  1. Percentage of positive cells was performed in eutopic endometrium explants obtained from women without (normal) and with endometriosis at different stages of the menstrual cycle as indicated in Material and Methods. Results are given as mean ± SEM from: 8 and 7 endometria without and with endometriosis in each stage, respectively. *p < 0.05 vs. normal endometrium. #p < 0.05 vs. proliferative phase. °p < 0.05 vs. early secretory phase.
