Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)

To Evaluate Circulating Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF) Levels in the Process of Angiogenesis In Patients with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) and Normally Ovulating Patients:


This research study is an investigator initiated trial. The purpose of this study is to evaluate circulating Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF) levels in the process of angiogenesis in patients with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) and normal ovulating patients. Angiogenesis is the process of new capillary (tiny blood vessels) formation from previously existing mature vessels.

Participants will be women ages 18 to 45 who either have Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) or have normal ovulation. Patients who choose to take part in this study will have six tubes of blood drawn from the arm. Only one visit will be required for this study.

Lipoprotein Profiling of PCOS Subjects With and Without Metabolic Syndrome

This research study is an investigator initiated trial. The purpose of this study is to determine if patients with PCOS who have or do not have metabolic syndrome (MBS) have different lipoprotein profiles. 

Participants  will be women ages 18 to 45 who have Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) with or without metabolic syndrome. Patients who choose to take part in this study will have six tubes of blood drawn from the arm. Only one visit will be required for this study.
