PROBLEM: The aim of this study was to examine 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.

Human Decidua‐Associated Protein (hDP) 200 Identified as a Monoclonal Rheumatoid Factor Is Not an Acute Phase Reactant
TLDR
This study examines if this protein, being an immunoglobulin, participates in the inflammatory processes involving the uterus as well as identifying its role as a monoclonal rheumatoid factor. 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
Intrauterine Levels of Human Decidua-Associated Protein (hDP) 200 in Normal Pregnancy and Missed Abortion
TLDR
HDP 200, being a monoclonal rheumatoid factor, is probably not required for the continuation of normal pregnancy, and no significant difference was observed comparing the level of hDP 200 and the pattern of its decrease in missed and induced abortions. Expand
Rheumatoid factor-associated high-molecular-weight complexes in the menstrual and amniotic fluids.
TLDR
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
The level of human decidua-associated protein hDP-200, in uterine fluid and serum.
TLDR
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
Human decidua-associated protein hDP200 appears to be a rheumatoid factor.
TLDR
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.

Uterine fluid human decidua-associated protein 200 and implantation after embryo transfer.
TLDR
Results indicate that hDP 200, identified as a rheumatoid factor secreted by the endometrium, may be involved in the implantation process. Expand
Human fallopian tube contains placental protein 14.
TLDR
The occurrence of the same protein in the endometrium and fallopian tube is compatible with the common embryonic origin from the müllerian duct of these tissues. Expand
Human decidua-associated protein hDP200 in menstrual fluid: comparison between fertile women and women after failed in-vitro fertilization/embryo transfer treatment.
TLDR
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
Identification, immunoaffinity purification and partial characterization of a human decidua-associated protein.
TLDR
The data suggest that hDP200 is a novel human decidua-associated protein that did not react with polyclonal antibodies specific for PP12 and PP14 and is suggested to be a subunit of the hDP55. Expand
