The NICHD conducts and supports a variety of clinical research projects related to uterine fibroids. Select a link below to learn more about these projects.
Featured NICHD Clinical Trials
- Fat Mediated Modulation of Reproductive and Endocrine Function in Young Athletes
This trial aims to determine which changes in body composition and hormones differentiate athletes who stop getting their periods, athletes who continue to get their periods, and non-athletes. It also studies whether estrogen given as a pill or a patch (versus no estrogen) increases bone density and improves bone structure in adolescent athletes who are not getting their periods because of low estrogen.
- Pulsatile GnRH in Anovulatory Infertility
The trial will explore the effects of synthetic gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) upon the pituitary gland and the ovaries of women with infertility. Women diagnosed with GnRH deficiency, hypothalamic amenorrhea, acquired hypogonadic hypogonadism, or polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) will participate in this study. Researchers hope the administration of GnRH will lead to proper stimulation of the pituitary gland and to normal ovulation and menstruation.
- Ovarian Follicle Function in Patients with Premature Ovarian Failure
No proven therapy to restore ovarian function and fertility is available to patients with karyotypically normal spontaneous premature ovarian failure. This study will evaluate patients and, if possible, determine suitability for therapeutic research protocols.
- Inherited Reproductive Disorders
This study will evaluate patients with reproductive disorders, including low hormone levels that delay or prevent puberty and the problem of precocious puberty, to learn how they may be inherited.
- Gondanotropin Levels in Puberty and Fertility
Researchers want to study patients with low levels or total lack of GnRH to better understand how it affects puberty and fertility.
