9781573313810: Endometriosis: Emerging Research and Intervention Strategies (Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences)

Endometriosis is a common disorder, probably underdiagnosed, that is a significant cause of infertility and has a major impact on the quality of women's lives. In this volume, leading scientists and clinicians present the current status of our knowledge about endometriosis. Topics include findings from research on endometrial cell functions, extracellular matrix components, and steroid hormone receptors in eutopic and ectopic tissues. In addition, clinical advances in the management of endometriosis are presented, including new treatments and genetic and demographic analyses of occurrence of the disease. Special attention is paid to the significance of environmental factors in inducing endometriosis.
