The VCU Program for Polycystic Ovary Syndrome
Research & Treatment is an academic and clinical facility
dedicated to the treatment and understanding of the polycystic
ovary syndrome (PCOS), with a special emphasis on the role of
insulin resistance in the syndrome. The program's recent accomplishments
include a delineation of the role of insulin sensitizing drugs
in the treatment of infertility and excess testosterone production.
Current research focuses on these issues,
as well as the role of the insulin resistance in placing women
with polycystic ovary syndrome at higher risks for development
of diabetes and heart disease. We invite you to browse this
site for information on current research studies for which we
are recruiting volunteers, the program's faculty, and general
information on polycystic ovary syndrome.
