“Intestinal Permeability and Endometriosis”
The objective of this project will be to determine whether patients with a surgical diagnosis of endometriosis have impaired intestinal permeability as compared with healthy controls. This would suggest the presence of an environmentally triggered and intestinally mediated association in the etiology of endometriosis. This would be a proof of concept trial to establish whether there is in fact a relationship worthy of future research.
