Concerning means of follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) and estradiol hormone were insignificant different (p>0.05) in affected women with PCOs in acomparison with control. Regarding means of inflammatory cytokines including C- Reactive proteins (CRP), interleukin- 6 (IL-6), and leptin have been showed a significant increase (p<0.05) in women with PCOS in a comparison with healthy control women.
