Study to identify biomarkers in endometriosis

If you have pelvic pain and need to undergo surgery you may qualify to participate in a study to identify possible biomarkers in women with endometriosis.

Researchers at Oxford University are seeking female volunteers to participate in a research study looking at potential markers in endometriosis.

To qualify for the study you need to be

  • about to commence surgical treatment for endometriosis and/or pelvic pain
  • between the age of 18 and the menopause
