Abstract

Serum levels of monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 and C-reactive protein levels, as early signs of vascular damage and cardiovascular disease, were increased in young, lean patients with polycystic ovary syndrome. Serum monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 levels were positively correlated with serum LH, T, and C-reactive protein levels. (Fertil Steril (R) 2011;95:295-7.
