To determine whether patients with endometriosis have altered levels of pigment epithelium-derived factor (PEDF) in peritoneal fluid, concentrations of PEDF in peritoneal fluid collected from 42 patients with endometriosis and 30 patients without endometriosis were measured with enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. We detected significantly lower levels of peritoneal fluid PEDF in patients with endometriosis compared with patients without endometriosis, suggesting that peritoneal fluid PEDF plays a role in the pathogenesis of this disorder.
