Healthy women needed for polycystic ovary syndrome study
The Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the Indiana University School of Medicine is seeking healthy women ages 18 to 40 for a research study to better understand polycystic ovary syndrome.
Two different profiles of women are being sought for study participation:
- Women with polycystic ovary syndrome who have infrequent periods and a body mass index from 18 to 25.
- Women who do not have polycystic ovary syndrome to serve as controls who have regular periods and a body mass index from 30 to 40.
Volunteers cannot be currently pregnant or be on hormonal birth control.
The study involves a screening visit, two admissions to the Indiana University Clinical Research Center for blood draws during a cream challenge test, a glucose tolerance test and an ovarian stimulation test. Women with polycystic ovary syndrome may also be eligible to receive a medication in a 12-week treatment arm of the study.
Participants will be compensated for their time.
