Endometrium biopsy is a useful indicator of endometrium proliferation and is clinically relevant to diagnose cell proliferation and to evaluate response to progestin treatment and to monitor hormone replacement therapy. The aim of our study was to investigate the in vitro effects of progesterone and synthetic progestins on endometrium explants with a particular focus on estradiol receptor (ER) and progesterone receptor (PR) expression which reflects through cell secretion the hormone treatment… CONTINUE READING
