Abstract

The aim of this study was to analyze serum a disintegrin-like and metalloproteinase with thrombospondin-type motifs-1 (ADAMTS-1) and aggrecan levels in adolescents and younger-aged females with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) compared with ovulatory controls to determine whether these are potential markers for the prediction of PCOS diagnosis. We also aimed to determine whether they could predict the development of clinical implications associated with PCOS.
