Section of Molecular Pathology and Human Genetics, Department of Internal Medicine, School of Medicine, University of Crete, Heraklion 71003, Greece.

Endometriosis is a pathological condition which has been extensively studied, since its pathophysiology stems from a broad spectrum of environmental influences and genetic factors. Familial studies aim at defining inheritance trends, while linkage analysis studies focus on the identification of genetic sites related to endometriosis susceptibility. Genetic association studies take into account candidate genes and single nucleotide polymorphisms, and hence target at unraveling the association between disease severity and genetic variation.

Endometriosis in MRKH Cases as a Proof for the Coelomic Metaplasia Hypothesis?

Reproduction 2019 Apr 1. Epub 2019 Apr 1.

I Meinhold-Heerlein, Institute of Gynecology and Obstetrics, Justus Liebig Universitat Giessen, Giessen, Germany.

The diagnosis of endometriosis is based upon the histological identification of endometrial tissue at ectopic sites which are commonly located on the pelvic organs, the peritoneum and ovary. In rare cases, ectopic lesions can be found in other organs, such as kidney, bladder, lung or brain. Diagnosis is achieved by laparoscopic intervention followed by histological confirmation of endometriotic tissue. Read More

ENDORECT: a preoperative score to accurately predict rectosigmoid involvement in patients with endometriosis.

Hum Reprod Open 2019 3;2019(2):hoz007. Epub 2019 Apr 3.

EA 7285 Research Unit 'Risk and Safety in Clinical Medicine for Women and Perinatal Health', Versailles-Saint-Quentin University (UVSQ), Montigny-le-Bretonneux, France.

Study Question: Could we construct and validate a preoperative score to predict rectosigmoid involvement in endometriosis (RE)?

Summary Answer: We developed a simple preoperative score (ENDORECT) to predict RE.

What Is Known Already: Accurate preoperative classification is important to optimize the surgical approach for patients with endometriosis but there is currently no reliable first-line examination to determine RE.

Study Design Size Duration: This was a single-centre observational study including all women ( = 119) who underwent complete surgery for endometriosis between January 2011 and June 2016 in the Gynaecological Department of the University Hospital of Poissy Saint-Germain en Laye. Read More

Accuracy of transvaginal sonography versus magnetic resonance imaging in the diagnosis of rectosigmoid endometriosis: Systematic review and meta-analysis.

PLoS One 2019 9;14(4):e0214842. Epub 2019 Apr 9.

Santa Casa de Misericórdia de Sao Paulo, Sao Paulo, Brazil.

Introduction: Intestinal endometriosis is considered the most severe form of deep endometriosis, the rectosigmoid being involved in about 90% of cases of bowel infiltration. Transvaginal sonography (TVS) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) have been used for noninvasive diagnosis and preoperative mapping of rectosigmoid endometriosis (RE), but no consensus has been reached so far regarding which method is the most accurate in this setting.

Objective: We aimed at performing a systematic review and meta-analysis to compare the accuracy of TVS versus MRI in the diagnosis of RE in a same population. Read More

S100 proteins: An emerging cynosure in pregnancy & adverse reproductive outcome.

Indian J Med Res 2018 Dec;148(Supplement):S100-S106

Department of Molecular & Human Genetics, Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi, India.

S100 proteins are calcium (Ca)-binding proteins and these have an important function in progression, manifestation and therapeutic aspects of various inflammatory, metabolic and neurodegenerative disorders. Based on their involvement in intracellular or extracellular regulatory effects, S100 proteins are classified into three subgroups: one subgroup is specialized in exerting only intracellular effects, other performs both intracellular and extracellular functions and the third subgroup members only display extracellular regulatory effects. S100 proteins are expressed particularly in vertebrates and have cell-specific expression. Read More
