Generation of immortalized human endometrial stromal cell lines with different endometriosis risk genotypes.

Mol Hum Reprod 2019 Feb 16. Epub 2019 Feb 16.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology and Gynaecology Research Centre, Royal Women's Hospital, University of Melbourne, Parkville, Victoria, Australia.

Endometriotic lesions are composed in part of endometrial-like stromal cells, however, there is a shortage of immortalized human endometrial stromal cultures available for research. As genetic factors play a role in endometriosis risk, it is important that genotype is also incorporated into analysis of pathological mechanisms. Human telomerase reverse transcriptase (hTERT) immortalization (using Lenti-hTERT-green fluorescent protein virus) took place following genotype selection; 13 patients homozygous for either the risk or non-risk 'other' allele for one or more important endometriosis risk single nucleotide polymorphism on chromosome 1p36.

PAX8: A Highly Sensitive Marker for the Glands in Extragenital Endometriosis.

Reprod Sci 2019 Feb 14:1933719119828095. Epub 2019 Feb 14.

1 Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, University of Tokyo, Tokyo, Japan.

In cases of extragenital endometriosis or microscopic endometriosis lesions, pathological diagnosis can be challenging because endometriotic stroma and glands represent only a minor component of fibrotic endometriotic lesions. For better accuracy of diagnosis, the development of a sensitive and specific epithelial marker is beneficial. Previous studies showed that PAX8 is a highly sensitive and specific marker for primary and metastatic Mullerian epithelial tumors. Read More

A comprehensive review of hormonal and biological therapies for endometriosis: latest developments.

Expert Opin Biol Ther 2019 Feb 14. Epub 2019 Feb 14.

a Academic Unit of Obstetrics and Gynecology , Ospedale Policlinico San Martino , Largo R. Benzi 10, 16132 Genoa , Italy.

Introduction: Endometriosis is a chronic benign estrogen dependent disease characterized by the presence of endometriotic glands and stroma outside the uterine cavity. Although combined hormonal contraceptives and progestins, currently available first-line treatments for endometriosis, are efficacious and well tolerated for treating disease-related pain, some women experience partial or no improvement of pain or its recurrence is frequent after discontinuation of the therapies. For these reasons, new drugs are under investigation for the treatment of endometriosis. Read More

MiR-210-3p protects endometriotic cells from oxidative stress-induced cell cycle arrest by targeting BARD1.

Cell Death Dis 2019 Feb 13;10(2):144. Epub 2019 Feb 13.

Assisted Reproduction Unit, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Sir Run Run Shaw Hospital, Zhejiang University School of Medicine, No. 3 Qingchun East Road, Jianggan District, 310016, Hangzhou, China.

Endometriosis is associated with benign but adversely developed cysts in the extrauterine environment. The oxidative imbalanced environment induces DNA damage and affects cell cycle progression of endometrial stromal cells (ESCs) and endometrial epithelial cells, but how endometriotic cells maintain proliferation in the presence of oxidative stress is not clear. Growing evidence has indicated that the ectopic hypoxic microenvironment and oxidative stress can stimulate the growth of endometriotic cells, which is mainly due to the increase of HIF-1α.

Genomic evidence of Y chromosome microchimerism in the endometrium during endometriosis and in cases of infertility.

Reprod Biol Endocrinol 2019 Feb 13;17(1):22. Epub 2019 Feb 13.

Department of Physiology, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi, India.

Background: Previous studies, which were primarily based on the fluorescent in-situ hybridisation (FISH) technique, revealed conflicting evidence regarding male foetal microchimerism in endometriosis. FISH is a relatively less sensitive technique, as it is performed on a small portion of the sample. Additionally, the probes used in the previous studies specifically detected centromeric and telomeric regions of Y chromosome, which are gene-sparse heterochromatised regions. Read More

Reduced α-2,6 sialylation regulates cell migration in endometriosis.

Hum Reprod 2019 Feb 12. Epub 2019 Feb 12.

Département 'Développement, Reproduction et Cancer', Institut Cochin, INSERM U1016 (Professeur Batteux), Université Paris Descartes, Sorbonne Paris Cité, 22 Rue Méchain, Paris, France.

Study Question: Is endometriosis associated with aberrant sialylation patterns and what is the potential impact of such anomalies on cell migratory properties?

Summary Answer: The reduced α-2,6 sialylation patterns in the peritoneal fluid of endometriosis-affected women and in stromal and epithelial cells from endometriotic lesions could be associated with enhanced cell migration.

What Is Known Already: Endometriosis is considered to be a benign disease although, like cancer, it has the characteristic of being an invasive disease with cells that have an enhanced capacity to migrate. Aberrant sialylation has been reported in various malignancies and it has been linked to tumour invasion and metastasis. Read More

Notch activity mediates oestrogen-induced stromal cell invasion in endometriosis.

Reproduction 2019 Feb 1. Epub 2019 Feb 1.

W Xiong, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Union Hospital, Tongji Medical College, Huazhong University of Science and Technology, Wu Han, China.

