Human uterine fibroids are benign tumors derived from the smooth muscle layers of the uterus. Fibroid disease impacts up to 50% of premenopausal women in their daily life, and accounts for up to 50% of hysterectomies in the United States. Despite the health burden they impose, the development of these tumors is barely understood. To improve our understanding of this disease, we developed and characterized a patient-derived xenograft models by transplanting small pieces of human uterine fibroid tissue subcutaneously into immunodeficient mice. Growth of the fibroid grafts was dependent on 17beta-estradiol and progesterone supplementation and maintained for up to 60 days. A gene expression profiling study was performed in order to determine molecular characteristis of well-grown compared to not-grown uterine fibroid xenografts.
