DESCRIPTION

The innate immune response can play a significant role in triggering infection-associated infertility and recurrent pregnancy loss (RPL). At FERTILYSIS we utilize RT-PCR to analyze the expression patterns of local inflammatory biomarkers of the lower genital tract. The resulting immunological profile can be used to assess the presence or absence of inflammatory reaction in the vagina and can be used as a diagnostic criterion for resolving discrepancies between laboratory data and clinical manifestations, as well as for choosing effective therapy. There is emerging evidence which show that timely detection of local inflammation in patients at high risk of preterm delivery, can help to expedite adequate measures aimed to prolong their pregnancies.

* Please be advised that the turnaround time for specialized diagnostic tests is indicative and not guaranteed and may be extended due to a variety of factors, including but not limited to need for additional clinical evaluation of results, repeat of analysis in cases of unclear or ambiguous results and need for resampling in case of inadequate specimen quality. Therefore, the results will be available in the indicated timeframe as long as there are no additional overheads, as stated above, that may extend turnaround time.
