Trial Purpose and Description
Our scientific premise is that in women with endometriosis, elevated cardiovascular disease risk is the result of endothelial dysfunction and chronic systemic inflammation through lectin-like oxidized low-density lipoprotein receptor-1 (LOX-1) receptor activation. This cardiovascular disease risk is exacerbated by standard estrogen suppression treatments.
