Menstrual Blood Cells May Be Key to a New Diagnostic Test

ROSE researcher Dr. Christine Metz tackles two significant barriers to endometriosis care: delayed diagnosis and lack of effective treatment. The ROSE research team (winner of the 2018 Northwell Innovation Challenge), under the direction of Dr. Peter Gregersen, comprises Feinstein Institute scientists and professionals, including EndoFound co-founder Dr. Tamer Seckin. The program is in partnership with EndoFound and develops a better way to diagnose and treat the condition. Learn more about the team’s critical work today.

New Research on Endometriosis-Related Infertility
Endofound Shop

Over on EndoNews, researchers published a study in Gynecological Endocrinology on how low-dose aspirin may be a potential treatment for endometriosis-related infertility. By downregulating progesterone resistance and increasing the expression of leukemia inhibitory factor (LIF) during the implantation window, low-dose aspirin could improve endometrial receptivity and increase the pregnancy rate. This was a study conducted in an animal model of endometriosis and more research is needed to confirm any potential effect of low-dose aspirin on infertility in patients with endometriosis.
