Background:Genital endometriosis is characterized with the problems of immune homeostasis. The aim of present study was to determine the correlation between autoimmune and inflammation mediators in women with genital endometriosis.
Material and methods:100 reproductive age women with genital endometriosis were included in present study. We have determined the levels of TNF-α as anti-inflammatory cytokine and antiendometrial antibodies (AEA) in peripheral blood of women by standard ELISA method.
Results: It was detected statistically significant positive correlation between AEA and TNF-α in women with genital endometriosis (p<0.05).
Conclusion: Increased inflammation stimulates the synthesis of autoimmune antibodies in women with genital endometriosis.
