The free androgen index (FAI) values differ among patients with polycystic ovarian syndrome, however the differences are not fully understood and known.

The phenotypic complex of patients with definitive diagnosis of polycystic ovary syndrome may include patients with normal and high serum androgen levels. Patients with hyperandrogenemia seem to prese...
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to compare androgen levels, endocrine and metabolic indices, and clinical findings in women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) in Uygur and Han ethnic groups fr...
What are the causal relationships between polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and body mass index (BMI)?
The objective of the study was to measure the levels of 25-hydroxyvitamin D [25(OH)D] and vitamin D binding protein (VDBP) and assess their relationships with cardiovascular risk factors in women with...
Androgens, while traditionally though to be male sex steroids, play important roles in female reproduction, both in healthy and pathological states. This minireview focuses on recent advances in our k...
The purpose is to investigate the effects of 2 different treatments (drospirenone/ethinyl estradiol versus rosiglitazone) on insulin sensitivity and androgen levels, inflammatory markers, ...
The mechanism for increased androgen production in women with PCOS is not well understood. Excess androgn production by the ovary is stimulated by increased pituitary LH secretion in this ...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effect of oral contraceptive on the serum free prostatic specific antigen (PSA)in women with polycystic ovary syndrome(PCOD)compared with cypro...
Polycystic Ovary Syndrome is kind of disease with unclear etiology. Recent studies on intestinal microbiota have raised the possibility that dysbiosis of intestinal microbiota maybe a nove...
This study evaluates the oxidative stress parameters in females with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and clinically healthy. Because of the fact that both oral disease included periodonti...
A complex disorder characterized by infertility, HIRSUTISM; OBESITY; and various menstrual disturbances such as OLIGOMENORRHEA; AMENORRHEA; ANOVULATION. Polycystic ovary syndrome is usually associated with bilateral enlarged ovaries studded with atretic follicles, not with cysts. The term, polycystic ovary, is misleading.
A state of intersex or sexual ambiguity, involving the GENOTYPE, the GONADS, the reproductive tract, and/or the external GENITALIA or PHENOTYPE. This concept covers TRUE HERMAPHRODITISM and PSEUDOHERMAPHRODITISM. True hermaphrodites are rare and they possess gonadal tissues of both sexes, tissues from the OVARY and the TESTIS. Pseudohermaphrodites possess gonadal tissue of one sex but exhibit external phenotype of the opposite sex.
A condition caused by the excessive secretion of ANDROGENS from the ADRENAL CORTEX; the OVARIES; or the TESTES. The clinical significance in males is negligible. In women, the common manifestations are HIRSUTISM and VIRILISM as seen in patients with POLYCYSTIC OVARY SYNDROME and ADRENOCORTICAL HYPERFUNCTION.
A familial form of PSEUDOHERMAPHRODITISM transmitted as an X-linked recessive trait. These patients have a karyotype of 46,XY with end-organ resistance to androgen due to mutations in the androgen receptor (RECEPTORS, ANDROGEN) gene. Severity of the defect in receptor quantity or quality correlates with their phenotypes. In these genetic males, the phenotypic spectrum ranges from those with normal female external genitalia, through those with genital ambiguity as in Reifenstein Syndrome, to that of a normal male with INFERTILITY.
Compounds that bind to and inhibit the activation of ANDROGEN RECEPTORS.
