Sex biases in cancer and autoimmune disease incidence are correlated across human tissues
Cancer occurs more frequently in men while autoimmune diseases (AIDs) occur more frequently in women. To explore whether these sex biases have a common basis, we collected 170 AID incidence studies from many countries for tissues that have both a cancer type and an AID that arise from that tissue. Analyzing a total of 182 country-specific, tissue-matched cancer-AID incidence rate sex bias data pairs, we find that the sex biases observed in the incidence of AIDs and cancers that occur in thedoi:10.1101/2021.09.07.459207 fatcat:sxebnw3w35hadjnculng3j6d6i
