New women’s health studies at UF Health


>>A WOMEN’S HEALTH CENTER IS

FOCUSING ON OVARIAN SYNDROME AND

BIRTH CONTROL.

WE HAVE A CLINICAL RESEARCH

COORDINATOR HERE.

AND WE HAVE DR. ANDREW HERE FROM

U.S. HEALTH.

THANK YOU FOR COMING ON.

WE WERE TALKING ABOUT, I HAVE

NEVER HEARD OF THIS SYNDROME.

IS THIS A NEWER THING?

WHAT AGE GROUPS ARE AFFECTED BY

THIS?

>>ACTUALLY IT’S A VERY COMMON

— THE MOST COMMON FORM HORMONE

IMBALANCE THAT AFFECTS YOUNG

WOMEN.

WHEN THE OVARIES RELEASE AN EGG

EACH MONTH WHICH RESULTS IN

REGULAR MENSTRATATION THAT’S A

SIGN 245 HORMONES ARE WORKING

FINE.

BUT WHEN MENSES ARE NOT REGULAR,

THE OVARIES CAN MAKE TOO MUCH

MALE HORMONES, OILY SKIN.

>>MY THOUGHT WAS IF THERE’S NOT

THAT EGG RELEASE INFERTILITY

PRACTICALSS THERE A WAY TO FIX

THIS ONCE SOMEONE IS DIAGNOSED?

>>THAT’S WHAT THE STUDY IS

LOOKING AT.

CURRENTLY THERE’S ARE NO WOMEN

WITH PCS ARE FRUSTRATED.

THERE’S NO DRUGS TO SPECIFICALLY

TREAT THIS CONDITION.

WE HAVE EDUCATIONS NOT

SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED TO TREAT

IT AVAILABLE.

BUT THIS DRUG THAT WE’RE TESTING

AND MANY OTHER CENTERS IN THE

COUNTRY ARE TESTING IS — WILL

BE THE FIRST DRUG SPECIFICALLY

DESIGNED TO TREAT PCOS.

>>YOU ARE ALL LOOKING FOR

PEOPLE TO PARTICIPATE IN THE

STUDY, CORRECT?

>>RIGHT.

>>WE’VE RECENTLY ADVERTISED AND

HAVE SPOKE WEN DOZENS OF WOMEN

AND THEY’RE FRUSTRATED WITH ALL

OF MEDICATIONS THAT THEY TAKE TO

MANAGE SYMPTOMS BUT NOT REALLY

TREATING THE PROBLEM, ITSELF.

>>I COULD IMAGINE THAT.

MANAGING THE FACIAL HAIR OR

THINGS LIKE THAT.

BUT IF YOU WANT A FAMILYS THAT

MORE IMPORTANT THAN THE

SYMPTOMS.

>>SO WE’RE SPECIFICKING LOOKING

FOR WOMEN WHO ARE NOT CURRENTLY

LOOKING TO BECOME PREGNANT.

>>RIGHT.

>>THE CLINICAL TRIAL S — IS A

YEAR.

EVERYTHING THAT IS REQUIRED OF

THE WOMEN.

THEY’RE PAID FOR.

>>GOOD CAUSE.

>>HOPEFUL ITALY MEDICATION WILL

DO IT WHAT NEEDS TO DO AND HELP

THESE WOMEN.

>>ABSOLUTELY.

SWITCHING GEARS QUICKLY.

WE’RE WAIT READING ABOUT THE

BIRTH CONTROL PILL.

SOME PEOPLE GET NERVOUS ABOUT

TAKING THIS AND THE ORAL

MEDICATION.

BUT THERE’S A RISK BUT IT MAY BE

ONE PEOPLE DON’T EXPECT.

SOME PEOPLE ARE AFRAID IT WILL

MAKE THEM INTERRITORY –

INFERTILE BUT IT’S BLOOD CLOTS.

SHOO SO BIRTH CONTROL PILLS ARE

ONE OF THE SAFEST MEDICATIONS WE

HAVE AVAILABLE.

THE MAIN RISK, AS YOU MENTIONED,

IS AN INCREASED RISK OF BLOOD

CROUT CLOT.

ALTHOUGH IT’S IMPORTANT FOR

WOMEN TO REGULAR THAT THE RES —

RISK OF BLOOD CLOT IN PREGNANCY

IS MUCH HIGHER THAN WITH THE

PILL.

THE NEW PILL WE’RE STUDY THAT

INVOLVES RECRUITING WOMEN WHO

MAY WANT TO VOLUNTEER FOR THE

STUDY, USES A NATURAL ESTROGEN

DIFFERENT THAN THE SYNHETIC

FORM.

>>WE HAVE TO WRAP UP NOW BUT

TELL THE VIEWERS AT HOME HOW TO

PARTICIPATE.

>>ANYONE THAT IS INTERESTED

THEY CAN CALL ME 904-633-0066.

WE’RE LOOKING FOR GENERALLY

HEALTHY WOMEN AT RISK FOR

PREGNANCY WITH NO DESIRE TO GET

PREGNANT BUT THAT WOULD LIKE TO

PARTICIPATE IN THE CLINICAL

TRIAL.

>>THAT NUMBER AGAIN?

>>WE’LL PUT IT UP ON THE

WEBSITE.

THAT WAY IF YOU MISSED IT, THIS

WILL BE UP THERE TO GET THAT

NUMBER THERE.
