The aim of this study was to elucidate whether peritoneal macrophage (pMO) alterations are a generalized feature in all stages of endometriosis and the effect of hormonal treatment on this leukocyte population. For this purpose we quantified the number of pMO, the expression of HLA-DR antigen (pMO DR+), percentages of pMO that reduced nitro-blue tetrazolium (pMO NBT+), and interleukin-1 (IL-1) and prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) production by pMO from patients with early (stages I/II) and advanced… CONTINUE READING
