PCOS Challenge: The National PCOS Association


Help Shape and Accelerate the Development of New PCOS Treatments

Participate in the PCOS Patient-Focused Drug Development Meeting

Meeting Overview
No treatments have ever been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) specifically for PCOS. PCOS Challenge has organized the PCOS Externally-Led Patient-Focused Drug-Development Meeting as a listening session for the FDA, pharmaceutical company representatives, researchers, and doctors to hear directly from you about your lived experience with PCOS and your perspective on current and future treatments and clinical trials.
The insights from this meeting will help guide pharma/industry stakeholder's and the FDA's decision-making processes regarding drug development and approval.
Why Is It Important for You to Attend This Meeting?
This is the only PFDD meeting that will ever be done for PCOS. Participating in this meeting grants you the unprecedented opportunity to help influence the development of new PCOS-focused treatments, tests and technologies.
Other Benefits Include:
  • Educating government and pharmaceutical company representatives about the challenges of living with PCOS and getting the care you need.
  • Sharing your perspectives on the effectiveness of existing treatment and management options.
  • Highlighting your needs and priorities for new treatments.

About Polycystic Ovary Syndrome

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) affects up to 15 percent of women in the U.S. and over 21 percent in some parts of the world. Despite affecting hundreds of millions of women globally, most people are uninformed about the syndrome. PCOS is a serious genetic, hormone, metabolic and reproductive disorder that can lead to lifelong complications, psychosocial disorders, obesity, cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, infertility, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, endometrial cancer, maternal/fetal health complications and other conditions. PCOS is a leading cause of female infertility and the most common endocrine (hormone) disorder in women. There is currently no cure for PCOS, so it is important that patients and healthcare providers learn effective ways of managing PCOS and its many symptoms and associated health risks.
