Proteins and pathogens in endometriosis

One in ten women of child-bearing age suffer from endometriosis, a painful uterine condition causing pain and even disability. It can also lead to infertility. Despite its prevalence and serious consequences, the medical community does not know what causes it nor are effective treatments available. To make matters worse, definitive diagnosis requires invasive surgery. The EU-funded GLYCOMENDO project hopes to elucidate disease processes, leading to simpler diagnosis and potentially more effective treatments. The focus is on changes in levels of certain sugars on proteins and microbes in samples with mild and severe stage of endometriosis compared to controls. Outcomes could lead to biomarkers for non-invasive and accurate diagnosis of this disease and to lower rates of infertility.
