Evaluation of Endocrine and Metabolic Parameters in the New Diagnostic Phenotypes of Polycystic Ovary Syndrome

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a very frequent endocrine disease of women in reproductive age, with an estimated prevalence of 5 to 10 % according to the studied population. Its cause remains not fully understood. PCOS is characterized by hyperandrogenism, chronic anovulation and / or polycystic ovaries. Patients, in a ...

CCRC: The Effects of Walnuts Walnut-Oil Almonds and Fish Oils on Glucose Homeostasis in Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)

Polycystic ovary syndrome is a common disease that affects 1 out of 16 women. Metabolic and endocrine abnormalities seen in PCOS include insulin resistance, androgen excess and infertility. This study focuses on the insulin resistance aspect because increased insulin resistance leads to premature onset of impaired glucose tolerance or diabetes ...

Phase N/A

Simvastatin and Metformin Therapy in PCOS Women. Prospective Randomised Trial.

The purpose of this study is to compare effects of statins (simvastatin) and metformin on clinical (menstrual cycle, excessive hair, skin problems), endocrine (androgens), metabolic (lipids, markers of systemic inflammation), and endothelial function parameters in women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).

Phase N/A

The Role of Insulin Resistance in PCOS

Because of the menstrual irregularity and the hirsutism/acne caused by hyperandrogenism, the treatment of choice for PCOS in young teenagers is to given the oral contraceptive; however, such oral contraceptives fail to correct the endocrinometabolic anomalies and the excess of fat. Therefore, there are some alternative treatments as adding the ...

Phase N/A

Metabolic Disorders in Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is the most common endocrinopathy in women of reproductive age with a probable prevalence of 5% to 10%. PCOS is characterized by chronic anovulation, menstrual irregularities, evidence of hyperandrogenism (either clinical, manifested as hirsutism, acne, male pattern balding, or biochemical, manifested by elevated serum adrenal and/or ...

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 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

Ovarian Ultrasonography for the Clinical Evaluation of Polycystic Ovary Syndrome

The purpose of this study is to develop ultrasound criteria for polycystic ovaries for women with PCOS across early, mid and late adulthood and to assess the impact of body composition on these ultrasound criteria.. The study will also compare ultrasound features of the ovary against or in combination with ...

Phase N/A

Functional Study of the Hypothalamus in Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) in Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)

The aim to evaluate whether activation of the hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal axis in PCOS is associated with transient microstructural and metabolic changes in the female hypothalamus using MRI approaches to assess water diffusion and measure proton magnetic resonance spectra.
