Nanoparticles Show Promise for Locating Endometriosis Lesions

The animal-model study, published today in the journal Small, shows that the iron oxide nanoparticles, injected intravenously, act as a contrast agent – they accumulate in the lesions, making them easier to see by advanced imaging such as MRI. And when exposed to an alternating magnetic field, a non-invasive procedure, the nanoparticles’ temperature soars to … Read more

Hands On Endometriosis and Ovarian Cancer: Are They Connected?

[ad_1] Dr. Sally Mortlock and and Prof. Grant Montgomery of the UQ’s Institute for Molecular Bioscience conducted a large-scale genetic study to identify the genetic basis for this risk with the aim of better understanding the biological overview between these reproductive disorders. “More information about how they develop, their associated risk factors, and the pathways … Read more
