The immunological impact of orthomolecular medicine using bioactive compounds as key factors in endometriosis
Background: Endometriosis, an inflammatory, non-lethal, non-malignant disease, still has unjustified etiology. Among many, the theory dealing with this review claims that a suppressed or incompetent immune system that is totally unable to eradicate the non-hemopoietic mesenchymal endometriotic stem cell (MESC) escapes immune surveillance. As a result, there is migration and invasion of the aforementioned cell to ectopic tissues causing the disease.
Keywords: bioactive compounds, functional foods, endometriosis, orthomolecular medicine, mesenchymal endometriotic stem cell (MESC), immune system
