Empiric medical therapies for endometriosis are centered around the idea that ectopic endometrial tissue responds to treatment in a similar manner as normal eutopic
We aimed to investigate the determination characteristics and the availability of MIBI imaging to determine eutopic
and ectopic localized parathyroid adenomas.
Increased Expression of Interleukin 37 in the Eutopic
and Ectopic Endometrium of Patients with Ovarian Endometriosis.
Atypical endometriosis, cytologic and/or architectural atypia (similar to that seen in atypical hyperplasia of eutopic
endometrium) within an endometriotic cyst, may appear worrisome microscopically; however, by itself, it has been shown to have a benign clinical course and does not require extensive surgery.
Jones in 1998 indicated that the women with endometriosis reveal upregulation of the antiapoptotic gene BCL-2 in eutopic
and ectopic endometrium.
The mechanism of recurrence is not fully understood and is generally believed to be the followings: (1) the lesion is not removed cleanly, leading to the recurrence from the residual lesion and (2) eutopic
endometrium is the key factor in the onset of EM.
Effect of GnRH agonist therapy on the expression of human heat shock protein 70 in eutopic
and ectopic endometrial of women with endometriosis.
endometrium in women with endometriosis expresses aberrant gene activation in response to the ovarian steroid hormones.
Besides, the degree of RUNX3 hypermethylation and decreased RUNX3 protein expression in the eutopic
endometrium from the EAOC group was significantly higher than that in the endometriosis (EM) and control endometrium (CE) groups.
published a manuscript in which they provide characterization of the functional phenotype of MSCs in ectopic and eutopic
endometria isolated from women with endometriosis.
No differences in the CpG island methylation of promoter regions were observed between normal eutopic
and ectopic thyroid tissues [22, 57].
