A group of researchers at the Queensland Institute of Medical Research (QIMR) has revealed after a latest study that genes linked to endometriosis may bring about treatment for painful gynecological condition.
Australian, Japanese and European women, some 5640 in number, who were patients of endometriosis, were enrolled in the study. The same has uncovered that four new gene regions are somehow connected to the condition.
The disease is experienced when the endometrium tissue starts to grow outside the uterus till other pelvic organs. It has been found that the tissue is present in the lining of the uterus. It has been told that 10% of all women in Australia face infertility due to the illness. Also, sometimes, their menstrual cycles are interrupted and they suffer pelvic pain.
But, the problem widens as the illness is tough to be diagnosed. Women also face scars and tissue damages. With the new discovery, it is being hoped to develop a cure that detects the disease on time.
"These discoveries will help us identify the underlying biological mechanisms of endometriosis, which we can ultimately use to develop new diagnostics and treatments", Associate Professor Dale Nyholt was quoted as affirming by sources.
