OBJECTIVE: Multiple genetic variants have been studied for years to try to find an association with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). This meta-analysis will investigate if there are associations between increased risk of PCOS and rs6165 polymorphism in follicle stimulating hormone receptor (FSHR) gene and rs2479106 polymorphism in differentially expressed in Differentially Expressed in Normal and Neoplastic Development Isoform 1A (DENND1A) gene.

METHODS: Studies were identified from PubMed library, and case-control studies with correct polymorphisms and available genotype frequencies were included. The statistical analysis is done in Review Manager 5.3, and odds ratio (OR) with corresponding 95% confidence interval (CI) was calculated to see if any association with PCOS exists.

RESULTS: In the study of FSHR gene, eight articles with 1539 cases and 1877 controls were included. No relations were found between PCOS and rs6165 polymorphism in neither the allelic (OR=1.07, 95% CI=0.97-1.19, p=0.18), recessive (OR=1.21, 95% CI=0.98-1.50, p=0.07) nor the dominant (OR=1.05, 95% CI=0.91-1.20, p=0.53) model. The rs2479106 polymorphism in DENND1A gene included 10 studies with 3627 cases and 20325 controls. Only the Asian subgroup in the recessive model (OR=1.84, 95% CI=1.19-2.85, p=0.006) showed a positive relation with PCOS, while associations were not found within the overall results in the allelic (OR=1.09, 95% CI=0.98-1.21, p=0.10), recessive (OR=1.26, 95% CI=0.73-2.19, p=0.41) or the dominant (OR=1.31, 95% CI=1.00-1.71, p=0.05) model.

CONCLUSIONS: This meta-analysis suggests that rs2479106 polymorphism in DENND1A gene is associated with increased risk of PCOS in the Asian population. No relations were found with increased risk of PCOS and rs6165 polymorphism in FSHR gene.
