Uterine fibroids are the most common disease of reproductive-age women, affecting 25% of African American women at the age of 25 1, and up to 80% African American women by the age of menopause.2,3 Although it is clear that uterine fibroids are a health disparity issue4, they affect women of all races and add billions of dollars in cost each year to the US health care system. Globally as well, uterine fibroids are among the most significant diseases of reproductive-age women. Despite the magnitude of the problem, nonsurgical and medical options for treatment are extremely limited.
One reason for the limited treatment options is that funding for research on uterine fibroids has been sparse in comparison to the scope of the problem. Uterine fibroids are wholly deserving of research effort because investments will also inform the disciplines and fields of: tumor biology, angiogenesis, mechanical signaling, fibrosis, and genetics. Consider for a moment that uterine fibroids frequently grow many centimeters in size but only very rarely will metastasize. Thus, investment of resources will pay dividends not only for the understanding of uterine fibroids but also for many pathophysiologic states and other fields of medicine. Recently, PCORI has launched an initiative to address this disparity of research funding. This issue of Reproductive Sciences is significant because it reflects a dividend of investment of resources and investigator effort to address this prevalent disease.(1)
