Long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) are RNA transcripts over 200 nucleotides long that are not translated into protein; however, there is increasing evidence of their regulatory functions. To date, there are few studies measuring lncRNA in control women or women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). Objective: To determine lncRNA differences between PCOS and control women. Design: Cross sectional study. Patients: Twenty four anovulatory women with all three diagnostic features of PCOS compared to 24 control women in the follicular phase of their menstrual cycle from a PCOS biobank. Results: Women with PCOS were age and weight matched compared to the control women but were significantly insulin resistant and hyperandrogenemic (P
