Materials and methods. Ninety-six patients with PCOS and 93 healthy control subjects were included in the study. Insulin resistance was estimated via HOMA-IR. Serum adiponectin levels were measured by ELISA. For determination of adiponectin gene polymorphisms, PCR was performed with appropriate primers after genomic DNA was obtained from the peripheral blood of the patients and control subjects.
