Gestational Trophoblastic Neoplasia After Human Chorionic Gonadotropin Normalization Following Molar Pregnancy: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis.

To estimate the incidence of gestational trophoblastic neoplasia following complete and partial molar pregnancy after reaching normal human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) levels to guide evidence-based ...

Home pregnancy tests in the hands of the intended user.

The objectives of this study were to investigate the usability and performance of seven visual home pregnancy tests, available in Europe. Part one of the study was home-based and involved volunteers t...

The postnatal presence of human chorionic gonadotropin in preterm infants and its potential inverse association with retinopathy of prematurity.

Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) and luteinizing hormone (LH) are pro-angiogenic gonadotropic hormones, which classically target the reproductive organs. However, hCG, LH, and their shared CG/LH rec...

Human chorionic gonadotropin promotes recruitment of regulatory T cells in endometrium by inducing chemokine CCL2.

Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) can attract regulatory T cells (Tregs) into the fetal-maternal interface regulating maternal immune tolerance in pregnancy. The objective of this study was to invest...

Factors associated with extremely high progesterone concentrations on the day of HCG administration.

Progesterone elevation on the day of human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) administration remains one of the most controversial topics in reproductive endocrinology. Factors associated with these increas...

Supplementation With Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG) During Controlled Ovarian Stimulation With Recombinant Follicle-Stimulating Hormone (FSH) for In Vitro Fertilisation

The purpose of this trial is to study whether addition of different doses of human chorionic gonadotropins during controlled ovarian stimulation for patients undergoing IVF will improve th...

Human Menopausal Gonadotropin Combining With Human Chorionic Gonadotropin Treat Congenital Hypogonadotropic Hypogonadism

Observe the therapeutic efficacy of human menopausal gonadotropin combining with human chorionic gonadotropin in adolescent boys with congenital hypogonadotropic hypogonadism.

HOP-3 Manipulation of the Intratesticular Hormonal Milieu With Exogenous Testosterone

The purpose of this investigational study is to determine how much male hormone, testosterone, is necessary to maintain sperm production in the testis. This knowledge will be used to help...

Endometrial Advancement After Rec or u-HCG Triggering

The purpose of this study is to investigate any potential advantages of replacing human chorionic gonadotropin (uhCG) with recombinant human chorionic gonadotropin (recHCG) for final oocyt...

Intrauterine Injection of Human Chorionic Gonadotrophin and Pregnancy Rate in ICSI

Despite recent advances in clinical and laboratory techniques of Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART), the pregnancy rate remains around 30% per cycle. It has been estimated that 50% to ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Trophoblastic hyperplasia associated with normal gestation, or molar pregnancy. It is characterized by the swelling of the CHORIONIC VILLI and elevated human CHORIONIC GONADOTROPIN. Hydatidiform moles or molar pregnancy may be categorized as complete or partial based on their gross morphology, histopathology, and karyotype.

The beta subunit of human CHORIONIC GONADOTROPIN. Its structure is similar to the beta subunit of LUTEINIZING HORMONE, except for the additional 30 amino acids at the carboxy end with the associated carbohydrate residues. HCG-beta is used as a diagnostic marker for early detection of pregnancy, spontaneous abortion (ABORTION, SPONTANEOUS); ECTOPIC PREGNANCY; HYDATIDIFORM MOLE; CHORIOCARCINOMA; or DOWN SYNDROME.

A gonadotropic glycoprotein hormone produced primarily by the PLACENTA. Similar to the pituitary LUTEINIZING HORMONE in structure and function, chorionic gonadotropin is involved in maintaining the CORPUS LUTEUM during pregnancy. CG consists of two noncovalently linked subunits, alpha and beta. Within a species, the alpha subunit is virtually identical to the alpha subunits of the three pituitary glycoprotein hormones (TSH, LH, and FSH), but the beta subunit is unique and confers its biological specificity (CHORIONIC GONADOTROPIN, BETA SUBUNIT, HUMAN).

Methods of detecting pregnancy by examining the levels of human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) in plasma or urine.

A group of diseases arising from pregnancy that are commonly associated with hyperplasia of trophoblasts (TROPHOBLAST) and markedly elevated human CHORIONIC GONADOTROPIN. They include HYDATIDIFORM MOLE, invasive mole (HYDATIDIFORM MOLE, INVASIVE), placental-site trophoblastic tumor (TROPHOBLASTIC TUMOR, PLACENTAL SITE), and CHORIOCARCINOMA. These neoplasms have varying propensities for invasion and spread.
