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

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

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

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

Administration of Kisspeptin to Subjects With Reproductive Disorders

The master reproductive hormone GnRH (gonadotropin-releasing hormone) is essential for normal reproductive function. People with hypogonadotropic hypogonadism (IHH), hyperprolactinemia, and polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) do not secrete or respond to GnRH in a normal way. In this study, investigators will give participants, kisspeptin a hormone that is naturally found in ...

Phase

Ovarian Response to Recombinant Follicle Stimulating Hormone in Women With PCOS

In women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) androgen excess is fundamental to the clinical and physiological alterations of this disorder. In particular, androgen overproduction induces distinctive PCO morphology and appears to influence follicle function. Studies conducted in animals and nonhuman primates have demonstrated that androgens increase follicle number and in ...

Phase

Letrozole in Clomiphene Resistant Infertile Women With Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

Polycystic ovary syndrome accounts for the vast majority of anovulatory symptoms and hyperandrogenism in women. The diagnosis of Polycystic ovary syndrome has life-long implications, with increased risk for infertility, metabolic syndrome, and type 2 diabetes mellitus, and possibly for cardiovascular disease and endometrial carcinoma. Polycystic ovary syndrome is diagnosed in ...

Phase

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. ...

Phase

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

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 ...
