endo may grow own nerves (study)

I bumped into this account in Reuters of a study that will appear in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, which is a good journal. There's no treatment advice with it, but I thought it would help some of you sufferers to know that it's NOT in your head and you AREN'T whining.

I couldn't find the study on their website, but here's excerpts from what Reuter's said:

Findings from an animal study suggest that nerve growth plays a key role not only in the pain seen with endometriosis, but also in perpetuating the disease itself. One possibility, not previously considered, is that the tissue growths can develop their own nerve supply, according to the report published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Using rats with endometriosis, Dr. Karen J. Berkley, from Florida State University in Tallahassee, and colleagues have shown that endometrial tissue is capable of developing its own nerve supply. The authors believe that the findings could ultimately lead to improved treatments for the disease.
