  • The prevalence and phenotypic features of polycystic ovary syndrome: a systematic review and meta-analysis. [Journal Article]
  • Hum Reprod 2016 Sep 22HR
  • Bozdag G, Mumusoglu S, … Yildiz BO
  • CONCLUSIONS: The reported overall prevalence of PCOS (95% CI) according to diagnostic criteria of the NIH, Rotterdam and the AE-PCOS Society is 6% (5-8%, n = 18 trials), 10% (8-13%, n = 15 trials) and 10% (7-13%, n = 10 trials), respectively.The effects of ethnic differences, particularly, on the presence or severity of hirsutism cannot be ruled out in any way. In addition, there was a lack of standardization in defining phenotypes of the syndrome and selection bias was evident in most of the studies regarding recruitment of the cohorts.Geographical differences in frequencies of the components of the syndrome, such as oligo-anovulation and clinical/biochemical androgen excess, must be taken into account in the development and implementation of regional diagnostic and precision treatment strategies. Further efforts and resources are required to increase standardization of the methods and comparability of the study results on prevalence and phenotypic characterization of PCOS around the globe.
  • Should we individualize lipid profiling in women with polycystic ovary syndrome? [Journal Article]
  • Hum Reprod 2016 Sep 22HR
  • Sundström Poromaa I, Mellembakken JR, … Andersen M
  • CONCLUSIONS: Lipid profiling is required when women with PCOS develop type 2 diabetes (T2D) or hypertension, but rarely changes clinical care before the age of 35 years.Findings can only be generalized to countries with low cardiovascular mortality rates.Lipid profiling is required when women with PCOS develop T2D or hypertension. However, lipid profiling rarely changes the clinical care of low risk PCOS patients before the age of 35, especially in the normal-weight women.
