Our current Endometriosis medical research study is a 15 month outpatient
study, with 14 required clinic visits. The study assesses the efficacy and safety
of an oral pill used for the treatment of endometriosis associated pain.
What is Endometriosis?
Endometriosis is an often painful gynecological disorder in which tissue that
normally lines the inside of your uterus grows outside your uterus. Endometriosis
most commonly involves your ovaries, fallopian tubes and the tissue lining your
pelvis. Rarely, endometrial tissue may spread beyond pelvic organs.
With endometriosis, displaced endometrial tissue continues to act as it normally
would — it thickens, breaks down and bleeds with each menstrual cycle. Because
this displaced tissue has no way to exit your body, it becomes trapped. When
endometriosis involves the ovaries, cysts called endometriomas may form.
Surrounding tissue can become irritated, eventually developing scar tissue and
adhesions — abnormal bands of fibrous tissue that can cause pelvic tissues and
organs to stick to each other.
Endometriosis can cause pain — sometimes severe — especially during menstrual
periods. Fertility problems also may develop.
Currently there is no cure for Endometriosis, however there are several treatments
which typically involve pain medication, hormone therapy, and conventional
surgery. Endometriosis Medical Research Study Eligibility
You may be eligible to take part in the study if you:
• Premenopausal female patients aged 18 years to 49 years inclusively
• The subject must have had her most recent surgical and – if available – histological,
diagnosis of pelvic endometriosis (laparoscopy, laparotomy, vaginal fornix or other
biopsy) within up to 10 years before the screening visit.
You may be compensated for time and travel, up to $100 for each completed study
visit and $1/day for your electronic diary entries.
