OBJECTIVE To investigate the expression of interleukin-1 (IL-1) beta messenger ribonucleic acid (mRNA) and IL-1 receptor antagonist (IL-1ra) mRNA in peritoneal macrophages. DESIGN, SETTING Peritoneal fluid (PF) samples were collected from patients who underwent laparoscopy or laparotomy. Northern blot analysis was performed at the reproductive research laboratory. PATIENTS Twenty-six patients with endometriosis, 10 patients with postinflammatory pelvic adhesion, and 12 control women with… CONTINUE READING
