Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Endometriosis is a common gynecological disease that adversely affects the health and quality of life of many women worldwide. The disease is associated with different forms of chronic or cyclic pain, as well as reduced fertility. The heterogeneity and many non-specific symptoms of the disease complicate diagnosis and can delay the onset of treatment of women with the disease. Until now, the diagnostic tools and the therapeutic options have been limited. Therefore, there is a need for new and improved diagnostic and treatment tools, developed either based on basic research into the mechanisms leading to the development of the disease, or from clinical research.

The purpose of this Special Issue is to present recent progress made towards improving the diagnostic and treatment options available for women affected by endometriosis. We welcome basic research and clinical studies addressing this issue, as well as comprehensive reviews on this topic. Please contact us if you have further questions about submitting a paper to this Special Issue.
