Ultrasonographic Evaluation of Anovulatory Disorders in Lean and Overweight Women

This study is being conducted in order to determine if ultrasound features of the ovaries can be used to reliably diagnose different types of anovulatory disorders in women across all body types. The study will also try to establish whether ultrasound features of the ovary can reflect the degree of ...

Phase N/A

Effect of Spironolactone on Adrenal or Ovarian Androgen Production in Overweight Pubertal Girls With Androgen Excess

This study will test whether spironolactone administration can ameliorate androgen (male hormone) overproduction in overweight pubertal girls with androgen excess. The investigators hypothesize that reduction in P450c17alpha overactivity and androgen receptor blockade by 12 weeks of spironolactone administration will improve androgen levels after adrenal stimulation testing with adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) ...

Go Girls! Fitness Support Group Intervention Effectiveness Study

Adolescent girls have low participation in physical activity compared to boys at all ages. Interventions to improve physical activity levels in children have shown greatest success when targeted to low-active adolescent girls and employ strategies to enhance adolescents' enjoyment of physical activity. Go Girls! is a new dance-based patient fitness ...

Phase N/A

Effect of Metformin on Adrenal or Ovarian Androgen Production in Overweight Pubertal Girls With Androgen Excess

This study will test whether metformin administration can ameliorate androgen (male hormone) overproduction in overweight pubertal girls with androgen excess. The investigators hypothesize that improvement in insulin sensitivity by 12 weeks of metformin administration will improve androgen levels after adrenal stimulation testing with adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) or ovarian stimulation testing ...

Urinary DENND1A.V2 as a Predictor of Pubertal Hyperandrogenemia

To date, the mechanisms underlying excess androgen production from steroid producing tissues have been unclear, but recent Genome Wide Association Studies (GWAS) have provided additional data in this regard. Initial GWAS data in a Han Chinese population identified some 12 loci as potential PCOS susceptibility gene candidates. One of these ...

Ovarian Contribution to Androgen Production in Adolescent Girls

Adolescent hyperandrogenemia can represent a forerunner to adult PCOS. Because adrenarche leads to an increase in adrenal androgen production during early puberty and since early puberty is associated with an overnight rise in testosterone that follows a similar time course to cortisol, we hypothesize that the adrenal gland is a ...

Phase N/A

OCP vs Metformin for Improvement in Clinical Symptoms and Metabolic Markers in Indian PCOS Women

Objective: To assess effectiveness of ISD (Insulin sensitizing drugs) Vs OCP (Combined E&P cyproterone acetate) in improving clinical, hormonal and metabolic features of PCOS( polycystic ovary syndrome)women from India. Intervention Randomized to receive Metformin 1500 mg / day OR OCP (EE+CA) Life style advice to women with BMI ( body ...

Phase N/A

Etiological Factors of Obesity-Associated Hyperandrogenemia in Peripubertal Girls

A number of pathophysiological mechanisms underlie the polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). Neuroendocrine abnormalities play a significant role in most women with PCOS, and PCOS is associated with relative resistance of the gonadotropin releasing hormone (GnRH) pulse generator to negative feedback by progesterone and estradiol. This hypothalamic resistance to negative feedback ...

Phase N/A

Evaluation of Adrenal Androgens in Normal and Obese Girls After Suppression and Stimulation

We propose that the adrenal gland is the predominant source of the early morning rise in progesterone and testosterone which is more marked in early puberty. Specifically, we hypothesize that dexamethasone administration at 22:00 will be associated with a dampened progesterone and testosterone rise the subsequent morning in normal girls. ...

Phase N/A

The Mechanism of Modified Utral-long Protocol in Improving Endometrial Receptivity in Patients With PCOS and IR

The endometrial biopsy was performed in the previous cycle of the protocol. According to the expression of NF-B in the endometrium random group. The difference of NF - B expression in patients with different protocol were compared.
