Serum resistin levels in women with polycystic ovary syndrome.
OBJECTIVE To measure serum resistin levels in women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and assess possible correlations of resistin to the hormonal and metabolic parameters of the syndrome. Expand

Association of the T45G polymorphism in exon 2 of the adiponectin gene with polycystic ovary syndrome: role of Delta4-androstenedione.
BACKGROUND Insulin resistance is a prominent feature of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), independent of obesity. It is possible that insulin resistance in PCOS is genetically determined. AdiponectinExpand

Serum parathyroid hormone concentrations are increased in women with polycystic ovary syndrome.
BACKGROUND The present study was designed to investigate the effects of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and of obesity on serum parathyroid hormone (RhoTauEta), 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25-OH-vitaminExpand

Plasma metastin levels are negatively correlated with insulin resistance and free androgens in women with polycystic ovary syndrome.
OBJECTIVE This study was designed to: [1] measure, for the first time, metastin (kisspeptin) levels in women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), a condition associated with hypersecretion of LHExpand

Oxidised low-density lipoprotein concentration - early marker of an altered lipid metabolism in young women with PCOS.
OBJECTIVE Women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) are assumed to be at increased risk for cardiovascular diseases. This study examined the variations in oxidised low-density lipoprotein (OxLDL)Expand

A polymorphism in the resistin gene promoter is associated with body mass index in women with polycystic ovary syndrome.
Resistin does not appear to be a major gene predisposing to polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). However, an association of a resistin variant with body mass index was found in women with PCOS,Expand

Serum vaspin levels in normal pregnancy in comparison with non-pregnant women.
OBJECTIVE Pregnancy represents a state of insulin resistance (IR). Vaspin (SERPINA12) is a novel insulin-sensitizing adipokine that might be implicated in endogenous glucose regulation. However, itsExpand
