Polycystic Ovary Syndrome discusses

  • the use of animal models in the study of PCOS

  • the occurrence of ovarian and adrenal abnormalities, cardiovascular risks, abnormal insulin secretion, and endothelial dysfunction in PCOS

  • modern therapeutic modalities, such as manipulation of diet and lifestyle, metabolic phenotyping, and treatment of hyperandrogenism

  • the effect of PCOS on long-term health

    Exploring the direct and indirect effects of PCOS in each stage of life, from puberty and adolescence to adulthood, Polycystic Ovary Syndrome is an in-depth and illuminating source for obstetricians and gynecologists; medical, reproductive, and pediatric endocrinologists; practitioners in family, internal, and pediatric medicine; epidemiologists; developmental biologists and toxicologists; and scientists and medical students in these disciplines.
