The purpose of this study is to determine whether myo-inositol and melatonin, or myo-inositol alone, or melatonin alone, are effective in normalizing irregular bleeding and anovulatory cycles in pre-menopausal women.
Melatonin has produced a remarkable significant improvement of thyroid function, positive changes of gonadotropins towards reduced levels, and in some women a re-acquisition of normal menstrual cycle. Furthermore, an abrogation of menopause-related depression, amelioration of hot-flashes and improvement of quality and duration of sleep has been reported.
Myo-inositol is involved in several aspects of human reproduction. Elevated concentrations of myo-inositol in human follicular fluids appear to play a positive function in follicular maturity and provide a marker of good quality oocytes. Nevertheless its positive role in PCOS women is a consequence of a defect in the insulin signalling pathway (inositol-containing phosphoglycan mediators) that seems to be primarily implicated in the pathogenesis of insulin resistance

The aim of the present study is to evaluate the effect of increasing the proportion of D-chiro-inositol (DCI) in a combination with myo-inositol (MYO) in improving fertility in women with ...
Considering the importance assumed by follicular microenvironment for a proper oocyte development, this study is a prospective observational clinical trial which aims to evaluate whether t...
Myo-Inositol is classified as a member of the vitamin B complex. It is a constituent of living cells and is widespread in many food. It is involved in a number of biological processes, inc...
PCOS patients are initially treated with 2 g myo-inositol and 0.2 mg folic acid, two times per day by oral route, for three months. Among them, the subjects who have not ovulated despite t...
The primary focus of this five-year study will be to optimize the melatonin dosing regimen for synchronizing the body clocks of blind children to the 24-hour day.
Circulating melatonin is a good candidate biomarker for studies of circadian rhythms and circadian disruption. However, epidemiologic studies on circulating melatonin are limited because melatonin is ...
Cryptococcus neoformans is the most common cause of deadly fungal meningitis. This fungus has a complex inositol acquisition and utilization system, and our previous studies have shown the importance ...
A comparative analysis of melatonin circadian rhythms in Caucasian (incoming population) and Asian (indigenous population) menopausal women with/without sleep disorders depending on the genotype of Cl...
For the first time, it was found that the hormone melatonin exhibited antiglycation activity in vitro. It was shown that melatonin significantly slowed down the accumulation of fluorescent Schiff addu...
One of the many functions of melatonin in vertebrates is seasonal reproductive timing. Longer nights in winter correspond to an extended duration of melatonin secretion. The purpose of this review is ...
A biogenic amine that is found in animals and plants. In mammals, melatonin is produced by the PINEAL GLAND. Its secretion increases in darkness and decreases during exposure to light. Melatonin is implicated in the regulation of SLEEP, mood, and REPRODUCTION. Melatonin is also an effective antioxidant.
Phosphoinositide phosphatases that catalyze the removal of the 5' phosphate from INOSITOL 1,4,5-TRISPHOSPHATE or myo-inositol 1,3,4,5-tetrakisphosphate, resulting in inositol 1,4-bisphosphate and phosphate. They have important functions in the metabolism of INOSITOL PHOSPHATES and inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate signaling pathways such as CALCIUM SIGNALING.
A family of G-protein-coupled receptors that are specific for and mediate the effects of MELATONIN. Activation of melatonin receptors has been associated with decreased intracellular CYCLIC AMP and increased hydrolysis of PHOSPHOINOSITIDES.
A melatonin receptor subtype primarily found expressed in the BRAIN and RETINA.
A melatonin receptor subtype that is primarily found in the HYPOTHALAMUS and in the KIDNEY.
