Abstract

Objective and design A systematic review of all literature was done to assess the ability of the progestin dienogest (DNG) to influence the inflammatory response of endometriotic cells. Main outcome measures In vitro and in vivo studies report an influence of DNG on the inflammatory response in eutopic or ectopic endometrial tissue (animal or human). Results After strict inclusion criteria were satisfied, 15 studies were identified that reported a DNG influence on the inflammatory response in endometrial tissue. These studies identified a modulation of prostaglandin (PG) pro- duction and metabolism (PGE2, PGE2 synthase, cyclo- oxygenase-2 and microsomal PGE synthase-1), pro-in- flammatory cytokine and chemokine production [interleukin (IL)-1b, IL-6, IL-8, tumor necrosis factor-a, monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 and stromal cell- derived factor-1], growth factor biosynthesis (vascular endothelial growth factor and nerve growth factor) and signaling kinases, responsible for the control of inflam- Responsible Editor: Bernhard Gibbs. & Brett McKinnon brett.mckinnon@dkf.unibe.ch mation.
