Polycystic Ovary Syndrome clinical trials at University of California Health

4 in progress, 2 open to eligible people

Showing trials for
  • Restoring Metabolic and Reproductive Health With Sleep in PCOS Study, CPAP Trial

    open to eligible females ages 18-40

    In this study, the researchers are trying to learn more about the relationship between Polycystic Ovary Syndrome and Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). Obstructive Sleep Apnea is a sleep-related breathing disorder that involves a decrease or complete stop in airflow. The purpose of this study is to find out why some people with obstructive sleep apnea have higher levels of insulin resistance, and the investigators will study the role of hypoxia (low levels of oxygen in the blood at night) in insulin resistance and see if insulin resistance improves during your treatment with CPAP.

  • Saroglitazar Magnesium 4 mg in the Treatment of NAFLD in Women With PCOS (EVIDENCES VII)

    open to eligible females ages 18-45

    This is a multicenter, phase 2A, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study designed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of Saroglitazar Magnesium in women with well characterized PCOS.

  • Bicalutamide Therapy in Young Women With NAFLD and PCOS

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    Nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), or fat-related liver inflammation and scarring is projected to be the leading cause of cirrhosis in the United States (U.S.) within the next few years. Women are at disproportionate risk for NASH, with approximately 15 million U.S. women affected. There is an urgent need to understand risk factors for NASH and its progression in women, and sex hormones may provide a missing link. This study will study the contribution of androgens to liver injury and progression in PCOS and mechanistic role of dysregulated lipid metabolism and visceral adiposity in this process. Such findings will provide the rationale for future efficacy studies evaluating selective androgen receptor (AR) antagonism for NASH in PCOS, or alternatively, the need to directly target visceral adiposity or lipid-specific pathways as part of a precision medicine approach to halt fibrosis progression in the nearly 5 million young women with PCOS and NAFLD in the U.S., who remain at increased risk for early onset and progressive liver disease.

  • PCOS & Insulin Resistance Exercise Study

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This study evaluates the feasibility and metabolic effects of implementing a structured exercise program in women with polycystic ovary syndrome and insulin resistance. Participants will be randomized to either 75 minutes of vigorous exercise or 150 minutes of moderate exercise per week.
