Progress on macrophage's proinflammatory products as markers of acute endometriosis

Publication date: Available online 10 July 2015 Source:Journal of Acute Disease Author(s): Alicja Ziętek, Konrad Futyma, Łukasz Nowakowski, Marek Gogacz, Tomasz Rechberger To provide the review of the macrophage activity products as pathophysiological markers of endometriosis by literature survey (PubMed, Cochrane). Immunoreactive cells and several of their synthesis products concentrations are elevated in the serum and peritoneal fluid in patients with endometriosis. The enhanced reactive proteins contributed to local inflammation and aggregation of endometriotic lesions. Immune response and immune surveillance of tissue play an important role in pathogenesis of endometriosis. Activated macrophages in peritoneal environment secrete immunoreactive cytokines which are responsible for inflammatory cascade of reactions. The immunoreactive cytokines should be a target not only as a disease marker but also as a part of therapeutic protocol.

AbstractIntroductionEndometriosis symptoms are nonspecific and overlap with other gynecologic and gastrointestinal diseases, leading to long diagnostic delays. The burden of endometriosis has been documented; however, little is known about the impact of diagnostic delays on healthcare costs leading up to diagnoses. The purpose of this study was to examine the economic impact of diagnostic delays on pre-diagnosis healthcare utilization and costs among patients with endometriosis.MethodsThis was a retrospective database study of adult patients with a diagnosis of endometriosis from 1 January 2004 to 31 July 2016. Patients ha...

Abstract Endometriosis is a common gynecological disease, which causes chronic pelvic pain and infertility in women of reproductive age. Due to limited efficacy of current treatment options, a critical need exists to develop new and effective treatments for endometriosis. Niclosamide is an efficacious and FDA-approved drug for the treatment of helminthosis in humans that has been used for decades. We have reported that niclosamide reduces growth and progression of endometriosis-like lesions via targeting STAT3 and NFĸB signaling in a mouse model of endometriosis. To examine the effects of niclosamide on macrophag...

CONCLUSION: In conclusion, chitinases can be used as potential biomarkers in prognosis and diagnosis of several inflammatory diseases and allergies and the design of novel chitinase inhibitors may act as key and rational scaffolds in designing of some novel therapeutic agents in the treatment of variety of inflammatory diseases.

Authors: Fichera M, Török P, Tesarik J, Della Corte L, Rizzo G, Garzon S, Carlea A, Di Angelo Antonio S, Zito G, Panella MM Abstract Vitamin D is an important nutrient involved in many fundamental health outcomes. However, its influence on female reproductive function remains ambiguous. Cholecalciferol seems to have a role in the reproductive processes and in the patients affected by polycystic ovary syndrome, endometriosis, uterine myomas and premature ovarian failure. Moreover, it may play an important role in the assisted reproductive techniques, given that it is capable of influencing oocyte quality, ...

Endometriosis is a chronic painful disease highly prevalent in women that is defined by growth of endometrial tissue outside the uterine cavity and lacks adequate treatment. Medical use of cannabis derivatives is a current hot topic and it is unknown whether phytocannabinoids may modify endometriosis symptoms and development. Here we evaluate the effects of repeated exposure to Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) in a mouse model of surgically-induced endometriosis. In this model, female mice develop mechanical hypersensitivity in the caudal abdomen, mild anxiety-like behavior and substantial memory deficits associated wit...

Abstract Netrin-1 is an extracellular guidance cue of neuronal navigation, mediated through interaction with its main receptors, and is known to be crucial in the development of multiple chronic inflammatory diseases. However, the expression pattern and mechanism of netrin-1 in endometriosis are currently undefined. Here we report that netrin-1 expression peaked in peritoneal macrophages found in endometriosis. Netrin-1 induced angiogenesis in ovarian endometriomas through interaction with CD146 in vascular endothelial cells. Through another receptor, neogenin, netrin-1 promoted neurite growth and sensitization in...
