The fight against uterine fibroid tumors
Date:4/27/2010

at Urbana-Champaign, lead key projects at the Uterine Leiomyoma Research Center.

Uterine fibroids are typically treated surgically, through a myomectomy or hysterectomy, or using newer technologies involving interventional radiology or high-intensity ultrasound. GnRH agonists, developed in the 1980s, are the only class of drugs available to treat fibroids, but their success is extremely limited, and side effects prevent long-term use of the medication.

The renewable five-year P01 Program Project offers Bulun and his colleagues the opportunity to find answers to these uncertainties and diminish the suffering caused by uterine fibroids.

"This center is a unique entity," Bulun said. "We approach the translational aspects of uterine fibroids in a multidisciplinary manner. We hope our research will encourage the pharmaceutical industry and clinicians to set up clinical trials."
