Special Edition on Advancements and Management of Reproductive Disorders
There are times when limited health care facilities and lack of excellent equipment
result in slower recovery and delayed treatment of a disease thus leaving patients suffer for
We often innovate to acquire the best outcomes from the resources we possess.
Innovative practices become valuable tools for clinicians, surgeons, and scientists.
Discovery of novel approaches and better management practices enable us
to adopt better line of treatment and consequently to make patients feel better.
This can be exemplified by the historic remarkable work of Edward Jenner
whose strategy of inoculating, with the matter from smallpox lesions,
and curing the boy was an innovative contribution to immunization which led to
eradication of small pox.
His great idea became basis of immunization and thus a foundation of immunology.
The process of investigation of complex and multifactorial diseases is closely associated
with on-bench research and its applied version in clinics.
For instance, endometriosis is an enigmatic gynecologic disease of reproductive aged-women.
In addition to chronic pelvic pain and dysmenorrhea, patients often present to their physicians
with other associated symptoms, including dyspareunia, dyschezia, dysuria and infertility.
Due to these symptoms endometriosis is a highly debilitating disease.
Treatment options for endometriosis patients are limited to surgery, hormone therapy
Therefore, strategies may vary from case to case depending upon the nature
of severity of the endometriotic lesions and factors such as age, heredity, number of parities, etc.
These case-based approaches become criteria of clinical endometriosis-research
conducted in laboratories to explore and determine molecular mechanisms of pathogenesis
and develop and set a proof of principle.
