Applicability of self-obtained urine and vaginal samples for HPV-16,-18,-31 and-45 cervical cancer screening in pregnancy: a pilot cross-sectional study
Aim:To conduct a pilot cross-sectional study to evaluate the rates of detection of four common high-risk HPV (hr-HPV) types using first-void urine paired with vaginal self-obtained samples in a nonvaccinated population of ...
Angiopoietin-1 and angiopoietin-2 as serum biomarkers for ectopic pregnancy and missed abortion A case-control study
Background: A case-control study to evaluate whether a single serum measurement of angiopoietin-1 (ANG-1) and angiopoietin-2 (ANG-2) at 6-8 weeks gestation can differentiate failed pregnancies, whether ectopic pregnancies ...
The role of MRI in young adolescent girls with hematocolpos
Imperforate hymen is a relatively rare congenital anomaly which may lead to the development of hematocolpos during puberty. Clinical examination reveals imperforate hymen but abdominal ultrasound and tumor markers findings ...
Serum interleukin-1 beta, interleukin-8 and anti-heat shock 60 Chlamydia trachomatis antibodies as markers of ectopic pregnancy
Anti-Chlamydial trachomatis (anti-CT) responses, particularly anti-heat shock 60 (Hsp60), antibodies confer a higher risk of ectopic pregnancy. With emerging evidence supporting the pivotal role of interleukin-1 beta (IL-1 ...
Interleukin-15 (IL-15) and Anti-C1q Antibodies as Serum Biomarkers for Ectopic Pregnancy and Missed Abortion
Given the present lack of clinically useful tests for the accurate diagnosis of ectopic pregnancy (EP), there is a need to select out those immunological factors measured in the maternal serum, as potential biomarkers. Our ...
Activin A and Follistatin as Biomarkers for Ectopic Pregnancy and Missed Abortion
Activin A as a predictor of pregnancy failure has been the focus of heated debate, but the value of a combined activin A and follistatin (FS) measurement in serum to predict pregnancy failure has not been reported yet. We ...
