Research Study for Women with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome

Are you seeking a way to manage your PCOS? Interested in a research study? Find innovative solutions at Penn Medicine.

The Penn PCOS Center is conducting a clinical trial to examine the effects of a supplement called Inositol, which may improve the way the body uses insulin and promote hormone balance in women with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) over a three-month period. Study participants will be randomized to one of four groups: 1) Placebo Treatment Twice a day 2) Inositol 1 gm/ Twice a day 3) Inositol 2 gm/ Twice a day, or 4) Inositol 3 gm/ Twice a day. 

If you wish to be a contributor to PCOS research, your participation in this study will consist of a screening visit, followed by 3 study visits. During this time, you will receive benefits including supplements for three months, physical exams, laboratory assessments, ultrasound, bone density scans, and compensation.

Women with a diagnosis of PCOS, between the ages of 18 to 45 years, and not seeking pregnancy, may be eligible research contributors.
