We are looking for women who suffer from endometriosis pain and would like to participate in a global Clinical Endometriosis Trial.
The purpose of the trial is to investigate different dose combinations of the study drug applied by an intravaginal ring for the treatment of endometriosis pain.
You may be suitable for the trial if the following apply to you:
- You are at least 18 years of age, but have not yet reached menopause
- Endometriosis has been confirmed within 10 years by laparoscopy or laparotomy

Identification of a Novel Diagnostic Marker for Endometriosis:
Are you interested in participating in a research study conducted by Dr. Foster and Dr. Leyland, who are looking to identify a novel marker for endometriosis? The study is designed to determine the usefulness of a novel marker for the diagnosis of endometriosis. We are looking for women who will be undergoing a pelvic laparoscopy surgery who have endometriosis and some who do not have endometriosis to participate in this study. The samples needed for this study can be collected during your surgery, which is a small piece of endometrium and this is collected for analysis in the laboratory. Prior to the surgery, you will asked for a blood & urine sample. We will also conduct a questionnaire concerning your gynecological history. There is no more added risk to you than your surgery.
