ollicular fluid sex-steroids, insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I), IGF-I binding protein (IGF-I-BP) and epidermal growth factor were investigated in patients with polycystic ovaries and normally ovulating women, following ovulation induction with gonadotrophins or growth hormone plus gonadotrophins. Growth hormone supplementation enhanced the ovarian response to gonadotrophins, and significantly increased follicular fluid IGF-I in both groups, without affecting follicular fluid epidermal growth factor; growth hormone supplementation significantly decreased follicular fluid androstenedione in both groups.
