often have weaker responses to vaccines than women. The study, led by researchers at Stanford University, was supported in part by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.
