You Can Help Us Learn More About Endometriosis
Pelvic Rehabilitation Medicine has partnered with Northwell Health in the Research OutSmarts Endometriosis (ROSE) Study to help discover an early detection test for endometriosis. The research and participant selection is being done through the Feinstein Institute for Medical Research at Northwell Health in partnership with the Endometriosis Foundation of America and Pelvic Rehabilitation Medicine.
If you’re a woman living with endometriosis, or you suspect you might have it and are scheduled to have surgical treatment, you may be eligible to participate in the ROSE Study. Your immediate family (siblings, parents, and children), if they do not have endometriosis, may also be eligible to join the study. ROSE Study researchers are exploring what causes endometriosis and if a better treatment can be developed. To participate in the study, you will be asked to:
1. Older than 18 years
2. Not pregnant or breastfeeding
To participate in the study, you must be:
1. Share medical/demographic information
2. Answer questions about how endometriosis affects her life
3. Provide a blood sample (from the arm)
4. Offer a sample of menstrual flow that can be collected at home using a simple procedure; this collection is optional
5. Allow ROSE Study researchers to collect excess endometrial tissue samples from a past or future surgery
Participants will be compensated for their participation.
If you would like to learn more about how you may play a part in improving the understanding of endometriosis, please contact a research nurse at 516-562-ENDO (3636), email ROSE@northwell.edu, or visit us at ResearchOutSmartsEndo.org.
