Synergy between vitamin D and estradiol in PCOS patients affected by COVID-19 infection

Velija Asimi Zelija , Hajrovic Dzevad , Behmen Selma , Burekovic Azra

Introduction: Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) affects 5-10% of reproductive aged women. PCOS also manifests a chronic pro-inflammatory state. Estradiol is known to modulate the actions of immune cells, and, therefore, the antiviral mechanisms of these cells could also be modified by this hormone stimulus. In the presence of vitamin D, the binding energy of the spike protein to ACE2 was increased and transferring Apo to Locked S conformer of spike trimer was facilitated. Toget...

Hernandez-Lazaro Alba , Santana Ojeda Borja , Rios-Gomez Carlos , Jose de Leon-Durango Ricardo , Arnas-Leon Claudia , Acosta-Calero Carmen , Kuzior Agnieszka , del Pino Perez-Garcia Maria , del Sol Sanchez-Bacaicoa Maria , Javier Martinez Martin Francisco

Introduction: We have recently reported that the use of cyproterone acetate (CPA) is associated with a highly significant increase of the risk of hypertension development after 5 years (adjusted hazard ratio 0.227, P< 0.001) in young transgender women. Due to the risks associated with the prolonged use of CPA (including the development of meningioma), the EMA presently recommends avoiding the use of doses > 10 mg CPA daily if possible. In fact, acceptable effi...

Position and Characteristics of adolescents diagnosed as PCOS under the original Rotterdam criteria but excluded under the 2018 updated guideline

Kim Jinju , Ri Hwang Kyu , Kim Sunmie , Min Choi Young

Background and Aims: Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) usually develop symptoms during adolescence. However, diagnosis in adolescents is challenging because physiologic development overlap typical manifestation of PCOS. Recently, an international evidence-based PCOS guideline development group recommended that ultrasound should not be used for the diagnosis of PCOS in those with a gynecological age of < 8 years. Thus, girls with irregular menstruation (IM)/PCO or hyperandro...

Background: Low adiponectin levels in polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) have been largely attributed to obesity which is common among these patients. In addition, evidence also suggests that low adiponectin in PCOS may be related to androgen excess in these women. Therefore, the aim of the present study was to examine the association of adiponectin levels and androgens in women with PCOS.Methods: A total of 60 women with PCOS who met the 2003 Rotterdam ...

Serum AMH in women with polycystic ovary syndrome

Kim Jinju , Ri Hwang Kyu , Kim Sunmie , Min Choi Young

Background and Aims: Anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH) is secreted by granulosa cells of ovarian follicles. Since AMH reflects the number of antral follicles and the pronounced androgen secretion from follicles/stroma in women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) remains until late reproductive age, the age related relationship between AMH in women with PCOS are of interest. Methods: Women with PCOS (aged 15–42 years) (n=537) participated ...

Clinical characteristics of men with primary hypogonadism in late-onset hypogonadism

Soon Swee Du

Late-onset hypogonadism (LOH) remains a debatable entity in terms of diagnosis and management. However, the finding of primary hypogonadism (PHG) in ageing men, in the absence of organic cause, provides an unequivocal biochemical diagnosis. Indeed, it has been established in European Male Ageing Study (EMAS) that PHG, and not secondary hypogonadism, is strongly associated with advanced age and multi-comorbidities. That would be consistent with the underlying pathophysiology of...
