Brief Title

Evaluation of the Axonemal Dynein Heavy Chain 5 and Creatine Kinase Concentration in Cervical Fluid for Early Detection of the Ectopic Pregnancy

Brief Summary

      Patients who have doubt for ectopic pregnancy will be enrolled for our study. These patients
      will be determined with using irregular increased human chorionic gonadotropin (beta-HCG)
      results and no embryo reported ultrasonography results. Plasma and cervical fluid samples
      will be taken from these patients and axonemal dynein heavy chain 5 and creatine kinase
      levels of samples will be compared between patients who have doubt for ectopic pregnancy and
      patients who have intrauterine pregnancy. Concentration of these proteins in samples will be
      evaluated. If any difference will be found between groups in favour of ectopic pregnancy,
      these results might be interpreted as these proteins useful for early detecting of the
      ectopic pregnancy.
