The article focuses on a research which aims at comparing the expression of the microRNA in eutopic endometrium of women. It states women that were examined were with or without ovarian endometriosis. As mentioned, the study was conducted on 46 women having regular menstrual cycles whereas 21 having ovarian endometriosis and 25 who had underwent surgeries. According to the result of the study, microRNA plays an important role in women having ovarian endometriosis.
