Hyperandrogenemia and Altered Day-night LH Pulse Patterns

This is a randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blinded crossover study to test the following hypothesis: In mid- to late pubertal girls with hyperandrogenism (HA), acute progesterone suppression of waking LH pulse frequency is greater after 2 weeks of spironolactone pretreatment compared to after 2 weeks of placebo pretreatment. We will only study ...

Phase N/A

Does Vitamin D Break the Vicious Circle of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome of Insuline Resistance ?

Research question: In PCOS patients, is there any effect of vitamin D supplementation therapy on plasma concentrations of adipokines (ghrelin, resistin and adiponectin), follistatin and activins? Research hypothesis: There is a significant effect of vitamin D supplementation therapy on plasma concentrations of adipokines (ghrelin, resistin and adiponectin), follistatin and activin.

Letrozole in Clomiphene Resistant Infertile Women With Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

Polycystic ovary syndrome accounts for the vast majority of anovulatory symptoms and hyperandrogenism in women. The diagnosis of Polycystic ovary syndrome has life-long implications, with increased risk for infertility, metabolic syndrome, and type 2 diabetes mellitus, and possibly for cardiovascular disease and endometrial carcinoma. Polycystic ovary syndrome is diagnosed in ...

Phase

Acupuncture or Metformin for Insulin Resistance in Women With PCOS

Specific Aims The purpose of the study is to perform a randomized controlled trial of women with PCOS, comparing the effectiveness of lifestyle management alone, and in combination with acupuncture or metformin treatment on whole body glucose homeostasis, with the ultimate goal to prevent the development of type 2 diabetes. ...

Phase

Study to Assess Potential Impairments in Estradiol Augmentation of Gonadotropin Secretion in Polycystic Ovary Syndrome

This is a two-group controlled study to test the following hypothesis: compared to body mass index (BMI)-matched normal controls, women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) will demonstrate blunted LH responses to preovulatory estradiol concentrations. We will study both normally-cycling controls and women with PCOS. We aim to recruit BMI-matched pairs ...

Phase N/A

Liver and Fat Regulation in Overweight Adolescent Girls

Hepatic glucose release will be assessed with a stable isotope glycerol tracer, lipolysis with a glycerol tracer, and hepatic de novo lipogenesis with an acetate tracer. Data will be collected fasting and after a glucose challenge. The degree of hepatic steatosis and abdominal fat partitioning will be assessed with Magnetic ...

Phase

Androgen Responses to hCG and Ovarian Morphology in PCOS

50-100 PCOS and 50-100 normal women matched for age (<37 yr) and BMI (<35) will be studied. PCOS and normal women in the mid-follicular phase (day 5-7) of the menstrual cycle will receive an iv injection of hCG as previously described (see Experimental Design). Basal and stimulated blood samples will ...

Phase N/A

Taichi for Overweight/Obese Adolescent and Young Women With Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)

The present study is a randomized pilot study, overweight/obese adolescent and young PCOS subjects will be assigned into two groups: Taichi arm and control arm. Hormonal profile and metabolic profile will be determined.

Phase N/A

Post-Prandial Liver Glucose Metabolism in PCOS

This will be a cross-sectional study with 4 groups of youth. A 6 hour OSTT (Oral Sugar Tolerance Test) with an oral U-C13 glycerol tracer will be paired with nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (NMR) isotopomer analysis of serum samples to describe flux through the hepatic pentose phosphate pathway, TCA cycle ...

Phase N/A
