Abstract

In this study, we investigated the expression profiles of Toll-like receptors(TLRs) in eutopic endometrium(EU) and ectopic endometrium(EC) and its implication in the inflammatory pathogenesis of adenomyosis. Thirty adenomyosis patients who underwent laparoscopy were recruited in this study. We tested the mRNA and protein expression of TLRs, and the mRNA expression of IL-6 and IL-8 in EU and EC of adenomyosis patients, and control endometrium without adenomyosis(CE). We found that the mRNA expression of IL-6 and IL-8 in EU was significantly higher than that in CE, and was the highest in EC (P < 0.01). The mRNA and protein expression of TLRs were higher in EU, with the expression of TLR1-6, 8 and 9 being significantly higher in EU than in CE, and were the highest in EC (except TLR6) (P < 0.05 or P < 0.01). Pearson correlation analysis showed that the expression of TLR1, 2, 4, 5 and 9 in EU and EC was positively correlated with that of IL-6 and IL-8 (P < 0.00139). This study suggested that adenomyosis was a state of inflammatory pathology. High expression of TLRs in EU and EC were positively correlated with IL-6 and IL-8, which may be involved in the inflammatory pathogenesis of adenomyosis.
