Levels of human decidua-associated protein (hDP) 200 were measured in amniotic fluid samples, obtained from 32 induced and 21 missed abortions at 9–20 weeks of pregnancy. A 3-fold decrease in the hDP 200 level was observed between 9 and 20 weeks of normal pregnancy. Moreover, no significant difference was observed comparing the level of hDP 200 and the pattern of its decrease in missed and induced abortions. Thus, according to our results, hDP 200, being a monoclonal rheumatoid factor, is… Expand
Placental Levels of Human Decidua- Associated Protein 200 in Normal Pregnancy and Missed Abortion
The results show that the level of hDP200 in placental tissue, measured by double-site ELISA, is probably incompatible with the normal continuation of pregnancy. Expand
The Level of Human Decidua‐Associated Protein (hDP) 200, Identified as a Monoclonal Rheumatoid Factor in the Fallopian Tube
Whether ectopic pregnancy is associated with increased levels of human decidua‐associated protein (hDP) 200, identified as a monoclonal rheumatoid factor, in the related fallopian tube as compared with normal tubes is examined. Expand
Uterine secretome and its modulation in rat (Rattus norvegicus).
The present study identifies uterine fluid proteins that display differential abundance during the embryo-permissive phase in nonconception and conception cycles in rats and finds that these proteins could be detected in the culture supernatants of endometrial epithelial cell lines, thereby providing an evidence of their secretion from endometrian epithelial cells.

3. Amniotic Fluid


The level of human decidua-associated protein hDP-200, in uterine fluid and serum.
The hDP-200 levels in uterine fluid were significantly higher than those in the serum, although considerable individual variation in the level of uterine fluids h DP-200 was found. Expand
Uterine fluid human decidua-associated protein 200 and implantation after embryo transfer.
Results indicate that hDP 200, identified as a rheumatoid factor secreted by the endometrium, may be involved in the implantation process. Expand
Dramatic increase in levels of placental protein 14 in amniotic fluid at 10-15 weeks' pregnancy.
Levels of placental protein 14 increased by two orders of magnitude after 12 weeks to reach a peak at 18 weeks of pregnancy, which may reflect the obliteration of the extraembryonic coelom and direct apposition of the decidua with the chorio-amnion. Expand
Human decidua-associated protein hDP200 in menstrual fluid: comparison between fertile women and women after failed in-vitro fertilization/embryo transfer treatment.
Findings support the concept that adequate endometrial function, as evaluated by menstrual fluid concentration of hDP200, is important for the success of the fertility process. Expand
Distribution of placental protein 14 in tissues and body fluids during pregnancy
The results show that the levels of PP14 in pregnancy serum have a similar profile to hCG, but in contrast to other placental proteins, the amniotic fluid PP14 levels are remarkably high, which may be explained by suggesting that decidua is a source of PP 14. Expand
Rheumatoid factor-associated high-molecular-weight complexes in the menstrual and amniotic fluids.
It is possible that complexing of the immunoglobulins by hDP200 serves as one of the mechanisms that ensure suppression of the immune response to fetal antigens. Expand
Sequential Measurements of Human Decidua‐Associated Protein (hDP) 200 in the Uterine Fluid During the Menstrual Cycle
PROBLEM: To examine the relationship between the concentration of uterine fluid human decidua‐associated protein (hDP) 200, identified as a monoclonal rheumatoid factor, and different phases of theExpand
Amniotic fluid concentrations of secreted pregnancy‐associated endometrial α1 and α2‐globulins (α1‐ and α2‐PEG)
A high correlation was observed between the week of gestation and the log of the ratios of the concentration of these proteins, indicating the role of endometrial and decidual dysfunction in the aetiology of pregnancy disorders. Expand
Human decidua-associated protein hDP200 appears to be a rheumatoid factor.
The amino acid sequences of the amino-terminal of the two different polypeptide chains of the human decidua-associated protein hDP200 revealed that it is an immunoglobulin heavy chain, of the VH-III subgroup and the amino -terminal sequence of the 25 kDa chain showed that it was a human kappa V-III light chain.

Levels of insulin-like growth factor-binding protein-1 increase rapidly in amniotic fluid from 11 to 16 weeks of pregnancy.
The findings suggest that the regulatory role of IGFBP-1 in the growth or differentiation of the fetus or of its surrounding membranes may change as pregnancy advances. Expand
