What is Endometriosis and is there a cure?
« on: 11/01/2015 18:30:01 »
Adrian Pepper asked the Naked Scientists:
   
In Endometriosis, some of the lining of the womb (the endometrium) migrates to other parts of the body causing pain and bleeding at inappropriate times and in inappropriate places. This sounds a bit like a cancerous spread.

What work is going on to counter this horrid process in the 3.5% women (= 2million UK women), please? Is there any hope for an genetic engineering approach for a cure?

What do you think?
