The article presents a study which evaluates the levels of anti-Mullerian hormone (AMH), AMHRII mRNA, and its protein expression in endometrium among women with endometriosis. Noted are a group of women with regular menstrual cycles undergoing gynecologic surgery, laparoscopic treatment for pain and/or infertility, and the non-endometriosis group. Results indicated that AMH and AMHRII mRNA expression had been significantly higher in endometrium of endometriotic women than in control groups.

It states that AMC is...

    Anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH) is synthesised in the Sertoli cells of the testes and granulosa cells of the ovary. As the ovaries seem to be the primary source of AMH, it may be used for determination of the presence or absence of ovaries or ovarian remnants in mammalians. The purpose of the...
