Relative Desirability of Metformin vs. Birth Control Pill in Treating PCOS in Women of Later Reproductive Age

This is a randomized, controlled, double-blinded, crossover study. The investigators will recruit women with PCOS in ages 40-47 yo. Subjects will be randomized to either receive metformin (2000 mg daily) or low dose oral contraceptives (OCs: 20 mcg ethinyl estradiol/norethindrone acetate 1mg) for a total of 6 months, and they ...

Cediranib Maleate and Olaparib or Standard Chemotherapy in Treating Patients With Recurrent Platinum-Resistant or -Refractory Ovarian Fallopian Tube or Primary Peritoneal Cancer

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES: I. To assess the efficacy and identify (in)active arm(s) of the combination of cediranib maleate (cediranib) and olaparib, cediranib alone, olaparib alone, and physician's choice standard of care chemotherapy, as measured by progression-free survival (PFS) in the setting of recurrent platinum-resistant or-refractory ovarian, primary peritoneal or fallopian tube ...

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 ...

Assessment of Day-night Secretion of Progesterone and LH Across Puberty

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a common disorder marked by irregular ovulation and hyperandrogenism. Hyperandrogenemia during adolescence can be a forerunner of adult PCOS. However, the progression of hormonal abnormalities leading to PCOS are unclear. We will examine hormonal profiles (e.g., LH, FSH, progesterone, testosterone, estradiol) during pubertal maturation in ...

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 ...

Suppression of Daytime and Nighttime Luteinizing Hormone Frequency by Progesterone

Studies will be performed in early pubertal (late Tanner 1 [estradiol level > 20 pg/ml] to Tanner 3, premenarcheal) girls with and without hyperandrogenemia (HA). After a potential subject is identified by the Pediatric, Teen, or Endocrine clinics, she will come to the CRU or alternate UVA clinical unit for ...

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 ...

Standard or Comprehensive Radiation Therapy in Treating Patients With Early-Stage Breast Cancer Previously Treated With Chemotherapy and Surgery

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES: To evaluate whether the addition of chest wall + regional nodal radiation therapy (XRT) after mastectomy or breast + regional nodal XRT after breast conserving surgery will significantly reduce the rate of events for invasive breast cancer recurrence-free interval (IBC-RFI) in patients who present with histologically positive axillary ...

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 ...

Acute Progesterone Suppression of Wake vs. Sleep Luteinizing Hormone Pulse Frequency in Pubertal Girls With and Without Hyperandrogenism

This is a randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blinded crossover study to test the following hypotheses: (1) In normal mid- to late pubertal girls without hyperandrogenism (HA), progesterone acutely suppresses waking LH pulse frequency more than sleep-associated LH pulse frequency; and (2) compared to normal mid- to late pubertal girls without HA, acute ...
