Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is a common endocrine and metabolic disorder characterized by excessive androgen secretion and is linked with obesity, insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes, and affects up to 17% of women in reproductive age. We have also demonstrated that women with PCOS have epigenetic and transcriptional changes in skeletal muscle and adipose tissue relevant for development of disease3,4.

Goals and Outlines

  • What is polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)?
  • Pathophysiology of PCOS
  • Environmental, epigenetic and genetic mechanisms
  • Developmental programming of disease
  • Transgenerational transmission of PCOS
  • Epigenetic changes in adipose tissue and skeletal muscle in women with PCOS
  • Effect of acupuncture on insulin resistance and epigenetic and transcriptional changes in adipose tissue and skeletal muscle
  • Evaluate and contextualise the issues with acupuncture research relating to dosage and trial design.
  • Analyse the results of a study investigating how specialist acupuncture and TCM practitioners treat women with PCOS in their clinics – and how these new findings compare with the existing literature.
  • Learn how these insights from the coalface can impact on clinical practice and drive future research design.
  • Ongoing acupuncture research in the group
