Endometriosis, a chronic disease that afflicts millions of women worldwide, has traditionally been diagnosed by laparoscopic surgery.

Development of a non-invasive diagnostic test could significantly improve timely disease detection. We tested the feasibility of serum microRNAs as diagnostic biomarkers of endometriosis in women with gynecologic disease symptoms.
