The effect of exenatide on cardiovascular risk markers in women with polycystic ovary syndrome. Frontiers in endocrinology, 10(APR), Article 189. https://doi.org/10.3389/fendo.2019.00189

Background: Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is associated with an adverse cardiovascular risk profile including a prothrombotic state. Exenatide has been shown to be effective at improving insulin sensitivity and weight loss in PCOS; therefore this...

Background Insulin resistance (IR) after bariatric surgery is significantly lower than controls matched for bodymass index (BMI) and is indistinguishable from lean subjects however it is not known if this is the same for associated cardiovascular ris...

Polycystic ovary syndrome has no independent effect on vascular, inflammatory or thrombotic markers when matched for obesity (2013)
Journal Article
Kahal, H., Aburima, A., Ungvari, T., Rigby, A. S., Dawson, A. J., Coady, A. M., …Atkin, S. L. (2013). Polycystic ovary syndrome has no independent effect on vascular, inflammatory or thrombotic markers when matched for obesity.

Introduction Previous studies investigating cardiovascular (CV) risk in obese women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) have been potentially confounded by not adequately accounting for body weight. Objective To assess if PCOS increases CV risk ind... Read More about Polycystic ovary syndrome has no independent effect on vascular, inflammatory or thrombotic markers when matched for obesity.
