MMRF's Women's Health Research Program works in partnership with the HCMC Vulvovaginits Center to study the treatment and prevention of women's diseases including yeast infections, sexually transmitted disease, breast cancer and postmenopausal health. Research is also being conducted in several other areas of women's health including contraception methods, surgical and incontinence devices, infertility and prevention of premature or low birth weight babies.
In the laboratory, basic science researchers are working to develop new early diagnostic procedures to test for cancer and causes of infertility. They are also researching bacterial infections that can trigger the maternal immune response and possibly lead to pre-term labor and perinatal death.
The work of MMRF researchers, combined with the clinical experience of physicians, should lead to further understanding of many gynecological conditions. This new knowledge, combined with early detection methods and new treatment therapies, will lead to advances in women's health in the future.
