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 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 ...

A New Algorithm to Predict Ovarian Age

The normal process of reproductive aging varies considerably among women. This implies that some women remain highly fertile until the fifth decade of their life, whereas others face the loss of natural fertility already in their mid-thirties. Female reproductive aging seems to be largely based on age related changes in ...

The Genetic Investigation of Reproductive Disorders (Including Kallmann Syndrome)

The World Health Organization estimates approximately 10% of couples experience some sort of infertility problem. In humans, puberty is the process through which we develop reproductive capacity. Disorders of puberty have provided insight into the biology of reproduction and genetic technologies have enabled us to deepen understanding in this field. ...

Phase N/A

Comparison of Lifestyle Markers Between Women With and Without Polycystic Ovary Syndrome

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is an endocrine disorder that affects 6-12% of reproductive-aged women within the general population. Currently, there is limited knowledge on the current lifestyles of women with PCOS and the psychosocial factors associated with PCOS. The researchers plan to examine potential lifestyle differences and psychosocial factors between ...

Phase N/A

Nutritional and Metabolic Correlates of Ovarian Morphology in Women With Polycystic Ovary Syndrome

In the ovaries, eggs rest in fluid filled sacs called follicles. When follicles grow they form small fluid-filled cysts that can be easily seen when we use ultrasound to view the ovaries. In women with regular menstrual cycles, groups of follicles grow and regress 2 to 3 times during their ...

Phase N/A

Database Study on Patients With PCOS

All premenopausal women referred to the outpatient clinic at the Department of Endocrinology from 1997 and onward with the referral diagnoses hirsutism and/or PCOS are included in a clinical database. The patients should fulfill the Rotterdam criteria for PCOS or have clinical/biochemical hyperandrogenemia. Routine evaluation include medical history, clinical examination, ...

Phase N/A

Ultrasound Characterization of Ovarian Follicle Dynamics in Women With Amenorrhea

In the ovaries, eggs rest in fluid filled sacs called follicles. When follicles grow they form small fluid-filled cysts that can be easily seen when we use ultrasound to view the ovaries. In women with regular menstrual cycles, groups of 10 to 20 follicles grow and regress at 2 or ...

Phase N/A

Primary Ovarian Insufficiency Polycystic Ovary Syndrome & the CardiOvascular Risk Profile

Cardiovascular risk profile will be assessed in women with PCOS and POI > 45 years of age, consisting of: fasting serum and urine analyses blood pressure, length, weight, waist circumference, hip circumference ECG carotid intima media thickness cardiac ultrasound spare serum, plasma and urine will be stored in -80 degrees ...

Phase N/A

NAFLD in Adolescents and Young Adults With PCOS

PCOS is a common condition that frequently presents in adolescence and young adulthood and is defined by the presence of hyperandrogenism and ovulatory dysfunction. Affected individuals are at increased risk of insulin resistance, NAFLD and dyslipidemia, which are features associated with the metabolic syndrome, a major public health concern. The ...
