Abstract

The circulating follistatin and high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hsCRP) concentrations were significantly higher in 155 Taiwanese women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) than in 37 healthy controls. Follistatin and hsCRP levels in both the PCOS and control groups were significantly correlated with each other independent of obesity and insulin resistance.
