Despite the wide range of diagnostic and treatment capabilities of solving the problem of endometrioid ovarian cysts, the recurrence rate of the disease and absence of sustained remission period after the onset of pregnancy indicate the necessity of search of new approaches to the management of this category of pa­tients.

Study found that in patients who received conven­tional therapy (antibiotics and anti-adhesion therapy) at the end of treatment there was observed the initial activation of humoral immune system, indicating the need for immunocorrection. In patients who received a complex therapy with the use of immunomodulator galavit and natural onkoprotector with antipro­liferative mechanism of action Indole-F, there were detected the normalization of immune homeostasis and stabilization of the processes of proliferation and apoptosis as the main etiopathogenetic links of en­dometrial disease. During ultrasound investigation in the dynamics after 1 and 3 months in individuals who continued to receive Indole-F in combination with hormonal therapy reducing the size of abnormal ovary formation was detected in comparison with women, who didn’t receive such treatment. Along with a favor­able impact on endometriosis heterotopia Indole-F had a pronounced antiproliferative effect on hyper­plastic endometrium, diagnosed before treatment in 27 % of patients. After 3 months of treatment there was no necessity to conduct a biopsy of the endometrium in this group of patients.

Key words: endometrioid ovarian cysts, reproductive age, immunocorrection, Indole-F, galavit.
