Altered expression of interleukin-18 in the ectopic and eutopic
endometrium of women with endometriosis.
We aimed to investigate the expression pattern of apelin in eutopic and ectopic endometrial tissues according to possible angiogenic function of apelin.
Eutopic and ectopic endometrial samples were obtained from 45 women aged 18 to 40 years, and a BMI of 18.
The medial left fallopian tube was also lined by endometrium for a short distance, and this endometrium resembled the eutopic
endometrium, being menstrual in type (Figure 2).
Messinis: In my view, this is related to the lack of specific substances secreted from the ectopic trophoblast that would be unique to this tissue and not produced from the eutopic
His original observation came when he operated women at the time of menstruation and found that the peritoneal lesions were bleeding, similarly to what happens in eutopic endometrium, proving to him that the tissue outside the uterus was of endometrial origin.
Decidual transformation was consistently demonstrated in the eutopic endometrium and was present in the ectopic endometrium in all of the five instances in which it was obtained for study.
The relationship between microvessel density, proliferative activity and expression of vascular endothelial growth factor-A and its receptors in eutopic
endometrium and endometriotic lesions.
Increased glycosylation of serum human chorionic gonadotropin and subunits from eutopic
and ectopic sources: comparison with placental and urinary forms.
Expression of the epidermal growth factor system in eutopic
endometrium from women with endometriosis differs from that in endometrium from healthy women.
production of human chorionic gonadotropin-[beta] (hCG[beta]) and luteinizing hormone-[beta] (hLH[beta]) in the human testis.
Expression of dioxin-related transactivating factors and target genes in human eutopic
endometrial and endometriotic tissues.
