Abstract

Purpose: To compare fibulin-3 (FIB-3) and fibulin-5 (FIB-5) expressions in uterosacral ligaments (USL) of women with and without uterine prolapse. Study design: USL were sampled in a standardized fashion from women with (n = 8) or without (n = 8) uterine prolapse. Quantitative Real-Time PCR was performed to measure mRNA and immunohistochemistry to assess protein expression. Results: FIB-3 mRNA expression and FIB-3 staining intensity was similar in the USL of women with and without uterine prolapse {[(FIB-3 mean ± SD mRNA relative units) 0.45 ± 0.41 vs. 0.46 ± 0.82, NS] and [Intensity score, median (range), 1(0-1) vs. 1(0-1), NS]}. Both FIB-5 mRNA expression and FIB-5 staining intensity was significantly decreased in USL from women with uterine prolapse compared to women without prolapse {[(FIB-5 mean ± SD mRNA relative units) 0.07 ± 0.02 vs. 0.26 ± 0.20, P = 0.02] and [Intensity score, median (range), 0(0-2) vs. 3(2-3), P = 0.002]}. Conclusion: FIB-5 expression is decreased in USL of women with uterine prolapse.
