AntiMullerian Hormone

Alternative Name:

ANTI-MULLERIAN (AMH)

Clinical Utility:

Anti-Mullerian hormone (AMH) is expressed in the ovarian granulosa cells. In women of child-bearing age AMH can be used as a surrogate biomarker of ovarian reserve. Low values may correspond to a low number of viable ovocytes, resulting in minimal or less responsiveness to IVF treatment. A rapidly decreasing level may indicate the imminent onset of menopause. Elevated levels of AMH are associated with polycystic ovary disease (PCOS).
