  • High Tech in Endometriosi ed Infertilità History of Endometriosis 1690 Daniel Shroen early descriptions of what today we call endometriosis and adenomyosis. Disputatio Inauguralis Medica de Ulceribus Ulceri 1776 Roederer, Broughton, Tailford, Duff, Ludgers in the de ulceribus utero molestis observationibus descrived the desease and the simptoms 1769 Arthur Duff described the intense pain of endometriosis, and it was first seen microscopically in the late 1800s. Fondazione Italiana Endometriosi
  • High Tech in Endometriosi ed Infertilità History of Endometriosis 1860 Carl von Rokitansky found endometrial glands in the myometrium and designated this finding as ‘cystosarcoma adenoids uterinum’. Over the following 60 years ‘adenomyoma’ were considered pat hologies separate from the so-called ‘haemorrhagic ovarian cysts’ (endometriosis). Fondazione Italiana Endometriosi
  • High Tech in Endometriosi ed Infertilità History of Endometriosis 1917 Thomas Stephen Cullen researched the ‘mucosal invasion’ already observed by a number of investigators in several parts of the lower abdominal cavity. Cullen clearly identified the epithelial tissue invasion as being made of ‘uterine mucosa’ and defined the mechanism through which the mucosa invades the underlying tissue. Fondazione Italiana Endometriosi
  • High Tech in Endometriosi ed Infertilità History of Endometriosis 1923 J.Sampson created the term ‘endometriosis’. Dr. John Sampson was the first person to hypothesize that retrograde menstruation contributed to endometriosis 1927 Fondazione Italiana Endometriosi
  • High Tech in Endometriosi ed Infertilità History of Endometriosis 1972 C.C.Bird The current definition of adenomyosis : ‘Adenomyosis may be defined as the benign invasion of endometrium into the myometrium, producing a diffusely enlarged uterus which microscopically exhibits ectopic non-neoplastic, endometrial glands and stroma surrounded by the hypertrophic and hyperplastic myometrium’. Fondazione Italiana Endometriosi
  • High Tech in Endometriosi ed Infertilità Theories of the Endometriosis Postulated • Iatrogenic transplantation - Endometriosis is accidentally transported during surgery. • Coelomic Metaplasia - This theory holds that certain cells, when stimulated, can transform themselves into a different kind of cells’. • The hereditary theory - Women with family members who have Endometriosis are more likely, or are susceptible to developing the disease. • Liver disorders - The liver regulates and removes estrogen from the body. If the function of the liver is compromised then serious health problems can emerge, including Endometriosis. • Auto-immune disorder - This disease is an autoimmune disease . Autoimmune diseases are now widely believed to occur based on genetic predisposition that may be triggered by environmental and other external factors. Fondazione Italiana Endometriosi
  • High Tech in Endometriosi ed Infertilità Theories of the Endometriosis Postulated Retrograde menstruation - this theory was postulated in the early 1927 by Dr Sampson. He speculated that during menstruation, a certain amount of menstrual fluid flowed backward from the uterus to ‘shower the pelvic organs and pelvis lining’ with endometrium cells. Fondazione Italiana Endometriosi
  • High Tech in Endometriosi ed Infertilità Retrograde Menstruation Theory Postulated Present in 90% of women does not explain adenomyosis retroperitoneal extra abdominal prepuberal* post hysterectomy prostatic lack of endometriosis in all placentals mammals *An Esp Pediatr. 1996 Apr;44(4):397-8 [Neonatal ovarian endometriosis.

  • High Tech in Endometriosi ed Infertilità Theories of the Endometriosis Proved Embriologic theory - This theory suggests that endometriosis is caused by microscopic remnants of a women's embryonic endometrial tissue (from when she was an embryo), that later develops into endometriosis.

  • High Tech in Endometriosi ed Infertilità Septum Uterus The uterus is formed by the fusion of the two mullerian ducts. During this fusion a resorption process eliminates the partition between the two ducts to create a single cavity. This process begins caudally and advances cranially, thus a complete septum formation represents an earlier disturbance of this absorption than the incomplete form. Causes for incomplete absorption are not known. Heinonen PK (March 2006). "Complete septate uterus with longitudinal vaginal septum". Fertil. Steril. 85 (3): 700–5. Fondazione Italiana Endometriosi

  • High Tech in Endometriosi ed Infertilità Development of the uterus Initial stratification of the uterine wall occurred at 14 WG. At this age, the endometrial epithelium was simple columnar to pseudostratified and consisted of microvillous cells. At 18-20 WG the endometrial epithelium became clearly pseudostratified, with active ciliogenesis and a predominance of microvillous cells. Primordia of tubular glands were present at 20 WG. Microvillous cells still predominated in the endometrial epithelium at 21-22 WG and showed morphological features of apoptosis. The endometrial stroma at this stage was organizing into a thick lamina propria provided with subepithelial capillary plexuses. Our data showed that the epithelial differentiation and distribution in the uterus occur in the human fetus in a similar way as in the adult.

  • High Tech in Endometriosi ed Infertilità Methods • Pelvic organs were collected en-block, fixed in paraphormaldeyde and included in paraffin. We performed histological analysis of the pelvic organs for each fetus, using Hematoxylin/Eosin and Hematoxylin/Van Gieson staining. For immunohistochemistry 5-7 μm specimen sections embedded in paraffin, were cut, mounted on glass and dried overnight at 37 C. All sections were then deparaffinized in xylene, rehydrated through a graded alcohol series and washed in phosphate-buffered saline (PBS). PBS was used for all subsequent washes and for antiserum dilution. Tissue sections were quenched sequentially in 3% hydrogen peroxide in aqueous solution and blocked with PBS-6% non-fat dry milk (Biorad, Hercules, CA, U.S.A.) for 1 h at room temperature. Fondazione Italiana Endometriosi
  • High Tech in Endometriosi ed Infertilità Methods • Slides were then incubated at 4 C overnight at 1:100 dilution with the following antibodies: the affinity-purified rabbit antibody ERα for the estrogen receptor (Santa Cruz, Santa Cruz, CA, USA; cat. # sc-542) and the mouse monoclonal antibody M11 for CA125( Dako Laboratories, Carpinteria, CA, USA). After three washes in PBS to remove the excess of antiserum, the slides were incubated with diluted goat anti-rabbit or anti-mouse biotinylated antibodies (Vector Laboratories, Burlingame, CA, U.S.A.) at 1:200 dilution in PBS-3% non-fat dry milk (Biorad) for 1 h. All the slides were then processed by the ABC method (Vector Laboratories) for 30 min at room temperature. Diaminobenzidine (Vector Laboratories) was used as the final chromogen and hematoxylin was used as the nuclear counterstain. Negative controls for each tissue section were prepared by leaving out the primary antiserum. Positive controls constituted of tumor tissues expressing either the estrogen receptor or CA125, were run at the same time. All samples were processed under the same conditions.
