The current study was conducted to investigate the therapeutic effects of atorvastatin (ATV) and resveratrol (RVT) in sole and simultaneous forms of administration against the symbiosis between glucose transporters 1 and 3 (GLUT-1 and GLUT-3), monocarboxylate transporters 1 a and 4 (MCT-1 and MCT-4) and neovascularization in ectopic endometrial tissue (EET). For this purpose, the experimental endometriosis was induced in 24 virgin female Wistar rats, and then the rats were divided into non-treated endometriosis-induced (ENDO-sole), AVT-treated (5 mg kg-1), RVT-treated (40 mg kg-1) and AVT +RVT-treated groups (n = 6 rats in each group). Following 28 days from the experimental endometriosis induction, the EETs were collected and the EETs size, neovascularization ratio, and expression levels of GLUT-1, GLUT-3, MCT-1, and MCT-4 were analyzed by qRT-PCR and immunohistochemistry (IHC).
