Effect of LPA (10− 9 M) on (a) PGE2, (b) PGF, (c) CTGF secretion by endometrial explants from mid-luteal and follicular phase of the estrous cycle at different stages of endometrosis. The endometrial explants were assigned to categories I, IIA, IIB and III according to Kenney and Doig. All values are expressed as % of control. The effect of LPA on PG and CTGF secretion in comparison to control group within each category was analyzed by nonparametric Mann-Whitney U test. Asterisks indicate statistical differences within each of Kenney and Doig category (*P < 0.05)
