Haptoglobin (Hp) possesses many functions in the immune system and angiogenesis as well as scavenging released hemoglobin, and thus it is speculated that Hp may also play a critical role in the reproductive process. To investigate the possible involvement of Hp in the outcome of in vitro fertilization and embryo transfer (IVF-ET), the serum Hp of 50 patients who underwent IVF-ET was analyzed by the Western blot method. The results showed a higher pregnancy rate in the patients with the Hp2-2… CONTINUE READING
