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

The Genetics of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is one of the most common endocrine disorders in women. Its marked phenotypic variability, puzzling list of associated conditions, and hence potential risk to a woman's health over her lifecycle clearly remain a clinical investigational, genetic, and therapeutic challenge. To a great extent, this variability can ...

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

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

Clomiphene Citrate Stair-Step Protocol

This study is a randomized clinical trial (RCT) will be conducted in Ain Shams University maternity hospital at infertility clinic within a period of 6-8 months. All patient are previously diagnosed as PCOs according to the Rotterdam conference of 2003. All patients will be devided according to computer based program ...

Phase N/A

Letrozole Versus Laparoscopic Ovarian Drilling in Polycystic Ovary Syndrome

Polycystic ovary syndrome is the major cause of anovulatory infertility. Clomiphene citrate is the most commonly used oral agent for ovulation induction in this group, but there are some drawbacks with the use of it.

Astronaut Vision Issues in a Ground Analog Population: Polycystic Ovary Syndrome

Evidence from initial analysis of 5 SNPs in the one-carbon metabolism pathway suggests that one-carbon pathway genes may predict risk of ocular changes and possible vision impairment during and after long-duration space flight. It is not precisely known whether it is these particular genes, or a haplotype of genes that ...

Phase N/A

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. ...

Effect of Metformin Therapy on Serum Under-carboxylated Osteocalcin Levels in Hyperandrogenic Lean Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome Women

Under-carboxylated osteocalcin (ucOC), the precursor substrate of bone biomarker OC is a potent regulator of energy metabolism by promoting insulin production and adiponectin synthesis and decreasing fat stores.UcOC has a potential role in the physiopathology of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), a common disorder defined by the constellation of anovulation, insulinresistance, ...

Phase

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 ...
