Obesity is a worldwide epidemic and a rapidly growing problem in public health. The World Health Organization reports that approximately 1.9 billion adults are overweight, and of these individuals, over 650 million are obese. Excess body mass leads to approximately 200 complications and comorbidities such as diabetes, hypertension, atherosclerosis, ischemic heart disease, infertility, and a range of neoplastic diseases.
The population of women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) continues to grow rapidly, reaching as many as 21% of women depending on the diagnostic criteria used. PCOS and obesity share a number of adverse outcomes such as decreased quality of life and fertility disturbance. Together, these two diseases require an individualized approach for patients, as well as physicians, researchers, and other medical personnel to constantly improve and update knowledge in the field of diagnostics and therapy.
Thus, to address this urgent issue, Clinical and Experimental Obstetrics & Gynecology is soliciting contributions to a Special Issue entitled Polycystic Ovary Disease Causes Symptoms of Obesity. We invite all investigators involved in the rapidly developing areas of obesitology, gynecology, obstetrics, endocrinology, fertility and reproduction, and radiology to submit original papers to this Special Issue. We are especially interested in manuscripts that focus on outcomes of recent in vitro, animal, or human studies that examine the relationship between PCOS and obesity. We are also interested in publishing a broad spectrum of reviews, meta-analyses, case-reports and images revealing how PCOS triggers abnormalities linked to excess body mass and associated complications.
