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 ...

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 ...

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.

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 ...

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.

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. ...

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 ...

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 ...
