Clinical Observation of Recombinant Human Growth Hormone Injection Assisted IVF-ET in the Treatment of PCOS

Observe validity of Recombinant Human Growth Hormone Injection assisted in IVF-ET (in vitro fertilization and embryo transfer) treatment of PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome) patients.

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

Cortisol Regulation in Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)

PCOS is a common clinical problem affecting young women, characterized by oligomenorrhea and hyperandrogenism. Central obesity and insulin resistance are also prominent features of PCOS, and in addition are important risk factors for development of hypertension, hyperlipidemia and atherosclerotic heart disease. Previous studies have suggested that cortisol is dysregulated in ...

Phase N/A

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

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

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

Micronutrient Supplementation in PCO-syndrome

Introduction and scientific background: In the Western world, malnutrition and subfertility have become increasingly common problems affecting both men and women. A recent study showed that conforming to nutritional recommendations significantly increased the probability of a clinical pregnancy following vitro fertilisation (IVF)/ intracytoplasmatic sperm injection (ICSI). They included fruit, vegetables, ...

Phase N/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

Adipose Tissue Function and Response to Exercise Training in Women With and Without Polycystic Ovary Syndrome

The primary aim of this trial is to investigate adipose tissue function in women with and without polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). PCOS is a common endocrine disorder in young women. The pathogenesis behind PCOS is complex and only partly understood, and deeper mechanistic insight is needed. Insulin resistance is a ...

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 ...
