Summary of "First trimester maternal serum alpha fetoprotein is associated with ischemic placental disease."

While elevated second trimester maternal serum alpha fetoprotein (msAFP) has been associated with adverse pregnancy outcomes, the utility of first trimester msAFP in predicting these outcomes is limited. Some laboratories have been including msAFP as part of the first trimester analyte screening for aneuploidy and preeclampsia, offering its potential utility in predicting pregnancy outcomes.

A rat model of placental inflammation explains the unexplained elevated maternal serum alpha-fetoprotein associated with adverse pregnancy outcomes.

It has been reported in numerous studies that elevated maternal serum alpha-fetoprotein (MS-AFP) is associated with adverse pregnancy outcomes (APO), such as pre-eclampsia, stillbirth, preterm birth a...

Prediction of Preeclampsia in Nulliparous Women according to First Trimester Maternal Factors and Serum Markers.

Development and potential application of a simultaneous multiplex assay of Golgi protein 73 and alpha-fetoprotein for hepatocellular carcinoma diagnosis.

Detecting a single serum marker, such as Golgi protein 73 (GP73) or alpha-fetoprotein (AFP), may not meet the requirements for the early diagnosis of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) due to low sensitiv...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The first alpha-globulins to appear in mammalian sera during development of the embryo and the dominant serum proteins in early embryonic life. They reappear in the adult serum during certain pathologic states, primarily hepatocellular carcinoma. They may also be elevated in the amniotic fluid and maternal serum during pregnancy in ANENCEPHALY.

A clear, yellowish liquid that envelopes the FETUS inside the sac of AMNION. In the first trimester, it is likely a transudate of maternal or fetal plasma. In the second trimester, amniotic fluid derives primarily from fetal lung and kidney. Cells or substances in this fluid can be removed for prenatal diagnostic tests (AMNIOCENTESIS).

All blood proteins except albumin ( = SERUM ALBUMIN, which is not a globulin) and FIBRINOGEN (which is not in the serum). The serum globulins are subdivided into ALPHA-GLOBULINS; BETA-GLOBULINS; and GAMMA-GLOBULINS on the basis of their electrophoretic mobilities. (From Dorland, 28th ed)

The production of red blood cells (ERYTHROCYTES). In humans, erythrocytes are produced by the YOLK SAC in the first trimester; by the liver in the second trimester; by the BONE MARROW in the third trimester and after birth. In normal individuals, the erythrocyte count in the peripheral blood remains relatively constant implying a balance between the rate of erythrocyte production and rate of destruction.

Transmission of genetic characters, qualities, and traits, solely from maternal extra-nuclear elements such as MITOCHONDRIAL DNA or MATERNAL MESSENGER RNA.
