    Abstract: Endometriosis is a major health issue among women of reproductive age. However, its etiology has not yet been completely understood. We investigated 10 single nucleotide polymorphisms from six novel nucleotide excision repair genes and the susceptibility to endometriosis. A total of 153 patients with endometriosis were recruited during 2000–2010 from central Taiwan. Pathological confirmation was necessary for all patients, and exclusion criteria included the presence of leiomyoma, adenomyosis, or cancer of the uterine, cervix, or ovary and a prescription of hormone therapy. Furthermore, a total of 636 age-matched individuals without endometriosis were recruited during the same time period from central Taiwan. The polymerase chain reaction coupled with restriction fragment length polymorphism methodology was applied for genotyping. The multivariate logistic regression analysis showed that subjects carrying the ERCC1 rs11615 TT (OR = 2.04, 95% CI = 1.36–3.41), ERCC2 rs1799793 AA (OR = 1.86, 95% CI = 1.14–3.11), and ERCC6 rs2228528 AA genotypes (OR = 1.79, 95% CI = 1.13–2.83) exhibited significantly increased risks of developing endometriosis compared with their counterparts carrying the wild-type genotypes. This study suggests that certain single nucleotide polymorphisms of nucleotide excision repair genes excision repair cross-complementation group 1 (ERCC1, ERCC2, and ERCC6) predispose women to the development of endometriosis.
