  • Researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis have found that treating mice with an antibiotic reduces the size of lesions caused by endometriosis. The researchers are planning a clinical trial to test the strategy in women who have the painful condition. The work also suggests that increasing the numbers of certain bacteria in the gut microbiome may help prevent problems associated with endometriosis, particularly in women who also are at risk for inflammatory bowel disease.
