Fibroid Tumor Research

Over 70% of women will develop uterine fibroid tumors at some point in their lives. Dr. Wallace Berry’s research has established the chicken as a valid system for studying reproductive tract fibroids. Using laying hens as their model, Dr. Berry and Dr. Haruka Wada of Biological Sciences are studying how nutrition and age at puberty affect the onset of these tumors. The ultimate goal of this research is to reduce or prevent the incidence of reproductive tract fibroids in humans and hens.
