We are pleased to announce the latest results for our potential new world-first blood test for diagnosing endometriosis, indicating strong diagnostic performance of the test. The results were presented on Friday at the 70th Annual Meeting of the international Society for Reproductive Investigation (SRI) in Brisbane, Australia.
Endometriosis is a common and painful disease that affects one in nine women and girls, often starting in teenagers. It occurs when tissue similar to the lining of the uterus grows in other parts of the body where it does not belong.
The results are exciting and provide the basis for a potential screening test for endometriosis – a simple blood test to help determine who should have an invasive surgery and who should not.
The test is being developed in collaboration with the Royal Women’s Hospital and the University of Melbourne.
