Approximately 7-12% of women in reproductive age are affected by PCOS and 40 to 70 percent of them are overweight contributing to the clinical picture of PCOS and increased reproductive and metabolic disorder. In order to investigate the role of PAl-1 as a possible risk factor for the development of PCOS a group of 67 women with polycystic ovarian disease and 70 healthy controls were investigated for levels of PAI-1 and carriage of the promoter polymorphism 675 4G/5G in gene of PAl-1. The results of the DNA analysis showed a high carriage of polymorphism 675 4G/4G in promoter of PAI-1 gene in women with PCOS but not as significant (OR = 1.6645, p = 0.141). Serum levels of PAI-1 were significantly higher in total group of patients compared to controls. The levels of PAI-1 is correlated with carriage of 675 4G/5G polymorphism in the gene for PAI-1 (R = 0.534, p = 0.03) as well as wih BMI, like correlation coefficients were higher in the group with PCOS (0.572, p = 0.04). Data from the disease history showed a higher percentage of women with reproductive problems: 61.5% (early pregnancy loss and infertility) significantly higher in the group with PCOS (70.1% compared to 54.1%). The carriers of polymorphism 4G are at greater risk for early pregnancy loss than those with 5G (61.45% as compared to 36.8%), which confirms that carriage of the polymorphism 4G/5G 675 gene PAI-1 has a specific in multifactorial pathogenesis and expression of PCOS.
