Oxidative stress and inflammation in lean and obese polycystic ovary syndrome
In the study to determine whether polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) independently influences oxidative stress and inflammation or if the culprit is the comorbidities of obesity and/or insulin resistance common to this condition, by the Queen's University, posted in PubMed, indicated that
status was increased in the PCOS subjects relative to their
weight-matched controls (TOS: obese PCOS patients vs. obese controls,
42.42 +/- 4.49 vs. 32.57 +/- 1.97, p<0.05; lean PCOS patients vs.
lean controls, 33.69 +/- 1.59 vs. 28.69 +/- 1.18 micromol H2O2 Equiv/L, p
< 0.05). Furthermore, antioxidant capacity was lower in the lean
PCOS group relative to their weight-matched controls (TAC: lean PCOS
patients vs. lean controls, 1.10 +/- 0.09 vs. 1.49 +/- 0.03 nmol Trolox
Equiv/L, p < 0.05).
