RE: Pathobiology of myomatosis uteri: the underlying knowledge to support our clinical practice
- 45 Downloads
We have read the review article by Roche et al. reporting clinical evidence of the pathobiology of uterine myomatosis . There is no question that the pathobiology of myomatosis uteri is multifactorial and includes genetic factors, epigenetic factors, growth factors, sexual hormones, angiogenesis, and proinflammatory mediators. This review aids in our understanding of the mechanisms of uterine myomatosis.
Meticulous patient-centered pathobiological information is needed to help physicians better understand the pathological mechanisms of leiomyoma. Specifically, genetic testing is an important issue in all clinical fields, including genetic counseling . At present, high-resolution sequencing data can be generated in less time and at a lower cost than ever before using next-generation sequencing technologies. Our understanding of the genetics of tumor types has deepened remarkably with the emergence of next-generation sequencing technologies . Next-generation...
