  Purpose

In the present study, serum pentraxin 3 level and its relationship with insulin resistance were determined in patients with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS. It was found that PTX3 level is increased in patients with PCOS and it is positively correlated with HOMA-IR.

Further study details as provided by Gulhane School of Medicine:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Level of of pentraxin3 in cases with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome [ Time Frame: 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Mean PTX3 was significantly higher in patients with PCOS. This means that there is increased level of inflamation in patients with PCOS.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Relationship of PTX3 with insuline resistance in patients with PCOS. [ Time Frame: 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    PTX3 was positively correlated with HOMA-IR. This means that inflamation may cause insuline resistance in patients with PCOS.
