Ovulation Induction Drug Therapy for Anovulatory Infertility Associated with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome

Alberta Heritage Foundation for Medical Research (AHFMR) HTA Report #33.

This report is a systematic review and critical appraisal of the evidence on the use of ovulation induction (OI) drug therapy to manage anovulatory infertility associated with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) in women of reproductive age. The aim was to provide the current published scientific evidence about its safety and efficacy/effectiveness in terms of pregnancy rate in this category of infertile patients in response to a request for information from Alberta Health and Wellness.
