41. Association of the protein tyrosine phosphatase non-receptor 22 polymorphism (PTPN22) with endometriosis: a meta-analysis. (Full text)

Association of the protein tyrosine phosphatase non-receptor 22 polymorphism (PTPN22) with endometriosis: a meta-analysis. To evaluate PTPN22 C1858T polymorphism and the risk of endometriosis.A meta-analysis of 10 published case-control studies (from four articles), with a total sample of 971 cases and 1,181 controls, was performed. We estimated risk (odds ratio and 95% confidence intervals) of endometriosis associations with the C1858T polymorphism.A significant increased risk in all genetic (...) models of the variant T allele with endometriosis (odds ratio: 3.14-5.55; p<0.00001-0.002) was found. The analysis without the study whose controls deviated from the Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium exacerbated these effects in the homozygous and recessive models (odds ratio: 7.19-9.45; p<0.00001-0.0002). In the Italian subgroup, a significant risk association was found in the homozygous and recessive models (odds ratio: 8.72-11.12; p=0.002).The associations observed between PTPN22 (C1858T) and the risk

In women with endometriosis, similar cells exist inside the abdomen (and rarely in other parts of the body), and these also bleed during a period. This bleeding creates inflammation, scarring and may cause organs and tissues to stick together – these effects cause pain. The aim of hormone treatment is to reduce or stop this bleeding so that these effects are reduced or do not happen. Most women with endometriosis are asked to think about
