Hormone Study for girls ages 7-18


Evaluation of adrenal androgen production in normal and obese girls after suppression and stimulation (JCM022)


Solorzano Christine, M

UVa Health System, 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. The study involves taking dexamethasone, a medication that blocks the adrenal glands, and ACTH, a medication that stimulates 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. * Compensation for study completion is $125 in Simon gift cards Contact Information: For more information please contact: • Cinthya Yesenia Obando Perez • 434-243-6911, pcos@virginia.edu • IRB-HSR # 12702
