The effect of myo-inositol/di-chiro-inositol on markers of ovarian reserve in women with PCOS undergoing IVF/ICSI: a systematic review and meta-analysis.

Acta Obstet Gynecol Scand 2019 Apr 16. Epub 2019 Apr 16.

Women's Health and Perinatology Research Group, Department of Clinical Medicine, UiT-The Arctic University of Norway, Tromsø, Norway.

Introductio: High levels of anti-Mullerian hormone and a high antral follicle count in women with polycystic ovary syndrome, reflecting increased ovarian antral follicles, predisposes them to have a high number of retrieved oocytes at in-vitro fertilisation (IVF)/ intra-cytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) and an increased risk of ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome. Inositols, which act as insulin sensitizers have the potential to alter folliculogenesis and the functional ovarian reserve with subsequent benefits to reproductive outcomes following IVF/ICSI treatment. Published literature is however unable to provide definitive evidence of its efficacy. Read More

[Diagnostic criteria for polycystic ovary syndrome].

Ugeskr Laeger 2019 Apr;181(15)

Since 2004, the Rotterdam criteria have been used in the diagnosis of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), requiring the presence of two of the following three criteria: oligo-/anovulation, hyperandrogenism or polycystic ovaries. Reports of high prevalences of polycystic ovaries in younger women have caused concerns about overdiagnosis. Recently, the international guideline for PCOS has recommended raising the follicle threshold for polycystic ovaries and avoiding ultrasound in adolescents. Read More

VCAM1 is Induced in Ovarian Theca and Stromal Cells in a Mouse Model of Androgen Excess.

Endocrinology 2019 Apr 5. Epub 2019 Apr 5.

Department of Molecular and Cellular Biology, Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, TX.

Ovarian theca androgen production is regulated by the pituitary luteinizing hormone (LH) and intra-follicular factors. Enhanced androgen biosynthesis by theca cells contributes to polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) in women, but the ovarian consequences of elevated androgens are not completely understood. Our study documents the molecular events that are altered in the theca and stromal cells of mice exposed to high androgen levels, using the non-aromatizable androgen DHT. Read More
