Summary

Endometriosis, a cause of pelvic pain, infertility, and pelvic and abdominal organ damage, affects about 4% of reproductive age women in the United States, with an estimated cost of $22 billion. The proposed research will produce a better understanding of the role of progesterone in endometriosis, identification of critically needed biomarkers, as well as provide a better understanding of cellular and molecular mechanisms of disease. The information gained will allow development of better diagnostic tests and therapy.
