ASRM and other Meetings
ASRM Review: Using a Danazol-Loaded IUD for Treatment of Uterine Adenomyosis
Uterine adenomyosis is a condition in which endometriosis has infiltrated the walls of the uterus. It can be treated via hysterectomy, but this is not a viable option in women who wish to retain their fertility.
ASRM Review: Aging and the Brain: Restoring Neurologic Functioning Through Hormone Replacement Therapy
Many changes that occur with age are written off as inevitable consequences of the getting older. Indeed, these effects are often the subject of humorous comments, even amongst affected individuals. In recent years, however, increasing research in a wide variety of fields has drawn these assumptions of inevitability into question.
ASRM Review: Apoptosis in Endometrial Glandular and Stromal Cells in Women with and Without Endometriosis
The researchers in this study hypothesized that spontaneous apoptosis, or programmed cell death may play an important role in endometriosis. The reasoning behind this theory is that, during the menstrual cycle, cells in the endometrium will die off and conclude that phase of the endometrium.
ASRM Review: Prevention of Bone Loss during Long-Term GnRH Agonist Therapy for Endometriosis
Previous research has demonstrated that GnRH analogues/agonists are an effective treatment for endometriosis and fibroids. However, currently, treatment is normally limited to a six-month duration because of the negative effects that GnRH agonist (GnRH AG) therapy can have on bone mineral density (BMD).
