Comparison of Bone Morphogenetic Protein-4 (BMP-4) and 7 Levels Between Control and Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) Patients.

2014-08-27 03:12:12 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The investigators aim to compare the levels of bone morphogenetic protein-4 and -7 (BMP-4 and 7) in blood, follicular fluid and ovarian organ culture supernatant obtained from healthy subjects and polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) patients.

Description

Female patients at ages 20-35 diagnosed with polycystic ovarian syndrome and age-matched healthy control subjects will be enrolled in this study.

Blood samples will be obtained at early follicular phase during doctor's visit from PCOS patients and control subjects.If the patient is amenorrheic at the time of visit, both random blood samples and another sample at early follicular phase after induction of withdrawal bleeding with progesterone.

Follicular fluids will be retrieved during oocyte pick-up procedure in patients undergoing assisted reproduction for PCOS and control IVF patients whose infertility is not PCO related.

Samples from ovaries will be collected at operation from PCOS patients and control subjects if they already undergo any gynecologic laparotomi operations.

Collected samples will be cultured for 7 days and BMP-4 and -7 levels will be measured in the culture fluid of the samples using ELISA method.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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 complication of OVULATION INDUCTION in infertility treatment. It is graded by the severity of symptoms which include OVARY enlargement, multiple OVARIAN FOLLICLES; OVARIAN CYSTS; ASCITES; and generalized EDEMA. The full-blown syndrome may lead to RENAL FAILURE, respiratory distress, and even DEATH. Increased capillary permeability is caused by the vasoactive substances, such as VASCULAR ENDOTHELIAL GROWTH FACTORS, secreted by the overly-stimulated OVARIES.

Autosomal dominant HEREDITARY CANCER SYNDROME in which a mutation most often in either BRCA1 or BRCA2 is associated with a significantly increased risk for breast and ovarian cancers.

Hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal neoplasms associated with other malignancies, more commonly of ovarian or uterine origin. When also associated with SEBACEOUS GLAND NEOPLASMS, it is called MUIR-TORRE SYNDROME.

Cessation of ovarian function after MENARCHE but before the age of 40, without or with OVARIAN FOLLICLE depletion. It is characterized by the presence of OLIGOMENORRHEA or AMENORRHEA, elevated GONADOTROPINS, and low ESTRADIOL levels. It is a state of female HYPERGONADOTROPIC HYPOGONADISM. Etiologies include genetic defects, autoimmune processes, chemotherapy, radiation, and infections.
