[Total oxidative status of peritoneal fluid in women with endometriosis].

Abstract

Pathophysiology of endometriosis remains enigmatic despite extensive investigations. Accumulating data suggest that oxidative stress in the peritoneal cavity may be implicated in the pathogenesis of endometriosis.

AIM

The aim of our study was to evaluate the oxidative status of peritoneal fluid (PF) in women with and without endometriosis.

MATERIAL AND METHODS

Sixty-five women participated in the study 40 women with endometriosis constituted the study group and 25 patients with functional follicle ovarian cysts comprised the reference group. Total oxidative status of PF was determined using a commercially available colorimetric assay kit (Immundiagnostic AG, Cat. nr. KC5100).

RESULTS

Women with endometriosis had significantly higher PF oxidative status compared to women with follicle ovarian cysts. No significant difference in the peritoneal oxidative status was found between patients with stage I/II endometriosis, and women with stage III/IV endometriotic disease.

CONCLUSIONS

Disrupted oxidative status in the peritoneal cavity of women with endometriosis plays a role in the pathogenesis of the disease.