Oestrogen has been reported to control the invasiveness of endometrial stromal cells in endometriosis. Notch signalling, a master regulator of cell invasion in tumours, is regulated by oestrogen in other diseases and hyperactivated in endometriotic stromal cells. Therefore, we hypothesized that an interaction between Notch signalling and oestrogen may exist in the regulation of endometrial stromal cell invasion, which is essential for the development of endometriosis.

Functional expression of the mechanosensitive PIEZO1 channel in primary endometrial epithelial cells and endometrial organoids.

Sci Rep 2019 Feb 11;9(1):1779. Epub 2019 Feb 11.

Laboratory of Endometrium, Endometriosis & Reproductive Medicine, Department of Development and Regeneration, KU Leuven, Herestraat 49 box 611, 3000, Leuven, Belgium.

Successful pregnancy requires the establishment of a complex dialogue between the implanting embryo and the endometrium. Knowledge regarding molecular candidates involved in this early communication process is inadequate due to limited access to primary human endometrial epithelial cells (EEC). Since pseudo-pregnancy in rodents can be induced by mechanical scratching of an appropriately primed uterus, this study aimed to investigate the expression of mechanosensitive ion channels in EEC.

microRNAs in endometriosis: Biological function and emerging biomarker candidates.

Biol Reprod 2019 Feb 4. Epub 2019 Feb 4.

Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Sciences, Yale School of Medicine, New Haven, CT 06520, USA.

MicroRNAs (miRNAs), a class of small non-coding RNA molecules, have been recognized as key post-transcriptional regulators associated with a multitude of human diseases. Global expression profiling studies have uncovered hundreds of miRNAs that are dysregulated in several diseases, and yielded many candidate biomarkers. This review will focus on miRNAs in endometriosis, a common chronic disease affecting nearly 10% of reproductive-aged women, which can cause pelvic pain, infertility, and a myriad of other symptoms.

Endometriosis biomarkers: Will co-development in academia-industry partnerships result in new and robust noninvasive diagnostic tests?

Biol Reprod 2019 Feb 1. Epub 2019 Feb 1.

Department of Development and Regeneration, Biomedical Sciences Group, KU Leuven (University of Leuven), Belgium.

Endometriosis is an important gynecological disease, affecting 10% of reproductive age women, and associated with pain, infertility, reduced quality of life and high health economic cost. Except for ultrasound detection of ovarian endometriotic cysts, the gold standard for diagnosis is laparoscopy, leading to diagnostic delays of 5-10 years. Accurate noninvasive biomarkers are needed, especially for symptomatic women with a normal gynecological ultrasound, to triage them towards medical or surgical treatment and to monitor their treatment outcome.

The Inhibiting Effect of Dinitrosyl Iron Complexes with Thiol-containing Ligands on the Growth of Endometrioid Tumours in Rats with Experimental Endometriosis.

Cell Biochem Biophys 2019 Feb 1. Epub 2019 Feb 1.

N.N. Semenov Institute of Chemical Physics, Russian Academy of Sciences, Moscow, Russia.

The possibility that binuclear dinitrosyl iron complexes with glutathione and cysteine (DNIC-GSН and B-DNIC-Cys) have a strong cytotoxic effect on the growth of endometrioid tumours (EMT) in rats with surgically induced experimental endometriosis established in our previous studies has been supported with experimental data. The increase in the DNIC-GSН or B-DNIC-Cys dose from 10 (in our previous studies) to 20 μmol/kg (after i/p administration to experimental rats) fully suppressed the growth of uterine tissues implanted onto the inner surface of the abdominal wall. At 2 μmol/kg DNIC-GSН, the median value of EMT volume increased from 0 to 15 mm, while the mean size of EMT-from 55 to 77 mm (data from EMT measurements in 10 experimental rats). Read More

Surgical Management of Superficial Peritoneal Adolescent Endometriosis.

J Pediatr Adolesc Gynecol 2019 Jan 29. Epub 2019 Jan 29.

Division of Gynecology, Department of Surgery, Boston Children's Hospital; Division of Minimally Invasive Surgery, Brigham & Women's Hospital; Boston Center for Endometriosis; Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts.

Background: Adolescent endometriosis typically presents as Stage I with superficial peritoneal disease [SPD] and less commonly as Stage III or IV with deeply infiltrative disease [DIE]. Endometriosis lesions can be destroyed (cautery or laser), cutting out the discrete lesion with excision and destroyed, or radically excised with removal of the lesion and surrounding tissue. It has been shown to be beneficial to excise DIE to improve pain. Read More

Identification of a Benzimidazolecarboxylic Acid Derivative (BAY 1316957) as a Potent and Selective Human Prostaglandin E2 Receptor Subtype 4 (hEP4-R) Antagonist for the Treatment of Endometriosis.

J Med Chem 2019 Feb 1. Epub 2019 Feb 1.

The presence and growth of endometrial tissue outside the uterine cavity in endometriosis patients is primarily driven by hormone-dependent and inflammatory processes - the latter being frequently associated with severe, acute and chronic pelvic pain. The EP4 subtype of prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) receptors (EP4-R) is a particularly promising anti-inflammatory and anti-nociceptive target as both this receptor subtype and the pathways forming PGE2 are highly expressed in endometriotic lesions. High-throughput screening resulted in the identification of benzimidazole derivatives as novel hEP4-R antagonists. Read More
