(Sgd) Bids and Awards Committee

          In line with the growing number of transgenders in the country who are currently taking self-prescribed hormone replacement therapy, the Department of Science and Technology through the Philippine Council for Health Research and Development (DOST-PCHRD) has approved a grant for the study entitled “Clinical and Metabolic Profile of Male-to-Female Transgender in Zamboanga City”.

          Dr. Alex Y. Pang, Jr., researcher and medical resident of Zamboanga City Medical Center, said that the study aims to increase awareness not only among male to female transsexuals, but also among health practitioners on the effects of taking self-prescribed cross-sex hormone therapy. The treatment of such individuals to acquire the physical appearance of other sex is through hormonal treatment or surgical manipulation. The study will also determine the characteristics of transgender currently or previously on cross-sex hormonal treatment.
