Results from the International Consensus Conference on Myo-inositol and D-chiro-inositol in Obstetrics and Gynecology: the link between metabolic syndrome and PCOS

Metabolic syndrome (MS) is a combination of disorders characterized by alterations in carbohydrate metabolism, obesity, systemic arterial hypertension and dyslipidemia, which increase the risk of developing cardiovascular disease and diabetes. Metabolic disorders affect reproductive function controlled by the hypothalamus and the pituitary. A clinical example of such an interaction is represented by Polycystic …

Reflections on inositol(s) for PCOS therapy (Nestler-Unfer 2015)

In polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) pathogenesis, both the insulin resistance and the related compensatory hyperinsulinemia are involved. Despite their similarities, Myo-inositol (MI) and D-chiro-inositol (DCI) play different roles in PCOS etiology and therapy. Indeed, in tissue such as the liver both molecules are involved in the insulin signaling, i.e. MI promotes glucose uptake …

Results from the International Consensus Conference on myo-inositol and D-chiro-inositol in Obstetrics and Gynecology – assisted reproduction technology

A substantial body of research on mammalian gametogenesis and human reproduction has recently investigated the effect of myo-inositol (MyoIns) on oocyte and sperm cell quality, due    to its possible application to medically assisted reproduction. With a growing number of both clinical and basic research papers, the meaning of several observations now needs to …

Myo-inositol in Down syndrome amniotic fluid. A case-control study.

 

Myo-inositol is involved in metabolic changes that characterize Down syndrome

This study shows that Down syndrome metabolic changes occur very early in the fetal life, with amniotic fluid myo-inositol concentrations increasing since the mid-trimester. A possible clinical use of this finding maybe interesting
