Research & Development
Uterine fibroids (myoma) are the most common benign, solid tumours of the female genital tract in women of reproductive age. Beyond its physical morbidity, the condition is a frequent cause of significant impairment of quality of life and a leading reason for hysterectomy.
Endometriosis is a benign gynaecological disease characterised by the presence of functional endometrial tissue fragments growing outside the uterus cavity. The major symptoms are chronic pelvic pain, painful menstruations and dyspareunia (painful sexual intercourse).
Infertility is a condition described as the failure to conceive after regular unprotected intercourse. It affects 10 million couples in the EU, 6 million in the USA and 80 million worldwide.
