Official Trial Title
Evaluation of adrenal androgen production in normal and obese girls after suppression and stimulation (JCM022)
Study Description

The Center for Research in Reproduction seeks healthy adolescent girls ages 7 – 18 for a research study. We are also enrolling girls ages 7-18 who have symptoms of high male hormone (excess hair growth, irregular periods). The purpose of this study is to learn about how the adrenal glands contribute to hormone production during puberty.

Participation involves taking study medications that block and stimulate the adrenal glands. The study also involves blood draws during outpatient and inpatient visits. There are 3-4 study visits in total – one outpatient screening visit that takes about an hour, 1-2 outpatient blood draws that take about 15 minutes each, and one overnight inpatient visit.

Study-related exams, tests, and medications are provided free of charge. For more information please contact pcos@virginia.edu
