Progesterone receptor-B mRNA levels in leiomyoma tissue are directly associated with the number of tumors and inversely correlated with the intensity of intermenstrual bleeding and dysmenorrhea.

Melatonin receptor expression is upregulated in the pregnant human myometrium at the time of labor, leading to synergism with oxytocin signaling to promote high uterine contractility and parturition at night.

Magnetic resonance imaging–guided focused ultrasound surgery, cryomyolysis, and transcervical temporary occlusion of the uterine arteries are emerging, minimally invasive options for leiomyomas therapy.

Leiomyoma and myometrial cells in three-dimensional leiomyoma cultures treated with liarozole resulted in decreased expression of transforming growth factor b3 (TGF-b3) and TGF-b3-regulated extracellular matrix.

In this work, we offer an overview of the current knowledge about somatic stem cells in murine and human myometrium and their putative implication in human leiomyoma formation.

Estradiol and tamoxifen enhance invasion of both adenomyosis-derived stromal cells and control stromal cells when grown on collagen or in coculture with myocytes.

Gonadotropin-releasing hormone analogues leuprolide acetate and cetrorelix acetate directly regulate extracellular matrix components COL1A1, fibronectin, and versican in human uterine leiomyoma cells relative to patient-matched myometrial cells.
