Abstract / Description of output
The human endometrium has an exceptional capacity for repeated repair after menses, but its regulation remains undefined. Premenstrually, progesterone levels fall and prostaglandin (PG) F₂α synthesis increases, causing spiral arteriole constriction. We hypothesized that progesterone withdrawal, PGF₂α, and hypoxia increase vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), an endometrial repair factor.
