Research on endometriosis, which affects women’s reproductive health, is extremely important, and Australia is home to some of the most talented endometrial researchers in the world.
Endometriosis has the potential to severely impact the lives of affected women. There is currently no effective therapy or cure for the condition, and it can take anywhere from seven to ten years for a woman to receive a diagnosis of the condition.
In addition to becoming the first people in the world to find stem cells in the endometrium, the researchers have also made key findings that contribute to a better understanding of how menstruation occurs.
Researchers believe that by gaining a deeper knowledge of the condition, they will be able to create a non-invasive early diagnostic test, study the possibility of non-surgical and non-hormonal treatment options, and enhance the identification of infertility in women who have endometriosis.
