What Are Premature Ovarian Failure Clinical Trials?

Premature Ovarian Failure, more aptly called Primary Ovarian Insufficiency (POI), is a condition where a woman’s ovaries lose their normal functioning before the age of 40. The affected ovaries do not release eggs regularly or produce typical amounts of estrogen, often leading to infertility.

Premature Ovarian Failure clinical trials are tests for new and more advanced drugs and treatment approaches to lessen the impact, alleviate symptoms, and help more women retain their fertility.

Why Is Premature Ovarian Failure Being Studied Through Clinical Trials?

About 5% to 10% of women affected by this ovarian insufficiency get pregnant without any medical intervention, a phenomenon called spontaneous remission. Several others are able to conceive with treatment.

With premature ovarian failure clinical trials, researchers are looking for ways (drugs and treatments) to artificially induce remission and increase the successful treatment percentage so more women can retain their fertility and, if they want, conceive and give birth safely. The trials also help find more effective treatments for symptoms, make the condition more manageable, and retain/improve the quality of life by preventing or reducing the risk of other health conditions that ovarian insufficiency may cause.

What Are The Types of Treatments Available For Premature Ovarian Failure?

Currently, there’s no proven treatment for restoring the ovaries’ normal function. But there are ways to improve symptoms of premature ovarian failure, lower health risks, and help improve the odds of conceiving. Some of the treatments used for premature ovarian failure include:

  • Hormone replacement therapy
  • In-vitro fertilization
  • Calcium and vitamin D supplements
  • Healthy weight maintenance
  • Regular physical activity

What Are Some Recent Breakthrough Clinical Trials For Premature Ovarian Failure?

2021: A literature review conducted by Chinese researchers found that mesenchymal stem cell (MSC) therapy can have curative effects for premature ovarian failure. The study evaluated MSCs taken from different sources and found them all equally effective in the treatment. MSC therapy, the researchers concluded, could be a viable treatment option for premature ovarian failure and may even help restore the lost reproductive function.

2021: An animal study conducted by Chinese researchers found a TCM formula – Hy yang yang kun (Hyyk) – to have protective effects on ovarian function in premature ovarian insufficiency. The drug is found to work by promoting the development of follicles, providing evidence for the drug to likely emerge as an alternative treatment for premature ovarian failure.

Who Are Some Of The Key Opinion Leaders / Researchers / Institutions Conducting Premature Ovarian Failure Clinical Trial Research?

NICHD: The government organization that falls under the US Department of Health and Human Services is actively conducting and supporting epidemiological studies, lab research projects, and clinical trials to understand, prevent, and treat primary ovarian insufficiency and its associated health conditions.

Society for Women’s Health Research: SWHR is a Washington-based NGO working to transform women’s health through research, advocacy, and education.
