Genetic variants, Early Life exposures, and Longitudinal Endometriosis symptoms Study (GELLES)
Endometriosis is a complex disease with a poorly understood aetiology. There is some evidence that implicates various genetic factors in the aetiology of the disease. Limited epidemiologic data is available on the role of early life factors, particularly in utero exposures, and symptoms during adolescence in endometriosis development. The Genetic variants, Early Life exposures, and Longitudinal Endometriosis symptoms Study (GELLES) aims to identify genetic and early life factors that contribute to the development and progression of endometriosis. The outcomes of the study will assist in the prediction of endometriosis to facilitate earlier diagnosis for young women.
